After teasing “The Madness” this summer, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike have finally revealed what all the fuss is about. The brothers have just announced their premiere arena show, slated to take place in Antwerp, Belgium, close to the site of the Tomorrowland music festival, on December 21, 2013.
Tickets for ‘Bringing Home The Madness’ go on sale from September 10th 2013 priced between 30, 35 and 40 Euros. Make sure you’re first in line from 10am CEST when tickets go live, only at www.livenation.be.

After sending shockwaves through the crowd at Tomorrowland, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s collaboration with Sander van Doorn “Project T” is finally gearing up for its official release. Specially crafted to evoke big reactions from even bigger rooms, the trio’s latest effort has future anthem written all over it. DV & LM nail the formula to squeeze every ounce of potential energy out of a crowd with each successive release and “Project T” is no different. Combine their foolproof productions with the melodic expertise of Sander van Doorn and you’ve got a track destined for the top of the Beatport charts.
“Project T” will be released on September 2nd via Spinnin’ Records.

In 2012, Laidback Luke introduced his own version of The Avengers to Tomorrowland. Standing by his side was Martin Solveig suited as Batman and Chuckie fitted as Spiderman as he himself donned the Superman ‘S’ on his chest. Last weekend at the 2013 installment of Tomorrowland, the Dutch Clark Kent returned to his Super You & Me arena — this time with Batman and Ironman. While his sidekicks remained a mystery leading up to the beginning of their back-to-back-to-back set, it was Sander van Doorn who played Batman and Dimitri Vegas as the newly introduced Ironman. The set came jam-packed with a collision of their eclectic stylings and (although without a tracklist) Sander van Doorn has thankfully shared the experience via Soundcloud.
After surviving an emergency landing and crushing the Main Stage, respectively, Laidback Luke and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike came out of Tomorrowland better than ever. Though powerhouses on their own, earlier in July the Dutch/Belgian combo proved they’re even better together with “MORE.” Now opening up the tune to the remix floor, Blasterjaxx, D.O.D, and Shelco & Teenwolf all added their talents for a true Mixmash special. Each rework kept the electro brassy and the sound bold, tweaking the tune just enough to leave their mark. Now out on Beaport, the package has us hoping there’s “More” where this talent mashup came from.
Tomorrowland; a festival grand enough for its own dream world, large enough to appear as its own city, and praised enough to don official anthems. Per usual, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike take on production duties following 2012′s anthem nicknamed “Tomorrow Changed Today,” 2011′s Afrojack and Nervo collaboration “The Way We See The World,” and 2010′s Dada Life-assisted “Give Into The Night.” This year, the Belgian duo serve “Chattahoochee,” a labyrinth of striking tribal slaps eerily similar to those of “Wakanda” named after TomorrowWorld‘s Chattahoochee Hills location.
For the last few years, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike have been heavily involved with creating the Tomorrowland anthems. In 2010, both producers found themselves working alongside Dada Life and Tara MacDonald for “Tomorrow (Give In To The Night)” and were approached again for the honors in 2011 when the duo were joined by Nervo and Afrojack for “The Way We See The World.” Striking out on their own the following year, Dimitri and Mike laid down the “Tomorrowland Anthem 2012″ and returned yet again this year for “Chattahoochee.” With their name nearly synonymous with Tomorrowland, the duo’s 2010 Main Stage performance was one of the highlights of that year’s festival and helped to establish the duo as two of the brand’s biggest spokesmen.
Tracklist after the break.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike bring their patented brand of riot-inducing festival music to the Dancing Astronaut airwaves for our 66th edition of Axis. After making tidal waves with their biggest hit to date, “Wakanda,” the duo found their stride and style, releasing “Turn It Up,” “Mammoth,” and “MORE” to massive critical acclaim. Two of drop heavy EDM’s largest supporters, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike host an hour of blistering big room beats including tracks from Danny Avila, Steve Aoki, and Marcus Schossow. Two unreleased DV/LM outputs also make an appearance with both their Tomorrowland Anthem and Major Lazer remix invading the mix ahead of their late July release dates. Don’t be fooled by the “Center of the Universe” opener, it’s soothing melodies are introduced only to provide sharp contrast to the rest of the mix’s unrelenting percussion and gritty synthwork.
Tracklist after the break.
The biggest single of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s career, “Wakanda,” took Miami Music Week and the world by storm with its hard-hitting drum sections and tribal chants. Enter fellow “Turn It Up” collaborator Wolfpack, who aims to civilize the duos animalisitc nature with peak time chord progressions and big room sensibilities. Doing well to transform the track’s stripped down rhythms, Wolfpack imbues “Wakanda” with a heavy helping of progressive flair. The familiar chants remain intact but little else is recognizable here, leaving behind a much tamer version of the raucous original. Wolfpack’s remix is not alone, a hardstyle and trap rendition are also planned for the coming months.
The evil masterminds behind “Wakanda” and one third of the anthemic “Hit It,” put their heads and aural synapses together to create “Turn It Up,” their latest unapologetic peak time brain child. Driven by a thunderous kick and wonky drum lines, the mix has little interest for subtlety, developing with blaring sirens and electro house flairs that collide with the namesake’s vocal line – a tidal wave of gripping percussion in tow. Big room synthwork peaks through the mix, but only momentarily before any semblance of melody is interrupted by yet another aggressive drop. With 2013 still in its infancy, Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and GTA have made it abundantly clear that when it comes to feverish percussion with Dutch house touches, these three are at the top of their game.
