Squeaky Bleeps #003 - dangerDan

Morning all... I'd like to introduce to you the third in our mix series... featuring up and coming DJs/Producers from around the UK and the World.
This time we've chosen to feature the talents of one of the most impressive and ear-catching producers I've come across in quite a while.

dangerDan has that rare quality for me... he's able to fuse together everything that I love about the deeper, melodic side of house, techno and electro music, whilst still being able to keep things dancefloor friendly and, critically, purely innocent and fun.

He sent me over his remixes of Armand Van Helden's Funk Phenomenon, Blondie's Call Me, and Sebastian Teiller's Kilometer, which I warmed to and featured on this blog in my old weekly, Monday tune posts. However, it was a certain remix of Little Boot's Earthquake, which struct the most sensitive nerve (particularly at 4:34, when beauty reigns supreme in a remix that has invaded the very top of my iTunes most played list. Touches of glints of Duke Dumont and glints of recent Boy 8-Bit, with the kick of The Subs. I was hooked from that moment onwards.

He's since gone to produce some of his own work, most notably Mokini and Escape, which have certified dancefloor approval from me. You can catch both of these, and a couple of his other cheeky tunes below... and please make sure you check out his Soundcloud page.
