Spinning along side of top Dj's (Paul Kalkbrenner, Jeff Mills, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Booka Shade, Roman Flügel, Kiki, DJ Hell, Dusty Kid, Supermayer, Francois K, Paul Ritch, dOP…), his reputation grew quickly in the European scene.

Damienwas also a very well known French music journalist, specialized in electronic music, Deputy Editor of the prestigious musical publications Trax. This enabled him a deeper understanding and appreciation of electronic music. His passionate and zestful interpretation of the deep, hypnotic house & techno sound seduced Resident Advisor which put one of his podcasts as the “Mix Of The Day” on its website homepage.
