The boys of W&W are at it again with their latest dancefloor smasher, Lift Off! After rising to #25 on this year’s DJ Mag poll, W&W have cemented themselves as the trance duo to watch in the coming year. Now Willem and Ward have wowed us anew with the energetic sound of their latest single on their own label, Mainstage Music.

The drop is by far the main point of emphasis in Lift Off!, even moreso than in most four-to-the-floor tracks. The energy created when the beat switches halfway through is impossible to ignore, generated through a combination of techy synths and Baltimore club rhythms. They’re already garnering significant airplay for the tune–their #1 supporter Armin van Buuren dropped it on the last three A State Of Trance radio shows in a row and named it the Future Favorite. Check out W&W’s upcoming US tour dates below, including two appearances on New Years Eve in both San Francisco and Seattle. Also, be sure to subscribe to their Mainstage podcast here–it’s the only podcast I listen to every week without fail. Pick up Lift Off! On Beatport.

Upcoming US tour dates:

December 08 – Palladium – Hollywood, CA
December 31 – Oracle Arena – Oakland, CA
December 31 – Wamu Theater – Seattle, WA
