“I have to ‘pinch myself’. Winning the award in 2015 was really cool, but now it means so much more because we’ve been working so hard in recent years and we’ve grown as artists, as a family and as a team, but above all, as a ‘music scene’ that has undergone such tremendous exponential growth, in general.”

“That so many people worldwide have helped us, every step of the way, and have re-elected us as their #1 DJs is such a fantastic compliment. So, a big thanks to our fans, from Willebroek and Boom to South America, India and the rest of the world.”
