Inspired by a misspent youth on the dancefloors of clubs like Backtobasics and Sankeys Soap, Dan dreamt of bringing his passion for proper house music to bear behind the decks, playing the music he loved at the best clubs in the world.
After moving to Bristol, Dan wasted no time in making that dream a reality. He began the now-infamous Just Jack parties in 2006, and has played at nearly every event to date. The night has since gained a reputation as a stalwart purveyor of quality house and techno in the UK, playing host to the worlds most revered DJs and producers and recently notched up a win for ‘Best UK Club Event’ at the 2013 DJ Mag awards. Just Jack has welcomed legendary figures such as Carl Craig, Seth Troxler and Derrick Carter along with underground heroes like Steve Bug, Dixon, Omar S, and Theo Parrish, and Dan has shared the stage with them all.
Dan’s passion, experience and skill behind the decks has certainly not gone unnoticed, and his ambitions have been realised through appearances at UK institutions BacktoBasics, Below, Louche, Cocoon and Circo Loco, along with international bookings at The Garden and Hideout festival in Croatia and We Love… at Space in Ibiza.
However, it is at his spiritual home of Just Jack where Dan is most in his element- extended sets see him commanding sweat-drenched crowds side by side with internationally-renowned DJs, with his low slung, sleazy take on house providing the perfect soundtrack for late night disco destruction.
The coming year is set to be a busy one for Dan, with forthcoming remixes on Save You Recordings alongside Rowlanz and Tom Rio and a number of solo releases in the pipeline. Coupled with a hectic Summer schedule both at home and abroad, Dan is increasingly poised to make his mark on the worldwide house and techno scene.
