World famous DJ Darude is going to be at Global House tonight. Global House is the biggest house weekly in Orlando hosted by Jimmy Joslin & B. Random every Tuesday night at Tabu.
“Sandstorm” was a smash hit in Finland, topping the Finnish Single Chart, selling platinum and holding the #1 spot on the Finnish Dance Chart for seventeen consecutive weeks. Word quickly spread about the track, which found global success. After becoming the #3 single in the United Kingdom (becoming the first record by a Finnish artist to do so), “Sandstorm” eventually sold 2 million units worldwide, and was the world’s biggest selling 12-inch record in 2000.
Shortly thereafter, Darude released his debut album, Before the Storm, selling 800,000 copies worldwide, topping the Finnish album charts, and earning him three Finnish Grammy awards. Before the Storm was produced by JS16, and features two of his remixes.
Darude’s second single, “Feel the Beat,” closely followed the success of Sandstorm, reaching #5 on the UK Singles chart.
