This is the GUY who made me fall in LOVE with House Music and the DJ experience.. DJ Dan means a lot to the Global Groove Network and it’s mission statement of wanting to connect, educate, and showcase the experiences it creates as a music culture. My first introduction to the dance music scene happened back in the 90s at a warehouse event in Toronto called – CONNECTED. 14,000 people showed up ready to BOOGIE and it was an amazing night with friends, strangers, and music lovers. DJ Dan was a part of a killer line up that involved Carl Cox, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Junior Valsquez, and many more. When Dan hit the decks with his VINYL (God Bless the Old School!) He mesmerized the crowd with his skills and dance floor bangers.. This is where the journey was inspired to make this documentary. It was exciting to find old footage of that event and archive this moment in the DOC along with some other cool DJ Dan moments when I finally got to meet him.

To those who still may not know all that much on Dan, our West Coast bred friend has been around the block a few times and has been turning heads for 2 decades entertaining the masses with his killer sets, productions, and his evolved techno sound. Music has been forever entrenched in Dan’s life, having garnered a superior record collection at the age of 8 that would give Amoeba Records a run for its money. Starting his professional musical career with some smaller clubs in Seattle and then Los Angeles, DJ Dan had a rise to recognition in the dance music community that could be considered meteoric. Forming the Funky Techno Tribe in 1993, DJ Dan fused together breakbeat, house, dub, and techno to create a sound that later was fittingly crowned, West Coast House! With classic anthems such as ‘Needle Damage’ and remixes for everyone from Depeche Mode to Duck Sauce, Dans production prowess is undeniable. The journey that Dan’s talents have taken him on could go on for pages and pages. The press have drooled over his music; DJ Mag named DJ Dan the #1 House DJ in 2006 while Urb Magazine named him America’s Favourite DJ the following year… This individual is truly an icon in the global dance music scene and worth a trip to his Dance floor when he comes to town!
