Armand van Helden (born February 16, 1970) is an American DJ and producer of house music from Boston, Massachusetts. He was one of the main proponents of the genre speed garage, remixing various artists such as Katy Perry, Daft Punk, Britney Spears, Enrique Iglesias, David Guetta, Sam Smith, Bloc Party, Janet Jackson, Juliet Roberts, KRS-One and Sneaker Pimps, among others with this musical style. He is closely linked to the electronic music scene of New York.
Van Helden often remixes and uses samples of funk, soul, R&B and hip hop. He also uses filters and dub progressions, as in NYC beat, dancehall and reggae samples.
His greatest successes have been the remix of the song "Professional Widow" by Tori Amos, "My My My" featuring Tara McDonald (containing a sample of "Comin' Apart" by Gary Wright), as well as "U Don't Know Me" (with a sample from Johnick "The Captain"), which is van Helden's own work and topped the UK Singles Chart. He also featured in "Bonkers" by UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, which also topped the UK charts.
