Now a regular fixture in the Top 100, DVBBS have had a busy year in 2018. They’ve put out three singles, including ‘I Love It’ with Cheat Codes and ‘Listen Closely’ featuring Safe. They’re both accessible tracks with pop choruses and big room house beats and have clocked up millions of plays between them all over the internet.
The multi-platinum pair also served up ‘IDWK’ with Blackbear, which recently got official gold certification in their native Canada. They first teased it at Coachella earlier in the year and it has since shot up the charts and picked up 10 million plays. “Blackbear has always been an artist we’ve wanted to work with and to walk away with a record like ‘IDWK’ is something we are so proud of,” DVBBS said at the time of release. “We both stepped outside of our comfort zone on this record... and I think that’s why it came out so special.”
They’ve also played shows in Vegas Red Rocks, The Olympiastadion in Berlin, and judging by their social media accounts, enjoy driving around in their Ferrari and tweeting mantras like ‘Do right things even when no one is watching’.
