Mainstays of the Top 100 DJs poll, appearing annually for the last five editions, Da Tweekaz need no introduction. Just in case, though, the Norwegian hardstyle dons — aka Marcus Nordli and Kenth Kvien — began their journey to fast noise fame at a party in 2004. By 2007, their work was being stolen by internet gremlins and leaked across Russia, Poland and Germany, causing the scene to stand up and take notice, even if the artists themselves weren’t benefitting from the illegitimate exposure.
Between then and now there have been plenty of career-defining moments, not least signing to the legendary United Records, and collaborating with one of the true rave heroes, Darren Styles. A long list of bangers — the pair delivered one track a month during 2014 alone — regularly soundtrack the more intense side of the international events calendar, with a horde of these bombs based on reworked film and TV soundtracks, such as this year’s Game Of Thrones edit. Over the past 12 months, their talent has taken them to events like Tomorrowland and Insomniac, not to mention World Club Dome and Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, dates that formed part of their landmark Tweeka Tour.
