W&W: hard way to success
The Netherlands is a hub for dance music talent, generative some of the biggest names in the world scene. Even in a fertile market, few acts have distinguished themselves as much over the past few years as Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst, who together form W&W. Their anthems can be heard at mainstages across the globe and they have cooperated with fellow Dutch superstars such as Hardwell and Armin van Buuren. Although theyre at the top of the game now, it was a hard way to the success.
This October W&Wre back to their motherland at Amsterdam Music Festival 2016. To understand better who are W&W welcome to listen to their fresh radioshows on our site.
Ward and Willem both had already had solo projects, but once they made a Trance song together and then sent that to Armin and he played it! Then Tiësto plyed it s well, nd neither hd plyed our music before. t tht moment the two understnd their creer together ws strting to go somewhere.
Although the & sign in W&W caused some problems in the early days of search engines, getting their music out has not been a problem for Ward and Willem. However, once W&W started taking off and they began touring heavily, Ward and Willem faced other problems a problem thats tormented many DJs when thrust into a nonstop 24-hour cycle of touring, recording, and partying. The guys ran upon both physical and mental stress. In fact, for Willem, he developed problems with his heart rhythm and bruises on his lung from heavy non-stop touring and partying. Thankfully, the guys take much better care of themselves today.
When it comes to their fns, its the little things tht stnd out for Wrd nd Willem. Whether its little kid telling them he/she loves their music or fn who sks bout n ID t n exct moment during set, the fn love is overwhelming for W&W. This is not lost on the guys.
Ward: We get a lot of messages on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc. from people telling us how our music helped them through difficult times and thats always really amazing to hear.
