Carlo Resoort (born 1 March 1973) is a Dutch DJ, remixer and producer. He is best known as the main act of 4 Strings.[1]

Music career[edit]

Resoort originally began working with Jan De Vos when they found a mutual interest in dance music. The two spent all of their free time in the recording studio, and later De Vos went on to become 'DJ 4 Strings' while Resoort headed '4 Strings'. All of his albums as 4 Strings have been released in the U.S. via Ultra Records.

Resoort had his first hit with "Day Time", and later released "Take Me Away (Into the Night)", his second hit. They had some success, having been in record charts in several European countries and also Canada and Australia. Success in the United States has been limited and they have only charted on the U.S., Dance Radio Airplay, Hot Dance Singles Sales, and Rhythmic Top 40 chart. The Ultra.Trance 2007 album went to number seven on the Top Electronic Albums chart. This album was compiled by DJ 4 Strings, but only one of the songs was by 4 Strings.

4 Strings currently consists of Resoort (who mostly creates the music) and De Vos (who mostly works on production and arrangement, and performs some songs) and various guest artists on vocals. In 2004, rumors surfaced of singer Vanessa van Hemert leaving the group, due to some newly released 4 Strings songs that did not feature her. Although Resoort originally denied the rumors, by the following year, van Hemert did leave the group. "Sunrise" was the last track van Hemert provided vocals for 4 Strings.

De Vos took up the name DJ 4 Strings and does all live performances.
