artist biography

Dorian Knox is one of the colourful characters of the Hungarian techno scene, since he represents a style, which has become a curiosity in the little country, called Hungary. He has been interested in playing music since the year 2000, around that time he prefered the more pleasant and popular type of sounds. Nowdays he has found his own musical taste, which is dark and industrial and it fits the most his personality to play with real passion. During the long process to found his style he experienced a lot and various factors affected and influenced his decision. One of those important milestones was the encounter with a Hungarian dj who had his record store, which was the way Dorian found the records and genres that are made his commitment to techno for a lifetime. In general he represents industrial, however we can find releases in his record case from Jeff Mills, Mark Broom or even The Advent, which expands his unique mixes. Due to his talent he gave his first gig during the summer in 2004 at Kashmir Underground while he was a resident for the Dirtybass and Listen to the Techno events. At this time he met with Wildcrush and they shared our passions and aspects about the electronic music. They were played memorable back2back sets in the early mornings. In 2005 until the year of 2006 he played an important role in the BudapesTechno movement as he was involved in the management part of the event as well. After all, one year residency followed his career in the music club, called Freeport. One year later he joined the Fuerza team where he had the chance to introduce his new side and present his altered musical vision. In 2009 he made his debut on Justmusic FM, which is the leader electronic music radio in the country.

For the first time he played in the ‘Mind the Tech’ radio shows. Meanwhile he started producing his own music with Ableton Live. In 2010 he moved to the only regular techno radio show on the channel – ‘Planet Radio Show’. Since then he performing there regularly and he is one of the unique artists who are playing monthly.
