Dan’s musical quest began amidst the inception of the techno and house phenomenon of the early 1990s. From his

hometown of Cleveland, Ohio Dan experimented with a vast number of styles, producing innovative sounds of every variety:

from Chicago to Detroit to the East Coast. Dan’s considerably impressive discography dates back to 1992 when his first

releases on Detroit’s 33 RPM Records and Belgium’s Buzz motivated him to launch his own production hub: Metamorphic

Recordings. His unwillingness to commit to a singular style was instrumental to his continuously fresh releases on big players

such as Peacefrog, Strictly Rhythm and Sublime, and Soma while his forward-thinking approach brought him tremendous

support from the likes of Carl Cox, Carl Craig, and many more.

In 2003 Dan decided to focus on a “funkier” production sound while his creative instincts provoked him to make a quick

change to a the more fast-paced music scene of Berlin, a city powerfully cranking out fresh ideas and young creations. This

creative move soon triggered a string of new releases on young, happening labels such as Bass Culture, Holic Trax, and

Saved.

Over 70 singles, nine albums later Dan is just as innovative and fresh as he has ever been whether recording under his own

name or under one of his his many aliases such as Purveyors of Fine Funk. His refusal to lock himself into one style as well

as his unique ability to collaborate with artists from a variety of genres has helped him to maintain not only his status as an

individual amongst a world of ever-increasingly like-minded musicians but also his status as a legend over nearly two

decades.
