Armand Van Helden
DJ, producer, and remixer Armand Van Helden hails from Boston, where he started his career spinning in clubs in the late 1980s. After Van Helden’s singles began charting in the early ‘90s, he remixed, among others, New Order, Faithless, and, most famously, Tori Amos (his version of her “Professional Widow” reached number one in the U.K.). Thereafter Van Helden rapidly became one of the industry’s top DJs and remixers, performing and producing prolifically, and specializing primarily in house music. His debut, OLD SCHOOL JUNKIES, appeared in 1996, followed by 2FUTURE4U, released on his own Armed Records label. The singles “U Don’t Know Me,” “Hear My Name,” and “My My My,” among others, charted in the U.K., Europe, and Australia. His other albums include 2000’s KILLING PURITANS and 2007’s GHETTOBLASTER.
