Holland based Dutch DJ duo Firebeatz stormed onto the Dutch music scene in early 2008 and has since swiftly merited a reputable and solid name for themselves. Made up off Tim and Jurre discovered their musical chemistry when they met at the School of Arts in Tilburg, the Netherlands, before deciding to team up.
The summer of 2008 saw the release of their first productions including the track “Speak Up” followed by “We’re Going Back” shortly after. Both tracks received a lot of airplay on various Dutch radio stations. With their distinctly unique sound which boasts infectious bass hooks, insanely catchy vocals, compulsive beats, groove and drive, this house-duo quickly caught the ears of well-known DJs including Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez and Funkerman. The duo were quickly booked for festival gigs in the summer 2009. Some of the festivals they’ve played at include Rockit Festival, Free Your Mind Festival and Zomerkriebels Festival.
The boys were picked up by Dutch label Flamingo Recordings in 2010 and signed tracks of the boys on Flamingo and sister label Blackbird. Shortly after, Firebeatz collaborated with JoeySuki and the track “Hidden Sound” was born. The track received massive support from names like Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Dirty South, Laidback Luke, Chocolate Puma and Chris Lake, which resulted in a climax when “Hidden Sound” hit #7 at Beatport.
The young duo then kicked off 2011 with a release on Sneakerz Muzik: “It’s Like that 2011” which was instantly picked up by Steve Angello before the the club bomber exploded in every chart and club around the world. “It’s Like That 2011” reached #1 in four different countries. Having worked with industry giants, the duo are no stranger in the world of dance music.
