Hot off the back of releasing their double-CD mix compilation 'Mainstage 2012', W & W are gearing up for a busy December.

"The compilation had a lot of exclusive tunes on it, which were the result of endless searching," says Willem van Hanegem, one half of the Dutch duo (alongside Wardt van der Harst). Their 'Invasion' techy-trance smasher was one of this year's sure-fire trance anthems. "For us, the key to production is to experiment but not to lose the core feeling of our sound," they say. "We feel comfortable with the sound we have now."

Their progressive, big room trance sound is epitomized by releases such as 'Invasion' and 'Lift Off'. "We've been DJing pretty much everywhere, too," they say. "Whether you do that with old school vinyl mixing, using a USB stick or a laptop, it doesn't matter. It's all about the result that comes out of the speakers."
