DYEN

BIO

A breath of fresh air swept through the techno scene with the sudden emergence of DYEN in 2017, carving out a distinct niche for himself ever since. Starting his journey into production at a youthful age of 17, he swiftly secured a debut release two years later, marking the beginning of a promising career. Hailing from Rotterdam, the renowned rave hub of Holland, DYEN's upbringing undoubtedly left an indelible mark on his musical sensibilities. Influenced by the raw energy of old-school 90s gabber and primary hardcore, these early inspirations continue to shape his creative direction to this day.

"Growing up, I stumbled upon these incredible kicks, vocals, and super-catchy synth lines. I incorporate them, but with added powerful kicks and drops," DYEN reflects, a sentiment that resonates profoundly through his releases. With a keen ability to reinterpret the past into a hyper-modern, individualistic, and raw sound, he coined the terms "old school hard techno" to encapsulate his unique style. His tracks feature relentless punching kicks battling for space alongside aggressive, stabbing synths, forging a new and distinctive path on the dancefloor.

With over a dozen releases under his belt since his debut, including offerings from esteemed labels like RECKLESS, EXHALE, and Filth On Acid, DYEN firmly establishes his presence in the harder realm of techno. When commanding the mainstages of renowned festivals and clubs worldwide, he seamlessly weaves elements of rave and gabber with old hardcore and industrial records, teasing and captivating audiences with his eclectic selections. Starting from a  foundation and gradually escalating the energy, DYEN pushes both himself and the crowd to new heights, focusing on channeling a purer, exposed, and explosive energy.

Furthermore, DYEN's signature "DYEN Edits" have become a hallmark of his craft, where he sharpens his personal treasures and gems through his unique perspective, updating and modernizing them into fresh-sounding stomping weapons. With each performance and release, DYEN solidifies his position as a boundary-pushing artist, reshaping the landscape of modern techno with his relentless drive and innovative approach.
