May 26, 2006 - Bill Hamel www.billhamel.com
”Bill's production prowess and his keen sense of melody and song structure has never ceased to amaze us. His impeccably-detailed yet 'human' approach to music-making is a breath of fresh air from the seemingly emotion-less and barren soundscapes which permeates much of our brand of electronic music these days.” –Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia, Deep Dish

Born in Argentina and now based in Los Angeles, Dan De León is a creative force. At 17 he produced his first feature film which premiered at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and then directed short films which have toured festivals all over the world since 1998. Beyond his South American good looks and bad-boy charm is a man dedicated to delivering a unique physical and emotional experience to his audience.
Every De León DJ set is a three-act performance connected directly to the audience, both reacting to and driving the energy on the dance floor while telling a new story every time. Using elements of Tribal and Progressive House, De León weaves a kinetic musical experience that will stay with you long after the night has ended. The key behind De León's innovative connection to the audience is his stylistic strength. By integrating the most engaging and never-before-heard vocals into a soundscape heavy in Tribal-House percussion patterns and Tech-House melodies over aggressive and funky Progressive baselines, De León is able to craft sets that speak the familiar in a completely new language all his own. A ferocious combination that equates to an experience that is at once sexy, deep, aggressive and uplifting—De León is a rare talent that shines brightly and always leaves his audience begging for more.
