DJ style: “Hardstyle.”
Best known for: “Craziest guys in the hardstyle scene!”
Fave tune of 2018: “Da Tweekaz ‘Jägermeister’.”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “Forever Lost.”
You know when you’ve been travelling the world for 10 years and making a living from making and DJing your own brand of big-room beats that you’ve made it. Not that Norwegian duo Da Tweekaz, purveyors of seismic beats and blitzkrieg basslines, have rested on their laurels.
They celebrated their decade in dance music the way they know best — with nearly 130 shows across the globe, playing clubs, after-parties and festival main stages. And, keen brand builders as well, they added to their impressive array of merchandise, with new hoodies, caps, long-line t-shirts, bracelets, swim shorts and tequila and vodka shot glasses.
An ever-present in the Top 100 poll since debuting in 2012, the duo have managed to maintain their on-stage energy (think fist-bumping hardstyle workouts) and even found time to release dynamic floor-fillers like their tongue-in-cheek anthem ‘Jägermeister’ and its deliriously silly video. “We’ve also launched our very own happy hard label called Electric Fox together with Darren Styles,” they say.
