W&W aka Ward van der Harst and Willem van Hanegem will be taking to the decks of BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix tonight for what could be another top mix on the show. The Dutch DJ/production duo, currently at #14 on the DJ Mag Top 100, combine the uplifting and melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressive characteristics of house for their sets and productions.
W&W recently released a collaboration with Hardwell in August on Revealed Recordings in the form of the ‘Jumper’. Their single, ‘Thunder’, was released in May and entered the DMC Buzzchart at #1. Additionally, the Mainstage Music label heads' single ‘The Code’ is potentially one 2013’s most popular having entered the DMC Buzz Chart at #1 and spending over two weeks at #1 on the Beatport Main Chart. W&W followed it up with ‘D#Fat’ (with Armin van Buuren) and a remix of Armin’s ‘This Is What It Feels Like’, both of which received significant plays around the world.
