LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are set to produce and host a series of high-power DJ sets in Sensorium Galaxy. The dance music duo joins a growing roster of world-leading electronic artists, including David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren and Carl Cox, who are set to share their music in PRISM, the social VR platform's electronic music hub, which launches next year.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are among the most famous names in electronic music. Known for their epic stage performances, the Belgian brothers electrifying live combination of DJ sets and crowd-busting MC'ing has seen them perform around the world at leading clubs and festivals including Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa Ibiza and EDC Las Vegas. As well as ranking #1 in the 2019 and 2015 list of Top 100 DJs by DJ Mag, these award-winning artists are also known for their chart-topping dance anthems and huge remix cuts, including A-list collaborations with American singer-songwriter Ne-Yo, David Guetta & Kiiara, and Daddy Yankee & Natti Natasha.
In preparation for their performances on PRISM, the world's most sophisticated venue for virtual reality music events, the duo will be digitized using avant-garde motion capture technology to create photorealistic avatars. These avatars will be used for all of their performances inside Sensorium Galaxy, which is scheduled to launch in early 2021.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike: "We're really excited to take part in a project that's pushing the boundaries of communications and entertainment. For us, performing is all about connecting with our fans and Sensorium Galaxy gives us a chance to do this regardless of where we all are in the world. Until now, such experiences were only available at real-life events, so we can't wait to bring the same kind of high energy performance, high level production that we're known for into the virtual world."
This exclusive collaboration is a result of joint efforts between Sensorium Corporation and renowned creative agencies The Night League & High Scream to make the best real-life entertainment globally available through virtual reality.
"The unrivalled energy that Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike bring to the stage has cemented their place amongst the world's top DJs. Always ahead of the latest music trends and the creative minds behind countless dancefloor anthems, it is essential they join us as part of Sensorium Galaxy. I can't wait to see how their avatars will take crowds to the next level and create some jaw-dropping shows in the immersive virtual world of PRISM." - Yann Pissenem, CEO & Founder of The Night League.
