------------------------------------------------------------------------ / DRD Music / Finland

Multi-platinum award winning producer and international artist Darude, has to date sold over 5 million records worldwide and is recognized by many as one of the most influential artists to emerge from the dance scene in the past decade.

Hailing from a small village called Hinnerjoki in Finland the patriotic Finn now resides with his family in his second home Atlanta (America), a move that compliments his ever growing popularity in the US. A seasoned professional in his own right, through travelling the globe he has been fortunate to experience many cultures and see some of the worlds most beautiful and awe-inspiring destinations; believing this education of life has been a catalyst for much of his recent music.

Although famed for the global smash 'Sandstorm', which became the world's best selling 12" vinyl of 2000, Ville Virtanen aka Darude has had a long and successful career as both a live performer and club DJ, banking an average of 140, 000 air miles per year. Alongside 10 years working as a producer and engineer with nothing but achievement to look back on.

Having released numerous chart topping hits, three artist albums and through his remix work he has brought singles such as ATB feat. York - 'The Fields of Love and The Thrillseekers - 'Synaesthesia to a mainstream audience, gaining him undiminished support from industry leaders such as Radio 1's Pete Tong, Judge Jules, Ferry Corsten and Paul Oakenfold.

Whether in his studio in America or Finland, recent times have seen him cement further his reputation as one of the most innovative and exciting figures in modern dance music. With his distinctive styles of progressive and uplifting trance, his music continues to get talked about by both music fans and critics alike with recent support coming from DJ Magazine and Billboard magazine to name but two.

Constantly ahead of the game, Darude was one of the first DJs to embrace MP3's when he released 'Sandstorm' in late 1999, and also released several tracks to data zip drives in early 2000.

Although having set the benchmark for a generation of producers with 'Sandstorm', the ever modest professional is a strong supporter of new talent and music. So much so that he recently took the decision to set up his own imprint to push not just his own music, but also that of artists whom he believes in. With a long list of achievements already to his name, Darude could be forgiven for resting on his lot, but instead 2010 will see him busy as ever by encompassing a staggering amount of new projects, including a mix album project (in planning), several new singles and remixes, as well as his new record label and a world tour.

Kristina Sky – Ultra Records

Kristina Sky became an Electronic Dance Music fanatic at the age of 16 when she began attending underground parties in Los Angeles. It wasn’t long before she began organizing and producing commercial and underground events all over Southern California.

After years of throwing parties and managing local DJs, Kristina was given a pair of old turntables by a boyfriend and began obsessively collecting vinyl. In early 2002, she was booked to play her first event and the response was overwhelming. Since then, Kristina’s been pounding her unique style of high energy, melodic trance — and her signature blend of progressive, house and electro — into the heads of dance music lovers all around the world.

In 2007, Kristina was signed by Beatkraft DJ Agency, and has been crushing dancefloors ever since, with performances at various venues around the globe, from the Philippines to Vancouver, Canada, Seattle, Washing ton, Miami, FL and beyond.

Kristina’s mission has remained clear — whether it's a warm-up set for a Top 100 DJ or headlining the night herself — to get the crowd moving, play the tracks they want to hear, and give every clubber the ultimate nightclubbing experience!
