Darude, a name synonymous with driving beats and unrelenting energy, has been an innovator in dance music since he smashed his way onto the scene 10 years ago with the global hit singles 'Sandstorm', 'Feel The Beat' and 'Out Of Control' and the first album 'Before The Storm'. The second album 'Rush' with singles 'Music' and 'Next To You' again conquered charts around the world in 2003 and now he's back with more genre-breaking singles like 'Tell Me', 'My Game', 'In The Darkness' and 'I Ran (So Far Away)' from his 3rd artist album, 'Label This!' which is poised to rock its way up the charts and across the globe. 2011 saw Darude starting a record company, EnMass Music, with American DJ/producer Randy Boyer and that'll be keeping him busy in addition to touring and planned single and album releases of his own.
Kevin Alves would be hard pressed to deny the reality of destiny. As early as he could remember Kevin always wanted to be a musician and was involved with music from singing to starting his own band at age 15. “Music is the most intense way of expressing myself I’ve ever found. Alves’ influence comes from many styles of music. All eras and genres are fair game as his strongest inspiration comes f
rom music that evokes emotion.
Alves is currently working on his original music and sound design. He recently released a remix for Ultra Records of Ecotek’s “Into the night.” Also a release with Nadia Ali’s label, who Alves worked with for a remix of “Point the Finger,” which stayed on Beatport’s top 100 for several weeks, Look forward to Alves’ new productions and sample
cds coming very soon, and check him out in your hometown where he will be spinning at your favorite venues.
