Russian-born and London-based DJ, producer and head of Alien Technology Recordings, Rebel Frequency has years of experience behind his back, playing all sorts of hard dance music from slower bpm trance and techno to relentless hard techno and hard nrg to crowds of 150 to 5000. He has firmly stamped himself on UK scene with a string of releases on such labels as Toolbox, Insomniacz, Nitrox, Fever, Stereodays and, of course, his own Alien Technology. His style is unique – hard, fast and pounding, but always uplifting and guaranteed to move any dancefloor!
While being regarded for many years as a force within the hard dance scene with his Rebel Frequency project, when it comes to slower bpm Dan is also on point – as his Rhythm Design joint collaboration with Anton Vishniakov (Rise And Fall, Bonzai Progressive, Particles, Perfecto) has received constant support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha and John Digweed himself.
DJ-wise Dan has appeared on the stage at numerous events with gigs stretching to Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Europe and most recently Central America. He performed alongside many respected DJs and producers including Tomcraft (Germany), Marcus Schossow (Sweden), The Panacea (Germany), DJ Promo [Third Movement, Netherlands], Electric Indigo (Austria), Fanu (Finland), Mark Maitland (UK), Osmo [Scythe Squadron, PL], Fracus [Hardcore Underground], Art Of Fighters [Traxtorm], Android [Apex / Cluster] to name just a few, showcasing himself as a versatile DJ capable of working in a wide variety of styles at the highest level.
