Few have blazed the trail of Russian dance music quite as comfortably as Hard Rock Sofa. From Smolensk to the high end of global club land, theirs is a 360-degree success story in making it within the modern industry. Alexander Shapovalov and Denis Chepikov now represent a peak in European dance talent – and they are only growing stronger with age.
On a consistent run on the global club and festival circuit, their sound has challenged national peers and global contenders alike to up-the-ante. When “Blow Up” achieved anthem status, the floodgates formally opened for their industrious leaps and bounds. Catering to the likes of Spinnin, Warner Music, Axtone, Protocol and Size Records alike, a who’s who discography of hard-hitting yet melodic anthems has made such career landmarks as “Here We Go”, “Quasar”, “Rasputin” and “Get Down” essential not only to their own careers, but the global dance community and its modern heyday.
‘Arms Around Me’ – their current single alongside Skidka, threatens the status quo with an unmistakable KC & Sunshine band sample, Hard Rock Sofa have looked back, to create something truly fresh for the summer Historically prolific on remixes duties, the duo have turned their hands to David Guetta, Alesso, Style Of Eye, Example & many more.
