History 1996, a magic year…Denniz started buying his first records. While he was clubbing he heard music he wanted to play at home. There was just one problem…the tracks he wanted to buy after hearing them in the clubs appeared only on vinyl. After buying his first records it didn’t take long before the first used turn-tables were bought, together with a mixer. Now he could mix his own music and a passion was born.
Denniz had a dream of a real DJ career, but no actual plans. The dream became reality in 1999 when the organisation Kriti Vibes asked him to play on a pre-festival party on a beach in Crete. Kriti Vibes were so enthusiastic about Denniz’ performance, that they offered him another gig at the main festival. During this main event he not only played the first hour, but without any experience Denniz played prime time. They asked him to take over the spinning table from his hero Erick E. In front of 8000 people and the rolling cameras of MTV. You can imagine that this experience gave him the vibe he needed to make his dream come true, a DJ career!
When he returned to Holland, Denniz realised that organising parties was a good way to promote his sound and skills. So he started a brand new concept named GrooveXpress in Nighttown Theatre. The specialty of this new concept lay in combining his music with live artists such as sax players, percussion players and vocalists. As a result, they offered him a resident DJ spot in Club Las Palmas. This club became winner of the best Dutch club award in 2003. To get a good impression of a regular clubnight at Club Las Palmas, watch the video by clicking on Productions and the Love flyer. Unfortunately the club had to close its doors in 2005. Meanwhile a lot of organisations want Denniz to play at their parties all over Holland. This resulted in gigs at Extrema Outdoor, FFWD Dance Parade and Sneakerz to name a few. At the end of 2006 Denniz was asked to play as resident DJ for all Hed Kandi events in the brand new Club Vie in Rotterdam. Nowadays Club Vie is the hotspot and the most succesfull club in the city.
Some of his most impressive experiences were the Must parties which are exclusive parties at impressive and special locations, for example a big church in Rotterdam. Another highlight is one of his latest gigs at new years eve 2006, when he played in Club Vie before Roger Sanchez who took over the spinning weels at 0.00. You can find a video of both gigs at the highlights item.

Crunc Agency is one of the upcoming new agencies in the Dutch scene. Because they give very succesfull own parties to promote their DJ’s and MC’s, this is an agency he loves to work for. This is the main reason why Denniz decided to join this agency. You can find more about Crunc agency and the other Crunc DJ’s at www.cruncagency.com
Denniz’s style can be best described as; soulful, sexy, groovy, uplifting and pumping real house music! During his sets he’s focused to give the people on the dancefloor a spectacular party! The kind of music he plays depend on location, theme of the party, the people who are present, and the time he has to play. So Denniz is a DJ who always have a good feel for the right party atmosphere. This is his strong quality which makes him very useful for every party organisation. Since the transition from turntables to Pioneer CD1000’s and the new DJM800 Pioneer mixer Denniz is able to give his sets even more energy by using lots of acapella’s and effects.
In 2002 Denniz produced his first record “Deep” with the very talented producer René Amesz who can be called a big name in the scene these days. This record entered the Dutch dance charts at the 12th position as hottest new release. In 2003 a cooperation with producer Fred Henderson resulted in his second production “Reachin” on the same label Star Traxx.
