driving rhythms, awesome grooves & pulsing electronic basslines have got
everyone from Pete Tong, Lee Burridge, Nick Fanciulli, Tom Novy, Deep Dish
& Sander Kleinenberg falling over themselves to get on the Freakazoid
bandwagon. its not hard to see that this guy is gona go very far indeed!

It wasnt always like this though. Danny first got into house music through
his brother, who would give him Subliminal Session cds to listen too, and
take him to house parties. Danny was instantly hooked! Through sheer
determination and hard work Danny has worked his way up, teaching himself
(with the help of his brother Elvis Ilic aka Dj Elvis Benait & long time
friend David Jimenez) how to produce, firstly on programs like Reason on
the PC, and then progressing to Mac with programs like Logic. As his tracks
began to sound better and better over time, he began to dj at local parties
and clubs in Switzerland, thus learning what really makes a dancefloor
move. Danny also gota a job at 'Supermarket' one of the best clubs in
Zurich as the lighting engineer. It was here he got to see some of the
worlds best djs rock the floor week in week out. It wasn't until Mark Brown
from Cr2 records heard his track 'Discount' (the lead track on 'The Freax
EP') that things really started to happen. Cr2 promptly signed up Danny for
an EP. Remixes on CR2 soon followed on huge tracks like Bush II Bush - The
Piano Track (Music Week Club Chart number 1), Spencer Parker - Open Your
Eyes (Buzz Chart number 2) which were done alongside longtime friend David
Jimenez & Superbass - Go To Pieces. Around this time Danny also remixed Tim
B - 'Barcelona' on massive French label Cyber, and signed his second solo
single to well respected house label Map-Dark! All were massive tracks in
club land and helped raise Dannys profile immensely.

Not content though, Danny further raised the bar by completing his first
solo album. The album was promptly snapped up by Cr2 records, and is set to
be released in July on the Uk imprint! Dannys sound ranges from more dark
peaktime electro through to more groovey/funked up house. His influences
include Deep Dish, Tiefschwarz, Eric Morillo, Trentmoller, Eric Prydz &
many more.
