Breakout Dutch Techno Talent DIØN Unleashes Anticipated Hard Techno Rework of ‘Public Enemies’ on Rough Material Imprint


The unstoppable rise of new-age Hard Techno has brought many exciting prospects, but few have sparked as much excitement as emerging Dutch youngster DIØN. Already touring internationally and garnering the support of some of the genre’s most influential tastemakers, including Amelie Lens, Sara Landry and Fatima Haji, DIØN is set to unveil one of his most in-demand tracks as he prepares to launch the Hard Rework of ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ on his Rough Material imprint on 29th March 2024. Download/stream it here:

A consummate Hard Techno banger laced with retro, rave-inspired sounds, this reimagination of ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ perfectly embodies everything that has made DIØN one of the genre’s most appealing breakthrough talents. Building around its core of pounding kicks and relentless percussive drive, the track’s continuum of unpredictable variations, especially its nostalgic rave siren sequence, make it an unparalleled peak-time stomper, built solely for demanding dancefloors and potent sound systems. 

The original version of ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ has been a definitive indicator of DIØN’s exponential popularity, racking up several million streams across all available platforms and breaking into Beatport’s illustrious Top 100. With big boots to fill, 2024’s long-awaited revamp of his most significant release has already started to spark hype amongst his fans and the wider Techno community. Just as he did with the original, the Hard Rework of ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ has featured exclusively in DIØN’s sets for months, making it the only place anyone has heard it. The intense and continuous demand for an official release date, which stretches back deep into DIØN’s jam-packed 2023 gig schedule, clearly indicates how sought-after his anthemic releases and undeniably memorable performances are fast becoming. 

Further adding to the occasion and marking a monumental second release on his Rough Material imprint, DIØN has also designed a limited number of label-branded ‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ Bomber Jackets, Hoodies, and T-shirts to be released alongside the single on 29th March.
