Questions Top100 DJs 2004 - Becca Antoon - 2018-10-11 16:54

From: Italy
DJ style: “EDM bounce/hard bounce.”
Best known for: “Our songs ‘Bounce Generation’, ‘How We Party’, and ‘Raveology’.”
Fave tune of 2018: “We don’t really have one, but if we could pick an album it would be ‘Gravity’ by Bullet For My Valentine. Absolutely loving it!”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “SayMyName.”

Spinnin’ Records stalwarts Alessandro and Andrea VInai have been bubbling under for some time, but it’s really only in the last year or two that they’ve really reached the top tier of EDM and “hard bounce” DJs. Now able to command huge audiences — both at colossal clubs such as Los Angeles’ EDM hot-spot Avalon, and at music festivals in the Far East — the Italian siblings are still coming to terms with their newfound status as a headline attraction.

“Being part of a festival is easy, but headlining it is definitely something else,” they explained to DJ Mag. “You’ve got all the pressure, and you have to make sure all the people that are waiting for you get a memorable experience.”

The pair have continued to rack up dancefloor hits, too, joining forces with LMFAO’s Redfoo on the sizable ‘Everything I Need’. They also got to work with Hardwell. “He’s one of our all-time heroes,” they explain. “It’s something we always dreamed about when we started this journey.”
