REVIEW: The Him feat. Lissa - I Wonder out on Polydor / Universal Music

For some time now the DJ duo The Him alias Jeroen Kerstens and Steven Berghuijs has caused a sensation in the dance world.

The two Amsterdamers have already remixed for greats such as Tiesto, Martin Garrix and Rudimental and were on tour last summer with The Chainsmokers.

Their first single "Feels Like Home" was released in early 2016 and was promptly ranked No. 1 on the soundcloud "Deep House" charts, as well as over 15 million hits worldwide. Also the second single "Don't Leave Without Me" feat. Gia Koka was a success and was played over 1 million times on Soundcloud within 20 days.

After more singles, their "Midnight Mixtapes" and numerous remixes, the duo presents their new single "I Wonder" feat. Lissa.

Their sound - a contagious mix of deep house, indie, nu disco and pop - is also thrilled by other well-known DJs such as Tiesto, Pete Tong, Kyo and Felix Jaehn, who regularly add tracks from "The Him" ​​to their playlists.

No question: The Him are on their way to taking their place in the international dance world!

Jeffrey Yau of Your EDM: “I’m not a betting man, but if I were I’d definitely put some money on the talented Dutch duo to become the next breakthrough tropical house act.”
Melvin van der Waal of DJ Mag NL: “The almost unrealistic leaps in terms of progress and their varied deep house music sound made The Him in short time an incredible influential player in the dance music industry.”
