From his past career being heavily involved in the trap music scene, Quin immersed himself in the already hometown cemented culture of drum and bass. The project DON DARKOE aims to establish and push the sounds of Australian jump-up dnb mixed with catchy melodies and distorted riffs. After having already experienced touring around the Australasian circuit, DON DARKOE’s hype quickly grew as he debuted the project in Perth in late 2022 at Jack Rabbit Slims and saw the dance floor reaching capacity.
Shortly after, the project showcase then commenced at one of the biggest clubs in Perth (Magnet House). 2023 begun quickly with DON DARKOE having his bootlegs constantly reaching the Top 10 Hypeddit Drum and Bass charts which followed by a series of viral videos which amassed a quick rise in both active listeners and followers on all social media platforms. After gaining attention from the Dnb community worldwide, DON DARKOE debut his release on UK monster label CruCast, dropping his bootleg of Darude Sandstorm. Following the momentum, he was then picked up by ShockOne’s label imprint DMR (Dark Machine Records) based in Australia with the release of an official remix of ShockOne’s track ‘SAY WOAH’ released via UKF.
