Silent Reign, also known as Darren Valencia, is a talented tech house/house music DJ and producer currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Despite not being musically inclined growing up, Darren developed a love for music at a young age and found himself drawn to DJing in high school. He taught himself how to mix on a controller in 2010 and started playing at house parties before branching out to playing at frat parties and local clubs.
After discovering EDM, Darren found his true love for house music and started playing raves in 2012, earning himself a spot at the first Das Energi festival in Utah alongside big names such as Benny Benassi, Fedde Le Grand, and Zeds Dead. He continued to stay productive in the local rave scene, playing at various festivals and shows under the name Valenia. With his success as Valenia he then decided to pursue a duo project called PushPlay where Darren and his partner in crime at the time won the Insomniac Discovery Project in 2014. They continued to see success from there with playing festivals, shows, and clubs, but then decided to split unfortunately.
After taking a break from music for a few years due to personal reasons, Darren re-launched his career in early 2020 under the name Silent Reign, incorporating his son's name into his new stage name. Despite the pandemic causing a delay in live shows, Darren used this time to perfect his productions and was able to start playing shows again in 2021. He quickly found himself supporting big name artists like Claptone and Gorgon City as they toured through Salt Lake City and also started releasing music on various labels such as Monkey Stereo and Get Served Records.
Darren has continued to support big name artists such as; Claptone, Gorgon City, Cash Cash, Zhu, Dombresky, Bhaskar, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Shiba San, Anna Lunoe, and many more. Darren has also received support on his recent releases and unreleased promos from the likes of Chris Lake, Bhaskar, Paco Osuna, Gettoblaster, and more. Darren has also started touring himself, playing shows in cities such as Miami, Denver, Los Angeles, and Phoenix, as well as abroad in Mexico and Costa Rica. With a massive catalog of unreleased music, Silent Reign is just getting started and is sure to make a name for himself in the house music world.
