We all know Dannic! This amazing Duch Dj and Producer that was in DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll placing 4 years in a row as of 2016, and released so many huge tracks like ‘Viper’, ‘Golden Hearts’, ‘Feel Your Love’, ‘Light The Sky’ and right after ‘Noise’, that also shot to #1 on the Beatport Big Room Chart...
He gave us an exclusive interview before his set at Unite With Tomorrowland Taiwan talking about his new record deal with Spinnin' Records, his career and don't forget to check out his new track called "Tenderlove"!
Let's start talking about your song with Polina Griffith"Falling In Love", Can you tell us something about this song and how did this collaboration started?
As you know I just signed with Spinnin for several releases, so back in the days I was a huge fan of Polina's Disco House Tracks, so I just send her a few things, then we were like "Oh Man! We have the right sound for the track" . So we actually took the original vocal and made something totally new. More like Ibiza vibes, I wanted to make a club track but with good vibes! And She loved it, she said "Yeah! Let's do it!". But I've never met her, that's the crazy part, the whole idea I made during the 4 days I was in China, in a hotel room. And I'm happy because it's what I really like to play when I'm partying myself, it's the Ibiza style.
We want to know about your new record deal with Spinnin! Are you excited?
Spinnin for me is the world's biggest dance label for sure, and I still can release whatever I want to release or review and I can still release on my own record label. But the more vocal driven tracks are going to be released on Spinnin because they have such a big network and I want my music to be played in my own way, on my own fun.
To a different audience?
Not only club music anymore. I'm still the label boss, I still do everything, I just say "Ok, this is a release, please put it online".
Are you excited to be here in Taipei to headline Tomorrowland Unite?
I'm super excited because last year I was booked here as well but then the Typhoon (Big Storm) came in and I actually traveled 12 hours before I notice that so it was pretty hard. And now we're back here and I'm really happy because it was so hot today but without a doubt, people went really really hard. I've never expected so much energy !! I did a great job and the atmosphere was really, really good!
Here you are really popular, so how does it felt like to be one of the most expected Dj's on stage today?
If you say so... I'm just really happy to be here and I'm really happy to play a lot of new tracks and the Old School Dannic's tracks with the progressive sound. It's a dream come true.
If you could just pick 5 songs, which ones are the "Must Play" in your set?
Right now, my collaboration with Hardwell, then the new Progressive House track that i've made. The "Fallin In Love" ones, because actually with all the heavy tracks is the perfect in-between part with the relaxing stuff and good vibes.
And I really love "Power" by Hardwell and KSHMR. I also love this new track of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Nicky Romero, is groovy and with a lot of energy. I and love how that it's coming back, a lot of EDM from 2013/2014 is coming back now. Finally, people are not trying to do the new Chainsmokers's music anymore and they're just going back to their roots.
Please leave a message for your fans in Asia!
I'm always overwhelmed by how many fans are here in Asia for me and they are so dedicated as well, so they know every song and I really can't wait to show them my new music especially what I said before the "old school Dannic's Sound" with the progressive melodies and the big room sound. I've just worked really hard to make everyone happy!
