Danny Daze is Daniel Gomez, a studio nerd and DJ with a taste for Techno. Djing at raves at the age of 13 is how his obsession with this sound was rooted. Raised in Miami, Fl. Daze is influenced by his Cuban culture, thus giving him the latin influence heard in some of his music and Dj sets. With other influences by Giorgio Moroder and Anthony Rother, Daze's DJ sets are deeply commanded by Detroit Techno and Italo Disco.
There is a rumbling and a growing excitement in dance music’s underground surrounding an act that is primed and ready to explode onto the scene. Iranian/Canadian Amirali will soon have the world at his feet and the universe in his pocket, with his debut artist album ‘In Time’ released on Crosstown Rebels on May 14th.
Amirali’s journey has taken him from living in Iran to Toronto to London where he now resides, via an architecture degree. Growing up in the city of Tehran, and starting piano lessons from the age of 5, Amirali’s main musical influence was his father’s record collection, which opened his eyes to classical, jazz, blues and rock'n'roll. At the age of 16 Amirali’s family immigrated to Toronto in the hope of a better future.
Amirali’s musical prowess wasn’t picked up on until he transferred his architecture university studies to London in 2010. He now confesses the move was driven more by musical aspirations rather than academic. This proved to be a very good decision indeed.
His mysterious and haunting vocals and forward thinking musical style caught the attention of A&R extraordinaire and Rebels head honcho Damian Lazarus. Damian promptly signed him for an artist album, and used his track ‘My Way’ to open his visionary compilation CD - Get Lost 4. This was quickly followed by the hit single release ‘Beautiful World’ which reared its head in January 2012 and gained huge acclaim from DJs and music aficionados alike.
His sound is guaranteed to make your mouth water and your feet tap and his output is a brilliant mish mash of house, techno, funk, electronica, disco and everything in between. Think Depeche Mode jet propelled into the 22nd century whilst being chauffeured by Art Department & Underworld.
It is rare that an artist is signed to one of the most established labels out there without a single commercial release previously, but Amirali is an incredibly talented musician, not just a producer. He performs his music live with vocals, keys, loops and effects; re-editing his unique tracks on the fly, catering them to his audience. Having already wowed crowds at Fabric London, Watergate Berlin, Get Lost Miami, Grelle Forelle Vienna, Gloss Club Milan and Rebel Rave shows in Sydney & Melbourne, It wont be long until you’ll be seeing and hearing Amirali everywhere
