Ascii.Disko is the electronic Music project of Madrid-based musician
and DJ Daniel Holc.
Before becoming a dj and music producer, he played in rock-bands and toured around Europe. Perhaps it’s this background, what makes him engage with the live audience of clubs and rave; or maybe it’s because his purpose in life isn’t just spinning sounds behind the decks for his own autistic pleasure, but to whisk/whip people’s brains into a dance frenzy. And he does it by stretching the definition of dance music, with his mixture of Electronica, Electro, House, Techno and even Indie Rock… any rhythm, in short, that has the potential of setting the dancefloor on fire.
Don’t expect him to stick religiously to a predictable diet of only one genre of dance music: that’s the opposite of what makes Ascii.Disko’s sessions so exciting. If he likes a track, he’ll make you dance to it. With this eclectic approach to dancing in clubs, he regularly whips clubbers to a frenzy at Clubs, Raves, Music Festivals, and even at Art Museums all around the globe. He chooses styles of electronic music but in a tight mix. Always different and surprising, always good...
So far Daniel released two sucsessful albums as Ascii.Disko ["Ascii.Disko" 2003 and "Alias" in 2006] he released 12" on labels like Moonboutique, Dance Electric, Television Records or Pale Music and did countless remixes for bands like The Presets and producers like Josh Wink.
Daniel will release his new e.p. '...until the lights takes us' on may 19th on Body Function Records taking the sound of Ascii.Disko into a new direction. He will also release the Album "From Airlines to Lifelines" under his Alias 'Black Orchid' on Pale Music in June.
Further Ascii.Disko is teaming up with Codec for a split 12" on Body Function Records and coming up in August is new e.p. on the US label "Biatch Industries". A brand new Ascii.Disko Album is planned for the end of the year.
