As native Belgians, internationally-renown DJs and producers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have become de facto poster boys for the country’s annual Tomorrowland dance music festival. Previous years have seen the headlining brothers compose themes for the event and perform special, over-the-top sets. But this year, they take their love of Tomorrowland to the next level.
Starting Friday (July 20), Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will release seven tracks across 10 days, culminating in a seven-track EP simply titled, Tomorrowland EP. Each tune will be bigger and more bombastic than the last as the duo tries to capture the majesty and merriment of two-weekend event.
It’s a collaborative EP featuring some of the brothers’ and Tomorrowlands favorite friends. it kicks off with a huge hitter with Hardwell called “Unity.” Synths take the lead on the festival-sized boom that plays on hardstyle beats with a bouncy counter rhythm that is everything you’d expect from the Dutch master and the Belgian bros. It’s followed by “Here We Go (Hey Boy, Hey Girl)” with Nicky Romero, another massive tune that samples The Chemical Brothers‘ classic “Hey Boy, Hey Girl.” This one is a little wavier with wonky synths and big drums.
Tomorrowland comes to life in Boom, Belgium, for two weekends, Thursday to Sunday (July 19-22) and Thursday to Sunday (July 26-29). More tracks from the Tomorrowland EP are scheduled to drop July 22, 26, 27, 28 and 29. Check back here each day to hear the new songs as they are released, and be sure to catch the magic of Tomorrowland live via the official livestream.
