Nothing but the best minimal & tech house beats hosted by Dan Hayes. Featuring up and coming stars and some red hot promos...
Having grown up listening to a wide variety of music it was safe to say it has always been around him & was only a matter of time till he found his feet. It wasn’t until his teens that dance music became a very heavy influence, growing up & listening to the likes of Swedish House Mafia gave him the urge to then take up DJing. This only started off, like most, in the bedroom where he would practice for friends.
Then a move to university where the lifestyle, and influences would dramatically change. Having been surrounded by deep & tech house from peers & the local nightlife, Dan switched his attention and began to delve deeper and emerged himself within the industry and the music. Regularly going to events and club nights this brought the urge back but in a new form, the buzz came back & heavy practicing then saw improvements being made. Then it came to the attention of a local brand who would then give him his first opportunity to play out in a club.
The buzz from having his peers around & others all dancing to the music he was playing gave him the push he needed to try & make something of it. and after months of practicing, the odd gig here and there one of the turning points was then formed.
In late 2015 Evermix ran a DJ competition which was hosted in association with Krafted & Toolroom, in January 2016 it was announced that he had won. The odd gig here and there then turned to more regular bookings.
His versatility is one of his key attributes whether it’s the type of crowd he plays in front of or whether it’s being able to mix in a variety of genres within one set he does it to create an atmosphere unique to himself. Although still young his eagerness for challenges does not stop and his ability to read a crowd has warranted where he is today.
