Banging Techno sets 059 >> Doryan Hell // Dario Sorano
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.
