Darude’s inexorable, monolithic EDM banger ‘Sandstorm’ is pretty accurately named given how it causes you to wince, shield your face and run in the opposite direction, but it’s all based on a lie - the Finnish DJ has never actually been in a sandstorm.

Darude, real name Ville Virtanen, was asked in a Reddit AMA today about his authority on the meteorological phenomena and whether he had experienced one during his 41 years of untz-untz-untz-making on Earth.

Wishing not to be seen as a fraud, he countered: “AND, I've got a picture from a few years back, when I was landing in Arizona I believe it was, where I literally landed like few minutes a sandstorm blew thru the airport area and you can see the edge on the pic. I tweeted something like "I've arrived" with the pic! :)” (sic).
