There are few artists in clubland who can move a crowd with the music whilst simultaneously delighting their eyes with an eclectic and beautiful 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 13 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 House, Breaks, Electro, Progressive, Techno, Trance, Hard House… and occasionally Chillout!
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 in 2005, 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).
Dan has also played with the world famous Hed Kandi label, and the BBC Radio 1 residents The Trophy Twins. He has featured on live radio broadcasts on Galaxy 102 Manchester and Silk FM.
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 – 2010), to crowds in excess of 15,000 people alongside Axwell, John ‘00′ Fleming, Above & Beyond, Carl Cox, The Shapeshifters, GMS, Funkagenda, Aly & Fila, Armin Van Buuren and Paul Van Dyk, to name but a few.
Dan is also a long standing resident at the massively successful “Silent Noise” party which takes place weekly in Palolem, South Goa. Silent Noise is the first ever headphone party to happen in Goa, and India as a whole, and was voted the World’s No.1 Beach Party by The Guardian’s Guide Magazine! He will be returning to continue his residency this year as Silent Noise enters it’s 5th season.
He’s no stranger to the studio, and as one half of the collaborative production and performance juggernaught known as Rebel Royal (www.rebelroyal.com) Dan 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.
