Randy "Ran-D" Wieland (18 May 1981 in Zeeland) is a Dutch DJ and music producer.

Ran-D has been active in hardstyle music since 2006, when he released his first track "D-Pression" on Special Records. After his debut release, Ran-D moved on to release his music on the large Hardstyle Record Label A2 Records, which is a sub-label of Scantraxx Recordz. After releasing on A2 Records for seven years, in March 2015 and alongside Frequencerz, Adaro and B-Front, Ran-D founded the hardstyle record label Roughstate Music.

Ran-D has released a cover version of "Zombie" by The Cranberries,[1] "Living For The Moment," "Firestarter," "Nirvana," "Suicidal Superstar" with Phuture Noize, "Band Of Brothers," and "Hurricane,"[2] which was awarded 1st place[3] in the Q-dance Top 100 of 2018.

In collaboration with Adaro, Ran-D is also part of the Hardstyle live-act Gunz For Hire which was founded in 2011.[4] Gunz For Hire have released songs including "Bella Ciao,"[5] "Sorrow," "Bolivia," "Plata O Plomo," "No Mercy" and "Armed & Dangerous."

Ran-D has collaborated with other artists in hardstyle including Alpha2, Zatox, Zany, B-Front, Phuture Noize, Crypsis and Digital Punk. He performed at several hardstyle events, including Qlimax, Hard Bass, Defqon.1 Festival (in Australia, Netherlands and in Chile), Daydream Mexico, Decibel Outdoor Festival, Reverze, Q-BASE and The Qontinent. Furthermore, in January 2017, Ran-D was invited to host an X-Qlusive Event[6] in collaboration with Q-Dance. It was held in the AFAS Live in Amsterdam[7] (formerly known as the Heineken Music Hall).
