Episode 81 of the Gangstercast series is brought to us by Dennes Deen. Some call it classically trained. Others call it old school. Many call it the only way: Dennes Deen earned his stripes as a real DJ. Not as a DJ/producer. Not as a producer who has to play gigs to pay for his studio. Not because his management told him to. Dennes is a DJ. A deeply passionate one, who’s been hustling for 20 years.
One of Austria’s most in-demand DJs with a schedule that takes him around the world, Dennes – who beat 40,000 hopefuls to become a Burn Studios finalist in 2012 – has developed a large repertoire of releases to date on respected imprints such as Schönbrunner Perlen, LevelNONzero, Alchemy and DJ Sneak’s eminent beat brand I’m A House Gangster... A serious moment in any artist’s career, this is one especially significant for him, as Sneak’s ‘Keep On Groovin’’ was the first record Dennes bought as a DJ all those years ago.

When we sat down with Dennes Deen we asked how this mix represents him as an artist and he said, "the mix is kind of a retrospective view over my resent sets. I love to play various, eclectic sets, because I find it pretty boring to play the same sound for hours. Thats why the mix consists of various subgenres - but in the end of the days I just want to play tunes with that certain 'groove'. No matter what genre ist is. Thats just me."
He went on to explain, "The 'House Gangster' movement is not just a hype for me. It's a philosophy. A way of living. Some people live Kung-Fu, others would die for Rock'n'Roll, 'I'm a House Gangster' is the way I live since 20 years."
