More on Mr. Black and WAO
Mr.Black can lay a just claim to having one of the Middle East’s best portfolio’s of dance music. Having received significant support from names such as Hardwell, R3hab, Ummet Ozcan and Chuckie, Tel Aviv’s leading DJ/Producer also delivers classy remixes and sets to his repertoire. Having also had a year to remember in 2015 that pushed him towards the major global spotlight, this year is set to be another elevating step in his already decorated career.
WAO has already collaborated with the likes of leading South American names like FTampa on Hardwell’s esteemed Revealed Records, as well as given away a number of classy free downloads. With the Dutchman often featuring the Brazilian’s work on his weekly podcast ‘Hardwell On Air’, the exposure has boosted WAO’s profile significantly. And with features also on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s compilation of tracks, he’s attracting some of the biggest names in the scene early on.”
