Hard Rock Sofa

Real Name:
Denis Chepikov
Profile:
Few have blazed the trail of Russian dance music quite as comfortably as Hard Rock Sofa. From Smolensk to the high end of global club land, their fourteen-years on the beat have not only made for some serious musical landmarks, but a 360-degree success story in making it within the modern industry. While Alexander Shapovalov amicably left the group in 2015 in order to pursue his solo project ‘Shapov’, Denis Chepikov continues to produce music under the powerhouse name that is Hard Rock Sofa. With every release and dance floor that is shaken, Hard Rock Sofa makes it evident that it represents a peak in European dance talent – that will only further thrive under Denis’ innovative direction.
Between BBC Radio One, Sirius XM and a consistent run on the global club and festival circuit, the Hard Rock Sofa sound has challenged national peers and global contenders alike to up-the-ante. Case in hand, when “Blow Up” achieved anthem status, the floodgates formally opened for their industrious leaps and bounds. Catering to the likes of Spinnin, Warner Music, Universal Music, Axtone, Protocol and Size Records alike, a who’s who discography of hard-hitting yet melodic anthems has made such career landmarks as “Here We Go”, “Quasar”, “Rasputin” and "Get Down" essential not only to their own careers, but the global dance community and its modern heyday.
Historically prolific on remixes duties, Hard Rock Sofa has turned their hands to David Guetta, Alesso, Calvin Harris, Example, Style Of Eye & many more.
As one of the first acts of their generation to take their music to the silver screen, a spot on the soundtrack for “Fast & Furious 6” has not hurt their club-credentials, but has emphasized the many dimensions their sound can cater for. This may be age of universal club advocacy, but with Hard Rock Sofa comes a far bigger picture of the prospects now available to modern dance artists.
From EDC Chicago to Dance Valley and residencies in XS Las Vegas and Pacha Ibiza, the duo’s global presence blazed throughout 2013. Joining David Guetta for his ‘F*** Me, I’m Famous’ parties throughout the summer and racking serious air miles across North America and Asia, the duos live footsteps echoed that unstoppable force that has cemented them at the forefront of their craft.
The persistence, passion and versatility of Hard Rock Sofa’s global overhaul is sure to keep this accomplished producer in high esteem for years to come. From the North American club circuit and Beatport charts right through to the silver screen, Hard Rock Sofa is poised for domination across the industry spectrum.
