It’s true that hard work and dedication are the key to success, which young North- Eastern star Denney realised 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 heavyweights 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 – the home for his out and out breakdown record ‘Low Frequency’ in 2010.
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 very 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.
Starting 2017 with a solid EP on Heidi’s Jackathon Jams label featuring collaborations with house music aficionado’s Derrick Carter and Roger Sanchez and an accompanying ‘Full Circle EP’ Tour across the UK and North and Central America in February & March, the year started off with a bang. Then came a track that has been a secret DJ weapon for several years and one of his biggest releases since ‘Low Frequency’. The month of June saw both Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune and Annie Mac crowning Denney’s new track ‘Hottest Record’ – his dancefloor rework of Mekon’s ‘What’s Going On’. With plenty of radio support and underground nods, the track was the runaway underground hit of the summer featuring in Ibiza Voice’s Top 5 tracks of the 2017 season. Huge EP’s on Green Velvet’s Relief (Top 10 on Beatport and #1 on tech house chart) as well as the genre bending Stranger Things EP on Crosstown Rebels followed and have rounded off his biggest year to date. This was only cemented by a slew of remixes for Disciples (clocking over a million views on YouTube within 3 weeks and a place of the coveted Annie Mac Presents 2017 compilation); Roger Sanchez; Ralph Lawson & Chase & Status – cleverly showing his continuing ability to balance the underground with more commercial success.
2018 already looks exciting with a debut Brazilian & Argentina tour in January, releases on Nic Fancuilli’s Saved Records & an EP on Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep in Sound. The future has never looked better for this Northern favourite.
