Albert Harvey (1986) and Kevin Ramos (1987), both grew up in the Netherlands. With their mutual passion for music a new friendship was born. Albert grew up with gospel, soul and folk music from his home country Surinam. For Kevin, music has always been a big part of his life, since his father is a well-known Latin artist and his mother a funky soul singer.
With their friendship as a solid base and their mutual interest in music, fashion and art, they decided to join forces. Albert and Kevin grew to be a strong duo with a cross-over sound between pop and electronic music, inspired by their heroes Daftpunk, N*E*R*D and Coldplay. From that moment on GLOWINTHEDARK was a fact! An identity which suits their creativity musically and performance wise, as they light up the crowd with their electrifying performances, visualizing themselves as the light and energy on stage.
As a strong pop/electronic duo they have entered the international dance scene, with an already impressive list of shows, such as the worldwide known Dirty Dutch events, the Miami Winter Music Conference, Mysteryland, Story Miami, Pacha Brazil, Ministry of Sound London and Tomorrowland. Their pop/electronic sound with influences from all around the globe, has also been doing well in Ibiza, the mecca of house music, where they are residents at the prestigious Blue Marlin Ibiza and performed at Pacha.
Their talent for producing was also noticed by DJ Chuckie, the force behind the world famous Dirty Dutch sound, which led to their collaboration on ‘Electro Dude’. It was however their collaboration with no one other than superstar David Guetta, which introduced them to an even bigger audience. They met Guetta during the Winter Music Conference in Miami and got in the studio together soon afterwards, where they finalized the smashing club banger, ‘Ain’t A Party’. The track has been released on Jack Back Records and is part of David Guetta’s compilation CD, F*** Me I’m Famous.
At the moment, they are working on their own fashion line. During their performances, they discovered the need for a fashionable, but practical way to organize their stuff and decided to design the ‘KEVIN ALBERT’ DJ bag. The line envisions their great sense for fashion. Recently, they have also co-produced the track ‘Makin Papers’ with Lupe Fiasco, a fusion of hip-hop and electronic music, which shows their diversity. In the near future there are more interesting events planned, such as a Brazilian tour in the run-up to the world soccer cup 2014, a producers seminar at the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), the Pacha world tour, more collaborations with international artists such as the hit-makers Stargate and Nicky Romero and the release of the huge online buzz ‘NRG’ with DJ Chuckie, just to name a few. So, when it comes to their creativity, do expect the unexpected!
Their potential to become one of the most promising pop/electronic duos is evidently visible through their energetic live performances. Considering their exceptional stage presence, successful collaborations and their ability to light up any crowd with their energy, one thing is certain…
