We are delighted to welcome Danny Daze back to Dublin. He makes his return to us this time in the perfect big room setting. He makes his return to us this time in the perfect big room setting..
Steeped in Miami’s B-boy culture, Daniel Gomez adopted his Daze moniker early on at his mother’s suggestion. Practicing on a set-up she bought him, Danny Daze was spinning at weddings by age 14, funneling his earnings into vinyl to play raves on the side. Danny’s esoteric sets quickly attracted adventurous and loyal crowds. Pushing himself to the next level, Danny produced his first tracks on a cracked version of Fruity Loops in 2004 and jumpstarted a techno white label a year later. In 2011, the School of Audio Engineering valedictorian broke through with “Your Everything” featuring kindred rebel, DJ and producer Louisahhh on vocals.
Pitched down, woozy, and dark, “Your Everything” went on heavy rotation all summer, landed on many discerning year-end lists, and led to output on vanguard labels Kompakt, Ellum, Ultramajic, Phantasy, Turbo and Murk. Described by Michael Mayer as having a “rough and muscular” sound, Daze went on to remix and collaborate with the likes of Maceo Plex, Daniel Avery, Tiga, Jori Hulkkonen, Gui Boratto and Jimmy Edgar, among others.
In 2014 Daze launched an extensive worldwide tour and announced plans for a new music label. “I've ran a label before and feel its time to begin curating another. I‘m not after a selfish agenda built around me.
Daze is quick to point out the various colors in his sound pallet. “My music production is synonymous with my DJ sets, which range from Electro to Italo Disco, to playing some sort of downtempo instrumental right in the middle of the set. The wider the spectrum, the better,”
