The same year also saw the duo hit the road with a live sold out North American headline tour that included festival stops at Ultra Miami, Life Is Beautiful, EDC Mexico, EDC Japan, MadeIn America, Okeechobee, Voodoo Fest and many more.
Despite a pandemic hit 2020/21 the duo continued creating, releasing their 5-track “Moonlight”EP in October, which featured their cover of Aaliyah classic “One In A Million” and electro/pop crossover hits “Moonlight” &“Want To Know”, in addition to official remixes for the likes of Tiesto, Jai Wolf, Crooked Colours and more, highlighting the demand from their peers for thePhantoms touch.
