Dutch DJ duo Lucas de Wert and Steven Jansen are best mates and long-time studio wingmen. This last year was mostly about getting back on the road though. "We have renewed our focus and excitement for club shows," they say. "Tomorrowland Mainstage was an incredible crowd. It was so good to be back, and we hit a personal record by doing the most shows ever this year. We loved to see and meet our fans again in person!"
Over the last 12 years, this pair have added their own spin to all forms of house from future to progressive, often with their own lush keys, synths and pianos at the centre of the grooves. As such, and despite the busy-ness of their tour diary, the pair have managed to find plenty of studio time. "We are busy making many new club tracks for the upcoming months,” they say. “We are also working on some special collabs, and we will be touring around the world to play to and see all the fans.” Some of their upcoming projects include “mash-ups, production sessions, radio shows and wait-and-see secrets!”
