Daddy Bonzai Progressive




Koen Mertens aka Daddy started to produce in the mid nineties with a sampler and an Atari computer.

He went on to release tracks on the Bomb Trexx label and also began performing live at the famous Cherry Moon club. He is credited with writing, arrangement and production on labels like Quest4 Records, 8 Records, Sphear, and Night Flight Records. He also has releases under the moniker The Dudes on One Four Seven Records and Sue.

His most recognised guise came in the form of his project Daddy which kicked off with the track “Time Is On My Side” in 1999 on the label Sue. He got signed to Bonzai soon after and released the very first track on the newly formed Bonzai Fiesta imprint with “Rotationz”. Then he released “Raw” on the coveted techno label Bonzai Limited.

Since then he has kept himself busy with trance production doing lots of collaborations and remixes working with Nash & Pepper under the alias Mr. K. Then I released Panamarenko on ASOT label and a remix for Nash & Pepper on the track “Rain In Summertime” on Soundpiercing.

Nowadays we can expect to see more from Koen as he delves back into the deep techno and house worlds and keeping in with trance also. It all depends on his mood.
