In 2007, Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst formed W&W, a DJ and production duo, and have become one of the most sought-after acts in electronic music.
With their energetic music and festival sets, W&W has dominated dance floors worldwide and ranked in DJ Mag's Top 20 DJs for the past 9 years. They have performed at renowned festivals like Tomorrowland, Ultra, and EDC and broke the world record in China with 24 shows in 27 days.
W&W's sound combines uplifting melodies of Trance, the intensity of Electro, and the drive of Progressive House, creating a unique and rebellious style. From their early hits like ‘Rave After Rave’ and 'Bigfoot' to recent favorites 'God Is A Girl’, ‘Heaven Is A Place On Earth’, and ‘Rave Love’ their diverse productions appeal to multiple audiences. Under their alias NWYR, W&W continues to innovate and release trance-inspired productions.
They run Rave Culture, a community-driven record label, and host a biweekly radio show with over 300,000 listeners. In 2020, they pioneered an XR augmented reality livestream and expanded it into Rave Culture Live, showcasing their DJ skills and productions.
With over 60 shows annually and a massive social media following of over 10 million, W&W are true pioneers in the main stage electronic dance music scene. Their new phase brings fresh productions, explosive live sets, the growth of Rave Culture, and the impact of their NWYR alias. W&W is transcending boundaries in its own signature style and making a lasting impact.
