Diablo

Diablo aka Daniel Englisch, born and raised in Amsterdam, comes from a very musical family. He was drawn from a young age to new musical styles and art in general.

It started in the early eighties with the introduction of electric boogie, break dance, hip hop, graffiti and making cut and paste mix tapes. In 1987 he got in touch with house music trough pirate Radio 100 and was sold for life. In 1990 he bought his first turntables, learned the fine arts of spinning from his soul mate Bas Wissink aka dj Wizz (Mazzo) and started playing house and techno records under the name Diablo.

He played at many clubs like club Mazzo, Paradiso, Time, Melkweg, Lichtfabriek, Fun Factory, Pand 14, Cue Bar, de Effenaar, Trance Buddha, festivals like New Frontier, Hellraiser, Dance Valley, Wooferland, on several radio stations (including Radio 100), in several other countries like France, Yugoslavia, Israel and the very first techno dj ever to perform in China (Chengdu).

He also followed a studio course at the National Audio Institute in 1990 (Haarlem) to gain some knowledge for his own music productions, but it was only until early '99 that he would bring this knowledge to serious use with Solid Fundamental, an electronic live act consisting of four friends.

While working in the famous Groove Connection Record store, he met Ziv Avriel from Israel who moved to Amsterdam at the time and Daniel offered him a spot in club Trance Buddha. Surprised by his skills and also great personality it did not take long for them to create their own techno organisation. They called it Underground Heaven, with a residency in club Mazzo & Time and one off parties at Hempoint (illegal ware house party), Hotel Arena, Lichtfabriek etc. They played alongside artists like Steve Rachmad, Thomas Schumacher, Kazu Kimura, Estroe, T-Quest, Misjah, Bart Skills, JP, Shinedoe and many more.

From beginning of 2009, Ziv Avriel and Diablo started their own techno label called Defuse Records, based in Amsterdam, which is still going strong today with many great local and international artists contributing their tracks and remixes. Styles range from deep melodic techno and tech house towards proper banging techno. Besides of the stronger techno endeavors, Daniel also created the label Cosmic Disco Records with dj Adjust from Eindhoven for the deeper shades of house music.

This ADE 2018 he will showcase a special Defuse Records ADE techno sampler with new tracks from several top artists on the Defuse Records roster, on Wednesday the 17th of October between 14:00 – 16:00 CET at the InDeepʼnʼDance record store.
