Despite only forming in 2011, VINAI are a duo very much setting the EDM world on fire right now. Setting their stall out early with a series of club-ready cuts such as the ubiquitous EDM hit “Raveology”, these Italian brothers have seen their stock soar over the past year thanks to a reciprocal relationship with the all-conquering Dutch label, Spinnin’.

Collaborations with the likes of DVBBS, R3hab and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike prove that they’re not afraid of mixing it alongside their big-name peers either. Watch out for their new track, the curiously named “Techno”, which is out now on Spinnin’ – naturally - and promises to showcase a side of the boys we’ve never witnessed before. Brothers gonna work it out, eh?
