In 2000, he decided to participate to a dj contest called “djmania”, an initiative of the belgian province “Limburg” and “Four in trance”. Out of more than 69 contestants, 16 half finalists and 8 finalists he came out as winner with a mix of hard techno with electro influences. Dj Daemon was called one of the most promising djs from Limburg.
