Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

My name is Dannic, I’m a Dutch DJ and producer from Breda in the Netherlands and I make funky house and big-room!

Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tourdates, new videos?!

I release on Spinnin’ Records, one of the biggest international labels in dance music, and my latest single was ‘Tell Me (If You Really Love Me)’, a big funky track with a Steve Wonder sample, see if you can spot it! 😉 I also have my own label Fonk which I started to give something back to the young community coming through and provide a platform in what can be a hard-to-get-into industry. I will be playing at a lot of festivals this Summer including returning to Tomorrowland, Alfa Future, Creamfields Taiwan as well as a lot of solo and headlining dates!

Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

– My DJ/ Production name is a combination of my own name (Daan) and my Sisters (Nikki!)!
– I first started out DJ’ing in a small bar called Cafe Bruxelles in Breda over a decade ago
– My first ever “professional” show came after I won the Dance Tour competition in 2009 which took me to play my first international show
– My favourite artist in the whole world is Steve Wonder
– I listen to a whole range of genres when I’m not working but I also have a real passion for pop music; I always try to create some exclusive edits for my shows, especially across the Summer, that incorporate both classic anthems and fresh, pop tunes

4. What can we expect 2019 from you?

I have lots of new music coming very soon on a label I’m a huge fan of but I can’t say too much more right now. You can keep up to date with announcements on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram ☺

5.Do you have bad habits? A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit?

I’m pretty healthy overall so I don’t think I have too many vices!

6. Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I don’t have any party tricks – what should I try out? 😉

7. Being on stage feels like….!

Nothing else in the world, truly electric and addictive!
