While famed for the global smash 'Sandstorm', Darude's long and successful career has seen him release five studio albums, earning a string of global awards and multi-platinum discs - a testament to his status as an international artist within the electronic music scene.
Regarded as "Finland's biggest musical export", Darude has performed at festivals and events worldwide, including Ministry of Sound, Exchange LA, Parookaville, Radio 1's One Big Weekend, Groove Cruise, Dreamstate SoCal, Weekend Festival Baltic, and Tomorrowland. His music has also led him to headline TwitchCon several times, represent Finland at Eurovision, perform at the opening ceremony of the 2023 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships, and at numerous eSports championships such as The International. In 2017, a special New Year's Eve countdown was set in Helsinki in front of 100,000 people, with Darude performing as part of the celebrations of 100 years of Finnish independence.
More recently, through an ambitious drive to nurture impactful new music, embrace new technologies, and support artists, Darude evolved the spirit of his weekly live-stream show Vibing Out into a broader creative hub by launching an audio and visual record label of the same name. Through this creative output also came Darude's fifth studio album to date – 'Together'. A 12-track long-player stacked with emotive rushes, rave energy and the raw power to soundtrack dancefloor memories already made and yet to come.
