Interview || Turn It Up With Wolfpack

Exclusive Interview With DJ Duo Wolfpack Ahead Of Their South Africa Tour This November  

Exclusive artists to Smash The House, the Wolfpack hype continues to spread like wildfire around the world. Mainstage sets at Tomorrowland 2012, tours of India, South America, Europe and beyond, and huge hits that include 'Miracle' and the 2013 Beatport #1 smash 'Turn It Up' - co-produced with mentors Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and GTA - have opened the duo up to a huge global audience that crosses not just borders but continents and land masses. With their Tomorrowland Aftermovie Smash Hit 'Ocarina' on the way... 2013 was massive for them and 2014 is shaping up to be their biggest year yet, it seems that the rise of the Wolfpack has only just begun…


Hello Steve and Ruben, thank you so much for doing this interview with us, its such a pleasure 

1. How are you doing and what song best describes each of you?
Hey doing fine, thnx! Mmm maybe Ain’t no party without me lol

2. Together you from Wolfpack how did you two meet and what lead to the forming of Wolfpack?
We met at a very young age, when we were still going to school. Our passion has always been music and that’s how we ended up working together as Wolfpack.

3. What have been some of the challenges you guys faced when starting out?
First of all getting your name out there of course. We did a lot of promo shows when we started. In the beginning we also had to get used to the long travel/no sleep play repeat lifestyle.

4. Ocarina with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike was the TomorrowWorld anthem and it was a beatport number 1. Did you expect such success from the track? 
Ocarina actually came from a Wednesday afternoon of studio/BBQ session with the boys, we immediately felt it had an amazing vibe but of course we could have never expected it to be so successful.

5. Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and GTA have mentored you, how has this helped your career and what have been some of the lessons you learnt from them? 
Turn it up is still one of our favorite tracks. Working together with them was really cool, it actually was the first time we reached number 1 on the general Beatport top 100 chart. So that gave us a real boost of course.

6. Describe your sound using 3 words.
Firealarm, Electro and Sex

7. What does this button do is your latest track featured on Smasher EP 1, we feel there’s more to the track title, what inspired the track and the title?
We just bought the new Virus TI, and i think the rest speaks for itself :)

8. Which producers do you look up to and who do you think is the best producer out there at present?                                                      
We’ve spend a lot of time with Dimitri and Mike in the studio, and we’re still learning from them everyday :)

9. Do you remember the first gig you played at, what was the experience like, did you love it or hate it? 
Our very first gig was when we where 15 years old, hahahaha , our first mentionable gig was Tomorrowland 2011 and was one of the best days of our lives
