“W&W are truly the rising stars of trance. If I have to put my money on somebody, I put it on W&W.” Quote: 'Armin van Buuren, ASOT 450, 2010'

What started as a chance meeting at the 2007 Trance Energy has, in just under 3 years solidified into one of the freshest, most exciting electronic dance acts on the scene. With it has come a new multifarious trance sound that, globally, has begun to shatter underground clubs, arenas and festivals. Banding together under the name W&W has seen the collective careers of Ward van der Harst & Willem van Hanegem go into overdrive... As spinners they’ve delivered due damage to club nights and festivals and in 2010 their A-list-hammered track portfolio saw them conclusively tip the ‘next big thing’ scales. Now, in the new decade, W&W are ready to rule.    

W&W Productions: The serendipitous Trance Energy meet quickly bore their debut W&W production, which came in the form of the mighty ‘Mustang’. ‘Arena’ (which featured on the Armin Only DVD) followed up its freshman success and fast found the CDJs of trance luminaries like Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Sander van Doorn & Judge Jules. Tipped by Armin van Buuren as “the best up-and-coming production duo out there”, W&W have continued to rock federation trance to its core with ‘Mainstage’, the Sean Tyas-remixed ‘D.N.A’, ‘Alpha’, and their Ummet Ozcan collaboration ‘Synergy’ each bringing floors to critical mass. Remix-side, their voracious rewires have proved equally as popular - most notably on Armin’s ‘Rain’, ‘Remedy’ (by UK pop starlet Little Boots) and those of Svenson & Gielen, Aly & Fila, Leon Bolier, Sied van Riel, & others.    

DJs: Almost a year to the day since Willem & Ward first shook hands they were on hand to witness Sander van Doorn spinning the furiously phat beats and compressed melodies of ‘Mustang’ at Trance Energy. Galvanised by its floor-response (and defining their sounds as “big room trance with a techy edge”), they, themselves quickly took up the spinning mantle. That route has taken them to some of the most respected nights out there. Ones that have come to include Poland’s Sunrise Festival, Trance Energy, ID&T Tomorrowland, both the A State Of Trance 400 and 450 gigs, the famous Amnesia in Ibiza, and a spot playing alongside Tiësto at his massive stadium gig in Kiev.
The Mainstage Radio Show:  Now a regular standing fixture in the trance enthusiasts listening schedule, W&W’s Mainstage radio show exports their diverse sound around the world every week. Mainstage is all about showcasing the freshest music and exposing new talent to the world. Broadcasting on A State Of Sundays at Sirius XM, America’s biggest satellite radio.

Through the W&W website you'll be able to pick your favorite track of the fortnight and vote on it. The winner will be duly crowned 'Most Wanted' on the following show. Mainstage goes on A State Of Sundays at Sirius XM, every week, between 22:00 and 23:00 hours EDT and every second and fourth Monday 18:00 CET on Afterhours FM.
