Croatian-born and Danish-bred Denis Horvat. The young producer grew up in the suburbs listening to his father’s old vinyls, everything from Billy Idol to Depeche Mode. He discovered electronic music from his love of drumming and loads of hours watching MTV. A love of bands like The Prodigy, quickly led to him tinkering early on with a DOS-based sequencer. These were his first steps in the world of music production. At the same time DJ’ing was an interesting topic. His first DJ gig was at the local club – a test pilot for his new productions.
Today Denis is based in Copenhagen and a frequent player in some of the finest underground clubs in the city. Still focusing on his productions and gaining attention through a prestigious resume of labels.
2012 lead him into the arms of Tiefschwarz’s Souvenir Music. Introduced on their annually “In The City”compilation, followed up by “Montre EP” – collaborating with his Mexican colleague and vocalist “Quiroz”. This made a new standard for Denis, and his courage stepped up to the next level.
The impression of Steve Bug’s Audiomatique Recordings also came to sight. “Dali EP” took the crowd with storm, and showed the variety of Denis’s skills. Later on in 2013 he released his debut EP on Noir Music, “Dual EP”. This came out as a split EP with Oliver Schories, which was another huge topic on everybody’s lips.
2014 brought him a signing to no less than Get Physical’s “Full Body Workout”. Furthermore Noir picked up “Chaleo” for his new EP series “TRX”. This one rapidly made it to the Beatport Deep House Top 100, with the likes of Booka Shade, Hot Since 82, Karotte and Noir himself.
