Netherlands - Big Room, Progressive House
At just 22 years of age, Maurice West has unquestionably solidified his name among
some of the most promising producers in the dance music space. Maurice found his
musical upbringing in a household of talented musicians and quickly took to the
piano, guitar and drums. At an early stage in his career, the Dutch native caught the
eye of veteran duo W&W and was immediately taken under their wing with a deal
on their Mainstage Music imprint. His instantaneously recognizable bigroom and
progressive sound has led to countless releases alongside some of the industry’s
most in-demand names over the years, including Tiësto, Hardwell, Steve Aoki,
KSHMR and D-Block & S-Te-Fan.
2018 was another unmistakably banner calendar for Maurice West, as his official
Cascada remix with Hardwell for ‘Everytime We Touch’ and ‘Rhythm Of the Night’
single were two of the most widely-supported productions throughout the entirety
of festival season. He graced the stage at both ULTRA Music Festival and
Tomorrowland where he made an appearance on its glorious mainstage for the
second consecutive year. Maurice proceeded to cap off 2018 with an anthem for
the ages with ‘The Kick’, which has remained a notable staple across an extensive
list of DJ performances.
Looking to somehow top the previous 12 months, Maurice ignited 2019 with his
take on Planet Perfecto Knights’ iconic trance production ‘ResuRection’, which was
immediately supported by the legend Armin van Buuren during ASOT. If the
multitude of chart-topping releases weren’t enough to convince listeners of his
ability to hold his own in the studio, he recently completed the notorious SLAM!
Studio Challenge where he was tasked with creating a full production in just one
hour. The Dutch talent is now fresh off the release of his highly-anticipated W&W
collaboration ‘Matrix’ as he continues to pick up an impressive amount of
momentum as another summer of festivals rapidly approaches.
