released in 1997 while Noreaga was serving another prison sentence.
Darude toured the world for nine months in 2001. The second single Feel the Beat followed in Sandstorm's success, becoming a #1 hit in Finland before becoming a worldwide smash. The song was the worldwide number one selling vinyl record in the year 2000, a record of sorts for a trance number. In June 2000 Darude became the first Finnish artist ever to reach top 3 position on UK's single chart.
The song first conquered the Finnish and other European charts before creeping onto the UK charts (via the Internet at first, getting airplay in discos and clubs before it was officially released to a waiting audience), and finally taking the world by storm. His first hit single Sandstorm, was a result of a collaboration with Finnish producer and artist JS16 or Jaakko Salovaara, the man behind successful artists like Bomfunk MC's and Dallas Superstars. Darude landed a deal with JS16's 16 Inch Records, and co produced the song with him. Hoping his tracks would be big hits someday, Darude started making his music on a PC first, and then moved on to samplers and decks. The name evolved to the Rude, da Rude, and finally Darude.
His friends started calling him Rude Boy after the track. At a party with some friends, he played Swedish artist Leila K's track Rudeboys several times in a row. His artist name Darude comes from the start of his career. Darude (Ville Virtanen) is a Finnish DJ.
