In today's EDM scene, a DJ is defined by his sound & creativity. "Ravers" or "Clubheads" today can actually distinguish the difference between a "good" set or just a DJ that throws tracks around with no meaning... This said, after studying music theory for 7 years and playing different musical instruments such as; guitar, alto saxophone, drums & keyboards just to name a few, Oren D has not only mastered the art of constructing sets from the ground up but delivering unique & banging ones each & every single time.
What ignited the up & coming DJ to start mixing? It all started when he was in high school and started making monthly mix-tapes that his friends were eager to get their hands on time he'd come up with a new one. After high school he moved to Florida where he fell in love with House music. So much that he would spend night & day digging for all the tracks that he could get his hands on, studying the difference in musical variation of each style and most importantly understand the impact each & every song could have on the dance floor if played at the right time. 5 years down the line, Oren D wanted to take it to the next step and got himself a weekly residency at one of the newest & hottest local clubs at the time (2008) Oxygen in Panama City Beach, Florida. Every Tuesday for 6 months locals and tourists from all over the Panhandle of Florida would come & enjoy his set and always left them craving for more...
Coming back to Montreal in 2009, Oren D finally had the chance to prove himself in front of a real "audience", the after-hour scene! Playing along-side one of his idols, Jerome Isma-Ae and leaving the crowd breathless is how he earned his residency in one of the world's best rated clubs (#60 in Top 100 Clubs by Dj Mag) Circus Afterhours. After only a year being a resident Oren D has shared decks with world renowned DJ's such as; Gareth Emery, Marco V, Mark Knight, Leon Bolier, Ashley Wallbridge, Blake Jarell, Claudia Cazacu and Super8 & Tab. Played at the biggest electronic music festival in Canada; the Ibiza Festival at Beach Club, Pointe Calumet and has the honor or ending & bringing in the new year at Circus Afterhours (2011) sharing the decks with international & local DJ's; W&W, Ummet Ozcan, Adam K & M.O.S.. All these achievements are the results of years of dedication and self discipline.
Oren D's sets are composed from different EDM genres such as; Progressive, Tech House, Techno, House, etc, because his philosophy is quite simple... "when you understand the music, and you know how to put it together, it doesn't matter what style you play as long as you don't loose your flow & your crowd"... Moving souls & rocking dance floors are the true satisfactions behind Oren D's love for this beautiful art of mixing.
January 2011 is when Oren D will be launching his new Podcast worldwide with a huge 1 hour guest mix from Daniel Portman and local DJ's Offset. A 3 hour special launch that is sure to make some noise!
