Raised in Greenwich Village, NYC, Danny was born into a musical family, with jazz music the labour of love. Whilst working in his parents night-spot, The Ninth Circle, Danny was introduced to influential figures on the scene (Hendrix, Lennon & Ono, Janis Joplin). With such a wealth of talent surrounding him, it was no surprise that Danny spent most of the 1970s spinning the hot records of the time in the family owned club.
A network of DJs and producers grew as the underground culture embraced the musical scene. David Mancuso (The Loft), Nicky Siano (The Gallery), Walter Gibbons (Galaxy 21) joined ground breaking DJs Larry Levan and Francois K in the new revolution.
Danny Krivit would spend his time at the Paradise Garage, avidly roller-skating round the dancefloor as Levan span the latest platters. Krivits DJ career meanwhile grew steadily to encompass influential clubs such as The Roxy, Danceateria, The Limelite, Save The Robots and many many more.
Naturally, the joy of spinning records in night-spots gave Danny a craving to enter the recording studio, spending the liberating 80s era working on tracks featuring James Brown, Gloria Gaynor and Visage and a whole host of others. Danny has since gone on to edit, produce and mix a plethora of material that puts his status as studio technician firmly at the top of the pile.
In 1996, Danny teamed up with long time associates and Body & Soul founders, François K and Joe Claussell. Danny has since spun every Sunday at this revered NYC party and has helped his reputation grow in overseas territories such as Japan and England, representing Body & Soul on 2 special occasions.
