After Cable/Relay very sadly closed down, we were determined to not let it stop us from still having THE party of the summer. So with a new date and our brilliant new intimate venue East Village
, Nuestra Casa featuring the one and only purveyor of deepsexyfuturistictechfunkhouse - Danny Howells
- is well and truly on!
Danny is one of the few DJs around with a record collection diverse
enough to do an extended set justice, and we simply can't wait to unleash him on the Nuestra Casa dancefloor. Grab your tickets now, as this one is set to be a roadblock
Danny Howells is one of the few DJs on the scene today that truly has a style of his own. With his passion for all styles of music and infectious personality, Danny has created a unique, eclectic sound
that has established him as one of the most in demand DJs in the world. Danny is one of the hardest working and most dedicated individuals in the business with over 19 years experience and a hectic touring schedule that constantly takes him around the world. He's played in the world's coolest clubs and held residencies at places such as Arc, Ministry of Sound, Twilo, Renaissance, The End, and Bedrock
, as well as his own Dig Deeper nights worldwide.
With a back catalogue of well received mix albums under his belt, his most recent compilation was his contribution to Renaissance's legendary Mix Collection series, released in September 2008. Previously, Danny has compiled acclaimed mixes for Global Underground
, being the only DJ to contribute to not only the main series with his Miami album, but also the 24:7 and Nu-Breed Series
. In addition to this, he also compiled a CD for Azuli's Choice series, as well as three volumes of his own Nocturnal Frequencies series. His mixes have also made waves on the world famous Essential Mix
, where his fourth mix aired in early 2007. It's not just as a DJ where Danny has made a name for himself, he's also an accomplished producer and remixer. With Dick Trevor, he has been responsible for many stand out tracks, including the timeless 'Persuasion/Repercussion' on Bedrock Records, 'Breathe'
on Renaissance Records and 'Kinkyfunk' on Yoshitoshi Records. They also hit the charts in 2004 with their Miami hit 'Dusk till Dawn'
, which was released on Cr2 Records and featured the vocals of Erire.
More recently, Danny has been focusing on original productions for his own Dig Deeper
label, the likes of which have been licensed to mix albums by artists such as Juan Maclean on his DJ Kicks album, and Cassy
for her recent compilation on Cocoon. On the remix front Danny has previously mixed records such as Roachford's 'Ride The Storm', Madonna's hit single 'Get Together', and Marco Bailey's 'Smooth Drive'. Other artists that have received the remix treatment include Bent, We Deliver, Stryke, International Observer, Robbie Williams, David Morales, BT, Chakra, Ashtrax, Coco and Stonebridge and Felix Da Housecat.
Danny has come a long way since his early beginnings DJing at Bedrock
in his hometown of Hastings, 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 pop and anything a bit bizarre. He likes to champion his own special tracks
and records that nobody else has latched on to 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
