February 13, 1999 - Dylan Dazen live at Planet Rose in Doornroosje

 

A raw techno set by the American DJ Dylan Drazen, recorded at a Planet Rose party in Doornroosje (Nijmegen, Netherlands).

Deeply influenced as a child in the ’80s by pioneering electronic music artists Art of Noise and Tangerine Dream, Drazen began to experiment with creating music in high school by working on loops with MOD tracking software on his Amiga. Recording his favorite songs from New York radio onto cassette, he would work them onto his computer as 8-bit samples and sequence them, altering the pitch to make "megamixes."

These early efforts were the first signs of what would later become part of Drazen’s mission as a DJ and producer, his passionate desire "to expose the music I love and that I feel deserves more exposure to those who would not normally seek it out on their own."

In the summer of 1993, Drazen began to seriously pursue a career as a DJ. He opted for a technical education, graduating in 1997 from Emerson College in Boston with a degree in Audio Engineering. During this time Drazen worked extensively to perfect his innovative sound; but his main project was producing his own radio show, Underground 88. The program, which aired Saturday from 2 to 6 A.M., gave Drazen his introduction to performing and experience developing what would later become one of his trademarks: lengthy deep house mixes.
