HeatBeat

Just four short years ago, a DJ/Producer duo named Heatbeat (Agustin Servente, Matias Faint) was born out of the ranks of Argentina. Their versatility spans to include both their newest tracks as well as mash-ups and bootlegs of current hits, which they concoct in their studio during extensive, pre-set preparation. Backed by long-standing experience with traditional instruments like the piano, guitar and drums, today, their resume of international acclaim and support is longer than most would care to read. One would only need to look in the proverbial record bins of the world’s top DJs to find their “big-room” tracks waiting for the next packed venue, like the hunter waiting to spring on his prey. DJs like Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Markus Schulz, and Ferry Corsten, among many others, are no strangers to playing Heatbeat’s tunes day in and day out.“[HeatBeat] bring together influences from various genres in the form of a very explosive cocktail mix.” During the Days of Latin America in Vladivostok Matias Faint will represent HeatBeat as headliner at the open air.
