Shows & DJ Profiles
Hagenaar and Albrecht
With firmly established monthly residencies in Singapore, Russia, France, US and playing for clubbing brands around the world, the duo felt the need to bring more than just a DJ set to the ever changing dance floor of the digital age and stepped into the studio for the first time to create the unmistakable Hagenaar & Albrecht sound.
In 2008, they released their debut single ‘What Would We Do' on Shapeshifter's label - Nocturnal Groove, which went No.1 across the download sites, hitting the top 20 in the ITunes dance chart, got licensed on multiple compilations and became a dance floor destroyer for major DJ's aross the globe. Chart topping remixes followed throughout 2009 before their follow up summer anthem - ‘In & Out' ,a rework of the classic Adeva vocal, was released on Dutch No.1 dance label Spinnin' Records. Receiving rave reviews across the industry and a solid favourite with the biggest names in dance including David Guetta, Roger Sanchez and Axwell the global smash brought them to the attention of major labels across the Atlantic. In early 2010, the big hitting producers were asked by one of the world's largest record labels ‘ATLANTIC RECORDS' to remix the forthcoming releases from ‘Wynter Gordon', one of the hottest emerging female artists, and the 6 time Grammy award winning R&B star ‘Toni Braxton'. With their mix of Wynter Gordon - ‘Dirty Talk' hitting the No1 spot on the US Billboard Dance chart and taking inspiration from Atlantic's classic back catalogue, Patrick and Alistair re-worked the Ivor Novella award winning global hit ‘I Won't Let You Down' by Ph.D. Instantly gaining ecstatic approval from the original artist, the duo presented the track to Atlantic US, who immediately snapped up the track and signed the boys, together with Warner UK, for a multi single deal.
