Dannic on an exclusive interview with Out Now

Dannic, the prodigious DJ and producer from Breda in the Netherlands – the hometown of Tiësto and Hardwell – is a name synonymous with Dutch dance, cementing himself as a go-to name that delivers within the worlds of both a big-room signature sound, as well as a true-to-form exploration of the deeper, grooving house. Dannic burst onto the scene through the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll, placing 5 years in a row. This, along with Dannic’s standalone, high-quality productions, outstanding DJ-sets, and long withstanding fanbase, confirmed to tastemakers, the industry and beyond, that Dannic remains a driving force within the scene. Dannic’s long-running stance behind the radio airwaves including his globally-syndicated 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 ever-expanding audience.

Where are you from? My name is Dannic and I’m from Breda, Holland, a small town where also Tiesto and
Hardwell comes from! I now tour all around the world bringing my groovy Dannic sound to
clubs and festivals.


When did you start making music? I first started DJ’ing in a venue called Café Bruxelles when I was younger, it’s where I really started out and worked through my techniques, I learned more than I think I realized looking back, and the team there were really great, letting me have slots to play to audiences.

Then I entered the Dance Tour DJ competition in 2009 when I played to my first, big international crowd.

I started producing later when I realized the music I wanted to make.


How do you describe your music? Funky, exciting big-room with a groove that I like to make my staple, the “Dannic” sound
always has that groove to get people dancing! Although the music I make is dance,
electronic, I’m really inspired also by funk and Motown which I try to feed into my tracks.

Favorite moment from your career? 

My first time playing the Tomorrowland mainstage, I think! But also starting my own label Fonk Recordings was a big thing for me, it felt like a leap in my career, my own little branch I could look after and start to nurture new artists.


Who is your biggest musical inspiration? Stevie Wonder, I love and we actually sampled a track of his on my recent release ‘Tell Me (if you really love me)’, but I also have to say my buddy Hardwell, he’s a cut above the rest!


What is your producing software? I use Logic Pro X and Native Instruments

What other things do you do besides making music? Spend time with my family and work out in the gym, my family and loved ones are so important to me when I’m finally back home with having such a busy schedule

What is your favorite track of all time? Michael Jackson’s ‘Billy Jean’

What is your best-producing tip?  Trust your gut!

Why did you start making music?  It was and is a passion of mine, I love so many different styles, genres and being able to play music – and my own music – to fans around the world is crazy! I think I started as a creative
outlet, and the rest rolled on from there…

What are your upcoming gigs? ll, be heading to Croatia, Spain, Germany, Belgium and a whole lot more, for festivals and
headline dates! Keep up to date with me and new announcements at djdannic.com or follow me on social media -

What are your goals for the future? To continue to be the best man I can be for my family and my fans, and to keep making music! What more is there? :)


What advice can you give for the young music producers/DJs: Practice and work hard, no one else is going to do it for you!

Please write a message to your fans: Thank you for all your support over the years to everyone reading, I hope you enjoy the music!
