Prolific would be one way to describe the partnership of Lucas de Wert and Steven Jansen. One of many Dutch acts in our annual poll, they’ve gone from rising hopefuls to headliners since their creative talents first aligned seven years ago, a meeting of minds that has given the world plenty of dancefloor ammunition in that time. Signing to the relentless hit-making machine Spinnin’ Records in 2014 marked the start of a string of huge releases, and this shows no sign of stopping any time soon.
This year alone has seen them deliver work like ‘Calling On You’, alongside Jake Reese, hitting the Billboard Top 40 in the process; ‘Feel Alive’ with Pep & Rash; ‘These Heights’ with fellow Top 100 DJ entrants Bassjackers; not to mention collaborations with Mike Williams, Firebeatz and Madison Mars. Oh, and the solo bomb ‘Up Till Dawn (On The Move)’ — a tried and tested summer anthem. Known for their love of future-leaning dance that has roots in electro-house and pop, high-profile shows have taken them everywhere from the main stage at Tomorrowland to Bangkok during 2017. If that’s not proof of some serious global demand, we’re not sure what is.
