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.
Their first solo production, Feels Like Home, premiered exclusively on Dancing Astronaut, quickly garnering millions of plays on both SoundCloud and Spotify. The track hit #1 on SoundCloud’s Deep House chart and also claimed 4th position on DMC’s Buzz chart. Featuring the smooth vocals of rising star Son Mieux, Feels Like Home attracted international attention from magazines and bloggers with interviews and special mentions from EDM Sauce, Your EDM, DJ Mag NL, MrSuicideSheep, EDMTunes and countless more. Heralded as a “Dutch masterpiece” by Radio538 legend Wessel van Diepen, Feels Like Home continues to reach new audiences worldwide.
In May 2016 Jeroen and Steven released a new banger featuring Gia Koka called Don’t Leave Without Me. Within just 20 days of its release, this original production amassed over one million plays on SoundCloud. In addition to their original creations, The Him have also dropped official remixes for none other than The Chainsmokers, Rudimental, Otto Knows, Shift K3y, Shaun Frank, Jocelyn Alice and Dotan … to name a few.
