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.

Top 100 DJs is back for 2017! The World's biggest music poll, which this year is in aid of UNICEF.
In 2016, Martin Garrix, the 20-year-old Dutch superstar, was voted the youngest ever No.1 DJ, and took the coveted top spot from 2015 winners, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
Voting is open NOW and runs until until Wednesday 13th September at 11.59pm BST.
Oliver Heldens is the latest Dutch wunderkind DJ/producer to go global. Charting at No.8 in the latest Top 100 DJs poll, the future house star has been going from strength to strength on his own terms since his breakthrough hit 'Gecko' was first picked up by Tiësto a few years ago. Broadening out his main stage sound and even dropping some techno these days, Heldens has solidified his place in the new wave of clean-cut, pop-leaning Netherlands talent changing the face of mainstream rave culture.
Martin Garrix’s new single, ‘Scared To Be Lonely Featuring Dua Lipa’, will drop next Friday 27th January, the DJ/producer has revealed.
The Top 100 DJs winner spilled the news via an interview on Dutch radio station Q Music NL yesterday — you can listen to the interview via Instagram below.
The follow-up to future bass anthem ‘In The Name Of Love’, which saw him perform on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge with Bebe Rexha, Garrix has already been playing the new tune in his sets.
Martin Garrix sees in 2017 by looking back at his favourite tracks of last year in a special edition of his online radio show.
2016 proved to be quite the 12 months for the Dutchman (despite the chaos elsewhere), topped off with his crowning as the youngest winner ever of the Top 100 DJs poll at the Amsterdam Dance Event.
Garrix's mix features 19 tracks from throughout the year, including many of his own productions and collaborations, such as 'Oops', 'Spotless' with Jay Hardway and 'Make Up Your Mind' with Florian Picasso.
