In recent times the industry heavyweights brothers have proved a musical force to be reckoned with. Following netting the #1 spot in their native Belgium going platinum with ‘The Hum’, their magic touch was repeated as their Ne-Yo collaboration ‘Higher Place’ spent 10 weeks atop of the Belgian singles chart. Securing the #1 Billboard Dance Chart spot furthermore, this placing reoccurred with the release of their Diplo collaboration ‘Hey Baby’. Disney Records invited the brothers to rework the iconic theme song for the fifth installment of their blockbuster movie series ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. Working with Hans Zimmer on the film’s lead score ‘He’s a Pirate’, the brothers added a big room flavor to the latest edition, ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’. Summer 2017 also saw Dimitri, Mike, David Guetta and Kiiara team up for summer anthem ‘Complicated’, which date has amassed over 65 million streams on Spotify and 45 million YouTube views. ‘Complicated’ is currently #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart – earning the brothers their 3rd consecutive Billboard Dance Chart #1 chart position!
