Released 11 Years Ago: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Wakanda

Eleven years ago, on February 4, 2013, the Belgian DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike made a striking entry into Axtone Records with their debut single, ‘Wakanda’. This release marked a significant collaboration with the label, run by Axwell of Swedish House Mafia fame, with whom the brothers had a longstanding relationship, including their notable remix of the Swedish House Mafia anthem ‘Leave The World Behind’. ‘Wakanda’ was a distinct departure from the typical Axtone sound, surprising many fans with its unique blend of African chants and robust electronic beats.

The track was not just a club hit; it also captivated the global electronic music community, both in physical venues and online. Those who experienced the Swedish House Mafia‘s ‘One Last Tour’ were among the first to witness the electrifying energy of ‘Wakanda’. Its fusion of cultural elements with hard-hitting electronic music exemplified the innovative spirit of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, pushing the boundaries of what was expected in the electronic dance music scene.

Dimitri & Mike Thivaios, known worldwide as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, have become towering figures in the electronic music landscape. Renowned for their dynamic performances and energetic productions, they have not only become ambassadors of the globally celebrated music festival Tomorrowland but have also earned the adoration of electronic music fans across the globe.
