DVBBS & Alex Lifeson Team on Remake of 'Closer to the Heart', Out Early 2017

Canadian-born duo DVBBS (pronounced 'dubs') who are also brothers Chris and Alex Van den, Hoef, have taken the EDM scene by storm with their action-packed big room sound over the last few years. This year they have been busy touring, collaborating and making new music with some of the biggest artists in the music business.

Their current collaboration has them in the studio with Canadian Rock Legends Rush working on famed song "Closer to the Heart"

"When we first had dinner with Ray Daniels, Rush manager, we couldn't be any more excited hearing the stories Chris said. I grew up a drummer so Neil Pert was a legend to me and a strong influence my whole childhood and music career."
"They're the greatest Canadian band of all time so when we were given the chance to remake a song and implement new music and production with Alex Lifeson, you can imagine how excited we were. Can't wait to play people the song, and bridge the gap between generations says Alex. The song will be available for download in early 2017.

Other upcoming collaboration includes a single with EDM powerhouse Steve Aoki as well as a remix with Hip-hop star and producer Juicy J.


Dvbbs had their debut release picked up by the mighty Universal in 2012, these two brothers (aka Alex and Christopher van den Hoef) pride themselves on the most epic sounds, the most rampant, colorful riffs and over the top builds and drops, while they've shown their prowess in working with vocals.

The pop sensibilities of Angel, which hit #1 on the charts, and a glorious acoustic version of Gold Skies have pointed a finger towards a more eclectic future - one they have hinted at for their debut album (coming soon) and their new record label KANARY. "KANARY isn't just going to be one of those EDM imprints," Alex said around its launch. "We're going to promote great music and want to be vastly different to the big labels that are out there currently."

Meanwhile their DJ career has grown relentlessly in tandem, with the duo climbing to #16 on the DJ Mag Top 100 in 2015 following show-stopping performances everywhere from Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld to EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival and Hakkasan Las Vegas. 2015 also saw them stage their own Mount Woozy festival in their hometown Toronto - which sold out before the line-up was even announced. They plan on bringing 'Mount Woozy' all over the world so watch out for it. Their 'Never Stop The F*cking Rave' world tour also enjoyed similar success.

With over 200 shows across the world a year and their high-energy presence behind (and on top of!) the decks, they are working tirelessly to delight their huge global fan base.
