/// ABOUT DANNIC ///

Dannic, the prodigious DJ and producer from Breda in the Netherlands – the hometown of Tiësto and Hardwell - is one of the fiercest acts to emerge from the latest generation of Dutch artists, cementing himself as a go-to name that delivers within the world of big-room, grooving house. Bursting onto the scene with a DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll placing 4 years in a row as of 2016, it’s confirmed to tastemakers that Dannic is a driving force within the scene. Dannic’s long-running stance behind the radio airwaves including hisrecently-rebranded Fonk Radio venture, also demonstrates a producer that is well and truly tapped into the most vital and important industry trends that appeal to his everexpanding audience.

From his debut releases on world-class labels including Toolroom and a longstanding relationship with Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Dannic’s constant output of dance floor-ready bangers and groove-laden productions continues to excite across live shows globally, as well as productions that set alight the biggest mainstage sets. Seeing the Dannic sound grace the stages of Creamfields, Tomorrowland, Miami Music Week, plus many more alongside the launch of his own aforementioned, independent imprint - Fonk Recordings – Dannic has reflected his musical flair from every angle. From sourcing Demos, A&R’ing, design and production, the first release through Fonk Recordings (A collaboration between Dannic ehhimself and HIIO titled ‘Funky Time’) was supported by industry stars Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Fedde Le Grand and W&W, as a swathe of Top 10 releases signified it’s status, with the label still only in its early stages, Fonk Recordings also recently hosted a sold-out showcase party of label family and friends during the Amsterdam Dance Event in October. As over 350,000 music-lovers descended onto the city, all of these components proved the perfect catalyst to propel Dannic and the future of Fonk Recordings into its next exciting chapter.

After a slew of impressive dates across Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, China and Singapore, Dannic also returned to Tomorrowland, Ushuaïa Ibiza, threw down sets at the World’s Largest Club Germany’s World Club Dome and played numerous, extensive North American headline dates. Dannic also performed a career stand-out set during the final ‘I Am Hardwell: United We Are’ show at Germany’s Hockenheim, marking the first show that DJs had ever performed at the racing track – but taking his sound to his fans live is one thing, immersing them wherever they are in the world is another. Launching Dannicated at the start of 2017 as a sleek fan portal, Dannic is giving devotees unprecedented access to high-class video content, track streaming and the latest and greatest news in his world, an ongoing project that will be adapted to meet modern and current trends, whilst also staying ahead of the curve.

With his live performances gaining unmissable status, it is clear to see that his vast studio outputs appear just as prolific, making it undeniable that Dannic has moved beyond the tag of “one to watch”. As his unrelenting schedule is interspersed with huge dates across the globe, his high-quality audio weaponry only adds another string to his bow including anthems ‘Viper’, ‘Golden Hearts’, ‘Feel Your Love’, ‘Light The Sky’ and his latest big-hitter on Maxximize with ‘Noise’, that also shot to #1 on the Beatport Big Room Chart; all of these factors creating a flawless cocktail as Dannic looks forward to a bigger and better 2017.

Ready to champion Fonk Recordings and its talents no matter the artists’ experience or infancy, Dannic’s musical passion underpins his every move as a DJ for the people, weather this be his noteworthy peers passing praise or his millions of fans around the globe connecting both in the flesh and via a plethora of digital mediums, the scene waits with bated breath for the next move of this shining Breda producer…

/// INTERVIEW ///

1. Ćao Daan. Kada i kako si počeo da se baviš DJ-ingom i produkcijom? Ko je najviše uticao na tebe?

Ćao. Moja profesionalna karijera u DJ-ingu i produciranju počela je 2009. godine, iako sam već neko vreme radio kao DJ u Bredi, pronalazeći se u tome kakvu muziku želim da pravim i eksperimentišući sa stilovima pesama koje puštam, u čemu sam dobar itd.

2. Sada kada si jako uspešan, koji je sledeći korak u tvojoj karijeri? Koji su ti ciljevi u budućnosti?

Haha hvala vam. Poslednjih 18 meseci su bili uspešni za moju izdavačku kuću Fonk, jedan veoma produktivan period u kom smo uspeli da “zacementiramo“ našu poziciju na sceni, podržavali smo nove umetnike u čiji rad verujemo i radimo na još uzbudljivih projekata. Podrška mojih kolega Axwell&Ingrosso, Martin Garrix, Sander Van Doorn mi zaista znači mnogo! Kreiranje mog fan portala Dannicated je bilo nešto što sam želeo da uradim već duže vreme, da bi se povezao sa mojim fanovima na ličnom nivou, pa mi je drago što smo i to uspeli da pokrenemo u 2017. Uskoro mi sledi saradnja sa Fedde Le Grand-om koji je moj heroj i jedva čekam da tu traku podelim sa svima, to mi je lično ostvarenje i nešto što sam želeo da uradim u svojoj karijeri – već sam je isprobao u svojim setovima u Majamiju za “Music Week” prošle nedelje i publika je odlično reagovala!

3. Da li imaš neki savet za mlade producente koji žele da postanu kao ti?

Rekao bih, nemojte da pokušavate da budete kao neko drugi. Neka vas producenti i DJ-evi kojima se divite inspirišu, ali pravite sami svoj zvuk i pronađite pravac kojim želite da idete u budućnosti – i onda radite jako na tome!

4. Najveća inspiracija za svakog umetnika su emocije i svaka melodija priča drugačiju priču. Koja tvoja traka ti pada na pamet kad pomisliš na ovo i zašto?

Mnoge moje trake mi znače, svaka na različiti način, ali bih odabrao ‘Light The Sky’ koju sam uradio sa Airtom. On je fantastični holandski pevač, koji je napisao akorde i “topline” za traku. Kad sam je prvi put čuo, bila je baš ogoljena, akustična i svidelo mi se kako su reči bile pune emocija. Melodija i gruv su mi veoma bitni, pa čak i kada pravim traku koja je za žurke I ima taj party vajb, i dalje želim da osetim tu strast kao kada sam je čuo prvi put, samo sa Dannic twist-om.

5. Da li postoji neka traka koju toliko voliš da je ne preskačeš ni u jednom setu?

Justice vs Simian – ‘We Are Your Friends’ - klasika!

6. Tvoj prvi nastup na Serbia Wonderlandu je bio pre 2 godine. Da li si uživao i da li ti se dopada Beograd?

Serbia Wonderland je sjajan događaj i uzbuđen sam što se vraćam. Moj drugar Pessto, koji je izdao svoju traku “Masego” za moju izdavačku kuću Fonk, takođe pušta na Serbia Wonderlandu i sigurno ću poslušati nove talente na događaju ove godine.

/ / / FAN QUESTION / / /

Pitali smo tvoje fanove na Serbia Wonderland Festival Facebook stranici šta bi voleli da te pitaju i ovo je pitanje koje smo izabrali: Da li možeš da nam kažeš nešto o saradnji sa Fedde Le Grand-om? Kada će ta traka izaći?

Uskoro! Ne mogu da podelim nikakve detalje, jer smo u finalnoj fazi, ali verujte mi, vredna je čekanja – bilo je to fantastično iskustvo da uđem u studio sa nekim kome se toliko divim i koga mnogo poštujem u industriji.

7. Pessto, naš resident DJ, radi warm up pred tvoj nastup, 7. aprila na Serbia Wonderland-u. Koje je tvoje mišljenje o njemu?

Pessto je mladi, uzbudljivi producent sa puno potencijala, dosta eksperimentiše i ne pokušava da kopira ono što su ljudi pre njega radili. On je osvežavajući umetnik i biće super da se vidim sa njim, siguran sam da će podići publiku na noge!

8. Započeli smo ovaj razgovor sa laganim pitanjem, hajde da završimo u tom maniru. Šta uživaš da radiš u slobodno vreme?

Nemam mnogo slobodnog vremena, ali kada imam, volim da ga provodim sa voljenima, malo se relaksiram u studiju, eksperimentišem i trudim se da ostanem fit onoliko koliko mogu – nešto što je meni bitno kao DJ-u koji je stalno na turneji, da ne dozvolim da višak preovlada haha. Ali kada nisam na sceni, ja sam samo normalan dečko iz Brede. ;)
