Armand Van Helden Biography

Armand van Helden (born February 16, 1970) is an American DJ and producer of electro house music from Boston, Massachusetts. He was one of the main proponents of the genre speed garage, remixing various artists such as Katy Perry, Daft Punk, Britney Spears, David Guetta, Bloc Party, Janet Jackson, Juliet Roberts, KRS-One, and Sneaker Pimps among others with this musical style. He is closely linked to the electronic music scene of New York.

Van Helden often remixes and uses samples of funk, soul, rhythm, blues and rap. He also uses filters and dub progressions, as in NYC beat, dancehall and reggae samples.

His greatest successes have been the remix of the song "Professional Widow" by Tori Amos, "My My My" featuring Tara McDonald (containing a sample of "Comin Apart" by Gary Wright), as well as "U Don't Know Me," (with a sample from Carrie Lucas "Dance With You") which is van Helden's own work and topped the UK Singles Chart. He also featured in "Bonkers" by UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, which also topped the UK Charts.
