2. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Wakanda (11x)
What’s that big electro song with those tribal samples? You know you’ve heard it, it’s from the Belgians: Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Their SHM approved banger, titled Wakanda, has been rocking dance floors ever since the summer, where it was unveiled as an ID track in Stockholm. With support from Sander van Doorn, Deniz Koyu, and the Swedish House Mafia themselves, Wakanda proved to be quite a formidable track during UMF.
1. W&W & Ummet Ozcan – The Code (12x)
The champion of UMF Miami 2013 is a Dutch trio, made up of trance/electro group W&W working together with fellow Dutchman Ummet Ozcan. for both had previously been links to trance, they decided to try something new with The Code. What resulted, is a track that absolutely smashed during the festival season. The track was Revealed (see what I did there? ;) ) by Hardwell during his ADE set at Escape, and had people buzzing on the Internet almost instantly. With 12 plays, and support from Nicky Romero, Sidney Samson, and Hardwell himself, The Code definitely deserves to be the #1 track of UMF Miami 2013.
