Friday the 13th is not always equal to a fatal day. This is also not the case in terms of Dayton, who was born in Bad Honnef on that day in December 1991.
At the tender age of just twelve, Moritz Quast, which is Dayton’s real name, got familiar with electronic music and started to spend a lot of time listening to and analyzing mixtapes and live sets of famous DJs. “What mesmerizes me most on electronic music, is the fact, that nothing is impossible. Almost any idea can be implemented.”, states Dayton. “I also love the crunchy 4/4 beats, you can’t keep your feet stand still to. I’m a gifted party-goer myself and I dance a lot.” Influenced by the fascination of this music, the desire to shape the scene on his own as well, germinated in him pretty quickly.
