Harder They Come is the production + DJ alias of Chris Pattison & Mike Incalcaterra from Burlington, Vermont. These two house music enthusiasts can usually be found in the studio pumping out innovative beats or DJ'ing in Burlington Vermont where they have developed a loyal hometown following. Harder They Come has opened and performed with such popular acts as Joeski, Hector Romero, DJ Dan, Mark Farina, Blond:ish, Finley and Mr. C. solidifying their role as Burlington's premiere house DJ duo.
"As producers, the two have a real gift for arrangements, deftly weaving unexpected elements and sounds that perfectly balance each other. The breaks and drops are all diamond cut, thanks to precise editing that turns on a dime without missing a beat."

The duo had a meteoric run in 2015, working the touring circuit and gaining a reputation for transcendent live sets. As DJs, they make their name from podcasts: stitching new, classic and obscure tracks into seamless, continuous playlists. They also hold down their home town turf, with two regular club residencies: Half Lounge @ 136 Church St. Burlington VT on the first Thursday of each month, and Sunday Night Mass @ Club Metronome 188 Main St, Burlington VT.
