On October 25, W&W aka Ward van der Harst and Willem van Hanegem took over the decks of BBC Radio 1′s infamous Essential Mix for what was sure an explosive edition of the world’s favorite mix show.

This Dutch DJ/production duo, sitting pretty at #14 on the DJ Mag Top 100, is known for transcending the boundaries of genre by combining the uplifting and melodic elements of trance with the raw intensity of electro and progressive characteristics of house to create a sound uniquely their own. This Essential Mix will be no exception, and you can expect an infectious, rebellious, and highly energetic mix to be delivered in full force.

W&W recently released a massive collaboration with Hardwell in August on Revealed Recordings in the form of the epic “Jumper.” Their single “Thunder,” which was released in May, entered the DMC Buzzchart at #1 and has quickly become one of the most talked about tracks in dance music.

Additionally, the Mainstage Music label heads’ smash single “The Code” is 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. It was also considered by many to be the track of WMC/MMW. 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 on the world’s biggest stages.
