Biography

Few in electronic music do as much as Chicagos Dani Deahl. Counting credits as a DJ, producer, journalist and blogger, Dani’s reach within electro is all encompassing. She’s produced a Billboard charted track, interviewed heavyweights like David Guetta and Tiga for national publications, headlined Lollapalooza 2011 and currently runs a successful blog, garnering between 60,000-80,000 visitors a month. And that’s just a sampling.

Born and raised in the city that invented house music, Dani was drawn to the genre at an early age, becoming a DJ and landing her first residencies while still in high school. Since then, she’s expanded into production and quickly made her mark. She’s worked with vocal artists from Sue Cho to Oh Snap! and Whiskey Pete, who lent vocals to the Billboard featured “Poppin Bottles”, her songs have been praised by artists like Diplo, Hot Pink Delorean and Donald Glaude and signed to prestigious labels Red Stick (a Strictly Rhythm label), Royal One, Dirty Fabric and more.

Dani hasn’t just made her mark with music, but is an established writer as well. Beginning as a contributor for URB Magazine, she was later hired as the House Section Editor and branched out to write for other publications. Since then, she’s also written for Chinashop (Red Bull’s magazine), TimeOut, Mateo, BPM and more, interviewing the top artists in the world, reviewing albums and singles and writing feature articles. Dani also began her own blog, dsquared, in 2009. Featuring artist-approved, high quality downloads for free, she applied her journalism background to the site, offering detailed reviews for the audio posted. The format and music selection quickly garnered a worldwide fan base and the site now boasts between 60,000-80,000 monthly visitors from the States to Australia, Russia and England.

Dani’s high profile has made her a commodity in recent years and she’s not only headlined cities for capacity crowds throughout the Americas and Asia, but was a top billed act at this year’s Lollapalooza, which also debuted an unusual component for a live DJ set – her team of choreographed dancers. Add that to her signature pink and black locks, a reputation for impeccable, technical sets and a penchant for hard-hitting, dirty electro, and its no wonder Dani’s fan base is loyal and wide-reaching.

With a host of new productions forthcoming along with slated touring, live performance additions and continued nurturing for her journalism and blog, the future looks incredibly bright for this rising Electro star.
