DARUDE – Live in Auckland

See Darude live in Auckland for the first time since pre-covid times. One night only, with local masters Sam Hill & General Lee. 18+.
To date Darude remains one of dance music’s most influential stars. At the age of 24 and at the height of the trance boom of the early 00’s Finnish DJ / artist / producer Ville Virtanen created the milestone single ‘Sandstorm’ under his pseudonym Darude. The track went on to become one of the biggest selling dance singles in the history of electronic dance music with global sales of over 10 million units and to date featured on hundreds of compilations worldwide.
What started out as a national release in Darude’s native home of Finland went on to become a worldwide phenomenon taking ‘Sandstorm’ to #1 on the Finnish Dance Chart; a spot that it would dominate for 17 weeks. Released in June 2000 by Neo Records the track would see Darude became the first Finnish artist to reach the Top 3 positions on the UK singles chart. Following this, ’Sandstorm’ went on to go Platinum and became the ‘World’s best selling 12” vinyl’ of 2000. The track attained cult like status and gained strong support from industry heavyweights such as Radio 1’s Pete Tong, Tiësto and Paul van Dyk, as well receiving phenomenal radio support from national stations in over 70 countries. Still swelling in sales today ‘Sandstorm’ achieved Gold status in digital sales in the US in 2010 and Platinum in the UK in 2015, and re-entered the UK Top 40 Dance Chart in 2011, whilst finding new supporters in the likes of Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Zane Lowe, Diplo and Laidback Luke.

SLUMBERJACK (Aus) | Auckland

Hitting Auckland as part of their DICHOTOMY Album Tour ?
A dichotomy contrasts two entirely different things. It can be a clash, an unexpected pairing, a merging of divergent worlds ?
On their debut album, titled DICHOTOMY, SLUMBERJACK deliver their own dichotomy: a juxtaposition of sound, styles and concept. Across DICHOTOMY’s 12 tracks, Perth duo Morgan Then and Fletcher Ehlers glide from pop to bass music, marrying stadium rock with strange synths, cinematic crescendos and world music samples. ??
It’s a hybrid of sounds you wouldn’t expect to hear together but that come together to form something supernaturally beautiful. ?
Exploring both their club-ready roots and more melodic leanings, DICHOTOMY is a journey that traverses both where SLUMBERJACK started and how they have evolved. ??
An album had always been part of the plan for SLUMBERJACK, but until recently, the pair’s busy tour schedule had forced it onto the backburner. Since 2014, Morgan and Fletcher have been in-demand names in the world of bass music. They have collected multiple Gold records, toured across three continents, played the world’s biggest festivals, racked up over 150 million streams and collaborated with artists like Alison Wonderland, What So Not, Daniel Johns and Vera Blue. ?
Their 2017 Fracture EP ranked #1 on the iTunes Australia electronic chart and featured two ARIA Gold-certified tracks, ‘Afraid, Unafraid’ and ‘Fracture’. Along the way, the pair have earned a reputation as two of the sharpest, most forward-thinking minds in electronic music.
