Rapidly expanding his empire, Yaniv Biton, better known as MR.BLACK, has quickly become one of the go-to names in the dance music industry thanks to his unique production style and vibrant, high-energy performances.
Mr.Black’s discography is nothing short of impressive, with an array of chart-toppers. His massive releases on Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings instantly climbed to Beatport top 3, with ‘Party People’ and ‘Hu-Ha’ hitting a number 1. Mr. Black has been supported by all of the industry’s biggest names, including Tiesto, David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and his home-label boss Hardwell.
Performing and touring at the biggest venues around the world, from Brazil to Japan, through Miami and Bangkok, MR.BLACK is attracting huge crowds on account of his explosive shows and highly polished mixes, rocking the decks at festivals such as Tomorrowland Unite and Life in Color to name a few.
2017 has proved a pivotal year for the producer, with MR.BLACK announcing himself to a wider range of audiences in the dance music community, with performances alongside the likes of Steve Angelo, Avicii, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, DVBBS, Diplo, Showtek, R3hab and Don Diablo and many more.
A production mastermind, MR.BLACK has also acted as the brain behind some of the biggest releases in the music world, co-producing for Madonna and collaborating with Sony Music and Warner Music Group among others. He has crafted diverse soundtracks for several global brands, and TV commercials. His 2014 track ‘Loud’ received support from the likes of Hardwell and Chuckie crowned it as “the hottest track right now” on his ‘Dirty Dutch Radio’ show. His 2015 release ‘Boombox’ with Sonny Wilson, was signed at Tiesto’s ‘Musical Freedom’ imprint, shot to the top of the Beatport charts. The track received support from the likes of David Guetta, Afrojack, W&W, Timmy Trumpet and KSHMR, with the latter currently in the process of producing a collaboration with the in-demand MR.BLACK himself.
MR.BLACK is also a half of the duo WARRIORS, alongside psy-trance icon Skazi. The duo proved to be a hugely successful venture, making big waves with their Infected Mushroom collaboration ‘Becoming Insane’ on the mighty ‘Spinnin’ Records’ label topping as #1 on Beatport psy-trance chart. With Armin van Buuren labeling MR.BLACK as a ‘legend’ for his part in the project, WARRIORS debut EP was released on Armada Music.
