Funrazors, Damien profile

  • He knows how to get a party started!

    Damien's DJ and MC career started in 2006, when he met his Funrazors buddy Coen (DJ Treblelizer). A friend, who is an MC, asked him to join a party which he organized together with Coen, the other Funrazors half. Damien was quite impressed about what they did on stage. He decided on the spot that he also wanted to master the microphone and the decks! On a next party he just grabbed the microphone and started MCing. Coen saw the potential of this guy and lend him two turntables, a mixer and some records so he could try to spin and mix. Coen taught him the basics and he practiced a few hours every day. In only a few months he learned to master the turntables, and eventually Coen asked him to join him at a party where he played some records along with Coen and did his MC thing the rest of the night. And so it happened.

    Together they played at lot of parties, but both still with their own artist names. One year later they officially started to work as the Funrazors when they were asked to play at a mutual friend's wedding. From that time they always performed as the Funrazors at parties throughout the whole country, Damien as DJ and MC as well. They've tried several dance styles and both decided that they like Dirty Dutch and Electro House most, and this is what they still do.

    His first international gig was in 2008 in Benidorm, Spain. His Funrazors buddy was asked to do a tour in Southeast Asia for two months and Damien felt a bit alone. Fortunately he got an offer to come to Spain, so he didn't hesitate a moment and took off. For a month he played four nights per week in a dinner show venue. After the show, they transformed the venue into a club where Damien was a resident. It was also in Spain where he met someone who asked him to come to Paris to play. So when his agreement with the dinner show venue came to an end, he left for Paris and played there in several bars and clubs for a while. When Coen came back to Holland, they took up the thread and continued working as the Funrazors.

    Although he already has played at many parties, Damien still has a lot of dreams and wishes. He wants to travel around the world with Funrazors, playing at all major festivals both nationally and internationally. And then of course on the main stages and the best moments on the timetable. And he wants to do tours in countries like America, Japan and Australia. He wants to perform as much as possible and gain world fame!

    At the moment, Damien is working hard - together with Coen - on producing their own tracks and later an album. They already have some cool tracks in pre-production, which will be released very soon!
