Craving are the latest duo to hit the Electronic Dance Music world. With their Deep and Progressive sounds with an uplifting melodic touch, Moscow-based Denis Fedotov and Ilya Karpov are carving their way into the playlists of the biggest and most influential artists in the world.

Their debut release was picked up by Black Hole Recordings, who saw the track “Never Alone” being released exclusively on the 8th edition of the “In Search Of Sunrise” mix compilations, made famous by the one and only Tiesto, and now in the capable hands of Richard Durand. Having made an impression on the fans of ISOS, Craving were chosen to be part of the 9th episode of ISOS with two tracks on the CDs.

Early in 2010, Craving sent some of their productions to First State’s “First State Music” record label, who were so impressed with the demos that they decided to sign the Russian duo on an exclusive basis.

With their two releases on “First State Deep” being supported by the world’s number 1, Armin Van Buuren, on the globally renown “A State of Trance” radio show, it was clear that the this talented duo had made their mark and are heading in the right direction.

Since then, a snowball effect ensued, with further support coming from A-list artists across the board, such as Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Gareth Emery, Ferry Corsten, Markus Schulz, Richard Durand, Myon & Shane 54, Rank 1, TyDi, First State, W&W, Aly & Fila, The Blizzard, The Thrillseekers, Tritonal, Daniel Kandi and many more.
