An Ezup return for a man we have a lot of love for and who has one of the greatest fairy tale start up stories around: giving Moodymann his CD at Dimensions festival and the next time he saw him he was signed to his distinguished Mahogani Music - becoming the first non-Detroit artist to be so.
Dan also runs his own label Shake which he uses as an outlet for his Shake edits and Shake Tapes. Volume 4 of the latter came out this year to rip roaring response from anyone who heard. Not only is he a production maestro but his DJ sets are always dripping in soulful energy - both his Boiler Room appearances are a testament to that.
We cannot say enough good about him and neither could two of our previous guests Jamie 3:26 and Jeremy Underground who both singled him out for praise for the style of and selections in his sets.
