Hailing from the North East of England, this fresh talent cut his teeth at the best of northern club nights, before spreading his wings - and his love for music and life - literally across the world.
2012 saw the house music brethren really take notice of Denney, as his track ‘Ultraviolet’ was chosen for the Hot Creations Paradise Summer Sampler. The track set dancefloors alight - it sat comfortably at Number 1 in the bestselling vinyl chart on Juno and gained DJ support from the likes of Sasha, Damian Lazarus, Seth Troxler, and MANDY. Such a tremendous effect led to Denney playing for Hot Creations at the infamous DC10 in Ibiza last summer.
But Ultraviolet certainly was not Denney’s first piece of epic craftsmanship. Previous releases have been featured on many respected labels, such as Saved Records, Great Stuff, 20:20 Vision, Leftroom and Bulletdodge. His track ‘Suckerpunch’ also featured on the VIVa Warriors Compilation in 2012, mixed by Steve Lawler and Darius Syrossian.
His tracks have also gained airplay from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Dubfire and Jamie Jones, and led to him being named a Mixmag “Future Hero” alongside Nic Fanciulli. BBC Radio 1 also gave him a 15 minute producer profile mix. All showing how hard work and perseverance has led to the success Denney deserves.
Ultraviolet showcased Denney’s unmistakeable, unique blend of house and techno, of which he has pioneered and crafted over the years. 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, the standard and love are always clear to see. His style is warm and honest, if a little warped at times!
2013 has seen no retreat from Denney. Releases have been thick and fast, on labels such as Hot Waves, Runnin’ Wild and Love Not Money. All have received high praise from his critics, fans and peers - peers who are inspired enough to work with him in the future; Saint Saviour, Miguel Campbell, Waifs & Strays, Mark Jenkyns and PBR Streetgang to name but a few. And there’s also word of an exciting collaboration with Mel Blatt.
This excitement also flows into his 2013 bookings. Already hitting up Berlin’s Salon-Zur wilden Renate, Denney recently played during the Miami Winter Music Conference and in Canada for the first time. Truly globetrotting - Burning Man beckons later in the year.
UK dates are too coming in thick and fast, including an appearance in the impressive lineup for the forward thinking We Are FSTVL.
And all of this alongside his recently announced his residency with lifelong love BacktoBasics, in Leeds, alongside Laura Jones - showing there’s no let up for this Northern powerhouse.
