Meet Marlon Hoffstadt, aka DJ Daddy Trance, Berlin's pioneering techno dad with a buggy full of bangers. The 29-year-old DJ, producer, and family man embarked on an eventful journey, from Shazaming records in Ibiza to creating instant anthems like 'Call Me' and 'It's That Time.' Often labelled as trance or hard house, Daddy Trance's tunes became ubiquitous in 2023 DJ sets, earning tens of millions of online streams. Balancing kids and beats isn't easy, but DJ Daddy Trance pulls it off with flair. Whether it's his signature whistle, parenting skills, or a secret lunchbox formula, Marlon Hoffstadt's mission is clear—to bring Daddy's Delights to global dancefloors with sets that leave crowds smiling like fatherly pats on the back.
