After many singles, remixes and an album release under the Progression guise, Daniel Wanrooy now moves on to a new level in his career with his debut solo album entitled ‘Slice Of Life’. Daniel has been pretty busy in the midst of the recording sessions for his new album, he’s finished remix assignments for The Crystal Method, Super8 & Tab, JES and Thrillseekers and saw his earlier single, ‘Endless Moments’, secured by Ferry Corsten, who used it for his double mix compilation ‘Once Upon A Night, Vol.2’.
The same happened with Betsie Larkin with Super8 & Tab’s ‘All We Have Is Now’ in the Daniel Wanrooy remix, which Corsten grabbed for ‘Full On Ferry – Ibiza’. Daniel also delivered his DJ mix for the ‘In Trance We Trust, Volume 14’ mix compilation, whilst bookings poured in as he performed in Brazil, Taiwan, South Africa, the UK and in most European countries. This summer, Daniel will also make his debut in Ibiza.
The prelude to all these achievements was the single ‘Ocean Terrace’, which now appears on the album in a special 2012 version that already gained the support of Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and BBC Radio 1. Richard Durand reserved it for his ‘In Search of Sunrise 8, South Africa’ mix compilation. Durand later requested Daniel’s ‘Bangalore’ for his ‘In Search of Sunrise 9, India’. For the album, Daniel collaborated with several established artists such as USA Idols finalist Blake Lewis, Elliot Johns, Emma Lock and Hannah Ray. He’s also mastered the album together with Tiësto’s producer Dennis Waakop Reijers-Fraaij and ceased the opportunity to move between styles, showcasing his own skills as a producer:
“For the ‘Slice Of Life’ project my goal was to work with various sounds in order to create a varied electronic dance music album, with influences of progressive, house, trance and even techno, moving the BPM between 123 and 133. Working with the biggest vocalists in the scene made this an accomplishment that I am really proud of.”
