FUTURE SOUND ASIA PRESENTS W&W
After meeting up back in 2007 Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst came together to form W&W and they haven’t looked back since. 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 that is uniquely their own. Infectious, rebellious and highly energetic, their list of productions is championed by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta and more for its breadth, diversity and massive appeal to multiple audiences.
W&W started 2016 with ‘Arcade’ a new collaboration with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and a vocal solo single ‘How Many’. Next to those their special ‘Festival Mixes’ of Justin Bieber’s Sorry and Adele’s ‘Hello’ have also been doing major damage recently, with the former proving one of the highlights of their killer Ultra Music Festival set in Miami. With over 2,000,000 plays on YouTube, their set has become one of the Top 5 most watched of the entire event.
Justin Oh is Asia’s fastest rising EDM artist and has been gaining notoriety in the dance music industry. In the past year, he has performed at some of the biggest festivals and clubs around the world including Ultra Music Festival. Mixmag & Beatport ranked Justin at #2 for Big Room Future Picks 2016 for Asia in their Booking Barometer with good reason. The buzz is growing, Justin Oh is the next big thing coming from Asia.
19-year old Dutch DJ and producer Maurice West has already made huge moves in the dance music community, signing to W&W’s imprint Mainstage Music as their first artist as well as joining the Armada team within just a year after releasing his first track. Maurice’s work is getting him massive support from the dance music elite, such as Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix and Nicky Romero. Bigroom legends W&W have taken him under their wings and blow away huge festival crowds like Tomorrowland and Ultra with his tunes. By dropping bangers like Poseidon, Dojo and TEMPLE (with hardstyle legends D-Block & S-Te-Fan), Maurice is taking the download charts and radio airwaves by storm. With many more monstrous tracks and massive collaborations coming up, advancing as W&W’s apprentice, Maurice West can only emerge in to a big name in dance music.
Catch W&W, Justin Oh and Maurice West at KL Live on 5 May 2017. Chukiess & Whackboi and Hypeembeats complete the explosive lineup for what is certain to be a night to remember.
