The girls’ are the new primetime Saturday evening presenters on the all new Virgin Radio and with station Rajars coming in at nearly half a million a week and guests such as Sigala, Fatman Scoop, Tove Lo and Olly Murs sharing the guest mic with them every week, the show is really kicking off (read more about their presenting on the Hear Us page). In just the past couple of weeks they’ve broadcast live from all the Summer festivals, warmed up for Jess Glynne and Fleur East at Wembley Arena and headlined Fashion Undressed festival on the Southbank for Mastercard.
Their DJ career took off after the 2012 Olympic Torch relay beginning with live performances on Sky Sports. This progressed to residencies in London’s top clubs like Whisky Mist, the W hotel and the Mayfair club. They’ve since branched out as far as Morocco (Lotus Club) and as large as Belgium’s Versus, Europe’s largest club. They continue to complement their touring with a monthly homecoming residency at “Scotland’s best Nightclub” Why Not. Their reach is ever-expanding: venues such as Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes for “Pop Shop”, stints at the O2 Islington, House of Vans, DJing for celebrity parties such as Liam Gallagher’s 40th and playing sets that attract music artists One Direction, and Ed Sheeran. They’ve DJ’d all over the UK for their own tours and more recently took centre stage as resident DJs for the Official Charts Live Tour playing to thousands of students every week alongside top 10 artists.
They regularly DJ at bespoke events for the world’s biggest brands such as Hyundai, Diet Coke, Tia Maria, MAC Cosmetics and Armani. Last year saw them open the main stage at Sunset Festival to 30,000 people, which has opened doors to a tour of headline festivals this year.
The Mac Twins continue to be successful because they remain true to themselves while embracing the creative tension that inevitably comes out when working as a pair. It really is the best of both worlds, no compromise.
