“Danito & Athina”- behind this name are the two cologne (Germany) Artists who harmonies together privately just as musically. The charismatic Duo “Danito & Athina” are calling attention with the Releases on Stil Vor Talent / Crossfrontier Audio / Eklektisch / Jeudi / Light my Fire. Their sound is a mix of Tech-House, Underground and Progressive.
“Danito” who has been producing for 20 years in the techno scene, made his passion to his job. People also know him from many releases on big labels like Cocoon, Suara, Moon Harbour etc.
Now Danito do only music together with Athina and it´s a never ending Story……
“Athina” is a producer from cologne, who has her roots in the soul music. The greek / german woman spent all her time for the music.
She love to produce songs and she sing a lot of vocals in their own tracks. The last 6 years she worked every day with Danito in the studio, but that´s normal for this duo. They only live for the music.
You can feel the passion in their common projects, because there is always a surprising, fresh and epic sound.
So get ready for the dynamic Artist Duo and enjoy!

All of our Sisyphos (Berlin) gigs are super special, this underground atmosphere and the 4 hours give us some space for our set to bring the people in Extase.

Armenien we played there at the Before Room and it was also really cool … Some days ago we played on the Springtij Events Boat Party and the energy from this people was so amazing!
