Heading up the techy end of Dutch hard dance, D-Block & S-te-Fan kicked off 2011 in style, selling out the HMH stadium in Amsterdam as a prelude to their world tour, followed by a “full-on festival season”. Release-wise, the duo also enjoyed another prolific year. “Besides the shows, we had our most productive year in the studio, we made 25 songs,” D-Block says. Although, they explain, this studio productivity was never part of the grand plan for 2011. “It just happened. We are always in the studio and sometimes it works out better than the day or year before. The track which gave us a lot of online exposure this year was 'The Magical Mystery', featuring MC Villain.” 2012 will simply see the duo continuing their hard work, both in the studio and on the road. “We will make as much new music as possible and keep our shows fresh and exciting.” Who could ask for more?
