Collaboration is defined as two or more people working together to realize shared goals – it’s also the core principal of Bent Collective. Bent Collective is an engine for collaboration with a shared goal of fusing the talents of emerging DJs and producers to put their collective stamp on the over-ground of dance music. Bent Collective is comprised of two of Europe’s biggest talents, Danny Verde (Italy) and Steven Redant (Madrid).
In between the DJ gigs and globetrotting, Bent Collective have been stealing away time in the studio working on original productions set for release this summer. The guys have also collaborated on official Bent Collective remixes including A Great Big World’s “Say Something” featuring Christina Aguilera, the legendary anthem “Time After Time” by gay icon Cyndi Lauper, the new Avicii single “Addicted To You.” If that wasn’t enough, both Danny and Steven donated their time and talents to Melissa Etheridge’s new song “Uprising Of Love” which is the call-to-action anthem for www.uprisingoflove.org campaign, which raises money and awareness for the Russia Freedom Fund to help the LGBT people of Russia, a cause that Bent Collective supports.
2014 promises to be an even bigger year for both Danny and Steven as they continue their global domination with a demanding schedule of DJ gigs, original productions and remixes. OnApril 26th, Bent Collective will take the main stage for their U.S debut as the headline DJ team for this year’s 25th anniversary White Party in Palm Springs www.jeffreysanker.com. They promise a groundbreaking set that will feature live artists, live instruments and an evening of musical set to remember.
Electronic Dance Music has long benefitted from the art of collaboration. The members of Bent Collective are already successful in their own right within their respective lanes. Together they promise to ramp up collaborative fusion and move the goalposts forward, bringing new energy as the genre continues to dominate the music world.
The best is yet to come … It’s a BENT thing!
