DJ Dan is synonymous with house music. Those who have followed this musical innovator’s wide ranging career have seen him evolve from playing small clubs in Seattle and Los Angeles to playing worldwide in some of the world’s most illustrious venues.
It is DJ Dan’s lifelong love of music that has driven his rise to success. From forming the Funky Tekno Tribe in the early ‘90s to being named one of the top twenty DJs in L.A. by LA Weekly, DJ Dan’s career is a study in melding house music’s sub-genres into one, heart-pounding sound dubbed West Coast House.
The beauty of DJ Dan’s body of work lies in his ability to bring fans of breakbeat, dub, techno, acid house, disco house, and funk together under one roof, moving to the same beat, feeling the same pulse with pure joy.
While he’s regarded a king in the club scene and one of house music’s innovators, DJ Dan’s work hasn’t gone unnoticed by mainstream artists including Depeche Mode, New Order, and Lady Gaga, all of whom tapped him for remixes. He’s also been recognized by nearly all of the genre’s leading publications including DJ Mag, which named DJ Dan as the #1 House DJ in 2006; Urb Magazine named him America’s Favorite DJ and America’s Hardest Working DJ; and he landed in the top ten in DJ Time’s America’s Best DJs. His set at EDC 2014 earned him recognition from DJOYBEAT.com and Magnetic Mag as one of the best sets of the weekend.
DJ Dan is perhaps best known for producing and playing incredible music, but he has an unparalleled eye for talent as well, signing some of house music’s most respected and widely renowned artists to his Los Angeles-based label Instereo Recordings. After releasing tracks with TJR, Phunk Investigation, Wolfgang Gartner, DJ PP, DJ Sneak, and Hatiras, Instereo Recordings became a force to reckon with, advancing DJ Dan to the highest peaks of club music fame. Along with his own label, DJ Dan has releases on Toolroom, Pacha Recordings, Ultra, Guesthouse Music, Work, XL Recordings, Magnetic, and Rising, to name a few.
But it’s the love of his peers and fans alike that keep DJ Dan creating and producing. This beat-matching master has collaborated with the world’s most talented dance music artists to create unique tracks with his trademark funk that brings crowds worldwide to the dance floor. From Carl Cox and DJ Sneak to Mike Balance, there is hardly a DJ in the industry who either isn’t clamoring to work with this global legend or hasn’t worked with him. In their own words:
“Dan is a pivotal ingredient to live DJing and production, a real teacher to all.”-DJ Sneak
“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
“We go back since the early 90s and he DJ’d some of my first warehouse parties. He’s an L.A. underground staple and music legend.” -Insomniac President and CEO Pasquale Rotella
The praise of his peers and multitude of accolades piled on him by media outlets and industry experts alike have not even begun to slow DJ Dan who recently released his sixth album, Full Circle. Thoughtfully curated to take the listener on a full circle through the various stages of DJ Dan’s career, this latest masterpiece includes new solo tracks as well as collaborations with Mike Balance, Hazarro, DJ Mes, Rescue, Hipp-E, Ido, and Gordon John. Listeners will also be treated to DJ Dan’s remixes for Conga Squad, Gary Caos, Slynk, and Jarred Gallo. In some masterful reverse engineering, Full Circle also includes remixes by Jude & Frank and Leandro Da Silva.
The world of music continues to spin and DJ Dan spins right along with it bringing a freshness and talent to every set and every track that inspires his peers, influences up-and-coming DJs worldwide, and moves his music lovers to new heights of dance.

DJ Wreckordz:
Wreckordz bought his first pair of belt drive Technics turntables and a refurbished Realistic mixer from Radio Shack way back in the winter of 1995 in Barrie Ontario in grade 12 and while being a current member of his band at the time Surf Camp Rejects in which he played rhythm guitar. (wreckordz also plays the drums, bass guitar and the piano) Going to raves in Toronto in 96 and 97 he would watch the performing DJ’s to figure out the techniques they used to try and copy them to further his own mixing and scratching skills. Moving to Victoria BC in the summer of 97 Wreckordz soon started playing local parties and gigs around town and up island. Upgrading to proper Technics 1200 turntables in 1999 was a real step up in perfecting his mixing and scratching skills. Over the years he’s had local weekly residencies and has also played shows in Seattle, Cultus Lake, Vancouver, and Nanaimo to name a few cities and opening up for such names as Dieselboy, Jon Bishop, Bad Company, Born on Road, and DJ Dan.
Wreckordz started a radio show called The Wherehouse in the winter of 2014 which is still currently on air on the local Victoria BC station CFUV 101.9 fm airing on saturday nights at ten pm pst and winning the award in 2020 from NCRA for the best pop, electronic, or dance music show.
