W&W INTRODUCE NEW RAVE CULTURE

A new rave movement is on the rise, and W&W are the ones responsible. Their new concept is meant to reshape the dance music experience for the most passionate ravers and marks the beginning of a new movement and label: ‘Rave Culture’.

Listen to W&W – Rave Culture

new music video has launched to magnify the impact of Rave Culture and its first release, which hints towards a possible collaboration with an electronic dance music legend in the foreseeable future.

As a label, Rave Culture builds on – and rebrands – the initial idea of Mainstage Music, but with a stronger focus on creative freedom. In addition to keeping an open mind toward many different sub genres of electronic dance music, the label will release music from artists such as W&W, NWYR and Maurice West, incorporating the Mainstage sound into the bigger picture.

W&W: “With our song ‘Rave Culture’, we wanted to answer the call of many fans about making a song that went back to the golden era of Bigroom, somewhere around 2012 and 2013. We took that sound and tried to create an updated version with today’s production standards.”

 

During this year’s edition of Amsterdam Dance Event, on October 19, Rave Culture is hosting a free launch party for fans at Club Nova. Fans can expect performances from W&W, Maurice West, D-Block & S-Te-Fan and a few other special guests. Make sure to join the movement by following @RaveCulture on Instagram.

W&W AND VINI VICI DROP ONE OF MOST-PLAYED RECORD OF TOMORROWLAND BELGIUM 2017: ‘CHAKRA’

When two of the hottest acts of today’s dance music scene link up, you know there’s a mainstage anthem heading your way. Fresh from thrilling the masses at the world’s most prestigious events, W&W and Vini Vici’s ‘Chakra’ finally sees its release on W&W’s Mainstage Music imprint.

LISTEN TO ‘CHAKRA’

‘Mustang’, W&W have been a main pillar in dance music. The Dutch duo, consisting of Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst, boasts a slew of unbridled club stompers, from breakthrough single ‘Bigfoot’ to the more recent ‘Arcade’ (with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike), ‘How Many’ and ‘Live The Night’ (with Hardwell and Lil Jon), each becoming reputable live set fixtures and festival highlights across the globe while racking up tens of millions of streams. The current #13 DJs in the world according to DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 DJs poll, W&W are always ready to sweep over music land with their ever-tempestuous productions and ‘Chakra’ is the next sonic storm from their hand.

 

The second part of the ‘Chakra’ equation, Vini Vici have got to be Trance music’s biggest sensations of recent years. Almost solely responsible for bringing Psy-Trance back to the biggest dance music festivals, they’ve graced mainstages across the globe and managed to become Beatport’s #1 Psy-Trance artists for two years in a row. Their link-up with Armin van Buuren and Hilight Tribe for ‘Great Spirit’ has already gotten fans drooling for months and ‘Chakra’ is sure to further that tradition.


W&W, HARDWELL, AND GRAMMY AWARD WINNER LIL JON LAUNCH NEW MAINSTAGE SMASH: ‘LIVE THE NIGHT’

W&W, Hardwell, and Lil Jon have finally put out their latest collaboration today. ‘Live The Night’ is the result of their full-blown team-up and is released on Mainstage Music, the record label of Dutch duo W&W.

 

‘Live The Night’ has been buzzing for two years now, ever since W&W and Hardwell played the track at Ultra 2014 for the first time. More recently, W&W played the track during EDC Las Vegas last month and yesterday, the track annihilated the main stage of Balaton Sound Festival in Hungary. In addition, Hardwell wreaked havoc with the track at The Flying Dutch and allowed for it to make a devastating impact at EDC Las Vegas as well.

Apart from being a main fixture in W&W and Hardwell’s live sets, ‘Live The Night’ soared in its makers’ own respective radio shows (Mainstage Podcast and Hardwell On Air).

 

After ‘Jumper’ and ‘Don’t Stop The Madness’, ‘Live The Night’ is the first team-up of the three Dutchmen to be released on W&W’s Mainstage Music.
