There are multitudes of deejays and many more producers but there are very few who are great performers. Katnip Trax realizes it's always about the performance every moment he is entertaining and serves up incredible moves of a great musician. Every sample and beat is worked visibly by the latest technology of today. Every performance he does yields new ideas for future releases. Katnip Trax (Dennis Etnel) was born and raised in Dutch-speaking Suriname (South America) where multicultural sounds are very well known. He took that culture to Brooklyn as a teenager and re-invented it with New York swagger creating the unique Katnip sound. With his wide knowledge and appreciation of every kind of music genre he spent every waking hour in the studio until he was discovered by Gerard McNamee ,the manger of New York's Webster Hall who felt the energy that was pouring out of this young man. After a 7 years residency at Webster Hall, he decided it was time to grow as an artist and started performing at other venues such as Pacha, Santo's Party House, Sullivan Room, Stage 48, Club Envy, Lavo, Club Fifty Miami, and C-Level Rooftop Terrace Miami. He has also played overseas in Belgium, Holland, Colombia, Brazil, and Suriname just to name a few. Every track he brought to the dance floor was fused with his signature blend of loops and special effects. In addition to the latest hits and underground tracks he also delivered his pounding and highly mastered bootlegs. Over the years he has bootlegged popular artists such as Usher, Adele, Flo-rida, David Guetta, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Deadmau5, Chris Willis, P.Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Soca artist Machel Montano, and many more. His bootlegs are original productions have gained the support of Sensation White players Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano as well as Funk D, Afro Bros., and many more. Last year saw Katnip Trax exposed to a whole new audience as he was selected to perform live on stage to thousands of viewers on international TV with Magic Juan for the Miss Colombia 2013 Swimsuit Beauty Pageant in Colombia. Katnip Trax was also recently sponsored by Smithsonmartin Inc. to perform on the Emulator, the worlds first multi-touch DJ system. The Emulator allows the crowd to see his lightning moves through a giant transparent see-through mixer. Katnip Trax has everything has the skills, talent, and passion to take the EDM world by storm and is definitely a name to watch for in 2014.
