After meeting one another at Trance Energy 2007, once-solo producers Wardt van der Harst and Willem Van Hanegem teamed up to create the Dutch electronic music duo W&W. Their first track, “Mustang”, resulted in their instant success after it was embraced by leading DJs such as Armin van Buuren, Tiestö , Sander van Doorn, Ferry Corsten, and Markus Schulz. Van Buuren praised W&W as “the best up-and-coming production duo out there”, and their subsequent remixes met an equally positive response.
After hearing Sander Van Doorn play “Mustang” at Trance Energy 2008 and witnessing the enthusiastic response from dancers, the duo decided to expand from producing to DJing. They went on to perform alongside Tiestö and other forerunning DJs at major festivals around the world. Their Mainstage radio show is now broadcast twice monthly on Afterhours.FM, one of the world’s leading trance stations.
Fusing styles and mixing influences W&W combine the uplifting and melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressiveness of house to create a sound uniquely their own.
