Armand Van Helden - USA Trance DJ
Armand Van Helden has a barrage of album productions and remixes under his belt. This talented DJ cum producer has been recording for famous labels like Strictly Rhythm, Logic, and Henry St. A string of hits starting 1996 onwards has made him a central figure in the club scene. One of the most famous producers around in the scene, Van Helden spent time in Holland, Turkey, and Italy while growing up. Since his father was an Air force Man, he used to get relocated frequently and this gave the youngster an opportunity to explore different genres of music in all these countries at a very young age.
As a young kid of 13, he had a drum machine and very soon two years after he was DJing mostly hip hop and freestyle. Helden attended college in Boston and this came as a boon to him. He was very soon doing local gigs and gained a residency at Boston’s superclub Loft. His residency catapulted the fame of the club and it became the most popular club in the city. He released his ‘Move It to the left’ by Sultans of Swing in 1992 and later on in 1994 came his ‘Witch Doctor’. Witch Doctor quickly became a dance floor anthem around the world and got him international recognition.
His remix skills saw him mix some of the hits of Deep Forest, Faithless, New Order, and Jimmy Somerville, among others. The year 1996 onwards Van Helden was a name to reckon with when it came to remixing. He did remixes for leading artists including Janet Jackson, Puff Daddy, Rolling Stones, and Sneaker Pimps, to name just a few. His singles too continued to come out at more regular frequencies with massive hits like ‘Cha Cha Cha’ and ‘The Funk Phenomena’, along with the release of his first album ‘Old School Junkies’.
He released a retrospective album in 197 and then came his party breakbeat album ‘Sampleslayer’, a chart buster. His ‘2 Future 4 U’ EP followed in 1998. The Valden saga continued with ‘Gandhi khan’ in 2001, ‘Funk Phenomena: The Album’ in 2003, ‘New York: A Mix Odyssey in 2004 and ‘Nympho in 2005. Trust Van Helden to better himself in the near future.
