The electronic duo DVBBS (pronounced “dubs”) comprises brothers Christopher and Alex Van Def Hoef  from Ontario, Canada. In the early stages of their career, the siblings joined forces with DJ Martin Sinotte calling themselves Dubbs. In 2010, the trio released the Generation Party EP and went on to tour with the likes of Steve Aoki and LMFAO. Sinotte left the group in 2012, prompting the brothers to change their name slightly from Dubbs to DVBBS. Under the new name, they released the EP Initio, fusing a variety of influences in house, electro, reggae, and dub.

Their first major success came in 2013 with the track Tsunami, a collaboration with DJ and producer Borgeous, released on Sander van Doorn‘s label Doorn Records. The single went to the top of the Dutch charts and was also a major success in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, climbing into the Top 20. They were slotted at number 16 on the DJ Mag Top 100 list in 2015 and held a residency at the popular dance venue Hakkasan in Las Vegas, as well as staging their own Mount Woozy Festival in Toronto.
