In the summer of 2008, Denis went down in the history of Russian dance culture as first DJ from Russia to have a residency in Ibiza, and he returns to the White Isle each summer season DJing at the best clubs. During the 2010 season he organized a series of parties (DAR Sessions) in one of the best clubs in the world, Amnesia. 2011 marked his first trip to the Winter Music Conference in Miami, USA. There he played at official parties organized by the legendary Bedrock label, including the sunset yacht party with John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren."Denis A is aphenomenal DJ. Great taste and programming make him stand out from the crowd. He has pioneered the progressive sound in Russia and beyond." - Nick WarrenDenis presents the very popular radio show "Diamonds Of Dance Music" which airs on MGPS 89.5 FM (Moscow) weekly, bringing the best new underground electronic dance music to the ever growing Muscovite clubbing community. He has also now become a resident DJ for GlobalClubbing, the Russian company with a worldwide reputation.Denis A is a perfectionist with ambitions to become a great artist, and is still proud to DJ mostly with vinyl, which he argues gives him the necessary “feel” to create his breathtaking and highly memorable sets. This love of vinyl has been very important in his decision to make sure that his DAR label releases are available on 12” for vinyl collectors in addition to the more usual digital format these days.In 2008, Denis A launchedhis DAR label as a creative outlet for his studio productions. With his highly distinctive style crossing genre boundaries via progressive, techno, deep dub and minimal influences, DAR has been steadily building a strong fan base worldwide. Releases have featured handpicked remixes by the highly talented Style Of Eye, Solaris Heights, Pig & Dan, Wally Lopez, Robert Babicz, Spooky, King Unique and Nick Muir. Denis has also made the point of pushing the most exciting new talented producers forward by featuring remixes from Fran Von Vie, Scotty.A, Egor Boss, Nikitin, Grigory Fatyanov, Beltek, among others. The legendary Russian DJ/Producer Boris The Spyder has also made a verywelcome appearance.A steady stream of DJ support for DAR has come, most notably, from Laurent Garnier, John Digweed, Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, Tiesto, Glenn Morrison, Desyn Masiello, Deepgroove, Marco Bailey, Josh Gabriel, DJ Vibe, Sebastien Leger, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren and many more since the label’s inception."Denis A is a true ambassador for underground music in Russia." - Timo MaasIn 2010 Denis organized a DAR Label float at the world famous LOVEPARADE (Germany) and a DAR stage at the huge Kazantip Republik (Ukraine). The Kazantip stage has just been repeated in the summer of 2011. The first show was a preview of a forthcoming new DAR sub-labelRA:DAR, which featured artists such as Guy J, Sahar Z, Spy.der, Fish, Denis A and Vavinchi. The main show was the closing party of 'Z' Republik, where the main stage was given entirely to the DAR label, where Denis A was joined by John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Watrren, playing to 15,000 people."Denis is definitely giving the scene in Moscow and the whole of Russia a lot of positive energy as a DJ with his great DJ skills, with his productions, his parties and his excellent record label DAR!" - Marco BaileyAs the label grows in stature, DAR tracks have now started appearing on compilations, such as Ministry Of Sound (Germany) dedicated to the Love Parade (Denis A - Brutalizm), and a compilation from the legendary Bora Bora (Denis A - Tsunami) by DJ Gee.
