Featuring in the Top 100 DJs poll for the ninth year running, VINAI's return in this year's edition is a testament to their boundless creativity, relentless work ethic and passion for producing booming beats.
Offstage, the duo are known as Andrea and Alessandro Vinai — two brothers born in Brescia, northern Italy, who started DJing and producing in 2013. Almost a decade later, their enthusiasm is unwavering, with a stacked back catalogue to prove it. This year alone, VINAI collaborated with several artists such as Moonshine, Caden and Madism on the electro-pop tune 'Running To You’. They worked with Stefy De Cicco and Jessica Chertock on the bouncy, peak-time banger ‘Raindrops', and their DJ agenda amped up a notch too. High-octane shows across Europe, the Americas and Asia dominated their calendar, appeasing their staunch fanbase worldwide. Amassing over 634k followers on social media, their profile is only getting stronger. So what's next for the Italian siblings? It's heads-down-in-the-studio time, where they tell us they're trying to find the "next big VINAI signature sound”.
