Biography

Danny has always had a deep routed passion for music. At an early age he developed an interest in Cornet and Trumpet playing and has since played with some of the countrys better known brass bands. Whilst at school he also discovered the talent for writing and arranging music for brass bands and during this time penned many fine arrangements which helped bring the brass band repertoire more up to date. Over the years he has taught music theory and the practical side of brass playing to many people, young and old, on a private basis. So, in short, you could say that music is his life!!

He began to dj at the latter part of 2002 at the age of 25 and, within 6months of first touching a pair of decks held a residency at one of Sheffields hottest Sunday afternoon music spots – the Cossack! In the early days, Danny “jumped” from genre to genre until, in 2004, he “landed” on House. In these early days his main influences were such people as Armand Van Helden, David Guetta, Dj Sneak and Erick Morillo. Two years ago, Danny began Housebound at Club Xes in Sheffield. The night was originally a Funky House night, but after two or three events it was apparent that funk just wasn’t enough!! There was a need for something a little harder. So, spending some hard-earned cash, he filled a record box with some chunky Electro tunes. The words “never looked back” spring to mind!! Housebound now has the perfect mix of Funky House, Electro and House classics – a bit of something for everyone. In April 2006, along with Kane Nelson, Danny organised the infamous Kerfuffle after parties which gave him the chance to play his other favourite dance music genre – Hard Dance. Both collections, Hard Dance & Electro, are meticulously kept up to date. Please check the “Downloads” page for recent mixes.
