After being donned “the world’s biggest upcoming DJ” by Hardwell, Dyro and his Revealed counterparts are letting fans in on their on-the-road fun with his latest music video. Providing videos for his recent hit “Leprechauns & Unicorns,” there comes a lack of mystical creatures and an abundance of footage featuring Hardwell, Dannic, and Dyro himself behind the scenes, showcasing the touring experience from an artist’s vantage point. The music coming from Revealed Recordings has proved some of the best of today’s progressive house, and they’re revealing their civilian side before summer dominance begins.Posted by
Still early in his career, Dannic has curated many of Revealed Recording’s most destructive dance floor weapons, the most recent bomb being “Clobber.” This week he retreats to Hardwell’s imprint with another original production to once again raise the bar for up-and-coming artists. “Viper” boasts a wide array of percussion, from rolling drums to snapping bass kick, all for the cause of a rhythm that is set to devastate the summer circuit. One time Stargazer, Dannic dives head first into the sea of progressive talent and finds himself waist-deep with the release of “Viper.”

Hardwell is making way for one of his rapidly rising understudies with the next release from Revealed Recordings. Dancing Astronaut’s own Stargazer selection, Dannic, is following his critically acclaimed “Clobber” with another drum-driven production. “Viper” embodies the Revealed trademark through infectious progression and is the next advancement in the evolving sound of the Dutch protégé. Slated for an April 15th release, anticipate “Viper” to outlive its expected spring dominance.Posted by
Dancing Astronaut favorite, Dannic, delivers yet another flawless remix, this time taking on Australian electro house-outfit, The Potbelleez, latest hit “Saved In A Bottle.” Dannic strips away the original’s run-of-the-mill electro house aesthetic and transforms the production into a festival-ready big room anthem, complete with anthemic choral sections and a merciless breakdown. The budding producer builds a sturdy frame of energetic synth stabs around the original chorus, twisting the pitch of Ilan Kidron’s vocals while creating a sound foundation with punchy progressive house undertones.

Primetime releases on such divergent and marquee labels as Revealed Recordings and Toolroom Records have left little doubt that Dannic is going places in the near future. Will 2013 be the year he ascends to the level of his decorated mentor? Check out our interview on point after the break. (more…)Posted by
Growingly popular Dutch producer and today’s honorary Axis DJ, Dannic, has dropped another remix to close out a month that saw his releases of “ Clobber” and “Strong.” His latest offering reveals another dimension to his repertoire of production tactics; he trades out the formulaic progressive line for wavy chord progression and a lengthier dub to boost anticipation around the seductive vocals. Of course, his big room flare commences upon the drop, bringing his latest tune full circle. Dannic shows us that he hasn’t quite yet pulled out all the stops, and while he’s already left a mark, there is more to come.

Dannic is a name that, by now, you’ve surely heard. Between his cleverly crafted mashups and high-energy productions, his success has come as no surprise. With his star only continuing to rise, we’re ecstatic to have him behind the decks for our 36th installment of Axis on Dancing Astronaut Radio.
Over the past year, Dannic has received support from dance music elite Tiesto and Hardwell, released tracks on Cr2, Revealed, and Toolroom Recordings, and remixed some of the years biggest tracks, including Nicky Romero and Nervo’s “Like Home,” and Arty, Nadia Ali, and BT’s “Must Be The Love.” This Dutch DJ/producer certainly proves that he’s a jack of all trades in his Dancing Astronaut debut, as every track in Episode 36 is either a Dannic mashup, bootleg, remix, or original. In fact, there’s even an exclusive “Axis Mashup” thrown in there too. Tracklist after the break.
As if Dannic hadn’t already mesmerized us last year with his back-to-back releases of electrifying tracks “Pipeline” and “Flare,” it looks like the Dutch DJ sensation is already gearing up to start the new year off right with the debut of his latest single, “Clobber.” Featuring an energizing bassline that is sure to keep club-goers on their feet into the early hours of the morning, this new solo endeavor from Dannic is literally infectious and sure to spread like wildfire throughout discotheques worldwide. With its intoxicating loop and high energy feel throughout, this progressive house track was an excellent breakout choice for Dannic to begin 2013 in style as he continues to show the masses exactly what he is capable of.

Hardwell‘s Revealed Recordings continues into 2013 with the release of Kid Massive & Alex Sayz’s thunderous original “Strong.” Featuring the ethereal vocals of Miella, the two producers tread delicately between big room chord progressions and adrenaline laced electronica. “Strong” builds slowly, coerced into submission by the gorgeous choral efforts of Miella. White noise hums amidst powerful kicks as the energy pushes upwards before reaching it’s peak, dropping abruptly into a cascade of stuttering electro chops and twisted synthesis.”Strong” marks another strong offering for Hardwell‘s imprint, which has seen a staggering array of genre-defining releases since its inception in 2010.
