DVBBS The V replaces the U in their name and it is pronounced “DUH-BS” These Canadian brothers are a dance-duo who combine the genres of electro, house, reggae, rap, and pop in an all-encompassing hybrid that is not only perfect for clubs but it also reaches the top of the charts. Uniquely, DVBBS’ musical efforts are performed live as Alex sings and Chris drums, however they also perform in an engaging and energetic DJ set. DVBBS are Toronto-based multi-instrumentalists with an insatiable appetite for the DJ culture. Their first release in March 2012, Initio, is roughly translated to mean “in the beginning” which has truly developed into their mantra. “For DVBBS this is just the beginning. Initio has become our calling card.” DVBBS’ inspired debut single, “DRVGS,” made waves and raves from the moment the single dropped in the spring. Since then DVBBS has had a momentous year packed with an explosion of live dates and North American festival performances supporting top artists and DJ’s such as Deadmau5, LMFAO, Calvin Harris, Rusko, Eric Prydz, Dada Life, Borgore, Adventure Club, Dragonette, Steve Aoki, Far East Movement, and Carnage. DVBBS’ newest release, “We Know,” is a remarkable collaborative effort with Swanky Tunes and Eitro packed with powerful vocals and an escalating buildup followed by a much-anticipated beat drop that makes crowds wild.
