Armand van Helden – Funk Phenomena

Armand Van Helden is a house music artist and music remixer whose biggest commercial successes came from his remixes of the 1996 Tori Amos song “Professional Widow”, which reached the top of the UK singles chart, and his own track “You Don’t Know Me” which was Number 1 in the UK in January 1999.
Van Helden was born in Boston in 1970 to a Dutch-Indonesian father and a French-Lebanese mother, but travelled around the world as a child spending time in the Netherlands, Turkey and Italy, as his father was a member of the US Air Force. At the age of thirteen, he bought a drum machine and started DJing two years later.
