In a short space of time, German DJ, producer, comedian, pilot and guitarist Dayne S has turned a lot of heads thanks to his unique take on electronic music. He started strumming guitar at a very young age and has never looked back from there, eventually falling in love with the disco scene in his hometown during his teenage years. From there the next step was to start DJing and now, in 2014, Dayne S is gathering more and more attraction by playing all over the world in countries like, Peru, Spain. UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Turkey, Russia and Germany.
“A lot of my inspiration regarding melodies comes from the good old blues legends like B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, but also from modern guitarist musicians like Steve Vai,” says the man himself. “I love to work out an idea on the guitar and then try to transform it into electronic music. I kinda use every input I get, no matter if it’s from big artists, pop music on the radio or just an interesting sound I hear on the street, so my influence, you could say, was life in general. I enjoy processing experiences into music.”
The music he makes for labels like Stil Vor Talent, OFF, Noir and Semester have topped charts at both Beatport and DecksRecords and range from slow and sultry to more kicking and peak time. Always imbued with a keen sense of electronic blues a la Depeche Mode or Tears For Fears, his music is stuffed with far more feeling than your average Ableton producer.
The future looks just as bright for Dayne, having had a No 1 Single in the Beatport's Genre Charts for more than 15 weeks, with a video shooting planned on Ibiza and he just got discovered by the Rolling Stone Magazin as an „artist you need to know for the future“.
His move to Berlin in early 2014 promises a whole bunch of fresh music on the world's top labels, more to come!
