D-Nox (born 06 December 1975) is a German DJ/producer and 1 time DJ Awards winner whose career in electronic music spans well over 25 years. Everything started for him with the electronic scene in his hometown of Dusseldorf in the early 90ties, branding his mark in the music community by also being a part of the duo D-Nox & Beckers who are responsible for various club hits since 2004 and are still currently releasing 16 years later on prestigious labels such as Bedrock, Suara and Sudbeat to name a few, as well as through D-Nox’s own record label Sprout Music.
D-Nox has brought his sound all around the world with his international bookings as a DJ, keeping him constantly on the move with his travels every weekend, through Europe, down to Australia, across the Americas, and around Asia and Africa. D-Nox has an exceptionally outstanding career in Brazil where he has his biggest fan community.
D-Nox was born in East Germany, but his family escaped to the West of Germany before the wall went down in 1989. As a young boy, he fed his interest in music by recording music on cassette tapes, as there was no way to buy records in East Germany. It was only in the time that he and his family moved to the West, that he got access to all the music which he had been recording on tapes and this is when his real passion for collecting music was born. In the early 90ties he started to go out and meet people from the nightlife scene of his new hometown Du?sseldorf. Du?sseldorf has always played an important role in the underground music scene. Many important bands such as Kraftwerk come from Du?sseldorf.
With the first money that D-Nox made after he had left school, he was able to buy himself all of the important equipment needed to start the art of mixing vinyl records.
Around 1992 was the first time he got booked to play in a nightclub and by 1996 he became a professional DJ. These early years made D-Nox one of the most booked DJs in his region, with numerous gigs in his hometown and other cities near by. In 2001 he started to work as A&R for the record label Tatsu. This job taught him even more about the music scene and inspired him to start his own record label Sprout Music in 2003.
In 2007 the duo D-Nox & Beckers won the price for best selling progressive house artist in Beatport.com and in 2010 the duo won the DJ award for best progressive house artist.
D-Nox & Beckers have released 3 albums; in 2007 “Left Behind”, in 2009 “Big City Lights” and in 2011 “Distance”. Since 2004 the duo have released more than 40 EPs and made over 50 remixes. Today, D-Nox & Beckers still receive a lot of recognition and respect, and continue to play shows all around the world together. But due D-Nox’s change of location in 2016 when he moved to South America, he is now focusing again on his solo gigs, with current shows booked in 2018 in Germany, Holland, England, Turkey, Israel, Australia, Russia Poland, Sweden, Hungary, Brazil, Argentina and many more to follow.
Along with D-Nox’s change of location from Germany to South America, a new collaboration partnership in the studio was formed together with Victor Ruiz, one of the most demanded DJs of today. Together Victor and D-Nox produced ‘Arise’ which was released on Sudbeat Recordings in 2016, the label belonging to Hernan Cattaneo. This track became one of the most played tracks in current sets of DJ’s all around the world. They followed up this release, with a second best seller in 2017 on Sudbeat from Victor Ruiz and D-Nox, called ‘Pure’.
By now, D-Nox and/or D-Nox & Beckers have played many major festivals such as Rainbow Serpent, Ozora, Fusion, Tribe, Lighthouse to name a few and many important clubs around the world, such as Womb, the Bow, Dedge, Pacha, The Block, and so on, stoking up gigs in over 70 countries, this duo belongs to the most important underground dance music products from Germany.
