Damien J. Carter (DE)
Like no other, this guy knows to draw the bow from stamping progressive anthems to banging tribal beats, to rocking electro tunes and, yes, sometimes, block-rockin evergreens from the Clash or Prodigy. Damien started DJing at the age of 14 - first he was into Hip Hop, then he turned to House Music, but always, as he mentions, he played vinyl with a soul. After building up a loyal fan-crowd in local clubs, big business took notice him. The result of his first Hit Single Holding On (Credence UK) was simply amazing and led to bookings to all major events like Miami, Ibiza, Nature One Festival and the Loveparade. Since then, music stars like Eddie Amador, Jonathan Ulysses, Gary Barlow, Harry Choo Choo Romero, Silicone Soul, RnB Diva Mya and UK..1 artist Daniel Bedingfield all have been asking for a studio session with Damien - even Hollywood ordered one of his demanded remixes (Scary Movie). To think that Damiens success is surprising is certainly not right. Whoever has seen him live on stage which can only be recommended- recognizes that this guy definitely knows what he’s doing. Where other DJs just seem to be bored of doing their work, Damien spins up to four records at the same time, lets the vinyls turn forward and backward, with the needle on top or on the bottom (it..s true!) even David Morales had to look at twice to believe his eyes! Currently he dj's at the best known clubs, the biggest events, open airs & festivals, including the Comet Music Award (Germany), where pop stars like Ronan Keating and Ashanti danced to Damien’s thrilling 4-hours live-set. Sometimes Damien is taking his fervor a little bit too far. On 2004..s hardfought MTV DJ Battle he broke his finger during his thrilling live show and received his prize in the hospital afterwards..
