Daniel Bell is considered to be one of the pioneers of the minimal techno genre. Born in Sacramento, California, Bell grew up outside of Toronto, and later moved to Detroit where he collaborated with Richie Hawtin as Cybersonik for three years on Plus 8 records. In 1991, he started his own label, Accelerate, where he released a string of extremely influential releases as DBX. Bell was influenced primarily by Chicago House as well as the works of Steve Reich and Philip Glass. His productions are characterized by minimalist house grooves accented by blips and bleeps. Some tracks also feature bizarre voice effects and eerie atmospherics such as "Losing Control," which caused a sensation when released in 1994.
In the mid to late 90's Bell moved behind the scenes to create 7th City Distribution which exclusively pressed and distributed Robert Hood's M-plant, Dopplereffekt's Dataphysix and Anthony Shakir's Frictional record labels, to name a few. He also launched Elevate, Harmonie Park and relaunched 7th City Records. Debut releases on these labels helped kick start the music careers of Todd Sines, Rick Wade, Theo Parrish and Shawn Rudiman among others.
In 2000, he relocated to Berlin, Germany, and released his first dj mix CD, "The Button-Down Mind of Daniel Bell," on Tresor Records to wide critical acclaim. 2003 brought a follow-up release on Logistic records, "The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back," and soon after a retrospective cd of older work was released: "Blip, Blurp, Bleep: The Music of Daniel Bell".
For the past few years Daniel has kept a heavy dj schedule that has brought him all over the world. In 2007, he will temporarily step back from djing to focus on production and developing a live show that he hopes will start to tour later in the year.
