Hailing from the Netherlands, Quincy Deira and Thomas van Ginkel are two 23 year guys who are better known together as 2CRE8. Friends since high school, the duo occasionally made music together for fun but it wasn’t until a gig at the MASTERS OF LXRY fair in December 2014 that everything fell into place and they decided to form a duo.
Since then, the twosome has been creating their own music together. Playing to their strengths, Thomas’ passion for DJing and production alongside Quincy’s passion for composing, chords, and writing, provides for both an interesting and passionate sound, resulting in a track that musically sets them apart from current DJ acts.
Now, C2RE8 set out to establish themselves as serious musicians with the early 2019 release of their debut single ‘NaughtyBoy’. Combining catchy lyrics with pop, commercial dance and urban influences, the single is a slender fit for the radio, providing that feel good tune needed to instantly put you in an uplifting mood. ‘Naughty Boy’ is energetic and powerful – a sure-fire remedy to blow away those winter blues.
Speaking on the single, C2RE8 explain: “It describes us now, we’re still naughty boys”.
