Throwback Thursday: Darude
‘Sandstorm’ can be credited as one of the most classic party throwbacks of our generation thanks to its creator and trance producer, Darude. In the late 90’s Darude (Ville Virtanen) edged his way into the music industry after supplying radio stations with continual demos of his newest work. After his idol, JS16 signed him to his own label 16 Inch Records, Darude blasted into the millennium, captivating the world with one of the most well known EDM tracks in the world: ‘Sandstorm’.
Living up to its name, ‘Sandstorm’ took the music industry by storm and became the world’s best selling 12” vinyl of 2000. The double Platinum and Gold successes of his first album “Before the Storm”, prompted Darude to set out on a 7-week “Tour de Trance” in the United States which was a massive success.
Now Darude has conquered almost all aspects of the music industry; from additional album releases, his radio show “Salmiakki Sessions” on ETN.fm, and the appearance of his work in countless movies, shows and other media outlets, Darude’s work will forever be branded into our minds.
Catch Darude at Foundation Nightclub alongside local support Johnny Monsoon, Chronus and Trey Rossick.
Saturday, November 10th.
