ARMAND VAN HELDEN VS. BUTTER RUSH
"I NEED A PAIN KILLER"
Armand Van Helden, a name synonymous with house music. A true pioneer and a DJ/Producer who has consistently given us amazing music over the past 2 decades.
New York based Van Helden was born in Boston to a Dutch/Indonesian father and a French/Lebanese mother. He travelled around the world as a child spending time in Holland, Turkey & Italy. He bought a drum machine when he was still a teenager and started DJing two years later.
Armand spends many hours ‘digging in the crates’ looking for samples and hooks from old funk, soul, dancehall & hip-hop records to re-create and turn into modern gems. It’s fair to say he has been mighty successful at this.
With huge releases including, Witch Doktor, Flowerz, My My My, I Want Your Soul, Hear My Name, When The Lights Go Down, NYC Beat & The Funk Phenomena plus the chart topping classic ‘You Don’t Know Me’ and ‘Bonkers’ with Dizzee Rascal. Plus, huge remixes for the likes of Daft Punk, The Rolling Stones, Sam Smith & the genre-creating monster Tori Amos ‘Professional Widow’.
He has also found time to collaborate with DJ A-Trak on a side project ‘Duck Sauce’. Again reaching huge club, radio and chart success with; Barbra Streisand, Anyway & Big Bad Wolf.
Armand is back with a brand new single ‘I Need A Painkiller’. Yet another unique production from Armand that just grabs you instantly and set to be the soundtrack to many dancefloors.
