Initially an anonymous duo, TWRK were already cranking out dance floor hits for Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint when the influential DJ/producer revealed their true identities on his BBC Radio program as Benzi and Esentrik. On the backs of recent club-filling anthems like “Hands On it” and “Wheels in Motion,” TWRK are simply no longer able to keep a low profile. We caught up with the duo to find out how they got their start and what they’ve got cooking for 2017.

We came together in 2013 after meeting on the Internet. We were living in different cities at the time Detroit and NYC, and it’s been crazy since.
