Amsterdam-based Know V.A. have shown themselves as an innovative and versatile DJ/producer duo, who uniquely blend ecstatic elements from hard dance music with dark, brooding sound-design. On the latest release Strange Days, the sound-palette of early hardcore functions as a blueprint. Driven to create something new, the two producers strip down the hard dance music they know until only the core principles remain. Bending strict dance music rules has gained them an infamous reputation.
