Biography

DT8 Project is the brainchild of legendary producer Darren Tate, the man who gave the world Jurgen Vries, Angelic, Citizen Caned, Orion and many other massive cross over dance hits. The project was created with the goal of creating electronic music that married intelligent songs, sung from the heart, with emotional chords and cutting edge production. This was the very heart and soul of Darren’s desire to bring a modern but truly touching listening experience to the general public, and so the act bearing an acronym of his own name was born.

Originally DT8 Project (initially called ‘DT8’) started out with Kim Wilde’s little sister Roxanne fronting the act, and after an infamous bidding war between all the UK’s major labels the first single ‘Destination’ eventually landed in the lap of Pete Tong’s label London Records / FFRR (part of the Warner Music Group). Unfortunately politics became a factor and the record only managed a disappointing UK singles top 40 position rather than the Top 10 it much deserved.

Darren then took the act into another direction with the follow up single ‘The Sun Is Shining (Down On Me)’, where he brought in newcomer vocalist Rob Li. The record was an instant hit amongst the world’s leading DJ’s (in both it’s original trance and house mix format). Even though major labels were bidding to sign the record Darren’s courageously released the record on his own label ‘Mondo Records’, and despite heavy competition from other more established labels the single still managed to secure an impressive UK top 20 position. The record was licensed to labels around the world, appeared on many leading compilations and enjoyed major international success.
