DJ Dano

In 1984 Dano started to DJ for several local pirated radio stations in
Amsterdam. Two years later he became a journalist for a newspaper for
young people, where he w
rote about music and going out. One night
he decided to visit the Roxy discotheque, Dano was very sceptical
about this whole new scene called dance. Four hours later, sweaty and
tired, he realised that he had be dancing non-stop. “After my
experience at the Roxy, I realised that I was sold and that electronic
music was my calling.” And on that night, Dano was incurably infected
by the ‘acid virus’. From then on he got his own show called ‘Acid
Explosion’ on a local radio station and soon after that became a
resident DJ at the Mazzo club.
In 1992 the dance scene exploded on a massive scale. During a
colossal house party in Utrecht, Dano performed with his colleagues
Buzz Fuzz, Gizmo and the Prophet. There and then marked the birth of
the legendary ‘Dreamteam’. This hardcore party was the beginning of
the immense hardcore scene and in a short period of time Leeflang
grew to be one of leading emperors of hardcore.
The following years are best described as a roller coaster ride at top
speed that took him to all the big national and international parties;
Hellraiser, Thunderdome, Mayday and Love Parade, just to name a few.
This man has travelled the whole world to play his music, but recalls
that the tour in Australia with the Dreamteam was without a doubt the
most memorable event in that time. “The stronger friendship that was
developed, the beautiful landscapes and the hysterical audiences; these
are things I will never forget.”
Not only has Dano been chosen four times in a row as best hardcore DJ
(which to this date no other hardcore DJ has been able to accomplish),
but is also renowned for his productions. Creating tracks for labels
such as Mokum, ID&T and Dreamteam Productions and IST, just to
name a few.. This man has also made quality remixes, such as ‘T-
1000’, taken from the heavy metal band Fear Factory. One of the most
impressive projects in his career has been his hardcore remix for “A
Wanna be a hippy” what only sold in Germany 250.000 copies and
resulted in a golden record.
The legend is still one of the world’s best hardcore DJs, even for the
second generation, maybe even the third…
