Over the past few years Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s reputation and hype has increased tenfold. Now it’s been recently revealed that over the weekend, the duo’s summer track 'Higher Place' became the most Shazam’ed track at Creamfields.
Scoring the #1 track follows on from the single’s recent position at Tomorrowland, where back in July 'Higher Place' closed the festival as the #1 Shazam’ed track on the Sunday, as well as gaining a prominent spot in the Top 10 of ‘Most Shazam’ed tracks of the Tomorrowland weekend’.
Ever since the duo stood in for David Guetta after his jet caught fire back in 2013, the brothers have gone to become firm favourites with the crowd of Creamfields. After closing the festival in 2014, anticipation around their 2015 main stage set was one met with great excitement – and the Belgian brothers and Smash The House label bosses delivered a set mixed with new music and fan-favourites.
With over three million plays on Spotify and two million views and counting on YouTube, as well as spending six weeks holding onto the #1 spot in the Belgian singles chart, the popularity of ‘Higher Place’ going from a club record into a global hit single is one that continues to grow. Representing a different musical direction, the single is also the first time Mike has sung on a release. Co-produced by both brothers, the track has Mike sharing the lyric writing with guest singer Ne-Yo.
