Filterheadz are a Techno DJ and producer duo from Belgium. Formed by brothers Bert and Maarten Wilmaers.
Filterheadz are best known for their smash techno hits Sunshine & Yimanya as well as their highly energetic DJ performances. It all started in the late 80’s when Bert & Maarten picked up their first musical instruments and took the first steps on the way to Rock ‘n Roll stardom. Filterheadz Love Techno : in mean time their techno output on Headroom labels Session and Traction starts flowing, collaborations with Zzino & Tomaz prove to be damn popular, finding favour with Carl Cox, and making it onto a quite a few comps. Intec get in touch and ask for ‘a latin techno track’, which ends up being the Ibiza favourite, and all round smash record ‘Sunshine’.
After a decade of hammering away in rehearsal rooms and local stages their dream to become rock stars took a surprising twist. Almost by accident they discovered the groovy rhythms of US House Music and started experimenting with loops and disco samples. Their remix of Minimalistix ‘Struggle for Pleasure’ became an instant progressive house classic.
Together with DJ Tomaz they embarked on a Techno Journey that would lead them to Carl Cox’ Intec where they released their all time classic “Sunshine”. Taking their signature sound even further Filterheadz released “Yimanya”, another big hit.
Extensive tours took Filterheadz to every corner of the globe and placed them high on the bill of events like I love Techno, Dance Valley & Tomorrowland and headlining clubs like Zouk, Ageha, Womb and Ministry of Sound.
2012 marked the 10th anniversary of Sunshine and a release of a smashing remix package on 1605. They also put themselves back on the Techno map with a string of new releases on MB Elektronics, Intec,1605, Bedrock, Bitten, Deeperfect & Toolroom.
2013: more inspired and productive than ever Filterheadz are once again rocking dancefloors all over the world.
