Danny Howells is known as a game changer in the EDM industry with more than 20 years of experience and an unmatched, unlabeled sound style. His love for all things EDM including influences of house, techno and progressive have allowed Danny to create a sound for the experienced EDM listener; the listener looking for music that is unique, unparalleled and will just make you get up and dance. Danny Howells has shook up the globe with residencies at top venues including Ministry of Sound, Arc, Twilo, Renaissance, Bedrock, and his own ‘Dig Deeper‘ events. Howells can work a crowd so sequentially whether it be in a small intimate setting like Cielo, a wild beach setting such as on the isle of Ibiza, or huge world festivals including Voodoo Festival in New Orleans and BPM Festival. Early in his career Danny Howells revamped techno with an east coast twist hand producing one-of-a-kind tracks like “Timeless Persuasion/Repercussion” on Bedrock Records, “Breathe” (Renaissance Records), “Monodrama“, “KinkyFunk” on Yoshitoshi Records, and two collaboration tracks with Deep Dish that changed many of our minds about dance music, “Nobody Listens to Techno“ which Eminem so feverishly sampled and edited and “Size DDD“. Danny Howells is infamous for his re-edits and remix work for top artists such as Madonna, electrifying her track “Get Together”, Marco Bailey’s “Smooth Drive”, and Roachford’s “Ride the Storm“, in addition to working with Destiny’s Child, Robbie Williams, David Morales, BT, Felix da Housecat and International Observer, just to name a few. He releases tens of hundreds of original productions each year since the beginning of his career in the 90′s and he makes it a point to always edit tracks that most artists would be too afraid to touch. Danny Howells blew fans away with his collaboration work with Felix da Housecat, recreating “We All Wanna Be Prince” as a tribute to the deceased artist. He is known for his edgy, groovy, 90′s dance style bringing listeners back to where house music originated, yet always adding a modern twist. I’m sure fans are excited to hear his recent dynamic releases “Psychoticbump“, “Everything’s Here (Deetron Remix)”, and Lexicon Avenue’s re-edit of “Breathe”. I have never been disappointed by a Danny Howells party so I am eager and excited to catch his groovy-esque sounds this Sunday July 1st, 2012 at Cielo NYC for a evening of straight dancing!
There’s no DJ’ing duo more sinister and badass than Sleepy & Boo, not to mention they’re native New Yorkers. Sleepy & Boo play electronic music of all shapes and sizes with a caliber so fresh and refined they land in a category all their own. The EDM industry loves dynamic duos, but we love dynamic couples that can blow the roof off of venues, both large and small, even more! Begona and Michael Basic helped us all become ‘slaves to the drum beat’ back in the early 2000’s with their fibrous bass lines, ‘hypnotic grooves and tripped-out sci-fi synthesizers’, skillfully meshing these components all together to deliver a driving sound of house, tech-house, and deep-house that our east coast ears love. They enable diversity into each of their sets making every performance eccentric and memorable. Just before Memorial Day Weekend I saw Begona Basic throw down one of the finest techtonic, funky house sets of the season at Beekman Beach Club to open up for M.A.N.D.Y. and Tom Middleton and that woman blew me away! Sleepy & Boo began hosting their own anomalous events labeled ‘Basic NYC’ which began at Sullivan Room in 2004 and have now moved to the sexy Le Poisson Rouge venue in Greenwich Village. Basic NYC which has been named as New York’s “Best Dance Party 2009” by New York Magazine has become an international attraction bringing venturous party-goers from around the world to catch some of the greatest, most eclectic names in underground music deliver incomparable performances while in an intimate setting. With their killer Basic NYC events, podcast on iTunes, and S&B Radio sessions, Sleepy & Boo have been taking the New York City Nightlife scene by storm. I’ve seen them a million times before and watching them light up those pioneer decks never gets old so I look forward to watching them open up for the masterclass, house-music master Danny Howells this Sunday July 1st at Cielo Club along with Basic NYC and the whole Dance.Here.Now. crew!
