Wasted Penguinz describe hardstyle as "150bpm pure euphoria", and with their motto of 'Get Wasted N' Do It', they are clearly out to have a good time.

"We're actually very serious with our music and our goals and what we want to achieve," they tell DJ Mag, "but would you prefer watching your favourite DJ stand completely still behind the decks waving his hands in the air one time when the climax drops, or would you prefer two crazy guys drinking beer, jumping, using the mic, taking in the energy from the crowd and trying to give our own energy back to make the best of it?" The exuberant duo has big ambitions for their own sound, which they dub "euphoric hardstyle". "We always want a specific feeling for each track. Putting our emotions into the track is very important.

It has to have an epic melody and an epic atmosphere overall." 2012 has been a busy one and 2013 looks like taking things further. "Gigs doubled for us this year and we got heaps of new tracks and collabs done. Next year will be even better, We're currently working on our first album. Good things to come!"
