Hidden Agenda: Daniel Bortz (Suol, Germany)

  • Hidden Agenda Present: Daniel Bortz (SUOL, Germany) Sat August 10th, Button Factory Doors 11pm, Advance tickets 7eu Daniel Bortz is an artist we've been looking to bring toDublin for nearly a year now. Born and bread in Berlin, Daniel's been steadily putting out quality music since early 2008. The moment that saw Daniel rise to the top was with the release of his Draga EP in 2011 with the main track "Can't Sleep At Night" which made it into pretty much every respectable DJ's record box, and for a lot of people was easily the biggest track of 2011. It was this that also secured him a firm place in the Top 100 DJ's in the world, ranking him above artists such as Subb-An, Joy Orbison, Heidi, Kerri Chandler and Craig Richards to name a few. Bortz made his name releasing on acclaimed German labels Pastamusik and more recently Suol, and key EPs throughout 2011 & 2012 saw his stock rise considerably. Although many of his releases are as slow as 100 BPM and draw influence from funk, disco and soul, he's also known for his high energy, peak time DJ sets, which have seen him play recently at clubs like Watergate, Electric Pickle, D Edge, Warung and many more.
