20-year old Dutch DJ and producer Maurice West has already made huge moves in
the dance music community, signing to W&W’s imprint Mainstage Music as their first
artist as well as joining the Armada team within just a year after releasing his first
track. Maurice set his goals at a young age, growing up in a family of skillful
musicians and exploring instruments like the piano, guitar and drums.
In 2015 he released a streak of hard hitting tracks like Blaze (Sweet Lies) and Kung
Fu (with Kenneth G), earning him a following that acknowledges him for his own
recognizable sound. The sound waves that leave his studio always have a heavy and
exciting beat blended with powerful and catchy melodies. Combining his musical
background and abilities to create progressive and electro house makes him push
boundaries by mixing sounds from different genres of music. Not playing by the rules
and letting go of the conventions within genres is what makes Maurice a fresh new
talent on the scene.
Maurice’s work is getting him massive support from the dance music elite, such as
Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix and
Nicky Romero. Bigroom legends W&W have taken him under their wings and blow
away huge festival crowds like Tomorrowland and Ultra with his tunes. By dropping
bangers like Poseidon, Dojo and TEMPLE (with hardstyle legends D-Block & S-Te-
Fan), Maurice is taking the download charts and radio airwaves by storm. With many
more monstrous tracks and massive collaborations coming up, advancing as W&W’s
apprentice, Maurice West can only emerge into a big name in dance music.
