Dan Ascherl exploded on to the UK Trance circuit as a rising talent mid
Starting off on some smaller London parties at first… it wasn’t long
before you started to notice that something very special was about to happen
when witnessing a DJ with such pure mixing ability complete with the total
dedication to his art.
In the latter part of 2005 that something special started to take place when
Dan Ascherls’ management finally locked down his first booking with The
Honeyclub on the line up with Adam Sheridan (Goodgreef), on the renowned
saturdays Sevensins Night!
That night was to be the start of many for Dan with The Honeyclub announcing
Dan Ascherl as their new Trance – Sevensins Resident a prestigious title, as
he consistantly played out some of the best driving trance sets with
euphoric reactions from the homecrowd impressed by his talent &
proffessionalism which was to great to be ignored.
2005 came to a hughely sucessfull climax when Dan Ascherl was given his
first invitation to play on the world acclaimed night “The Gallery”
alongside Armin Van Burren & hosted by The Honeyclub in Dececember of that
2006 brought more sucess not only being awarded another residency of The
Gallery @ The Honeyclub which is a tri monthly event BUT an invitation from
Gavyn Mytchel to play The Gallery @ Turnmills alongside Paul Oakenfold & Seb
Fontaine…following in June with a return trip, on the line up for the
second time with Armin Van Burren, Mike Koglin and more…Dan Ascherl was
now making his mark on the London circuit with rave reviews.
Throughout 2006 he firmly established himself as one of the UK’s leading
trance DJs, continuing to play out with the likes of AVB, Ferry Corsten,
Eddie Halliwell, Marco V, Judge Jules, John Askew to name but a few and
making his debut on renowned nights such as the Gallery and Passion @ The
Emporium and smaller established Trance parties such as Electronic Sessions.
2007 Dan Ascherl set some new targets in his continuing career.. to make his
mark on the global trance scene..the first booking took him to Poland in
March of this year.. which was a fantastic experience and one that will
hopefully be repeated in the near future with his management team firmly
establishing European relationships this year.
Festivals were another target met, with the forth coming psy trance
festival……. in July of this Year.
2007 now also realises another driving ambition for Dan which that has
always been there..to establish himself as a Producer and already Dan
Ascherls’ production skills are being utilized by Digital Blonde to remix
Audio Illusion..signed by Total Digital with a release date late June 07.
So its been a busy two years so far and an incredible journey for Mr Ascherl
along the way…
When recently Dan was asked – " How did you get into DJing in the first
place?" the answer:
When my mum brought me a fisher price turntable on my fourth birthday! BUT
she couldn’t understand why I asked for two!
So it all started from there many years ago… and well.. if you are about
in the Southern UK why not pay a visit to The Honeyclub sometime and join
Dan in one of those incredible journeys through Trance;0)
