Relentless Beat of the Week: Hannah Wants – ‘Girls & Boys’

As you’d expect from a former professional women’s football player, Hannah Wants does not hold back. Born Hannah Alicia Smith, the London-based DJ and producer has developed quite a name for herself, thanks to accolades like Mixmag’s 2014 Star of the Year and the DJ Award’s Best Bass DJ of 2015, and performances at EDC Las Vegas, Coachella, and a three-year summer residency at Amnesia in Ibiza.

The self-taught artist discovered her passion at her first EDM show at age 16, prompting her to practice at home, where she started experimenting with Speed Garage and Bassline House. By 18, she was playing at local bars and spending seasons in Ibiza. This all occurred around the same time as her professional football career, in which she played for England’s national women’s team for over a decade before retiring at age 23 to focus on her music career.

Thank you Hannah Wants for making this career change and blessing us with the gift that is your music. This week’s Relentless Beat of the Week is Hannah Wants’ latest release, “Girls & Boys.” Check it out below.

For classic house fans, this song does not disappoint. With a steady high-tempo beat, rising sirens and drums building in the background, this track will keep you moving. If you’re interested in seeing this one live, along with many other Hannah Wants bangers, be sure to catch her at Shady Park in Tempe on Saturday, April 21. Grab your tickets here.
