Watch This! DVBBS Gives Exclusive 30 Min Video Interview
Skies continue to be gold for DVBBS brothers, Christopher and Alex van den Hoef.
The Ontario, Canada born siblings made waves with the release of their Borgeous collab, “Tsunami” back in 2013, a track that would become not only an international hit, but a staple of the big room musical category. Since DVBBS’s foundation, the van den Hoef brothers have elevated to become masters of big room and electro house, and therefore figures extremely well versed on how to inspire a festival crowd to spend less time with their feet planted firmly on the ground, and more time with their hands and feet in the air in a carefree, synchronized jump to the beat. DVBBS’s unharnessed energy has inspired the group to play over 200 shows each year, with festival appearances ranging from Miami’s famed Ultra Music Festival, to Belgium’s Tomorrowland.
Clearly well established within the genre of electronic dance music, DVBBS’s steady production of dance music hits have not surprisingly amassed a considerable fan base; a search of “DVBBS” on Facebook alone yields 5,366,036 likes, with total YouTube channel followers and video views aside.
DVBBS’s popularity can only be expected to increase exponentially with the duo’s release of their exclusive six-track EP, “Beautiful Disaster,” a work that serves as the precursor to the brothers’ anticipated twelve-track EP, a significantly larger project that features NERVO and Cody Simpson among other talent.
Released December 2, 2016, “Beautiful Disaster” is indicative of the van den Hoef brothers’ progression as DJs/producers. Deviating from highly charged festival “bangers” at high beat per minute counts, DVBSS slows down on “Beautiful Disaster” in order to allow a more focused glimpse of the duo’s range of musical ability. The Gia Koka and CMC$ collab, “Not Going Home,” incorporates more of a house vibe, whereas the Juicy J feature, “Moonrock” looks to hip hop as an influencing element within DVBBS’s current production process.
Given the somewhat unexpected qualities of the songs that combine to form “Beautiful Disaster,” DVBBS’s fans may wonder what form the upcoming twelve-track EP will assume. While DVBBS—ever tightlipped about new releases prior to their official release—may currently leave much to listeners’ imaginations, the pair do discuss details concerning the pending EP in an exclusive interview given on Friday, January 13th at AOL’s Build HQ builing in New York City. The interview, an intimate thirty-minute affair, precluded the group’s appearance in Atlantic City at Haven later that evening.
The van den Hoef brothers speak candidly in the AOL interview, discussing “Beautiful Disaster,” the lanch of their own Toronto based festival, finding their start, and their reasoning for keeping their iconic hairdo’s. A treat for any DVBBS enthusiast seeking more personal knowledge of the group, the interview is linked below.
