Aruna is not solely the pretty vocalist you hear on your favorite tracks-she’s penned a chart-topping single recorded by Miley Cyrus for the multi-platinum selling #1 Billboard Hannah Montana soundtrack, collaborated with some of dance music’s biggest names, and has added DJing to her arsenal of skills. Along with being a classically trained pianist and formerly sought after studio musician, it’s safe to say that Aruna is one of the industry’s most exciting and successful leading Ladies.
Aruna has recorded for a host of internationally recognized producers, including Cosmic Gate, ATB, Myon & Shane54, Filo & Peri, Ronski Speed and Roger Shah. Her debut solo single, ‘Let Go,’ was released on renowned UK imprint Anjunabeats’ Volume 8 compilation and cracked the iTunes Dance Top 200 singles chart at #150. But Aruna’s true breakout moment came in May 2012 when her track ‘Live Forever’ with Dutch superstar Ferry Corsten shot to #2 on the UK Upfront Top 40 Club chart. Dubbed the “anthem of the summer” by fans around the world, ‘Live Forever’ became one of the Top 50 most played tracks of 2012 on Sirius XM BPM and stayed at #1 on the Beatport Trance chart for nearly eight weeks straight, while the official music video racked up more than half a million YouTube views -- over 100,000 in the first two days alone. With no sign of slowing down, early 2013 saw the release of her debut collaboration with the #1 DJ in the world, Armin Van Buuren , ‘Wont Let You Go’, on his artist album Intense, which shot to #1 on iTunes in 20 countries the day of its release.
Aruna’s honest lyrics connecting repeatedly with fans around the world earned her the #5 position in Beatsmedia’s Top Vocalists poll for 2012. Her podcast, The Hot List, rocketed to #14 on the iTunes Top 200 Music Podcasts chart immediately following a much buzzed-about guest mix on Above & Beyond's Trance Around The World. On the show, she takes listeners on an hour-long journey through her personal favorites in progressive house and trance, often showcasing her own mashups and forthcoming releases.
The future is golden for this unique, mutlifaceted artist, who continues to raise the bar, break barriers and keep people guessing .
