Introducing: Swanky Tunes

Hailing from Russia, Swanky Tunes is an electronic collective made up of Dmitry Burykin, Stanislav Zaytsev and Vadim Bagdasaryan. Formed in 1998, Swanky Tunes started experimenting with different electronic styles to create their own sound. In the beginning they played techno sounds mixed with vintage synthesizers and after that the group created a distinctly big-beat influenced sound. Nowadays their music is a mix of techno tunes, electro-80’s and contemporary progressive house. In 2006 and 2007 Swanky Tunes were nominated as ‘Best Musical Group’ at the Russian Dance Music Awards.

Swanky Tunes’ tracks and remixes have been released on some of the biggest labels around the globe, including Axtone, Mixmash, Spinnin’ Records, Refune, Size Records and Cr2 Records. Their releases have been heavily supported by: Tiësto, David Guetta, Sander van Doorn, Swedish House Mafia, Laidback Luke and Dirty South.

Swanky Tunes recently collaborated with Tiësto on the track, “Make Some Noise ft. Ben McInerney of New Navy”. They’ve also just finished a release with Kaskade “No One Knows Who We Are” which will be out soon. Other exciting news is the launch of their brand new label, “SHOWLAND”, with the release of there first track “Blood Rush” 3rd of September 2012 on beatport preview here, also an upcoming track with Hard Rock Sofa, Matisse & Sadko.

It’s as clear as daylight you need to keep your eyes and ears open for this genius threesome from Russia.

Swanky Tunes will be represented by Anna Agency Worldwide exclusively (except Canada, North/South America and Russia).

Tijdschema Dance Valley bekendgemaakt

Na de eerdere bekendmaking van de line-up presenteert Dance Valley nu haar volledige timetable voor editie op zaterdag 4 augustus. Een reeks ijzersterke namen die zorgen voor een onvergetelijke editie van de moeder der Nederlandse festivals. Naast een goedgevulde Main Stage met artiesten die de vallei aan het stomen krijgen, hosten Full on Ferry, Chateau Techno, HouseQuake, Digital Soundboy, Latin Lovers, Harstyle.com, Herr Zimmerman, Wasteland, HQ en Taped de andere area’s en podia. Om het aanbod dit jaar écht compleet te maken, is er deze editie ook ruimte gemaakt voor een aparte Eclectic area en een Hardcore stage.

Naast Afrojack brengt het festival nog een van ’s werelds meest gewilde Nederlandse DJ’s; Laidback Luke op de Main Stage! De man die zichzelf de meest geboekte Nederlandse DJ in het buitenland mag noemen, heeft al twee jaar op geen enkel Nederlands festival gespeeld. Dance Valley vindt het daarom een eer om de Laidback Luke te mogen verwelkomen in de vallei. Met Laidback Luke is de line-up voor de Main stage compleet en mogen de voetjes van de vloer op de aanstekelijke beats van niemand minder dan: Axwell, Afrojack, Above & Beyond, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez, Goose Live, Thomas Gold, The Subs Live, Gregor Salto, Funkerman en Zawdi MC.
