Universally respected within the dance music industry, Armand Van Helden is certainly one of the most reputed names for the genre over the past two decades or so. Helping transfer it to the mainstream, his work with a wide array of acts has been a potent influence on the mainstreams transition to a more electronic basis.
Hailing from America, the Producer/DJ spent a good amount of his time in New York City before expanding to the corners of the globe. One of the the longest serving active acts, he still remains loyal to the cause, and noble in his diversity of sound.
Recently returning to studio production and his reputed House music sound, his release on Spinnin’ Records, “Wings“, was met with a raucous reception. Sampling the 1980’s classic “I Won’t Let You Down” by Ph. D, Armand Van Helden put a refreshing update to modern and characterize the composition.
Returning once again, another eagerly anticipated track has already been played and featured by a whole host of respected and popular artists. As featured on Spinnin’s ADE Day Mix, “Know Thyself” has received support from the likes of Martin Garrix, R3hab, Danny Howard, Kryder and Annie Mac to name a few. A major nod to the House genre once again, the return to his roots as it were is certainly paying dividend for both fans and the New York native.
Still in a preview form, you can listen to Armand Van Helden’s latest musical craftsmanship and studio mastery before its upcoming release!
