"I'm fortunate enough to travel the world, meet all kinds of great new people and can still just about balance this with a good private life with friends and family. What more do I need?" says Dutch trance sovereign Richard Durand, revealing the classic tales of a Top 100 DJ.
Press shots of Durand portray a serious man intent on lavishing the dance community with his positive energy and his warm, sunrise-kissed anthems. It's all true, of course, but in reality he smiles a lot more and his enthusiasm for the scene is infectious and therapeutic.

This year, he took on the Black Hole Recordings 'In Search Of Sunrise' compilation series - a massive project handed down to him by his mentor, Tiësto. The pressure to live up to the great man's bounty has paid off and a world tour took him to new territories.
"I've played at many beautiful locations across the USA and Canada, which has been a great experience."
He's currently working on his second artist album, penciled in for release in the early part of next year, plus of course the next 'Sunrise' installment and more touring. "There are still some countries that I could not get to this year, so I hope to catch up next year and get to some of those destinations," continues Richard.
