"Music is my life and absolute passion, growing up playing the piano at such a young age led to my love for Electronic Dance Music. It paved the way to understanding music theory and how to create/write music, which has become a useful tool now that I'm working hard/learning production. I have been influenced by many different artists and sounds growing up over the years….I started listening to Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Darude, Daft Punk, Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, Chemical Brothers, Skibadee, Shy Fx, and Dillanga in my early years, these artists were some of my biggest influences during that time. I just love the positive energy I feel from dance music, it just makes sense and sounds so right to me." DB/JB
Donny has a very unique way of taking the crowd & his beatz freakz on a magical journey during live sets. He pays great attention to detail and always focuses on being original, while creating those good vibes & living in the moment with the crowd/fans. His style consists of many genres such as; Deep House, Tech House, Minimal, Electro, Progressive, Melbourne, Trance, D&B, Jungle, and Trap. He has the versatility to play anything and loves all music. He says "Each genre provides a different vibe or feel and different songs within each can make you feel very different emotions. It's all about what makes you feel good in that moment. Always follow your heart, listen to what you want, and create the sound you want...Just be you!" DB/JB
Donny had a passion for music and was heavily influenced by his parents at a very young age, which led him to playing the piano, learning classical and studying music theory over the years. Music has been Donny's life from the moment he was born, while growing up he listened to absolutely everything, from his dad Peter's love for rock/blues with influences like Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Jim Hendrix, Clapton, Eurythmics, Etc. Also, with his mother Judy being able to play multiple instruments influenced his musical ability and talents. His love for deep vocals and especially girl vocals come from his mother and what she listened to over time. His sister Jessica being 9 years older introduced many different artists to Donny when he was growing up, some of these include Our Lady Peace, Matthew Good, and Red Hot Chili Peppers…to some electronic dance music producers such as Fat Boy Slim, Darude, Prodigy, and Chris Sheppard. All of which have positively impacted his life and his love for music today.
Donny has now started to create the building blocks for [Beatz Freakz Nation], while focusing his attention on producing his own original music. With upcoming weekly podcasts & live mixes, bootlegs/remix content, and the launch of his new website very soon, you can be expecting big things to come in the near future for Donny Beatz and his Beatz Freakz!
