Matt Halper and Eli Sones, the young masterminds behind Los Angeles’ Two Friends, have quickly revamped from high school bedroom producers to one of the most promising dance music duos right now. Known for their viral remixes of Dua Lipa’s “IDGAF,” Charlie Puth’s “How Long,” MGMT’s “Kids.” The Killers “Mr Brightside” and Kanye’s “Touch The Sky” , as well as their latest original offerings“Just A Kid,” “While We’re Dreaming,” “Emily” and “Out Of Love,”, the two have in unprecedented time mastered a wide range of genres from pop-leaning to dance-driven records.
Kicking off their musical journey in their senior year of high school (after being best friends since seventh grade), the boys honed their skills through remixing, taking on the likes of Lana Del Rey, Alesso and Tori Kelly to name but a few. Two Friends were quick to prove their versatile songwriting and production, drawing upon a wide variety of live instrumentation to create a truly multi-faceted sound with every release. They swiftly exceeded their influence beyond the online sphere, attracting the spotlight on stage and radio.
With support now coming from the likes of Tiesto, The Chainsmokers (who touted them to Billboard as one of the most underrated dance today), Martin Garrix, and many more, and with a whole host of original releases locked in for 2018, Matt and Eli undoubtedly look set to dominate this year and beyond.
