The House Innovator - An Armand Van Helden MegaMix

Armand Van Helden (born 1970 in Boston, Massachusetts) is a record producer and remixer whose biggest commercial successes came from his remixes of the 1996 Tori Amos song "Professional Widow", which reached the top of the UK Singles Chart, and his own track "U Don't Know Me" which was Number 1 in the United Kingdom in January 1999.

Best known for combining different genres of music like funk, hip-hop, rock, electro and incorporating them into four-to-the-floor beats.

Van Helden released the Killing Puritans album in 2000 (also on Armed Records) which contained the dance hit, "Koochy". His single "Why Can't You Free Some Time" made the number 34 in the UK in 2001. His New York: A Mix Odyssey album released in 2004 produced two hits, "Hear My Name", a collaboration with Spalding Rockwell which reached number 7 on the Billboard dance chart, number 34 in the UK, and the top 40 in Australia; and "My My My", which reached number 4 on the world internet charts, number 5 in the Belgian and Dutch charts, number 6 in Australia, number 15 in the UK and top 30 in the world dance charts.
