Originating from Olympia, Washington just south of the Canadian border, DJ Dan is one of the West Coasts most dedicated and consistent house DJ's. Rising to prominence with the Funky Breaks movement of the 1990's, Dan has been a fixture in the industry ever since. Back in 93' he spearheaded the creation of the "Funky Techno Tribe" which helped define the newly forming genre of "West Coast House". A hybrid of house, dub, and techno, Him and his Funky Techno Tribe peers pioneered this sound that is tasteful, faceless, and hypnotic. Staying true to his sound in an era of commercialization, DJ Dan's sound continues to be recognized and received top honors in 2006, earning the #1 spot in DJ Mags Top House DJ category.
In addition to his personal success, Dan has also helped others acquire it through his label InStereo Recordings which has featured releases from the likes of TJR, Wolfgang Gartner, and DJ Sneak. Now one of the top selling House Music labels on Beatport, InStereo turns 15 this year, We are very excited to be one of DJ Dans stops for his tour that celebrates this milestone. Join us as we soak up a bit of house music history as DJ Dan lets the vinyl rip until the sun comes up on at the Nest Stage on the final night of the festival.
