Five years ago, five of Russia’s most talented producers came together to release one of electronic dance music’s biggest festival anthems. The stellar duo of Hard Rock Sofa joined forces with formidable trio Swanky Tunes to present the earth-shattering tune “Here We Go“, which recently celebrated its release’s five-year anniversary.
The track has created tremors all across the globe with its heart-pumping basslines and heavy synths. “Here We Go” has also taken center stage and has pleased the crowds of major festivals from Tomorrowland to Creamfields. Additionally, the record has also earned commercial success after being featured in the 2013 action film Fast & Furious 6.
As a result of this track’s success, Hard Rock Sofa were able to break through the electronic music scene and rise through to greater prominence. The duo of Alexander Shapovalov, who is currently known as Shapov, and Denis Chepikov released several more gems afterwards, including “Rasputin”, “Get Down” with Eva Shaw, and “Arms Around Me” with Skidka.
Similarly, Swanky Tunes achieved tremendous success after seeing their track blow the charts off. With other records such as “Sending My Love” and “Scratch” under their name, this trio has become three of the most-respected producers in the business.
