Exploding into popular consciousness five years ago with a Dance Music pedigree and well-earned reputation for head-banging live performances, the Canadian electronic duo DVBBS (pronounced “Dubs”) has rapidly evolved into one of dance music’s most innovative, globe-trotting, chart-topping acts. Comprised of Ontario-born brothers Alexandre and Christopher van den Hoef, the group first gained acclaim with its major label debut, releasing the EP INITIO through Universal Music in 2012. A year later, DVBBS broke into EDM‘s major league with the smash single “Tsunami.” And since then, they’ve dropped a string of hits—including “La La Land,” “Gold Skies” and the No. 1 breakthrough “Angel“—relentlessly expanding their cultural footprint through platinum sales certifications in nearly a dozen countries, more than a billion online song plays and coming to rank No. 16 on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 poll. As showcased on their six-song December EP Beautiful Disaster, Chris and Alex structure their new music around sunny melodies, catchy vocal tracks and even feel-good guitars, connecting the dots between trap beats, future house and electro, as well as the four-on-the-floor sound and blistering party bangers for which DVBBS is best known.

Marcus Santoro And Tim van Werd Collide On 2 Strong Mixes Of “One Inside”
The newest single from Protocol Recordings is “One Inside,“ a dual release by an international collision of three talented artists. Aussie Marcus Santoro and Dutch producer Tim van Werd, who combined forces to create two different versions of the track, which features outstanding vocals by British singer Mila Falls. In Santoro’s “Main Room Mix,” he uses progressive melodies and a groovy bassline to compliment the vocals, making for a mainstage-ready version that would feel at home at any festival. On the other hand, Tim’s “After Hours Mix” delivers a proper vibe for those late nights-turned-early mornings, creating a rolling, deep progressive style. Van Werd’s signature sound could be heard recently on “Time To Save,” which was released in collaboration with Nicky Romero’s underground side-project Monocule. Listeners may recognize Mila Falls from FIFA World Cup 2018, and her recent release on Protocol “Explain To Me” together with Souvenyr & DØBER, aired on BBC Radio 1 and widely supported by the likes of Martin Garrix, Sam Feldt, and Nicky Romero. No matter which version you’re in the mood for, “One Inside” is a sultry progressive ride.
Marcus Santoro joined Protocol Recordings in 2019 with his remix of Nicky Romero’s “My Way,” followed by the first single release “Shine,” in collaboration with Sentinel. His career got a massive kickstart when his single “There Is Only You” topped the Beatport trance charts and received a phenomenal three plays in a row from Above & Beyond on their Group Therapy radio show – landing Marcus a guest appearance on the show a few weeks later. Afterward, his remix for Shapov & Trouze’s “The Way” on Axtone gained traction from artists and fans alike, leading to more releases on Enhanced, Armada, and Flashover. Since then on Protocol, Santoro has released “Out of My Head” together with Faderx, “Faces” and “Blackout” ft. Lauren L’aimant.
Already on his fourth release with Protocol, Tim van Werd has quickly made a name for himself with his dark progressive sound. He began playing the drums, trumpet, and piano at a very young age, and his producing prowess is evident in his present music. Featured for the first time on Protocol’s Miami 2017 compilation with his track “Belong” ft. Max Landry then went on to release his hit “Balkan Disco” as well as singles “Inside Out,” “Break The Night,” and “Message From The Whales.” His music has been supported by the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Sam Feldt, and many more. Van Werd has progressed to his most recent collaboration with Nicky Romero himself as Monocule, which is the premier track on Monocule’s debut EP.

Arkadiusz Van Born Brings Us A Dancefloor-Ready Sound On “My Radio”

The magic of “My Radio” by Arkadiusz Van Born lies within its dancefloor-ready sound. Hailing from America, this young DJ/producer grew up in Europe and had his first contact with everything relating to electronic music. During childhood, a Casio keyboard aroused his curiosity about rhythms and tones. Soon after, he developed a good musical ear that allowed him to recreate Trance and Techno beats. These genres were introduced to him thanks to his elder sister who used to have an active nightlife during the 90s.
It is not a cliché to say, his purpose as an artist is to unify people through his upbeat melodies. But not only that, he also wants to inspire you to follow your dreams in this creative industry. In his case, he went far as a self-taught musician. During the period of 2009-2010, local music charts placed him as the #1 DJ from Chicago with his first hit. Today he wants to repeat the same success story with “My Radio”. Use your headphones, turn up the volume, and enjoy this cutting edge gem. Besides production Arkadiusz excels in equal fashion within the composition, mastering, editing, and mixing fields.
