"There's no better feeling than sharing a dance floor whether it's on festival or club ground with friends as well as strangers who share the same admiration of music as you do"
Daniel Dejman returns, showing consistent progression and a four-on-the-floor approach to creating propellant Techno. With several concrete releases from his discography, Daniel Dejman is already cultivating a lasting impression on a global audience, leaving nothing in his wake. He now he presents the remix to Gregor Tresher of the song 'A Thousand Nights'. We take the opportunity to interview you about his remix and about his next projects.
Hi Daniel, thank you for answering our questions. I'd like to start by asking you about your technical approach to creating music. What equipment/software do you normally use?
Hey what’s up, thank you for having me! Lately I’ve been working off my laptop which has Ableton along with a number of VST’s from Aturia & NI. Some of my go to VST’s would be the Maschine, the Simpler, Analog Lab, Arp 2600, CS-80, Jupiter 8, and the Modular.
Your remix "A Thousand Nights" by Gregor Tresher has a very good impact. What were you inspired by to create it? How do you turn your inspiration into the final product?
I’ve always admired the original as well the remix that was done by Dubfire! My inspiration came from the recent stuff that’s been getting put out from artists out of Copenhagen and more so that region.
It definitely wasn’t easy to remix a track like “A Thousand Nights” since it's a masterpiece of its own, but I felt that I wanted to incorporate my style of mixing and still keep the essence of the original still in the mix.
It did take a while to complete, but I am certainly happy with the final product, and more importantly that Gregor Tresher provided his seal of approval for the release as an unofficial remix!
I feel like the underground scene will continue to persist. Do you think we will be able to go back to "normal" events and festivals soon?
I hope that we get back to normal soon with events & festivals, and I feel that the world is on track to head in the right direction. There's no better feeling than sharing a dance floor whether it's on festival or club ground with friends as well as strangers who share the same admiration of music as you do.
How is your sound evolving? What artists and genres do you enjoy mixing right now?
My sound is always evolving, I feel that as an artist, discovering new sounds, and genres keeps you on your toes.
As far as genres, I like to always mix it up with Hard-House, Techno, Leftfield, and even a bit of Trance. There's so much good music being put out right, you can get lost when digging! Lol
My go to artist at the moment would be Truncate, MRD, Schacke, Matrixxman, User Friendly, ROJII, Rob Threezy, Bodyrock, Hadone, Hector Oaks, Stef Mendesis, FJAAK, and Maxx Rossi.
How do you feel that your music influences or impacts your listeners?
I hope and feel that the listeners enjoy my music just as much as I enjoyed creating it. At the end of the day, if what you create has an impact on at least one person, then I feel that it was a job well done!
What other projects are you working on right now?
I have an EP that is set to release in the coming months. Also have a collab project with fellow producers, ROJII and Bodyrock from Chicago. Last wrapping up a solo project which would be my fourth EP, and am planning to do a vinyl & digital release along with a collab with Chicago artist David Bozic for the artwork.
What makes you happy?
My pups Jagger & Parker, the beach, the sun, matcha, pizza, tacos, festival season, swimming, and most importantly friends & fam!
Do you have any final words of wisdom?
I’m a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason!
