Canadian-born, LA-based duo DVBBS (pronounced ‘dubs’) have taken the EDM scene by storm with their action-packed big room sound over the last few years.
With their debut release picked up by the mighty Universal in 2012, these two brothers (aka Alex and Christopher van den Hoef) soon established a relationship with the world’s biggest dance label, Spinnin’ Records, which continues to this day. With hit single after hit single topping world charts, achieving platinum sales certification in over 10 countries and clocking up over a billion plays online, they have been absolutely dominant over the last few years.
Their productions pride themselves on the most epic sounds, the most rampant, colorful riffs and over the top builds and drops, while they’ve shown their prowess in working with vocals.
The pop sensibilities of Angel and a glorious acoustic version of Gold Skies (plus a background making rock music) have pointed a finger towards a more eclectic future – one they have hinted at for their debut album (coming soon) and their new record label KANARY. "KANARY isn't just going to be one of those EDM imprints” Alex said around its launch. “We're going to promote great music and want to be vastly different to the big labels that are out there currently.”
Meanwhile their DJ career has grown relentlessly in tandem, with the duo climbing to #16 on the DJ Mag Top 100 in 2015 following show-stopping performances everywhere from Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld to EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival and Hakkasan Las Vegas. 2015 also saw them stage their own Mount Woozy festival in their hometown Toronto – which sold out before the line-up was even announced. They plan on bringing ‘Mount Woozy’ all over the world so watch out for it. Their ‘Never Stop The F*cking Rave’ world tour also enjoyed similar success.
With over 200 shows across the world a year and their high-energy presence behind (and on top of!) the decks, they are working tirelessly to delight their huge global fanbase.
