With a friendship longer than ten years, The Walk and Rogerseventytwo started to work together as dj’s in the summer of 2004. Soon gigs followed in the Netherlands, including the big festivals, Prague, Paris, Copenhagen, Bratislava, Berlin, Freiburg and London.
In 2007 they launched AMSTEREO, their own club night in one of the most outstanding clubs at that moment in the city of Amsterdam: The Flex Bar. Teenage Bad Girl, Les Petits Pilous, Aysam, Danger, Breakbot, Djedjotronic, Hey Today!, and Scenario Rock came to join the line-up in the first, very successful editions. Their name, as dj-duo as well as individual dj’s grew rapidly in Holland and the rest of Europe. It was in 2008 when Erol Alkan himself dubbed these guys as the ones to watch in the future. And he his right.
After several remix duties for friends and their extended Amstereo family, Roger and Tom decided to change their name to TWR72 and focus more on producing tracks rather than dj-ing. Needless to say they are still in high demand as dj’s but they took a couple of months of the produce tracks. With interest from such diverse labels as DJ Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch, GLDJ’S and Magnetron Music, they decided to sign with new label Instant Replay.
