The Perry Twins are Los Angeles based Billboard Magazine Reporting DJs/Producers who released their latest single with Niki Haris called "Bad, Bad Boy".
"Bad, Bad Boy" is the Billboard Hot Club Play number 1 follow up to their debut single "Activate My Body" featuring Jania which went to number 1 on several charts including Cashbox Magazine, Logo (video), and Perfect Beat.
The twins, who received the Weho Award for Outstanding DJ of '08 and Edge Publications' DJ's On The Edge Award '09 have been dj'ing professionally since the late 90's and they have spun throughout the US at hot clubs, parties, pride festivals, and star-studded events. Originally from Rhode Island, Doug & Derek developed a passion for music at a very young age. They inherited their rhythm and love of performing from their parents who are in a rock band called "Fortune". Their Mom sings and Dad plays drums. The twins grew up dancing and playing music so it was no surprise when they decided to take on dj'ing, choreographing, dancing and remixing professionally.
At the same time The Perry Twins began spinning at clubs, they started their own radio mixshow, "Dance Planet", which aired for 5 years in New England. During that time, Derek & Doug's dance troupe of the same name performed throughout New York and the east coast at concerts, clubs and Pride events. Since relocating to Los Angeles, the twins have danced and choreographed for shows all over the country and their twintastic mixshows featuring the freshest dance music can now be heard internationally as well as on their own Dance Planet Radio.
The Perry Twins have worked with some of dance music's hottest artists including Kristine W, Expose's Gioia Bruno, Erin Hamilton, Kaylah Marin, Natalia, FoxxJazell, Tony Moran & Frenchie Davis. Doug and Derek have danced on NBC's "American Dreams", interviewed celebrities on FOX's "On-Air With Ryan Seacrest", competed on UPN's "Dance 360", back-up danced in "Chippendales: The Show", appeared on Disney Channel's "That's So Raven", starred in national TV commercials and they also create original music for film and television.
