Intrigue is right! There is no better name for this dj! DaVeN TreAgue arouses curiosity and interest with unusual, new and otherwise fascinating skills that force the crowd to succumb to his crafty musical plot. His experience, passion and pure energy overwhelm an audience with euphoric feelings one might only be able to compare to an illicit love affair.
His own love affair with the musical art of djing began at the age of 14 when he noticed the dj had an ability to direct a crowd, almost as if they were actors in his own show. This revelation began his drive to create his own productions with dreams of a complete cast to act out his schemes of intrigue. In less then two years DaVeN was booked Wed-Sat for weekly dj performances that included an all ages club called Area 54 and a live radio show called Rhythm Pit, broadcast from the Oklahoma City theme park, Frontier City.
During high school DaVeN began to rise through the ranks of the local Oklahoma rave scene but it was not until he traveled to Europe at the age of 18 that his EDM evolution found new direction. Attending large events in Russia and Amsterdam with names like Tiesto, BT, and Paul Van Dyk brought much clarity to his almost systematic plans of electronic ascendance.
Back in the states nothing could deter this dj from making this dream a reality, even if it meant refinancing his car to buy his first set of turntables and a mixer. DaVeN then enrolled in classes for music production and recording which later earned him a master’s degree in Music Production and Technology from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. By now he was completely submerged in the rave scene, playing parties almost every weekend in Oklahoma and its surrounding states under his name then, Addict-D (a name appropriately given to him by friends that felt as though they needed to recognize his EDM and turntable addiction).
In 2008, prepared to capture every crowd, DaVeN was hired as the resident at The Copa. This was the same club he attended on a regular basis to get his own EDM fix. A short two years later The Copa was voted the top dance club in Oklahoma City, having the best music on the dance music scene. A very impressive accomplishment since the club had never been nominated in its long history. On the list again in 2011 DaVeN had to make the difficult choice to leave over musical differences.
The future is bright! DaVeN is now dropping forceful beats as the resident at Posh, inside the largest and oldest dance club in OKC. And he has a new track “I Do for the Music” which he will be debuting during a guest appearance at the Lizard Lounge in Dallas. So be on the lookout behind every sick sound, for you may just be another player in his next design of intrigue.
