"Eclecticism was first recorded to have been practiced by a group of ancient Greek and Roman philosophers who attached themselves to no real system, but selected from existing philosophical beliefs those doctrines that seemed most reasonable to them. Out of my collected material I concstruct my own philosophy on the dancefloor. I don't like to categorise or put labels on music and artists. For me that's the same as putting a black kid and a white kid together and not allow them to play in the same room just because they look different... Just as humans, every piece of music can be different but they will always have similarities. I will always play what feels right for me and suits the venue or concept that particular night. May it be romanian minimal, jacking house, melodic techno or whatever you want to name it... In the end it's all dance music."
Fast forward to now and the young music obsessive has come good: having been offered a slot at a small but illustrious club in Antwerp, Belgium at the age of 21, Deltano impressed so much he was given a weekly residency and the rest, as they say is history. At the end of 2015 the man claimed the 18th spot in the well valued Red Bull Elektropedia Belgian DJ Top 100 and has played the likes of Extrema Outdoor Festival, Tomorrowland, Café D’Anvers and almost everywhere else in Belgium, whilst having also been booked to play in countries all over Europe.
According to the man himself, the sets he lays down “tend to have a slightly darker twist in them. I like to build up things really slowly, take everything to a higher level and really enjoy playing long sets because they allow me to tell a better story.”
Inspired throughout his life by a wide array of music from grunge to hip hop via Belgian house, it’s only natural that Deltano produces, too. His deep, part house, part techno, but basically genre-defiant productions come on labels like Be Chosen, Suara, Rawthentic, Memoria, Rockets & Ponies, Tzinah, Inmotion and many more. Those labels are a reflection of the versatility this man holds in him. Basically he creates what feels right for him, rather than following any trends of the day, both when producing and DJing. In truth, it’s always been this way; he has always needed an output for his creativity and music is the perfect fit. The aim of the man whether in a club or studio is an honest one: to convey the same experiences and feelings he himself gets from the music he makes, plays and unearths whenever he can....
