For every avid electronic dance music fan, there will always be an intense desire to make their passion a reality, but only few can succeed. Both in their late-twenties and united by their passion of house music that consumed their teenage years, Israel-based duo Teamworx certainly fit the bill for success.
Their journey began as two classmates, Ben Azoulay and Saar Lagziel, bonded over a shared passion and hunger to create their own unique signature sound. What started as a part-time hobby has now launched them to the forefront of the current electronic dance music scene, becoming an integral part of their daily lives.
In a short but sharp sweep, the budding duo have proven their worth on many levels. Leaping from the vibrant club scene in Tel-Aviv, the duo have went on to perform at Ultra Europe’s radio stage and the largest student’s festival in Israel in only a matter of months. Having conquered the most intimate club venues all the way to colossal festival mainstages, Teamworx have left their distinguishing mark and sound resonating across the globe.
Having debuted their first progressive house single "Levitate" on Sony Music Sweden, the duo swiftly shot up the Beatport charts, gaining the support of acts such as The Chainsmokers. In less than two years, Teamworx have dominated some of the dance music scene’s most reputable imprints, including Spinnin’, Protocol, and Fonk Recordings, and have captured the support of world renowned A-lists Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Martin Garrix, KSHMR, Nicky Romero, Hardwell, and Afrojack & David Guetta to name a few.
The duo’s breakthrough hit came in the form of a blazing collaboration in 2016 with Corey James, called "Make The Crowd Go". Swiftly picked up by Protocol Recordings label head Nicky Romero, the track became one of Protocol’s most supported releases that year, and received a separate vocal rendition as well. The track became a major festival mainstay, working its way into the mainstage sets of Steve Angello and Fedde Le Grand, as well as countless others. "Make The Crowd Go" was also featured in one of Pioneer’s CDJ marketing campaigns, where Steve Angello was shown demonstrating a new setup to British icon Tinie Tempah, with the track playing in the background.
The young talents have had a prolific year so far, releasing on Spinnin’ Records what has become one of 2017’s most supported tracks according to 1001tracklists. Their collaboration with Poland’s Tom Swoon, called "Atom", has skyrocketed charts since its inception and has swiftly become a staple in the sets of headliners such as Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Knife Party, Zedd, Steve Aoki, and Hardwell, gracing some of the biggest stages worldwide. Their previous release on Dannic’s Fonk Recordings titled "Whisper", also received international support, and launched the duo into mainstream consciousness.
With multiple releases forthcoming on Steve Angello's Size Records and a major festival slot lined up at Tomorrowland Unite, it is safe to assume Teamworx are one of Israel's most prominent exports in 2017. Far from a short and lucky strike upon the industry, the uber-talented pair show no signs of slowing down, and are putting all of their efforts into becoming the hottest act of the decade.
