Behind the name 4 Strings are 2 musicians, Carlo Resoort and Jan de Vos. The two friends have known each other since 1986. In 1990 they became interested in dance music and from that moment on, they started producing & DJ-ing. All their spare time was spent in the studio. Throughout the next couple of years not only did their skills expand but also the amount of music equipment in their studio. With the new tools and experience that they had, Carlo and Jan could finally discover in which direction they wanted to go with their musical careers. Carlo decided to stay in the studio while Jan found his passion in mixing and started his DJ-ing career.
The Beginning After learning the basics of mixing, Jan joined a drive-in-show, where he played all kinds of music from R&B, Top 40 to Happy Hardcore. His skills were improving rapidly, and it was during this time period he noticed that his main interest was in dance music. After winning a first place prize in a DJ contest, he was offered his very own club residency. Carlo Resoort started producing dance music in 1994, and soon after that he had his first release. After a couple of releases he had his first major breakthrough: Carlos – The Silmarilla, produced together with Piet Bervoets (Rank 1). Two years later he had another hit with Turn it Around. Around this same time, a new record company was born, “Spinnin Records”. Shortly thereafter Carlo signed his first record deal and 4 Strings was born.
The Music Daytime was the first release of 4 Strings, supported by Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules and Tiësto. The follow up was Into the Night, which received even more recognition. After a vocal edit called Take Me Away the song became a huge hit
