Ivica Petak a.k.a. D-Fence was born in 1983 in Zagreb (Croatia), where he developted the skills he needed to become THE 1who controls the audience, dancefloor, mood and feelings of people who literally enjoy world of music. Growing up in Zagreb, D-Fence started mixing in 2002. , providing music at local parties.
After 5 years of listening and absorbing sounds of hc techno and few more styles, at the age of only 14 years (1998.) he went to his first party and he was fascinated by the atmosphere, people, but also by a new approach to the electronic music scene.
In the summer of the year 2002. he buys his first turntables and mixer, and after hard practise, perseverance and consistence he represents himself to Croatian audience with his live mix on Croatian Open Radio.By the end of that same year he started organizing a parties and then in January 2003. he started his serious clubbing in legendary Croatian clubs Sokol and Tvornica.
2003. he runs organization Connection, organizing a parties in several cities in Croatia, in the best nad largest electronic clubs.
As he developed his own style, you can say that in his dj career Ben Sims, Umek and Dave Clarke were his greatest influences and he builded his technique and style upon their mixes. His style could be described as funky/electro/tribal techno. Inspired by the beats of electro, techno and house, he mixes new funky sounds to tribal rhythms and creates his experience by working on the decks in some of the most famous nightclubs across Croatia and Belgium.As he played in almost all of Croatian clubs and in some out Croatia, he shared decks with almost every Croatian dj´z and foreign dj´z.By the end of 2009. Ivica starts to release tracks with his good friend Wyrus with alias "Wyrus and Ivica Petak".
In the future, we can expect that Ivica will climb up step by step and that every time when someone tryes to cast him a step backwards he will always go two steps forward.
His view on life he described with these words:
„ In our lives there are always two sides, dark and bright...Dark represents all of what we despise, all that we hate...and bright side leaves us to enjoy at any time that connects us with music and dance...
Dark side does not allow us to hope that we will dance together, smile together...together in one place. Bright side provides that hope becomes a reality...
Music will always have two sides...and we will pray in one place, smile in one place, dance in one place...
Pick your side and become one of us....“
