FIREBEATZ

Nobody in his or her right mind would want to extinguish the flames generated by Firebeatz, the dynamic Dutch duo of Tim Smulders and Jurre van Doeselaar, who’ve become a true international sensation with their fully engulfed combination of original music, remixes, and big-name collaborations.

It’s no surprise to find them in DJ Mag’s hotly contested ranking of the annum’s 100 top DJs. But narrowing it down to a mere hundred is not enough for genre superstar Calvin Harris, who includes the duo among a much narrower ranking. “Firebeatz are in my top five dance producers right now,” Harris declares. “They have many original ideas and a very unique understanding of groove and dynamics that I love.” He put his career where his mouth is when he enlisted Firebeatz as collaborators on “It Was You,” a track from his hit 2014 album Motion (following up their remix of Harris’ “Thinking About You” from the year before).
