As the EDM industries’ bible 1001tracklists put it, Pete Dash’ music is both “suited for clubs and festivals, his careful attention to detail and strong passion shine through not only in his music but also live sets and radio show”. As such his well respected and recognised radio show ‘Back to Jack’s House’ has frequently been subject to much speculation and anticipation on the online forum’s rightfully earning him the title ‘future limelight of the Netherlands’. As Nicky Romero stated during a live airing of ‘Protocol Radio’, Pete “you’ll be sure to hear his name a lot this summer”. Talking in an interview about their release ‘Burning Sun’ which made it’s way to the dance floors at the Ministry of Sound in London and Bob Sinclair’s show at Mamboo Ibiza, Nico de Andrea mentioned he and Pete “share the same kind of profile, and he’s a lovely guy”. Having a word with We Rave You, Pete stated being an artist means you’re as much “in the crowd as in front of it”. Evident in his sets throughout, “being able to dance to music just as much as anything else” is key. As Viral BPM point out, his music is a “must-have for any groove, latin or house lover!”. Pete’s influence within the music industry has been both on- and off-screen, whilst also being involved as manager to several labels over recent years. However, given the explosive support with plays on Hardwell’s ‘Revealed Radio’ but als on Dutch Radio SLAM! FM, and moreover by Spotify’s iconic Austin Kramer adding his releases to key Spotify Playlists, Pete Dash has created an atmosphere where “fans are rolling his name of their tongue around the world”.
