Danny Bonnici Bio....
Recently name checked as “one of the hottest names in dance music” by DJ Mag, over the past 6 years Danny Bonnici has been at the forefront of the world’s dance music scene.
Working with his band Nubreed to bring people the sound of now, Danny has amazed audiences with his raw stage presence and crowd-pleasing performances. Now as a solo artist he’s truly coming into his own with I-DJ Mag, Ibiza Online and DJ Mag all signing praises for his world-class production/engineering & dj’ing. What we know as true, they know also know: Danny delivers the goods; with his own style of dirty 4/4.
Danny’s collaborative efforts saw him co-produce the 2003 hit “Ride” with friend Luke Chable, this tune was a huge hit in the scene giving Danny international recognition further to his efforts with Nubreed.
With his own release 'Return to Saturn' featured on Luke Chable’s 2006 Renaissance CD and its solid vinyl release to follow short after, such tight productions have seen Danny nominated for a Dance Music Award and an Aria Award in previous years.
He has also done collaborations with renowned producer and engineer Andy Page - the result of which Vermouth appears on the Nubreed Y4K.With a string of original and remixed works under his belt Danny’s music is being played by the biggest Djs in the world including Sasha, John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo and too many more to even mention. His latest efforts in 2010 include collaboration’s with Anthony Pappa and releases on labels such as Long Distance Recordings and Audio Therapy.
Danny Bonnici has been involved in releasing three mix compilations in 2006, all of which have been received with applause from the dance music press. The first with Nubreed for Distinctive Y4K saw them tour Australia nationally in support of the compilation. The second, for popular local label Stomp’s Electric Series saw King Unique take on one CD, whilst Danny (as part of Nubreed) took on the other. The third was a mix compilation with Luke Chable for new Australian label Hiddenform.
His love of production and engineering has meant he’s quick on the uptake of new technology as Danny has become one of the first Australian DJ’s to exclusively use Ableton Live in his DJ sets and not just in the studio. Taking what he’s learn t on the road back to the studio again, Danny is one of the only qualified Ableton Live teachers in the country. His recent endorsement agreement with the company in Australia means that Danny is one of 4 Australian producer/ DJs to be featured by the company as their preferred endorse e and Artist of choice to support.
This year he has been devastating dance floors across the country from Sydney to Melbourne, Cairns & Perth and Asia, Europe and the USA. In fact, 2006-2010 has been the years in which Danny has made leaps and bounds into new musical realms, along the way firmly establishing himself as a strong solo artist/engineer in his own right.
