Cutting his teeth on the influential and halcyon dancefloors of Godskitchen and Gatecrasher in the late 90s, the multi-award winning Hard Dance producer’s outputs began to flame in 2002 with Dark By Design fast becoming one of the most sought after DJs, Producers and Remixers on the scene. Nukleuz, Pulse (Germany), Goodgreef, Tranzlation, Tidy and many more played host to his unique take on the European Hard Trance sound, with him being one of the only Hard Dance DJs of that time playing his own material exclusively within his sets.
No stranger to the international circuit, Dark By Design has featured on the global and very enviable stages of Defqon1 Fesival, Dancevalley Festival, In Qontrol Festival, Qbase Festival, Ground Zero Festival, Coloursfest, Atomik Weekender, Parklife, Planet Love, Ministry Of Sound, Goodgreef, Hardhouse Academy, HTID, Infexious, Kiddfectious, Ministry Of Sound, Raverbaby, Slammin Vinyl, Tidy, Hindsight, Hard Trance Europe Weekender, Creamfields Festival and many many more along the way!
Dark by Design’s live energetic performances have also gained him a solid reputation in all corners of the world, with the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, Sweden, Holland all regular destinations for one of the biggest legacy producers and performers on the worldwide Hard scene. Collaborating and remixing for some of the biggest names in Hard Dance such as Lisa Lashes, Alex Kidd, Amber D, Anne Savage, Organ Donors, Phil York and many more, it’s safe to say that he has always been just as popular with his peers, as much as the clubbers out there on the floor.
Not many can lay claim to picking up ‘Best Remixer’ at the Hard Dance Awards 5 years consecutively, and such a wide legacy of achievements over two decades.
