BTS & Steve Aoki – Waste It On Me (W&W Remix)

When Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst used to share ideas over the internet for track productions back over 10 years ago, very few could have seen the rise that the pair would undergo. From producing trance in the early days, and moving onto big room house, electro house, hard house, and back around to trance, the Dutch duo have shot through the ranks. Entertaining the crowd of Tomorrowland, Ultra, Creamfields and other festival heavyweights around the world, the mighty W&W have made their name by giving the fans exactly what they want. Willem and Ward are back with a brand new festival banger, this time remixing the huge BTS collaboration with Steve Aoki: ‘Waste It On Me‘.

Collaborating with K-Pop chart toppers BTS, Steve Aoki showed yet again that he can make a hit with just about anyone he works with. Hitting over 65 million streams via Spotify, the original version of ‘Waste It On Me‘ has gathered plenty of attention. W&W have injected that extra bit of energy into the track, ramping the tempo straight up and giving it a bit more punch. Keeping the original vocals intact, W&W have worked their magic on the instrumental. Festival leads are at the forefront of this track, with the progressive melody bringing nothing but summer vibes. When the drop hits, the track really gets going, and the magic of W&W’s big room sound shines through. Flipping into a more house-driven style for the second half of the drop, there are tonnes of Dutch house vibes in this one. The final drop goes one further, hitting with some crazy sounds amongst chops from the original. Trap, Dutch house, big room house, electro house… there’s so much to take in with this one but the dynamic Dutchmen do what they do best, and create something spectacular!
