Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s path from celebrated DJs to dominating the electronic music scene has been a constant, upward trajectory. From becoming the first ever duo to win the World #1 DJ’s crown at the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll in 2015, the twosome continued to stand strong and remain relevant amongst the ever-changing landscape of modern dance music, as for 2016 they remain in the Top 2 for the 3rd year in a row.
Whether wreaking havoc across Europe, Asia, Australia, North or South America, ripping up the music charts with immense studio releases, cutting huge remixes for the A-list elite or playing their part in the incredible rise of the Belgian mega-festival Tomorrowland, the award-winning brotherly duo have now become the leading lights in the new wave of not only international dance music currently taking the planet by storm.
Their electrifying live combination of DJ sets and crowd-busting MCing has propelled them towards party notoriety, scooping the hotly contested ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ award at the 2013 International Dance Music Awards (IMDAs) and back-to-back ‘Best European DJ’s’ awards in 2014 & 2015, the pair also later won ‘Best European DJ’ & ‘Best Artist Group’ in the 2016 edition of the IDMA’s. The brothers won ‘Best Global DJ’ at the 2015 edition of the EMPO TV awards in Mexico and repeated the triumph again in 2016, as well as winning ‘Best Big Room’ and ‘Best Music Video’ for their unmissable music video The Hum. They’ve also since been two-time winners of the MTV EMA for ‘Best Belgian Act’ as now-classics including ‘The Hum’, ‘Mammoth’, ‘Tremor’, ‘Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat’ and the recent Billboard-premiered Summer anthem ‘Stay A While’, ensures that the boys continue to sound as originally exciting as the day these seminal tracks were first unleashed.
Never ones to slow down, their consistently excellent placing within the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll has only seen the duo propelled to even greater heights. Their relentless drive to continually provide their solid and loyal fanbase with even greater and more exciting shows, music, and madness, is likely to see Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ascend even beyond the top tier of the electronic music scene. Their appeal and genuine love for what they do has been behind the impressive accolades the brothers have received so far, and they’re only just getting started.
