DJ Dan played a huge role importing European house music and rave culture to America in the early '90s. It was him, along with a few others, who kicked out monstrous LA parties that set the tone in America. Most mediocre DJs find a ridiculously narrow niche of the music and then milk it dry; DJ Dan dextrously melds disparate strands into a cohesive, engaging whole, and his knowledge ranges wide enough to allow him to move from entire hard-house sets to techno sets to big-beat sets on a whim. He's touring in support of his new mix CD, Another Late Night (Moonshine). Also on the bill is one of the best house DJs in St. Louis, Jeff Feller, whose knowledge of the ins and outs of the music rivals DJ Dan's.
