http://www.a3network.com Armand van Helden 'Mynt Miami'. Van Helden, At the age of 13, he bought a drum machine and started DJing two years later. He returned to Boston in 1988 but also moonlighted as a DJ in Boston clubs. He quit his legal-review job in 1991 to work as a remixer under the management of Neil Petricone and X-Mix. He took up a DJ residency at the Loft, a top Boston nightclub at the time. He released his first official single, a mix of Deep Creed's "Stay On My Mind" through Nervous Records. He released "Move It To the Left" (credited to Sultans of Swing) in 1992 on the Strictly Rhythm label, which became a moderate club hit and led to a string of singles released under several monikers for that label. His first track to make the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart was "Witch Doktor," which made the top 5 in 1994, and led to opportunities to remix acts such as New Order, Deep Forest, Jimmy Somerville, Deee-Lite, and Faithless. However, it was the "Professional Widow" remix that established him and became a dance hit around the world as well as a number-one hit in the UK. It led to work remixing the Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, and Puff Daddy, as well as Daft Punk and Sneaker Pimps, adding to his reputation as one of the world's top house-music musicians. In 2006, he re-released "My My My" featuring extra vocals from Tara Mcdonald, which reached number 12 on the UK Singles Chart. In 2007, Van Helden released his new album, Ghettoblaster, from which he released the singles "NYC Beat," which reached number 22 on the UK chart, and "I Want Your Soul," which reached number 19. In May 2009, Van Helden collaborated with UK rap artist Dizzee Rascal on a new single entitled 'Bonkers'. The single entered the UK Top 40 at number 1, where it stayed for two weeks.
