“The last year has been crazy in general,” Dutch duo W&W tell DJ Mag excitedly. “We released so much new music, collaborated with two of the world’s biggest DJs — Armin van Buuren and Hardwell — and we did more than twice as many shows as 2012.”
It’s little wonder Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harstare hard pushed to single out a particular highlight.
“Getting our first Beatport No.1 hit with ‘The Code’ was definitely a milestone,” they say.Aside from that particular stomping, trance-edged anthem, their fans played a vital part in the release of another of their huge tunes this year.
“We finished our track ‘Thunder’ in a hotel room about six hours before we premiered it at UMF in Miami,” reveal the duo. “We didn’t want to release it but after we saw the massive reaction from the crowd we had no choice!”
