Two Friends is the musical creation of longtime companions Matt Halper and Eli Sones. The dance-pop duo’s fitting name is a reflection of their lifelong bond as both musical collaborators and best friends. Recently signed to the ascending imprint Helix Records, Two Friends are pioneering an artistic identity that is simultaneously relatable as it drives fans to the dance floor. Making their debut on the imprint in May of 2022, “Wish You Were Here” featuring vocalist John K (Epic Records) is only one of a host of releases set to make their way out on the label across 2022 and beyond.
With fans at the epicenter of their success, they take pride in engaging with them both at shows and across their social media platforms. The tandem exploded into the global dance music landscape with their viral remixes of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside,” Blink 182’s “I Miss You,” and their award-winning Big Bootie Mix series. Amassing millions of streams across YouTube and SoundCloud per installment, the Big Bootie Mix series has become the soundtrack to many a good-night-out across 10 years of regular releases.
Testaments to their intricately-produced live sets, Two Friends have performed at iconic venues from the likes of Aragon Ballroom, and Shrine LA, just to name a few. At the heels of their sold-out 2022 Adventureland tour, the pair continue their ascent to the upper echelons of dance-pop excellence via new original productions, a relentless touring schedule, and the burgeoning of the Big Bootie Universe. As they continue building a legacy crossover brand, Matt and Eli will always just be Two Friends.
