“It’s hard enough to find true purveyors of quality, underground progressive house and techno - let alone find them in the US. Thankfully, there’s Darin Epsilon. Darin’s talent is impossible to miss once you’ve heard it, as evidenced by everything from his set list selection to his taste-making skills when signing genre-bending tracks to Perspectives Digital” - DJ Mag
Internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, radio host, and label owner Darin Epsilon is often referred to as a pioneer of Progressive House and Melodic House & Techno. His Perspectives radio show and podcast reaches tens of thousands of listeners every month. He launched his Perspectives Digital record label in November 2010 as an extension of the brand, further solidifying his influence and presence within the global dance community. In 2016 he was nominated for ‘Best Progressive House Artist’ in the annual Beatport Awards, and in 2011, John Digweed named him one of the winners in his DJ Competition sponsored by Bedrock and Ableton Live. He also became the first artist ever to release a tutorial for producing Progressive House after teaming up with SonicAcademy.com

As a gifted student of music from an early age, former record shop employee, and former director of a college radio station, Darin draws inspiration from his nearly encyclopedic knowledge and genuine appreciation of electronic music.
