DJ Proteus official homepage

Proteus has gained the respect to be called Finland’s most known Hard Dance DJ. Proteus has been DJ’ing for 10 years in his home country, where he first started to play at free underground parties. At that time nobody played styles like Hard NRG and Hardtrance in Finland, so Proteus and a couple of his friends decided to organize underground parties, where they could play their own sound.

Proteus and his friends have been the key figures in creating the Hard NRG and Hardtrance scene in Finland. From 1998 to 2005 Proteus gained continuesly more and more success in Finland playing all at all major club and events like Säde, Laserpoint,Rush, Labyrinth, Hallmark, Millennium, Fantasy, Storm, Vertigo, Pacifique, Trancehouse meets Lab-4, Celebration Generation, Reactor, Turbulence and Koneisto.

The biggest achievement for Proteus so far in his career has been the Hard Dance Awards 2004, where he was voted “Best Hard Dance DJ” in the world by clubbers all around the globe, leaving such legendary names as Lisa Lashes and Yoji Biomehanika behind him. In the DJ Mag`s 2004 Top 100 DJ list, Proteus was voted number 90 and made history in becoming the first Finnish artist making it to the Top 100 DJ list alongside Darude. In Septembers Mixmag issue Proteus was placed as number 3 in Top 5 Hardest djs in Mixmag’s article about “40 hardest records ever”. In his career so far Proteus has had gigs in Finland, United Kingdom, Holland, Australia, Japan, Switzerland, Germany and Estonia.

    Proteus is also a prog-rock band from Chicago, USA. Their album "Infinite Change": very decent.

    "Hard Dance DJ from Finland" is the best Proteus of all! Screw all the others with the same name.

    Since he calls himself Dj Proteus, the correct tag would be Dj Proteus, obviously.

    PutridGuy: Proteus, the DJ, is older than the other Proteus'. He's been making music longer under that name. Deal with it.

    Proteus (Harri) is awesome. I just got his newest album and it tags the artist as Proteus automatically so I'll let it be. No need for DJ in the front.

    It ain't Harri's fault that this band couldn't think of an original name. :P

    Proteus' (band) debut CD was made in 2007. Proteus' (DJ) debut was years before. What are you metalists whining about?

    I feel sorry to be a metal fan when I read comments like the ones from Devilation and bestial_roksy.

    As said before, the DJ's artist name is Proteus and so is the name of this Death Metal Band. See.

    Whata fuck? DJ Proteus is fucking different thing than Proteus, fuckers. I think you r stupid fucks who tag this as trance or techno. If they'd have the same name i'd understand this shit.
