Dailucia was discovered at the famous Dutch television show Holland’s Next Topmodel. In the show she mentioned that she would rather like to perform as a dj in front of thousands of ravers than to stroll the Parisian catwalks. As a consequence, she was immediately voted out by the jury.
The preliminary end of her modeling career made way for her musical aspirations to rise again: Dailucia’s musical talent was noticed by Cloud 9 Dance, who gave her the opportunity to develop her dj and production skills further.
Dailucia was born as Claudia Stegeman in Vaassen, a small village in the eastern part of Holland. From an early age Dailucia fell in love with the harder side of dance music and because her hometown lacked quality events, she decided to throw her own. During one of her parties, she suddenly felt the urge to spin some records herself.
Having felt the thrill of playing in front of an audience, she became fully dedicated to develop her skills. By practicing heavily she became better and better, gaining more experience every time she played.
After a short break, Dailucia is now back to unleash some serious sounds upon the scene. With her own sound which encompasses both melodic and dark hardstyle, she is ready to compete with the big ones. Now that Dailucia has hooked up with some of the best producers around, she is also working very hard to create her own tracks.
Her first EP ‘Music Over Mind’ was released in the spring of 2009, her second EP ‘Sonar’ was released not much later. Both releases received heavy support from all the big hardstyle DJ’s, leading to many bookings for Dailucia - also at the prestigious Defqon festival. For Dailucia, this is only the beginning… So stay tuned!
