Maurits Jan Westveen (born 26 October 1996), professionally known as Maurice West, is a Dutch musician, record producer and DJ from Amsterdam who is mostly known for his energetic and catchy bigroom sound. At just 22 years of age, Maurice has unquestionably solidified his name among some of the most promising producers in the dance music space. Maurice found his musical upbringing in a household of talented musicians and quickly took to the piano, guitar and drums. At an early stage in his career, the Dutch native caught the eye of veteran duo W&W and was immediately taken under their wing with a deal on their Mainstage Music imprint. His instantaneously recognizable bigroom and progressive sound has led to countless releases alongside some of the industry’s most in-demand names over the years, including Tiësto, Hardwell, Steve Aoki, KSHMR and D-Block & S-Te-Fan.
2018 was another unmistakably banner calendar for Maurice West, as his official Cascada remix with Hardwell for ‘Everytime We Touch’ and ‘Rhythm Of The Night’ single were two of the most widely-supported productions throughout the entirety of festival season. He graced the stage at both Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland where he made an appearance on its glorious mainstage for the second consecutive year. Maurice proceeded to cap off 2018 with an anthem for the ages on W&W’s Rave Culture with ‘The Kick’ and has remained a notable staple across an extensive list of DJ performances.
Looking to somehow top the previous 12 months, Maurice ignited 2019 with his take on Planet Perfecto Knights’ iconic trance production ‘ResuRection’, which was immediately supported by the legend Armin van Buuren during ASOT. If the multitude of chart-topping releases weren’t enough to convince listeners of his ability to hold his own in the studio, he recently completed the notorious SLAM! Studio Challenge where he was tasked with creating a full production in just one hour. The Dutch talent is now fresh off the release of his highly-anticipated W&W collaboration ‘Matrix’ as he continues to pick up an impressive amount of momentum as another summer of festivals rapidly approaches.
