Joining forces for a highly anticipated, infectious summer anthem, Lucas & Steve (real names Lucas de Wert and Steven Jansen) and Deepend (real names Falco Aker and Robert Ratingen) went all in on "Long Way Home," their brand new, feel-good, summery house single via Dutch label Spinnin' Records.
Despite their long and already successful music careers, both acts broke new ground in the last year, with Lucas & Steve releasing "Inception" - the official 2019 Ultra Live Anthem - on Spinnin' Records, and Deepend putting out the viral hit "Woke Up In Bangkok" with Raison Music. A collaboration from these internationally recognized Dutch musicians and tastemakers has been a long time in the making. With the release of "Long Way Home," that time has finally arrived.
Speaking about the highly anticipated collaboration, Deepend said:
"This is definitely my most exciting collaboration to date. I’ve known the guys for many years and we always had the idea to team up one day. "Long Way Home" represents our common love for uplifting and melodic music suitable for both radio and the big festival stages!"
