Doryan Hell

DJ Doryan Hell, alias Michel Held, was born in Basel (Switzerland) on 25 May 1987. It was through his father that he started to listen to SNAP music already at a young age and so he discovered Scooter, which sparked his interest for electronic music.

He moved on from electronic music to hip hop because he had come into contact with DJ Def Cut, who began DJ’ing at that time. Michel was allowed to watch him scratch and mix and he was fascinated by it. Even though Michel’s focus of attention lay now mainly with hip hop and breaksound, he never really stopped listening to electronic music.

11 years afterwards, when the hip hop scene had become too commercialised, Michel fully devoted himself to electronic music again. In 2004 he bought his first vinyl records because he wanted to become a DJ. At the time he didn’t realise what it meant to be DJ’ing. He quickly learnt how to mix. But he had no community, advertising or support.

It was through his long-time friend and present-day partner DJ DonDario that Michel got to know the sound label “Lost”. He was so enthusiastic about it that he started to promote the label attending every event. He gained a lot of experience through “Lost”, also with the help of different artists within the minimal techno scene. He had laid a solid foundation on which he started practicing.

Eventually, Michel did his first gig in the Hattrick Bar in Liestal in 2006. He continued developing new ways, improved his music and finally created his own style. On weekends he regularly performed his after-hour sets in the Bora Bora Bar in Liestal. It was that time when he gained his first big fans. Further gigs followed at various venues.

In 2012 many things happened. In January Michel announced his comeback and joined the label “Lost”. In March he did his first gig under his new name DJ Doryan Hell in the Borderline Club in Basel. The collaboration with DJ DonDario sped the whole thing up. Thanks to him, Michel found his way back to the music and he started producing. After he had joined “Spaceland Records” in September, he did his first gig in Italy. He released his first record (Irish EP) with “Spaceland Records” on 18 October. Michel engages people’s sympathy, he keeps contact with people and he is on his way to working together with international artists. He is now trying to make a name for himself abroad under the name of DJ Doryan Hell.

Dj Doryan Hell alias Michel Held wurde am 25.Mai 1987 in Basel geboren. Als kleiner Junge begann er durch seinen Vater SNAP zu hören und entdeckte auf diesem Weg Scooter und somit sein Interesse für die elektronische Musik.
Von der elektronischen Musik sprang er zu Hip Hop. Der Grund dafür war der Kontakt zu Dj Def Cut der zu dieser Zeit mit dem Dj-ing begann. Michel konnte ihm beim Scratchen und Mixen zuschauen und war davon fasziniert. Obwohl er sich jetzt hauptsächlich für Hip Hop und Breaksound interessierte, hörte er nie ganz damit auf elektronische Musik zu hören.
Nach 11 Jahren wurde ihm die Hip Hop Szene zu kommerziell und er widmete sich wieder ganz der elektronischen Musik. Im Jahr 2004 kaufte er seine ersten Vinylplatten um DJ zu werden. Damals wusste er jedoch noch nicht was das Dj-ing alles beinhaltete. Das Mixen lernte er aber sehr schnell. Was ihm noch fehlte waren Community, Werbung und Unterstützung.
Durch seinen langjährigen Freund und heutigem Partner Dj DonDario lernte Michel im Jahr 2005 das Soundlabel „The Lost“ kennen. Er war dermassen begeistert, dass er anfing für das Label zu promoten und jeden Event besuchte. Durch „The Lost“ konnte er viele Erfahrungen sammeln, unteranderem über die verschiedenen Interpreten der Minimal-Technoszene. Jetzt hatte er eine Basis und fing mit dem Üben an.
Schliesslich hatte er im Jahr 2006 seine ersten Gig in der Hattrick Bar in Liestal. Er entwickelte sich immer weiter, wurde besser und fand seinen eignen Style heraus. An den Weekends spielte er regelmässig seine Afterhour-Sets in der Bora Bora Bar in Liestal. Von dort an hatte er seine ersten Fans. Es folgten weitere Gigs in diversen Locations.
Im Jahr 2012 war viel los. Im Januar gab Michel sein Comeback bekannt und trat dem Label „The Lost“ bei. Im März hatte er mit seinem neuen Name Dj Doryan Hell den ersten Gig im Club Borderline in Basel. Durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Dj DonDario ging die Sache voran. Dank ihm fand Michel den Weg zurück zur Musik und fing an zu Produzieren. Nach dem Beitritt zu „Spaceland Records“ im September hatte er seine ersten Gig in Italien. Sein erster Release (Irish EP) auf „Spaceland Records“ hatte er am 18. Oktober. Mit dem Pflegen von Kontakten und Sympathie ist er auf dem Weg mit internationalen Artisten zusammen zu arbeiten. Als Dj Doryan Hell probiert er sich nun im Ausland einen Namen zu machen.
