New Orleans Dan the Man


Born and bred in a city of culture, food and music. Coming from a father who played saxophone, Dan picked up quick at an early age the concept and rhythms of this thing we call music. His life was surrounded by the culture of not only local bands and artists, but expanded across genres and decades. Growing up around his father in bands, he sang along to songs from the 50's to the 80's. Dan played saxophone through school. Around the age of 16, he got into DJing in a local teen club. From there he DJed in an adult club, then the radio. Dan now produces trance music under his real name. He also produces breakbeat music under the alias Tears of Technology.
