With a love for house music that is none other than pure, Dan Treloar’s story as one of Australia’s most talented producer/DJ’s/remixers is growing at an exponential rate. Most know him as one half of The House Inspectors, but as a solo artist his productions are just as sharp and precise; throwing down anything from upfront house to deep, jackin, soulful, and even bar-groove-style jams.
As a producer, Dan’s distinct sound captures a unique vibe that is unforgettable to the listener. His music embraces the very essence of what house music represents. His productions continue to grow with a string of originals and remixes released on well-respected labels like Salted Music, Drop Music, Guesthouse, Flapjack, Mindtravel, Kinjo, and his very own imprint Inspected Music.
Not only is Dan a remarkable producer, he is also known for his high quality dj sets; taking danceﬂoors on a journey with serious booty shaking grooves. Recently, Dan is making his international debut; now NYC at the Brooklyn Shakedown and most recently with tours in Los Angeles and Miami for Winter Music Conference 2011. His gigs at WMC 2011 at The Whitelaw, Clevelander, D’Vine Lounge, and Adidas store, supported premiere global House artists including Random Soul, Jay-J, Soulmagic, Chuck Love, Stacy Kidd, Dave Allison, Jorge Watts, DJ Meme, and Sonny Fodera.
With repeated chart success, Dan remains dedicated to his individual and unique style of house music. 2011 is moving him far-forward.
With their combined passion and ﬂair for creativity, we’re truly excited to bump and grind with Dan “The House Inspector” Treloar and GiangStar on the Bembe dancefloor.
