Sunday School #34: W&W

By: Forward Musiq

In the triumphant return of “Sunday School” we give you Trance’s most hyped up duo, W&W.

W&W is a Dutch EDM duo consisted of Willem van Hanegem and Wardt van der Harst. This dynamic duo specialize in playing and producing Progressive House and Trance big room anthems. W&W started their musical careers as a group in 2007 and already they are considered one of the top names in Trance and big room house all over the globe.

Ward and Willen both met at Electro Energy 2007 when they where discovering their love for electronic music, specially of the huge room filling type. So that same summer they decided to head to the studio together to start creating music. This led to their first original production “Mustang” which hit the Trance world by storm. With Sander van Dorn playing this track at Electro Energy the following year and high praise from Armin van Buuren, W&W hit the Trance scene by storm with one career starting track.

W&W are extremely hard workers and in the few years they have been together they have been putting out impressive house/trance track after another and killing it on the remix scene. This Dutch duo have remixed tracks from the likes of Zedd’s “Clarity”, Dash Berlin’s “Waiting”, Armin van Buuren’s “This Is What It Feels Like”, Cosmic Gate’s “Over The Rainbow” and many more awesome House and Trance room fillers.

What set’s W&W apart in the Progressive House and Trance scene is their willingness to push the boundaries of what these EDM genres are supposed to sound like. They are constantly experimenting with their sound so they can find a good balance between having a signature W&W stable to every one of their tracks and also having every track sound unique. They approach every new track as a challenge to themselves and their musical prowess. This leaves an impressive catalog of original production, all of which are fan favorites. Some of the notable mentions are “Arena”, “Dome”, “Mainstage”, “Impact”, “AK47”, “Search For Tomorrow”, “Moscow” and many many more. W&W have also collaborated with some of the biggest names in Progressive House and Trance like Ummet Ozcan, Marcel Woods, Mark Sixma and Armin van Buuren.
