DVBBS be good to us: it’s been another successful year for the long-haired Canadian pop merchant brothers Chris and Alex van den Hoef. Switching their usual massive mainstream crowds for studio marathons this year, a steady flow of DVBBS freshness has tickled our ears all lockdown. Kicking off the pandemic with the feel-good funky house jam ‘Wrong About You’, they’ve been relentless in their disco dispatches from the pounding euphoria of their Moti collab ‘This Is Dirty’ to the heartfelt ‘Tinted Eyes’ with rappers Blackbear and 24kGoldn (the lads donated all proceeds from the track to the Black Lives Matter movement) to ‘No Time’ with the mighty Wiz Khalifa and fellow popsters Cheat Codes.
As if that wasn’t quite enough heat, they wrapped up the summer with their long-awaited sophomore album ‘Nothing To See Here’. Representing all sides of their sugar-sweet EDM sound, with collaborations with the likes of Bridge and Safe, it hit the spot perfectly – bridging the gap between their usual mainstage energy and the more mature, song-written approach they’ve been experimenting with this year.
