It’s true that hard work and dedication are the key to success, which young North-Eastern star Denney realised in 2012 when his first smash hit ‘Ultraviolet’ was signed by the infamous Hot Creations camp, leading to huge international success. He was fast named ‘Future Hero’ in Mixmag and the track held a strong position at Number 1 in the best selling vinyl chart on Juno and gained him support from heavy-weights Sasha, Damian Lazarus, Seth Troxler, MANDY, Pete Tong and many more.
Prior to this Denney had spent years playing at club nights around the North of England and working for the legendary Back to Basics in Leeds. With hours spent educating himself on music, networking and spending countless hours in the studio he soon began to reap the rewards of his hard work with releases on highly acclaimed labels such as VIVa Music, Saved Records, 2020 Vision and of course Hot Creations.
Denney’s undeniable talents as a DJ have lead him to play all over the world including Europe, Australia and America, with a highlight at the notorious DC10 in Ibiza for Jamie Jones’ Paradise. His style is unmistakable with a unique blend of house and techno with a distinct ability to create a special atmosphere. Playing alongside some of the world’s biggest names, Denney has shown a modest, unfaltering style – whether playing a warm up or main room set he always delivers.
2014 has been Denney’s biggest year yet. With things moving rapidly from strength to strength he now holds a residency at the club night Back to Basics, which is a huge honour and holds major importance for him. He’s also just been signed to NGE Agency, who look after artists such as Jamie Jones, Damian Lazarus and Art Department, with an intensive touring schedule including a debut at the legendary Fabric in London already in place for the rest of the year. VIVa boss Steve Lawler is also fully behind the young star signing him to VIVa Music Management, which is sure to open even more doors. His release schedule is also just as busy with releases and remixes coming up on Saved Records, VIVa Music, Hot Creations, Resonance Records, Sidetrak Records and a special anticipated collaboration with Miguel Campbell for his forthcoming album.
2015 is looking even bigger with a summer residency already confirmed for VIVa Warriors in Ibiza as well as tours being put in place for North and South America. It’s safe to say this talented northerner is only at the beginning of his career.
“Denney is an exciting new talent and his enthusiasm for the music industry is exhilarating. He is on the cutting edge of dance music right now, it’s lads like this that keep pushing the scene forward and keeping it alive. House music is better now than it ever was due to this kind of spirit. Let the future be his!”
