Joey Daniel’s career can be summed up as nothing less than a well-deserved rise to fame. The Rotterdam born/Amsterdam-resident has been making waves through the Dutch dance scene for nearly a decade now. By now he has become a key figure in Dutch nightlife, a trusted provider of acclaimed sets, having played nearly every club and festival imaginable.
His early beginnings are known to many of his close friends and loyal fans:
putting his skill to the test at Rotterdam’s famous warehouse parties. Quickly gathering experience in Rotterdam’s nightlife, Daniel would later be adopted by one of Holland’s most forefront nightclubs, Toffler. At Toffler, he would later also become a resident, putting enough trust in Joey’s capabilities to grant him an all-nighter twice a year, and has been doing so for four years now. During these marathon sets - sometimes even lasting ten hours - in Rotterdam’s neon-laden dance temple, Joey would come to truly understand what it is that fuels him as a DJ and how he can take complete control of a crowd.
Toffler is also the main venue where his 300MPH parties take place; a
successful series of events still in existence today, aimed at bringing some of the finest craftsmen in house and techno to his hometown, curating nights directed at highlighting big names such as Loco Dice. Not before long, though, he decided it was time to set out for his conquest of Amsterdam, resulting in a more than welcome addition to the city’s sprawling nightlife roster: DSTRCT. The crowd in the Dutch capital immediately welcomed the warehouse-themed event with a near sold-out first edition. Aside from his Rotterdam adventures and his own parties, Joey is also recognised for his legendary performances at Awakenings, Time Warp Holland, Mysteryland, Welcome To The Future, Pollerwiesen Festival across the border with Germany, Extrema Outdoor in Belgium and a gig at the much acclaimed Elrow Barcelona.
