Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are a Flemish electronic DJ duo from Belgium composed of two brothers Dimitri Thivaios and Michael Thivaios. They currently hold the 2nd spot on DJ Magazine's annual Top 100 DJs poll.[1]

Background[edit]

Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike began to make their first steps as DJ's at the ages of 14/15. In their early years they made several appearances in small clubs and was the resident BeatFM radio DJ. Dimitri then left Flanders in 1999 and began touring Europe. He lived in Mallorca and then in Halkidiki, Greece before moving to Ibiza in 2003, where he was a resident in major clubs such as Privilege and Space.[2]

After living in Mallorca and on the Canary Islands, he settled in Zante, Greece where he was a resident of Amnesia and The End in 2006. In autumn 2006, Dimitri returned to Belgium to work with his brother, Like Mike, and produced their first release Cocaine / Eivissa 2007. His remix of "Work That Body", 2008 caught the attention of DJ Axwell, who entrusted them with a remix of "Rotterdam City of Love" by Abel Ramos for his label Axtone.

In 2010 they appeared as Tomorrowland Hosts for the first time and were allowed to make the anthem of the festival, this was "Tomorrow (Give Into The Night)" with Dada Life and Tara McDonald, which was released by the label of the duo, Smash The House. In 2011 Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike returned to make the anthem, this time with Afrojack and Nervo. The single was called "The Way We See The World". "Tomorrow Changed Today" was the anthem for the 2012 edition of the festval. For the latest edition of Tomorrowland, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike made the anthem "CHATTAHOOCHEE". This single, released by Smash The House label/Spinnin Records, arrived at Beatport Chart Top 1 in less than 3 days.In the year 2014, this duo again made the anthem for Tomorrowland called waves, with W&W. Being the hosts of Tomorrowland they closed Tomorrowland 2014 with their last closing act featuring Martin Garrix, Diplo, and Steve Aoki. Like Mike had introduced the wall of death to Tomorrowland when they drop their collaboration with Martin Garrix called 'Tremor'.
