Joey Daniel’s career can be summed up as nothing less than a well-deserved rise to fame. The Rotterdam born/Amsterdam-resident has been making waves through the Dutch dance scene for nearly a decade now. By now he has become a key figure in Dutch nightlife, a trusted provider of acclaimed sets, having played nearly every club and festival imaginable.
2015, however, is Joey’s international breakthrough year, by taking the leap that every DJ secretly dreams of: his first big gigs in Ibiza. It is also the year where a ten years worth of gigs both in his home country as well as abroad, experience in curating and hosting top-quality events and an ever-growing appetite for the studio are now culminating into Joey’s greatest chapter yet. And it’s only just begun.
His early beginnings are known to many of his close friends and loyal fans: putting his skill to the test at Rotterdam’s famous warehouse parties. Quickly gathering experience in Rotterdam’s nightlife, Daniel would later be adopted by one of Holland’s most forefront nightclubs, Toffler. At Toffler, he would later also become a resident, putting enough trust in Joey’s capabilities to grant him an all-nighter twice a year, and has been doing so for four years now. During these marathon sets - sometimes even lasting ten hours - in Rotterdam’s neon-laden dance temple, Joey would come to truly understand what it is that fuels him as a DJ and how he can take complete control of a crowd.
