2004 started off a great year for Dan. Having established himself at some of Manchester€™s top venues, and going from strength to strength with what is lined up to come.

Through the year he has played at such venues as the hugely popular The Bar at the renowned Deansgate locks area of Manchester, while also on his list of events have been Elementals, Denver’s the Font Bar and Jar Bar.

November was a big month for Dan with an event for cancer research for a launch of their new brand Today at Manchester’s Deansgate locks. This event included artists such as Shola Ama and the huge Tim Westwood along with the Galaxy 102 team, James Holroyd, Rob Bright, Krysko and Mani.

When it comes to his music, Dan likes a whole range of styles from electro to funky and chunky, techno and breaks – a very versatile DJ.

Another string to his bow is production. With help from his very talented friend Guyver, Dan has created his first track “Is that it?” which compares to style with Steve Angello and Eric Prydz Pryda. He also remixed guy’s hugely popular “Succeed at all costs” with great results. There are more tracks in the pipeline so watch this space. Furthermore, he has remixed Modjo’s lady giving it a chunkier feel this gives his set a definite edge.

2005 looks very promising for the aspiring house DJ with the outstanding Tidy weekender 7 playing alongside the Trophy Twins and Funkagenda, a Goodgreef pre event on the 14th of may, and playing at Storm @ The Emporium in Coalville in June, as well as regular bookings for Toast in Manchester and Toast Ibiza for the summer. Things are going well!
