ItÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs been a cyclonic four years for the unavoidable, vivacious pairing of electronic musicÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs freshest high-hopes, Wolfpack, with things only set to snowball further into a whole other rave-fuelled realm, as 2015 progresses onÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦
With their Tomorrowland debut of 2011 igniting their unique spark of uplifting bridges and ruthless big-room drops, the brotherly duo of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike signed them up to their Smash The House roster, almost instantaneously.
With the quartet all collectively hailing from the town of Willebroek, Antwerp, the label bosses re-kindled their childhood friendship with local natives Wolfpack, through a love of positively-led, bold electronic music. FastÃÂÃÂ forwardÃÂÃÂ several yearsÃÂÃÂ andÃÂÃÂ theÃÂÃÂ pairÃÂÃÂ nowÃÂÃÂ findÃÂÃÂ themselvesÃÂÃÂ ridingÃÂÃÂ high on a wave of hype and success, as exclusiveÃÂÃÂ recordingÃÂÃÂ artistsÃÂÃÂ toÃÂÃÂ theÃÂÃÂ Smash The House imprintÃÂÃÂ andÃÂÃÂ mostÃÂÃÂ enviably, official protÃÂÃÂ©gÃÂÃÂ©es ofÃÂÃÂ theÃÂÃÂ world-renownedÃÂÃÂ brothers. But amidst this family-like affair, Wolfpack- also known as Steve and Ruben to their nearest and dearest – have watched their production work surge across the globe, catching the attention of fans, critics and peers alike.
By uniting their music, fans and ultimately themselves as artists, together as one single entity, Wolfpack believe that their name reflects this group of friends that continues to grow every day, by believing in helping each other and living life and not conforming to crowds – but leading rather than following the herd – Wolfpack demonstrate the ultimate unstoppable qualities that their music can manifest itself into. Their rise in 2014 was so astronomical, Wolfpack debuted in DJ MagÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Top 100 DJs poll at a well-received #84 position, a win they described as ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂunrealÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ, though certainly not eluding the worthy expectations from industry insiders and ravers alike.
FromÃÂÃÂ colossalÃÂÃÂ TomorrowlandÃÂÃÂ performancesÃÂÃÂ including a deserved set on theÃÂÃÂ MainÃÂÃÂ Stage in 2012 and headlining the Smash The House stage in 2013,ÃÂÃÂ they also blew minds internationally opening up for their mentors on Smash The House dates across India, South America, Europe, USA,ÃÂÃÂ theÃÂÃÂ MiddleÃÂÃÂ EastÃÂÃÂ andÃÂÃÂ beyond. The pair also enjoyed a starring appearance at the inaugural American version of TomorrowWorld show in Atlanta back in 2013 and returned to blast away the Tomorrowland mainstage once more in 2014 ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ it seems there really is no limit to the capabilities of this twosomeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦
WolfpackÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂsÃÂÃÂ reputationÃÂÃÂ forÃÂÃÂ providingÃÂÃÂ electricÃÂÃÂ setsÃÂÃÂ growsÃÂÃÂ with every whirlwind journey across countries and continents, each release also harvesting their deep-rooted passion for a collaborative essence, weather this be their undeniable chemistry between each other as a unit, or the internationally invited guest-stars they mould with, blurring genres and ushering in new ears each time.
Collaborating with UK starlet Katy B for a vocal edit of the official TomorrowWorld anthem, ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂFind Tomorrow (Ocarina)ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ, along with the GTA co-produced ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂTurn It UpÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ and hot-off-the-press Bobby Puma collaboration ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂJumpÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ, their high-octane releases are gaining them just as much praise as their intense on-stage antics.
2014 alone saw them invade the stages of internationally-respected clubbing houses from South Africa to Singapore at venues including Ministry Of Sound, Las VegasÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Light and hold down a weekly residency at Amnesia in Ibiza before jetting on a party flight from Oslo, to take on Tomorrowland once more. Then, there was their party-slaying sets at both ManchesterÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs legendary Victoria Warehouse venue and BelgiumÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Sportpaleis Antwerpen, as part of Dimitri Vegas & Like MikeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂSmash The UKÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ and ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂBringing The World The MadnessÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ tours, proving these boys can hold their own, even on the WorldÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs most rousing stages.ÃÂÃÂ
Thanks to a combination of hotly anticipated productions 2015 looks set to be a standout year for the Wolfpack duo. With label link-ups for imprints such as Steve AokiÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs Dim Mak and their musical home, Smash The House; Wolfpack are well on course to confirming their howling presence as frontrunners in the electronic scene for years to comeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦
