There's even more to it than that...See him live.
A true scholar of dance music, Danny Techlove is a DJ that respects the sounds of the past while recognizing the need for new and innovative music. Danny's musical influences are as eclectic as his range, with roots in Baltimore’s old school (parties like Citrus Club at Orpheus, Buzz, Fever, and Son...ic Soul events) as well as the latest sounds coming out of the mid-Atlantic and the world today. He can be seen regularly playing at many of Baltimore's premier dance clubs and events, and has managed to build a reputation as one of Baltimore's finest.
In addition to his skills in the DJ booth, Techlove brings with him an unparalleled ear for music. His unrivaled determination to continue pushing the envelope of what we hear in the club keeps his fans coming back for more. Even before Danny took his passion to the decks, he was long known as an authority on what was new and on the forefront in underground music, and his sets craft a mix of soulful sounds, minimal deep house, and dirty techno.
As recently described on GourmetBeats.com, "Danny Techlove's point of view is not only clear, but comes with an excellent ear. Dark, deep, lush tech house that just begs for speakers big enough to let the bass surround you. Danny is a long time lover, collector, and supporter of music in the Baltimore area.” This unique blend of skill and discernment has made Techlove the force within music that he is today.
