20 Year Old Swiss based Danny Ilic aka Danny Freakazoid is a name you will be hearing a lot more from over the next few months. His unique blend of driving rhythms, awesome grooves & pulsing electronic basslines have got everyone from Pete Tong, Lee Burridge, Nick Fanciulli, Tom Novy, Deep Dish & Sander Kleinenberg falling over themselves to get on the Freakazoid bandwagon. its not hard to see that this guy is gona go very far indeed!
It wasnt always like this though. Danny first got into house music through his brother, who would give him Subliminal Session cds to listen too, and take him to house parties. Danny was instantly hooked! Through sheer determination and hard work Danny has worked his way up, teaching himself (with the help of his brother Elvis Ilic aka Dj Elvis Benait & long time friend David Jimenez) how to produce, firstly on programs like Reason on the PC, and then progressing to Mac with programs like Logic. As his tracks began to sound better and better over time, he began to dj at local parties and clubs in Switzerland, thus learning what really makes a dancefloor move. Danny also gota a job at ?Supermarket? one of the best clubs in Zurich as the lighting engineer. It was here he got to see some of the worlds best djs rock the floor week in week out. It wasn?t until Mark Brown from Cr2 records heard his track ?Discount? (the lead track on ?The Freax EP?) that things really started to happen. Cr2 promptly signed up Danny for an EP. Remixes on CR2 soon followed on huge tracks like Bush II Bush ? The Piano Track (Music Week Club Chart number 1), Spencer Parker ? Open Your Eyes (Buzz Chart number 2) which were done alongside longtime friend David Jimenez & Superbass ? Go To Pieces. Around this time Danny also remixed Tim B ? ?Barcelona? on massive French label Cyber, and signed his second solo single to well respected house label Map-Dark! All were massive tracks in club land and helped raise Dannys profile immensely.
Not content though, Danny further raised the bar by completing his first solo album. The album was promptly snapped up by Cr2 records, and is set to be released in July on the Uk imprint! Dannys sound ranges from more dark peaktime electro through to more groovey/funked up house. His influences include Deep Dish, Tiefschwarz, Eric Morillo, Trentmoller, Eric Prydz & many more.
