Firebeatz’s massive electro anthem “Dear New York” turns 5 years old
Holland based duo Firebeatz have more than cemented a reputable name for themselves and to date, their music captivates fans from all around the world. Having discovered both Tim Benjamin and Jurgio Ratello had similar interests in music the pair’s chemistry prompted the emergence of Firebeatz to the electronic music scene back in 2008. Becoming synonymous with the big room and progressive house sound, high-tempo and energetic tracks, the pair produced ‘Dear New York’ one of their most iconic tracks and the massive hit has just turned five years old.
Following a string of original productions from the pair, the massive electro anthem saw its release on Spinnin‘ Records back in 2012 when Tim and Jurgio teamed up with Schella to produce this epic masterpiece. The trio took a recognizable Beastie Boys sample before layering leading reverberating synths and pounding kick drums to construct an almighty collaboration. While progressive house reigned, ‘Dear New York’ undoubtedly became one of the most prominent main stage bangers that year and since then the thunderous anthem continues to dominate dance-floors when played.
The Dutch duo has since collaborated with some of the worlds biggest DJs pumping out more ferocious tracks such as ‘Helicopter’, ‘Last Train’ and ‘I Can’t Understand‘ with Chocolate Puma. Now heading into a decade of music the distinguished duo’s schedule continues to fill with worldwide bookings across the biggest stages.
