A Day in the Life of Daniel Bruns

Lauren Krieger

Daniel Bruns takes us through one of the “normal” days of his life in Hamburg.

Daniel Bruns has made a name for himself working hard in many aspects of the electronic music industry, with a passion and focus that has been carrying on for over 15 years. Beginning as a promoter in 2000, he continued to work his way through the music world as a marketer, producer, and DJ, as well as filling whatever roles needed to be done to make the best music happen. Recently, Daniel has been producing “ZOO” & “Cirque Du Son” club events throughout Hamburg, bringing top names and killer nights to eager crowds. His Cirque Du Son show on FRISKY brings that energy to the airwaves, covering a variety of genres with deep and tech atmospheres, and featuring unique and interesting guest DJs that keep the stylistic music flowing. You can hear Daniel Bruns live on October 14th at GET FRISKY / ADE in Amsterdam. In the mean time, learn more about what it’s like to live in his shoes with a Day in the Life of Daniel Bruns:

The day starts fast and comes along with a few meetings, to get informed what happened in the last weeks and discuss the next steps in the projects.

Furthermore we are running our Labels Cirque du Son, deepdub recordings, Neon Stardust and Opium Recordings together. We discuss news, listen to promos and schedule the next releases and do some tiny adjustments to finish our next upcoming remix.
