VINAI, hailing from Italy, is becoming a rapidly growing name in the United States. The duo is composed of two striking young men that are not related but just so happen to share the same last name – Alessandro and Andrea Vinai. VINAI became an official group in 2011, but both had been EDM producers in Italy well before then.
Once the two talented artists came together, it wasn’t long before they were receiving support from big names like Tiësto, MAKJ, Deorro and many more. The track that initially garnered attention was “Hands Up” in 2013. A remix of “Starlight” by Don Diablo had the likes of Sander van Doorn looking their way. Not bad for having only been around for a couple of years, huh? Check out this festival trap remix of “Hands Up”!

2014 has been a HUGE year of growth for VINAI. Just a few weeks ago, they officially signed on with Spinnin’ Records, one of the biggest EDM recording labels. Spinnin’ is home to over forty other independent labels, such as Tiësto’s Musical Freedom. After joining the label, they paired up with Canadian duo DVBBS and launched “Raveology” – this remarkable track immediately made its way to the coveted #1 spot on Beatport, and it even appeared on the elite Billboard Charts. “Raveology” had the support of major headliners like David Guetta and Hardwell and has been played on festival mainstages worldwide. Take a quick listen, and you’ll understand why:
This wasn’t the last time VINAI would steal the #1 spot on Beatport. Recently they teamed up with TJR and made the now massive track, “Bounce Generation”. This song quickly climbed up the charts of Beatport, and stayed #1 on Beatport for weeks. #Bounce was all over Ultra Music Festival; it even showed up during the sets of Dillon Francis and W&W!
With such overwhelming support from major players in the EDM scene, I’m sure it won’t be long until they are playing alongside these superstars. VINAI is bursting with unique talent and sound, and will continue to do so throughout the year.
