Dannic, the highly prodigious DJ and producer from Breda in the Netherlands – the hometown of Tiësto and Hardwell - is one of the hottest acts to have emerged from the new generation of Dutch artists breaking through in recent years. His phenomenal rise to #26 in the 2015 DJ Mag Top 100 DJ Poll, a 4 place rise after a sensational jump of 34 places in the 2014 poll to #30, following his #74 debut back in 2013 confirms to tastemakers that he is set to remain a driving force within the scene. Surging his way to the forefront of the booming electronic scene and making his mark not only on Revealed Recordings throughout his career but also blazing a trail with the launch of his own imprint FONK Recordings, Dannic has managed to cast off previous associations and step forward as a respected artist in his own right, repeatedly blowing away fans with a slew of sensational releases, collaborations and of course, titanic DJ shows.
Daan Romers (in real life) won the Dancetour DJ contest in 2009 and a slot playing his productions to an audience of 10,000 people. Having started out as a DJ 10 years ago Dannic earned his stripes the old fashioned way, playing bars and small clubs, honing his craft. As Dannic says “It's funny because a lot of people know me as a producer but I like to see myself as a DJ who started producing”. It was only when he wanted to set himself apart from other DJs that he began experimenting with production and creating mash-ups to add something special
Dannic has repeatedly demonstrated to colossal audiences, whilst on tour, his skills and tight technique as a DJ. His ability to read the crowd shone through proving he can mix it with the world’s best, as he delivered sets varying from peak time madness to low slung, sexy, funky grooves. With the pinnacle of the tour being a main stage set at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Dannic has undeniably joined the upper echelons of the dance music scene. This unrelenting schedule has been interspersed with dates across the globe and appearances at the summer’s hottest festivals including spell binding sets at Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, Dance Valley and TomorrowWorld.
As 2014 kicked off, Dannic returned to Revealed Recordings, where he released his first record just a few short years ago, to lay down his first release on the label since mid-2013, ‘Lion’, followed by heavy hitters including ‘Blueprint’ , his first vocal track ‘Dear Life’ and collab with Dyro ‘Radical’, cementing him as a firm fan favourite. Across his releases, Dannic had created art which forms the ideal synergy between himself and his fans, club focused and in bringing instant energy to any party. Followed up by huge tracks including the Ultra Miami-premiered ‘Survivors’ with Hardwell and new Sick Individuals collab ‘Feel Your Love’, fans and industry big-hitters alike are poised for what the FONK Recordings boss will bring to the table next.
