Canadian breakouts Dzeko & Torres have long been in the favor of Dutch heavyweight Tiësto. This month, the young duo makes a formal debut on his Musical Freedom imprint, following-up on remix duties for Imagine Dragons with a notable landmark for the fast ascending newcomers. From day one, their melodic stamina and highly charged backbone has made the duo a consistent source of festival-primed club fuel. Traditionally tailored and fully functional for the larger crowds they have pulled more recently, “Highline” is testament to a duo whose agenda is as consistent as it is cunningly poised to the pulse of modern club land. For a label whose recent curve balls have included such big room departures as “Gecko,” the late rising “Highline” is enough assert that Tiësto is still keeping a watchful eye on the next generation of peak time hopefuls.
With an impending remix of Krewella’s “We Are One” waiting for its release date, Toronto’s Dzeko & Torres give away their newest remix as a free download. Much like they did to Chuckie and Promise Land’s “Breaking Up” and Capital Cities’ “Safe and Sound” which the duo also gave away, the breakout Canadian stars infuse “Demons” with a large dose of melody. Dan Reynolds’ haunting vocals remain intact and are still a huge part of the production, but the young duo turn the indie rock hit into a main stage approved production.
Young Toronto-based breakouts Dzeko & Torres are the latest to tap into the North American vocal dance explosion with remix duties for Krewella’s latest album single. As one of the more consistent big room duos to emerge from the Canada over the past couple of years, their remix duties for “We Are One” remain on point. Respectful enough to maintain the original’s striking vocal assets yet divergent enough to give the track an extended melodic peak time shelf life, this coherent yet adrenaline-fueled quality is exactly the caliber we have come to expect from a pair the world should be paying a lot of attention to in the coming year.

Coming off their first ever Tomorrowland performance, Canadian duo Dzeko & Torres take south for the inaugural TomorrowWorld. Taking away tips of the trade after circling the globe the past festival season, and coming equipped with their own edits and remixes, Julian and Luis’s Main Stage outing will bring a spark to Georgia early into the festivities. If you’ve yet to be acquainted with Dzeko & Torres, our TomorrowWorld Artist Spotlight series continues with a more formal introduction.
Back with another episode of their RAVE’N podcast, Canadian duo Dzeko & Torres offer an extra special 16th installment after finally receiving the recording of their Tomorrowland 2013 set. Clocking in at an hour, the first half of the mix comes live from Boom, Belgium, where Julian and Luis reveal an exclusive introduction edit, mash-ups from special guests, and debuts of their newest music. As for the rest of the outing, their preferences are unveiled through tracks from the likes of Vicetone and Northend before premiering The Chainsmokers remix of Icona Pop’s “Girlfriend.”
As Dzeko & Torres gear up for their Dim Mak-hosted Tomorrowland appearance, they’ve got a little pre-festival surprise for fans. After releasing their own “Down To This” collab with Chuckie earlier this year, the pair has put their own spin on the Dirty Dutch DJ’s 2012 “Breaking Up” collab with Promise Land. Giving the track their signature dancefloor shine, the duo kept Amanda Wilson’s unapologetic scales but stripped the piano and built a new melody over the electro influences. The straight progressive makeover breathed a whole new energy into the tune, increasing its shelf-life in a scene with a notoriously short attention span. For a scene also notorious for googling “free download,” the pair saved you the trouble by releasing the tune for free. Grab your download here.

Canadian duo Dzeko & Torres find themselves once again back in the studio, this time with Sarah Mcleod lending her vocal support on “Hurricane.” Shying away from the bounce that made “Buppy” such a banger, the duo deliver a crisply melodic big room track with pop sensibilities. Sarah Mcleod’s larger than life top line is deliciously sing-a-long-able while Dzeko & Torres once again assert their talent in the studio by weaving a web of ephemeral stringwork and progressive chordplay.
