About HARD ROCK SOFA

Hard Rock Sofa are a Russian electronic dance music duo formed in Smolensk in 2005. Composed of Alexander Shapovalov and Denis Chepikov, they are currently signed to Axwell’s Axtone Records. Prior to 2012, they have collaborated closely with another Russian EDM trio, Swanky Tunes.

Hard Rock Sofa formed as a trio in 2005 between Alexander Shapovalov, Denis Chepikov, and Sergey Zuev (the latter left the band in late 2012). Their breakthrough success came in the form of their collaboration with St. Brothers for the single “Blow Up” on Axtone Records. “Blow Up” was accompanied with remixes by Axwell, Thomas Gold, Hook N Sling, and Goodwill. It peaked at number two in the Beatport Top 100 and was supported by all members of Swedish House Mafia. In 2011 they released “I Wanna Be Your Dog” alongside Swanky Tunes which sampled The Stooges’ well known 1969 Garage Rock song by the same title. Since 2011 they’ve released numerous singles and remixes, most notably on Size Records, Spinnin’ Records, Refune Records, and Protocol Recordings. In 2012 their remix of David Guetta’s track “Just One Last Time” peaked at number one in the Beatport Top 100 where it held the position for five days. In 2013 their track, with Swanky Tunes, “Here We Go” was featured in the action film, Fast & Furious 6. Additionally they have announced they are in the process of finishing their debut album, due to be released on Axtone Records.
