Biography

Up to #49 in 2009 DJ Magazine Poll

Without doubt the hottest new trance DJ / producer to emerge from Holland this past couple of years is Richard Durand. Recommended by the mighty Tiësto as his ‘Tip For The Top in 2007’ in DJ Magazine, Richard responded with a string of stunning productions, including official remixes for Tiësto, culminating in a new entry placing in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs poll at the end of 2007.

The Richard Durand sound is trance, techno and tough electro in a unique package that’s both dynamic and devastating. Having initially made his mark as a solo producer with big tech trance bombs such as ‘Make Me Scream’ and ‘Slipping Away’ on the Terminal 4 label, the huge success of his remixes of Tiësto singles ‘Lethal Industry’, ‘Flight 643’ and ‘Break My Fall’, plus infamous festival favourite reworks of the likes of Prodigy ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ and Snow Patrol ‘Chasing Cars’ soon had Richard Durand marked as one of the hottest remixers on the planet with consistent playlist support from the DJing elite Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and Eddie Halliwell to name but a few.

Richard Durand continued to deliver big tracks in 2008, adding his magic touch to Fragma ‘Toca’s Miracle’ and stepping up to rework Armin van Buuren ‘In And Out Of Love’ to equally devastating effect. At the same time, Richard’s solo productions were also hitting the headlines; his ‘Weep’ track featuring Skin from Skunk Anansie on vocals was signed to Perfecto and proved to be one of the summer’s biggest anthems.
