The aliases of Greek-Belgian brothers Dimitri and Michael Thivaios, the EDM DJ duo Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, started their musical careers at a young age. From the age of 14, the pair began to DJ around their local nightclubs and became presenters on Belgium radio station BeatFM a few years later. They left Belgium in 1999 to play a European tour and settled in Mallorca to establish their names on the European dance circuit before moving to Halkidiki, Greece and then Ibiza in 2003. It was there that they made their names after securing residencies at respected nightclubs Privilege and Space. Next, after being made resident DJs of the nightclubs The End and Amnesia in Zante, Greece in 2006, they produced their first single, ”La Cocaina (Eivissa 2007),” which was released on white label the following year. A slew of miscellaneous releases followed, but it was when their 2008 remix of Dave Lambert and Housetrap’s ”Work That Body” was noticed by Axwell — who then enlisted them to remix Abel Ramos’ ”Rotterdam City of Love” for his label Axtone — that DJ stardom beckoned. They hosted the Tomorrowland EDM festival in 2010, and the following year collaborated with Afrojack and Nervo on the smash single ”The Way We See the World.” The duo launched their Smash the House imprint in 2011. Several singles released on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label followed, and the duo scored seven number one hits on digital music retailer Beatport in 2013 alone. The brothers racked up numerous pop hits in Belgium and other European countries, including ”Chattahoochee” and ”Find Tomorrow (Ocarina),” which both hit number two in Belgium. 2014 found the duo cracking the U.K. charts for the first time when ”Tremor” (their collaboration with Martin Garrix) hit number 30. Hits and festival headlines continued, and the duo was ranked number two on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs poll in 2015. While Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike worked on their debut full-length in 2015, singles ”The Hum” (with Ummet Ozcan) and ”Higher Place” (featuring Ne-Yo) hit number one in Belgium as well as the top of the Billboard dance chart. In 2016, they collaborated with Dutch production duo W and W on the single ”Arcade,” which reached number one on electronic music site Beatport’s Top 100 EDM songs chart, as well as hitting the Belgium and French charts. Singles such as ”Melody,” featuring Steve Aoki and Ummet Ozcan, and ”Stay Awhile” kept the brothers in the public eye, with the pair also going one better than in the previous year’s DJ Mag Top 100 DJ’s second place by claiming the number one spot, the first for a duo. October saw the release of ”Hey Baby,” collaboration with American producer Diplo, who had previously joined the pair at their House of Madness party in Ibiza.

One of Lost Frequencies biggest success in recent memory has to be that of the unmistakeable distinction of ‘Where Are You Now’ that, as of 2022, saw him hit #1 on The Official Big Top 40, and Top 5 on the Official Charts in the UK, also peaking at #1 on the Shazam charts in 10 countries, with over 500 million combined streams as of February ‘22, earning further accolades such as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Track Of The Week’.
