Dar Records represents the UK based music label founded in 2008 by DJ & producer Denis Alentieff (in fact, DAR stands for Denis A. Records).
In 2008, Denis A launched his 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 very welcome 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 labels inception.
In 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-label RA: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.
As 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.
With a continuous flow of new singles, an ever growing international DJ schedule, big DAR parties regularly happening in Moscow and throughout Russia, and his DAR, DAR DIGITAL (and new RA:DAR) labels to run, it looks like the future is shaping up to be very exciting for Moscows Denis A.
