In 2005 Alexander Shapovalov, Denis Chepikov and Sergey Zuev came together in Smolensk, their home town to form Hard Rock Sofa. It was a time in Russia when dance music was not as popular as it today. Sergey then left the group after a brief stint to pursue his dream of being the lead singer of a rock n’ roll band.
8 years, releases on 10 labels, 30 singles, 80 remixes and 100′s of shows later, the duo have established themselves as Russian house legends and have achieved global greatness
They are masterminds at creating unique hard hitting dance sounds and pulsating strong beats that boast big room vibes. With remarkable recent releases like ‘Quasar’, ‘Collapsar’ and ‘Rasputin’ and previous ones like ‘Feedback and ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, you understand one important characteristic about the duo – they’re consistent with their sounds, synths and style. They’ve been creating gritty house productions that have taken over the dance world by storm.
Their tracks and remixes are always supported and played by such titans of house music as: Tiesto, David Guettа, Pete Tong, Axwell, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Avicii, Kaskade, Bob Sinclar, Sander Van Doorn, Above & Beyond, Dirty South, Markus Schulz, Judge Jules, Roger Sanchez, & more.
