Music is our belief system. Music is our authority. Built on the belief that music is the one universal language that can be shared by anyone from any walk of life. It can bridge any cultural gap or language barrier. Music is life. Life is music. This is our DOGMA.
DOGMA is the brainchild of a Chicago native Daniel Kelly who cut his teeth in the city’s underground scene before making his mark on some of the most prominent clubs in Chicago. DOGMA, his newest project; was launched in August 2015 in Chicago to much fanfare while bringing his unique blend of House, House, Dubstep, and Trap. The announcement of the new project garnered immediate bookings in Chicago’s top clubs such as TheMID (DJ mag top 100 club 3 years running), Soundbar, AFTERLIFE, Porn and Chicken(Chicago Nightlife’s best weekly party 3 years running), Trap House, Graffiti, and Bar 63. As well as international attention with DOGMA’s Canadian Debut less than 2 weeks after launch at club Ooraa in Toronto, Canada for the Veld Music Festival after party and subsequent private party booking there the following night.
He has shared the stage with acts from across the spectrum of electronic music continuously demonstrating his versatility. A few but not all include Bear Grillz, Zebo, Elektro riot, Cosmic Gate, and Autobot (Flosstrodamus). Whether the setting is a music festival or small “underground” venue DOGMA always delivers a riveting performance that will leave even the most discerning crowd asking for more.
