Win 2 Tickets to 3D (Danny Howells - Darren Emerson - Dave Seaman) at 1720 in Los Angeles (Contest on Hive.co)
Danny Howells doesn’t fit into the standard dance music paradigms. With a reputation as “the DJs’ DJ”, he has remained stoic in the face of ever-shifting trends and fads in dance music since he broke through into the global house music consciousness in the late-90s. He doesn’t churn out productions to “remain relevant”, instead only releasing music as and when inspiration strikes. He’s not a publicity hungry, social media devotee. He’s not someone who feels the need to reinvent himself with new monikers or side projects, nor someone who aggressively pursues a maxxed-out DJ’ing schedule. Quietly ploughing his way through the house music continuum, he has remained one of the world’s most captivating selectors precisely because of these organic means. That and his impeccable selection, distinctive style and silky mixing, of course

Over 30 years in the game and Darren Emerson remains one of the best loved, most highly respected and in-demand artists in the business.

Put simply; he’s worked and collaborated with the best there is. He’s played every major club and festival on earth. Sold millions of albums with Underworld. Rocked the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury. Had his own night in Ibiza…. and that’s mentioning hardly anything!

In the current world of ever-diminishing attention spans and fast-moving, here-today-gone-tomorrow, disposable club culture, it’s Dave Seaman’s passion and dedication for the scene he loves, that still sees him regarded as one of the industry’s most in-demand headlining DJs and constantly touring the world.

The first editor of Mixmag has created over 20 mix compilations for the world’s biggest brands, was the man behind Kylie Minogue’s perennial hit, ‘Confide In Me’ and has remixed some of the world greatest artists and bands, including the late David Bowie, New Order and Pet Shop Boys.
