Second Sun has become one of the biggest live dance acts in the world. The Montreal-born Antoine and Adam were first discovered by superstar DJ Paul Van Dyk when he was handed a copy of their first track “Empire” at legendary club Twilo in New York. Not only did the German DJ sign them to his label Vandit, but also collaborated with the duo on the single “Crush” from his “Reflections” album. The chart topping single became a trance anthem, the album earned a Grammy nomination and after more hugely popular singles with Vandit, Second Sun’s reputation as a quality dance act was already proven.


It was in 2006 that Second Sun started making waves in the house scene. After their remix of Queen’s “Another one Bites the Dust” became one of the biggest tracks of 2006’s winter music conference, the remix requests came poring in from artists like Sander Kleinenberg & The Shapeshifters and labels like Ministry of Sound, Toolroom, and Ultra Records. Another important remix was for Sharam’s massive hit “Party all the Time”, which also featured Antoine’s vocals.

That’s just on the production tip. Second Sun is also a live act that can destroy any club or festival stage. They do it every weekend playing shows all over North & South American and Europe. And having played festivals like Global Gathering (UK), Ultra Music Festival (US), the South American Music Conference (Argentina & Ecuador), the Summer Dance Festival (Colombia), HMF (Brazil) and Bal en Blanc (Canada), Antoine and Adam thrive in front of giant crowds that have reached the 20 000 mark. They've also rocked the world's leading clubs in New York, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Chicago, Sao Paulo and countless others. Even less obvious countries like El Salvador and Latvia have been graced with the Second Sun sound.

“We’re trying to bring a certain element of showmanship back to dance music. We’re not Djs, we’re live musical performers. Since we come from a rock band backround, we’ve always wanted to bring a rock-show like feel to dance music” says the classically-trained frontman Antoine.

2008 will be another memorable year for Second Sun, with the release of their new album and many more surprises.
