Guest > Danny Howells > Biography
Danny Howells is that rare thing – a DJ that truly has a style of his own. With a passion for all music and infectious personality, Danny has created a unique, eclectic sound that has established him as one of the top DJ’s in the world. In the 14 years since Danny first began Djing in Hastings, England, he has become truly international, and it’s due to his hard work and dedication that he has featured in DJ Magazine’s top 20 DJs in the world for the last six years running. He's played in the world's coolest clubs and held residencies at Bedrock, Twilo, Renaissance and New York’s Arc, where his 10+ hour monthly sets became the stuff of legend.
It’s not only in the clubs that Danny has made an impact – he has created a catalogue of mix compilations throughout the years, notably his own Nocturnal Frequencies series, as well as successful discs for Renaissance and vintage mixes for labels such as Jackpot. He has also mixed number 27 in Global Underground’s series of world famous albums – “Miami”. This was a logical progression as Danny had previously mixed acclaimed albums for both their Nu-Breed and 24/7 series.
In addition, he's also an accomplished producer and remixer. Together with production partner Dick Trevor, the pair have been responsible for many stand up tracks, including the timeless ‘Persuasion/Repercussion’ on Bedrock Records, ‘Breathe’ on Renaissance Records and ‘Kinkyfunk’ on Yoshitoshi. They also hit the charts in 2004 with their Miami hit ‘Dusk till Dawn’, which was released on C2 Records and featured the vocals of Erire.
They have also recently remixed the Destiny’s Child hit ‘Soldier’ as well as twiddling the knobs for the likes of Robbie Williams, David Morales, BT, Chakra and Ashtrax.
Danny has come a long way since his early beginnings, though his complete love of all music remains the same. Danny is a DJ with a broad musical taste who likes anything from jazz to rock, to funk and anything a bit bizarre. He likes to champion his own special tracks and records that nobody else has latched on to as opposed to playing the “hits”, and has a way of combining cutting edge grooves with crowd pleasing dynamics that enable him to connect with his audience making him one of the hottest DJs in the world.
Summer 2007 has seen Danny continue jetting around the globe, with gigs across America plus appearances at We Love Space on Sunday's, Ibiza alog with festival slots at Global Gathering and Glastonbury.
