From the DJ booth of Melbourne’s hottest dancefloors and festivals to the studio producing breathtaking originals and remixes, the sky is the limit for this talented Aussie duo.
Digital Dreamerz have recently seen heavy support from top DJs around the world including Armin van Buuren who played the Giuseppe Ottaviani remix of their new single ‘Perception’ on A State Of Trance.
We caught up with the duo to find out more about ‘Perception’:
“Perception started as any other track. I am very big on melodies so for me generally it all starts from there. In this case, we went for that uplifting, happy vibe. We wanted something with a bit more power and drive, so we decided on a heavier moving bass line to get that more club friendly feel.”
“Giuseppe Ottaviani featured our track on his “HOT or NOT feature” on GO ON AIR radio show, reaching an amazing 97% votes for HOT! Soon after, we received an email from Giuseppe saying he really liked the track and wanted to mix plus sign the track to GO ON AIR RECORDS (Black Hole Recordings), which was a dream come true!”
“Having the Track played by Armin van Buuren on ASOT was absolutely amazing and a huge platform for exposure for us. We have had so many beautiful messages from fans around the world expressing their love for the ‘Perception’ and even other labels asking about the track & our upcoming work which has been awesome and really makes all the hard work well worth it.”
