There are few artists in clubland who can musically electrify a crowd whilst simultaneously invading their minds with an eclectic and mesmerising VJ show. As a veteran DJ, VJ, Producer and Visual Artist, Dan is one of the few who can make this claim.
Having DJ’d for over 15 years now, Dan has a burning passion for electronic music. He has become known for his standalone sound and style which is energetic and pumping, accessible yet truly underground, melodic yet sometimes flavored with darker undercurrents and downright dirty tones. The flexibility gained from his many years of experience allows him to please the most demanding of crowds, blending chamelion-like between musical genres including Funk, Soul, House, Breaks, Techno… and occasionally Chillout!
His visuals receive constant acclaim, whether they’re displayed on stadium sized LED screens, or via full dynamic 3D Projection Mapping… Anything is possible: if you can build it, he can map his visuals onto it.
Dan has held residencies at many clubs in the North of England, including BeBa and Angels Nightclub, South Manchester. He played at the Godskitchen vs Goodgreef “From Russia With Love – The Red Revolution” Event held at the Manchester Evening News Arena, attended by over 5000 clubbers. DJs playing at this event included Paul Van Dyke, Marco V, Judge Jules, Fergie, Eddie Halliwell, Lisa Lashes, Lab 4, Kriss Knight (S.T.U.D.) and Paul Hutch (Unzipped).
In India, Dan has held residencies at Tito’s and Cafe Mambo, two of Goa’s most well known and longest running nightclubs. He is a firm favourite amoungst the Indian party scene and has graced the decks at almost every major club in every major city including many headline appearances for India’s premier clubbing brand Submerge (www.submerge.in) alongside Nikhil Chinapa (MTV), DJ Pearl and DJ Tuhin.
He has performed at every Sunburn Festival to date (2007 – 2012), to crowds in excess of 20,000 people alongside Talamasca, Axwell, John ’00′ Fleming, Carl Cox, The Shapeshifters, GMS, Funkagenda, Aly & Fila, Above & Beyond, Armin Van Buuren and Paul Van Dyk… to name but a few. Dan is also a resident at the massively successful “Leopard Valley” party which takes place weekly near Palolem, South Goa. In the winter of 2013 / 2014 he launched his own night “Mo’Stash Funk” on Palolem Beach, South Goa, which proved to be a massive hit from the word go… check out the madness HERE
Dan is no stranger to the studio, and as one half of the collaborative production and performance juggernaught known as Rebel Royal, he has released critically acclaimed tracks, many of which have appeared in Beatport’s “Top 10 Essential Tracks” lists and have caused serious dancefloor damage globally. Expect more releases this year via Studio 45 Recordings, in which he is a partner.
Apart from all that, Dan’s a down-to-earth guy, likes cats, dogs and his Mum’s Sunday Roast.
