Hailing from the flatlands of Dordrecht, Southern Holland, Daniel Wanrooy has been influencing the playlists of some of the world’s top DJs for over 6 years. Both as one half of the hailed duos Progression & Odyssee and as a standalone artist, his evocative, imaginative music has successfully cross-bred virtually every subgenre of progressive, trance, techno and house.
EDM life for Daniel started in the early 90’s when he began messing around with electronic instruments. Experimenting with the first Tracker programs, he learned to make music by the well-traversed method of trial and error! Aged 24, he released his debut single in 2001 and started growing and expanding his career from that moment on. Launching his production career in earnest, it garnered plays from all the big names in the industry. In 2005 Daniel was spotted by Tiësto. In the last years, the superstar DJ used a total of 5 tracks of Daniel’s work on his mega-selling ‘In Search of Sunrise’ series. Daniel released ‘Different Day, Different Light’ under the Progression alias in ’07 on Black Hole. Marked up by MTV as “two hours of fascinating music”, it received a huge reception from press and DJs alike.
A wish to see his tracks working from the perspective of the DJ booth along with a desire to travel the globe prompted Daniel to take the DJing plunge in 2003. DJ dates have given him an invaluable POV, increasing his knowledge of how to make his music even more floor-effective. He toured around Europe with Tiësto, spun at the legendary Heineken Hall in Amsterdam & played to 15,000 strong crowds across the World. He now DJ’s regularly in the UK, as well as at dates right across the world, like Trance Energy, Technoparade Paris, HMH Amsterdam, FFWD Rotterdam, The Point Dublin, Brixton Academy London and at the Winter Music Conference Miami. Daniel Wanrooy is going stronger than ever, releases single after a single and he even delivered the 14th volume of the highly acclaimed mix compilation series ‘In Trance We Trust’!
