After a chance 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. The past seven years have seen this Dutch production and DJ duo transcend the boundaries of genre and traverse the globe with their music and performances. 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 uniquely their own. Infectious, rebellious and highly energetic, their list of productions is championed by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, David Guetta and more for its breadth, diversity and massive appeal to multiple audiences. From their earlier works like the deep ‚Impact’, to the acid-rubbed ‘AK-47’, synth-driven ‘Moscow’ and floor pounding ‘Shotgun’, to later projects like ‘Invasion’, voted as official anthem for the „A State Of Trance 550” world tour, ‘Lift Off’, the embodiment of their multidimensional sound, ‘D# Fat’, their highly acclaimed collaboration with Armin van Buuren, the massive ‘Jumper’ with Hardwell, Beatport #1 smash ‘The Code’ with Ummet Ozcan (which became the most played track of Miami Music Week 2013), their chart topping remix of Armin van Buuren’s ‘This Is What It Feels Like’ feat. Trevor Guthrie and the official AMF (Amsterdam Music Festival) anthem ‘Thunder’, it’s clear each of the tunes leaving the W&W studios is a sure-shot of dance floor thrill. As DJs, currently #14 in the DJ Mag Top 100, they are also dominating dance floors and festivals the world over. 2013 featured a hugely successful Miami Music Week, a participation in the ASOT600 world tour which ended at a sold out Madison Square Garden, and other festivals such as Tomorrowland/World, Electric Zoo, Ultra, Stereosonic and an Ibiza residency at Privilege to name a few. W&W even became first ever dance music act to perform at a Major League Baseball stadium when they took over Philadelphia Phillies Citizen’s Bank Ball Park for a two-hour set. And this year, their headlining status at the world’s most leading festival and clubs is about to get even bigger. If that wasn’t enough, W&W continues to prove their status as innovators and tastemakers in the scene by also curating releases for their Mainstage Music label, and their popular weekly Mainstage Podcast.



On 10 February 2017, the Ultra Music Festival announced the line-up of its 19th edition, including an unknown name playing the trance stage called “NWYR”. Fans questioned whether W&W would be playing as they had become a fixed part of the festival line-up. It was later revealed that NWYR was a side project of W&W, and that they would return to the festival with new trance music.On 13 March 2017, they released a remix of the track “Castle on the Hill” by Ed Sheeran, their first under the pseudonym. Their big-room work influenced their new productions.On 26 March 2017, they performed at the Ultra Music Festival. NWYR are behind a remix of British producer Gareth Emery‘s track with Standerwick and Hailene called “Saving Light”.The NWYR style makes the first drops experimental, and the second drop harder and more melodic. On 12 June 2017, they released the first single of their new project, “Voltage”.On 20 November 2017, NWYR released their successor to “Voltage” titled “Dragon”, which is a big-room infused trance track. They released the single “Ends of Time” as a free download on 16 March 2018, which was initially debuted during their 2017 A State of Trance radio sets.
