In a dutch extravaganza, superstar duo W&W and their protégé Maurice West have joined forces in a new track called “Matrix”.
One of the most prominent duos in dance music today, W&W are truly industry giants. Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst have been ripping the scene apart since what seems like an eternity. Since their humble beginnings back in 2007, the duo has been through pretty much every major genre: from starting out in trance, to dabbing around in hardstyle, to their commercial breakthrough in the big room world with “Bigfoot”, where they have remained since. Their innovative production techniques and persistence have allowed them to reach the highest reaches of the dance music world, in a time when everyone says “big room is dead.”
They even manage to support artists rising new artists like TWIIG, SaberZ, David Gravell and, more important to this article, Maurice West. His career record is no slouch either: he boasts releases on Dharma, Rave Culture and Revealed Recordings, as well as support from Blasterjaxx, Hardwell and Nicky Romero. Maurice is truly a rising talent and a shining hope to keep big room alive, with a steady fan base and a certain recognition.
Their newest track though, “Matrix”, follows the current trend: psy trance. It starts out with synths reminiscent of Armin Van Buuren’s “Last Dancer”, coupled with a very festival-like melody. The build up follows the epic drop, filled with the usual bouncy kicks, rumbling bass and grabbing the melody from before and turning it into a very robotic, almost Daft Punk-like type of sound. Halfway through, the drop glitches out and transitions into the breakdown, which features stabby synths, a deep voice and dark vibes all round. Overall, a very well made track, certain to rock mainstages and crowds around the world.
