Hailing from Amsterdam, The Him is a music production duo formed by Jeroen Kerstens and Steven Berghuijs, creating buzz with their smash hit singles, official remixes and Midnight Mixtapes. Gaining inspirations from a wide variety of genres, The Him's sound is an infectious union of deep house, indie, nu disco and pop.
On the heels of their breakthrough single “Feels Like Home,” which garnered over 17 million streams on SoundCloud alone, Dutch deep house duo The Him are back with an extraordinarily fresh and soothing track, “Don’t Leave Without Me.” Slowing things down a bit more than usual, The Him deliver a chilled-out, sincere sentiment somewhere between midtempo trap and tropical, with some elements of funk and indie electronic thrown in for good measure. To top the track off, an enchanting vocal line from Gia Koka simmers pleasantly and gives all the right vibes for “Don’t Leave Without Me” to be one of the songs of the summer.
With almost 101.000 followers on SoundCloud, the popularity of their Midnight Mixtapes – featuring the latest deep house tracks, including their own – continues to grow each month. On top of that, The Him is supported and played by some of the world’s greatest DJs, such as: Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Pete Tong, Felix Jaehn, Oliver Heldens, Kygo, Don Diablo, The Chainsmokers and Sam Feldt. Cementing their position in the dance scene, and continuing to grow in their sound, The Him are certainly ones to keep an eye on over the years to come.
