"What a great asset to electronic music, even before the EDM frenzy had been discovered. Dan is a pivotal ingredient to live DJing and production, a real teacher to all."
DJ Sneak

For over 2 decades, DJ Dan has been a leader in the Electronic Dance Music scene. An innovator. A tastemaker. A true legend. A record collector at heart, his sound combines the spirit of 70s Disco and Funk with driving House and Techno. With his label, InStereo Recordings, Dan continues to push boundaries and influence the future of dance music as well as to inspire countless DJs and producers.

"The thing I love about Dan is that he's always had a funky spirit and he always pushes the elements of music."
Carl Cox

Born and raised on the West Coast, Dan was entrenched in music from an early age. In the late 80s, as the rave scene was blossoming, he began his career playing small clubs in Seattle. By the early 90s, Dan made his way to LA and was the center of an exploding underground revolution. But it was in 1993, in San Francisco, that Dan instigated the formation of the legendary Funky Techno Tribe. This time period marked the beginning of a burgeoning breakbeat genre that brought together house, dub and techno. Dan's sound became known as 'West Coast House.' With his cutting­edge ideas for promotion, he implemented what is now an electronic music mainstay ­ the recording and distribution of mix tapes. His ear for new talent also brought a virtually unknown duo to the United States for one of their first shows. Now one of the biggest acts in EDM, Daft Punk tore up the FTT crowd!

It was in 1995 that Dan released his first track under the moniker, Electroliners. 'Loose Caboose' became one of the most definitive and innovative acid breaks tracks of the era, played by Sasha, Digweed, Carl Cox, Lee Burridge, Pete Tong and Justin Martin just to name a few. In 1999, Dan made his first Platinum record, a remix of Orgy's "Blue Monday" cover. In the years since, he has remixed for Depeche Mode, New Order, Lady Gaga, Duck Sauce, Black Eyed Peas, Janet Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest, Carl Cox,
Trent Cantrelle and Fort Knox Five.

In 2000, Dan traveled the world with long time friend, Carl Cox. And in 2001, Carl released Dan's historic track

Feelgood's rise to dance music infamy dates back to his beginnings as the leading force behind the D.C./Baltimore electronic music scene. Alongside his partner and fellow DJ Scott Henry, Feelgood launched Fever, which became one of the most sought after events for touring DJs from around the world. In the early 2000s, Feelgood moved to Southern California with the goal to ramp up his production work, quickly becoming a mainstay in Beatport's top 100.
