Without doubt the hottest new trance DJ / producer to emerge from Holland this past year is Richard Durand. Recommended by the mighty Tiësto as his 'Tip For The Top in 2007' in DJ Magazine a year ago, Richard has responded with a string of stunning productions and remixes in recent months, including official reworks of Tiësto's 'Lethal Industry', 'Flight 643' and 'Break My Fall', Armin van Buuren's 'In And Out Of Love' plus a DJ diary that has exploded due to demand from high profile shows and festival appearances, culminating in Richard Durand rising to 66 in the DJ Magazine Top 100 poll in 2008.

The Richard Durand sound is trance, techno and tough electro in a unique package that's both dynamic and devastating. Having made his mark as a solo producer with the big tech trance bombs 'Make Me Scream' and 'Slipping Away' on the Terminal 4 label, the 2007 follow-ups 'Sweap And Repeat' and 'Submerge' and remixes of Tiesto vs BT 'Break My Fall' and Fragma 'Toca's Miracle' found playlist support from the biggest DJ names on the planet including as Paul van Dyk, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and Eddie Halliwell to name but a few.

However, what really sets Richard Durand apart from other leading producers are his exclusive and massively in demand reworks of big dance tunes from right across the dance spectrum. Once given a Richard rework, tracks such as Prodigy 'Smack My Bitch Up', Audio Bully's 'The Things', Snow Patrol 'Chasing Cars' and Binary Finary '1998' are brought bang up to date in a storming tech trance fusion. It’s a winning formula that’s been setting dancefloors on fire and making Richard Durand a buzz name.

Not content with being one of the most in demand producers on the planet, Richard Durand is also one of the most technically accomplished DJs in dance music today. Utilising 4 x CD decks and effects units, his DJ sets are a whirlwind journey of cutting edge tunes, big samples, slick mixing and technical wizardry behind the decks. Add to the equation his undoubted ability to work a crowd into a frenzy and a clear passion about his music and the people in front of him on the dancefloor and you have all the right ingredients for a truly devastating DJ package and a legend in the making.

The proof of Richard Durand’s show-stopping sets and crowd pulling DJ status is confirmed by his DJ diary exploding. He’s performed at Dance Valley, Planet Love, Coloursfest, Revolution, RMI Trance Xplosion, Summer Of Love, Tunnel Electrocity and Dance Planet festivals around Europe, plus leading UK club brands such as Godskitchen, Gallery, Gatecrasher, Inside Out, Lush, Syndicate and Passion. Elsewhere around the globe he's rocked dancefloors from Melbourne to Mongolia and China to Canada this past year with the reactions from each new territory seemingly louder and more lively than the last!

Richard Durand’s rapidly rising status is confirmed by his recent charting up 25 places to 66 in the 2008 DJ Magazine Top 100, a coveted Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, the new single 'Weep' (feat. Skunk Anansie), remixes for Armin van Buuren 'In And Out Of Love' and Art Of Trance 'Madagascar', plus a standout summer residency at Judgement Sundays in Ibiza.
