Second Sun has become one of the biggest live dance acts in the world. The Montreal-born Antoine and Adam were first discovered by superstar DJ Paul Van Dyk when he was handed a copy of their first track “Empire” at legendary club Twilo in New York. Not only did the German DJ sign them to his label Vandit, but also collaborated with the duo on the single “Crush” from his “Reflections” album. The chart topping single became a trance anthem, the album earned a Grammy nomination and after more hugely popular singles with Vandit, Second Sun’s reputation as a quality dance act was already proven.
It was in 2006 that Second Sun started making waves in the house scene. After their remix of Queen’s “Another one Bites the Dust” became one of the biggest tracks of 2006’s Winter Music Conference, the remix requests came pouring in from artists like Sander Kleinenberg & The Shapeshifters and labels like Ministry of Sound, Toolroom, and Ultra Records. Another important remix was for Sharam’s massive hit “PARTY ALL THE TIME”, which also featured Antoine’s vocals. In 2008, even the rock world came in with remix requests, notably the internationnally renowned band 30 Seconds to Mars for their single «A Beautiful Lie» (Virgin/EMI).
That’s just on the production tip. Second Sun is also a live act that can destroy any club or festival stage. They do it every weekend playing shows all over North & South America and Europe. And having played festivals like Global Gathering (UK), Ultra Music Festival (US), Gatecrasher Summer Soundsystem (UK), Planet Love (Ireland), the South American Music Conference (Argentina & Ecuador), Nocturnal Wonderland (US), the Summer Dance Festival (Colombia), HMF (Brazil) and Bal en Blanc (Canada), Antoine and Adam thrive in front of giant crowds that have reached the 30 000 mark. They've also rocked the world's leading clubs in cities like New York, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Miami, Mexico City, Chicago, Sao Paulo and countless others. Even less obvious countries from El Salvador to Lithuania have been graced with the Second Sun sound.
“We’re trying to bring a certain element of showmanship back to dance music. We’re not Djs, we’re live musical performers. Since we come from a rock band backround, we’ve always wanted to bring a rock-show-like feel to dance music” says the classically-trained frontman Antoine.
New year - new music! The new single «Golden» just came out on Ultra Records and is sure to make waves. With it's latin guitar hook, partytime techno beat and even a rap in the radio edit, it's easy to hear how Second Sun blended all these musical influences that surround them in their home town of Miami to create this truly unique dancefloor destroyer!
