Richard Durand is an artist who’s established himself in the top tier of trance for a decade now. Since first breaking into the scene with remixes for Tiësto and being tipped for the top by the man himself back in 2007, Richard has gone on to fulfil his potential.
In the ten years that followed his breakthrough year, Richard Durand has hit the Top 100 of the DJ Magazine annual DJs poll on no less than five separate occasions, he’s released three critically acclaimed artist albums (‘Always The Sun’, ‘Wide Awake’ and ‘vs The World’), mixed six editions of the legendary ‘In Search Of Sunrise’ series of compilations and performed on many of the world’s biggest stages including legendary brands such as Trance Energy, A State Of Trance, Dreamstate, Sensation, Mayday, Godskitchen Global Gathering, Avalon, Zouk and Ministry Of Sound.
In 2015 Richard launched his very own ‘Reloaded’ brand which was fuelled by his passion for the underground and hard-hitting sounds in trance. The mission statement for Reloaded was clear and simple: “Harder, Faster, Bigger, Bolder… Darker!” The Reloaded label has gone on to achieve
far reaching DJ and radio playlist support with tracks such as ‘Art Of Noise, ‘Insincere’, Richard’s rework of Tiësto ‘Traffic’ and recent solo single ‘Savage’ all hitting the upper echelons of the Beatport trance chart.
As we enter 2018 Richard looks set to raise the bar once again with the his eagerly anticipated fourth artist album ‘The Air We Breathe’ due on Black Hole Recordings in October. In the meantime there’s a heavy payload of new harder edged trance singles about to drop including ‘Pelican Rouge’ on Sean Tyas’ Degenerate label. ‘The Air I Breathe’ single on Mark Sherry’s Outburst label, plus an exciting collaboration with Marco V on Reloaded.
With so much Reloaded activity it’s clear that this is far more than just a re-brand for Richard Durand… it’s a musical revolution! “Harder, Faster, Bigger, Bolder… Darker!”
