VINAI is an Italian EDM project consisting of two brothers, Alessandro and Andrea Vinai. After forming in 2011, they came to prominence in 2012 courtesy of a string of well-received remixes for the likes of LMFAO (for whom they put a new spin on ubiquitous chart-topper 'Sexy & I Know It') as well as the queen diva of pop, Nicki Minaj.

Further remixes followed for the likes of Steve Aoki, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and as you’d imagine from a roll-call like that, the guys are very much hot property when it comes to EDM.

Remixes aside, VINAI also possess the Midas touch when it comes to their originals. Tracks such as 'Bounce Generation' and 'Legend' are proof of the fact, but it was barnstorming appearances at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival that really set the guys on the course to greatness and cemented their place at EDM’s top table. So where do the guys conjure up all the “crazy energy” they bring to their sets and productions? It just comes from our “crazy minds”, says Alessandro. We don’t doubt that one bit.

Despite only forming in 2011, VINAI are a duo very much setting the EDM world on fire right now. Setting their stall out early with a series of club-ready cuts such as the ubiquitous EDM hit “Raveology”, these Italian brothers have seen their stock soar over the past year thanks to a reciprocal relationship with the all-conquering Dutch label, Spinnin’.

Collaborations with the likes of DVBBS, R3hab and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike prove that they’re not afraid of mixing it alongside their big-name peers either. Watch out for their new track, the curiously named “Techno”, which is out now on Spinnin’ – naturally - and promises to showcase a side of the boys we’ve never witnessed before. Brothers gonna work it out, eh?
