Electronic dance virtuoso DJ D-wayne from Eindhoven (NL) posesses all the necessary skills a good modern DJ / producer nowadays needs to succeed. He is a musical genius and very astute. He is currently producing one monster hit after another and has made remixes for internationally renowned artists, including Enrique Iglesias. His charisma knows no bounds and his unique performance style means he can fill the best clubs and festivals all year round.
D-wayne achieved his first success aged 16, when his first production ‘Distance’ was released on Afrojack’s lable – Wall Recordings. The record quickly climbed the Beatport Top 100 charts. His potential to produce hits in the music industry did not go unnoticed for long and he produced his following records on lables such as Dim Mak – from producer Steve Aoki. In 2011, his track ‘Eponym’ was chosen as one of the most important tracks of the Miami Winter Music conference by the DMC World Buzz chart. Soon after that, he released a track on Dim Mak called Punkd, this has ensured him an international presence. Since then he has released tracks on leading lables such as Spinnin’ Records and Nervous Records (USA). After the Amsterdam Dance Event 2012, his track ‘Mirroar’ was nominated one of the most important tracks of the event. His work is supported by many top DJ’s, including Afrojack, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, R3hab and DJ Tiësto.
After he remixed R3hab’s number “The Bottle Song” for Afrojack’s lable, he was asked to remix the American top 10 hit ‘Finally Found You’, by Enrique Iglesias in the autumn (2012). His dance version of the pop song is incredibly popular and he is supported by prominent DJs. In addition to this, he made a remix for the track ‘One and Only’ by Cherry Cherry Boom Boom, a Martin Kierszenbaum production (MK produced Lady Gaga’s first album amongst other things), A&R is for the popular Interscope Records and also owner of Cherrytree Records.
DJ D-wayne can be found working at a club or a festival almost every weekend. His technical skills and brilliant feeling for the right mix of records, combined with his infectious smile, surprising fade ins and strong energy – an important feature of his style of music – mean he can make the crowds explode. He even won the national Big Break DJ Contest in 2009, an initiative of the former music channel TMF. He also performed at outdoor festivals as a young artist for many years. Last summer he was featured at eight big festivals, including ‘7th Sunday’, ‘Sunset Festival’ (BE), ‘Intents Festival’ and ‘Summer Festival’ (BE).
One thing is certain, D-wayne is not one for resting on his laurels! His latest record ‘Rewind’ was released on the 29th of October 2011, on the Woo Ha! Record label (BE). In addition, ‘Shatter’, created in collaboration with multi-award winning DJ’s Gabriel & Dresden was released on the 28th of January 2013. Other upcoming releases are on Protocol Recordings by Dutch star Nicky Romero, “Mirroar” on Cr2 Records. 2013 will also be the year in which D-wayne will have his third release named Quantum on well known international record label Dim Mak, founded by Steve Aoki.
