Danzel (born as Johan Waem) was born on November 9th, 1976. When he was 15 he and his friends started the pop-rockband “Scherp Op Snee” or “S.O.S.” in which he sang and played the bass guitar. He started his professional career by becoming the finalist in Belgians Idols competition, 2003.
After Idols, he came in contact with Jaco Van Rijswijk, a producer who had some big hits in the 90's with Natural Born Grooves. Jaco introduced him to dance-music which is different from Rock-music he had made before. They created hit “pump it up” which became a smash-hit and was signed to all major labels in the world and sold over 3 million copies worldwide. That was the beginning of the fame that he has in the present.
Danzel has toured the world several times and has done an enormous amount of shows for audiences which sometimes exceeded 200.000 people! Over the past 10 years, audiences enjoyed his wonderful songs like: “Put your hands up in the air”, “My arms keep missing you” (with Dj F.R.A.N.K), “You spin me round”, “What is life” (with Belgium's top Dj Regi) and so on... He got an Eska Award in Poland, an MTV-Music award in Russia, several gold records for the sales of singles and albums and so on
