"Tsunami" is a song by Canadian electronic music duo DVBBS and American DJ Borgeous. It was released as a single in September 2013 on the Dutch label Doorn Records.

Background[edit]

The creator of the track "Tsunami" was initially unknown. The single, which had been widely played at festivals for months, had been released and promoted by DJ Sander van Doorn, although he denied being the producer.[1]

Radio DJ Pete Tong confirmed the song to be the work of DVBBS and Borgeous when he played it on his show on BBC Radio 1 on August 16, 2013.[2] Billboard magazine called it "the most played tune at [2013's] Tomorrowland", a Belgian electronic music festival.[1] It was officially released on Doorn Records on August 19, 2013.[1][3]

A week later, it reached number 1 on the Beatport 100.[4]

Starting in the 2015–16 NHL season, the Vancouver Canucks play "Tsunami" whenever forward Jared McCann scores a goal at Rogers Arena, as part of their system of using personalized goal songs for each player.[5]
