Born and raised on the West coast, Dan was entrenched in music from an early age, to be exact, a time when the rave scene was enduring its birth. It's a sweeping understatement to say Dan has been at the forefront of dance music culture since the late 's, especially when you consider how he's shaped trends and sounds in his homeland all his musical life, taking the baton from house luminaries such as DJ Pierre, Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy.
Drawing influence from a wealth of musical genres, Dan charts disco, jazz and funk as precursors to his interest in more industrial forms of music including freestyle and some forms of rock.

The early 90's saw Dan move to Los Angeles, feeding the roots of the emerging underground scene in the US, Dan's after-hours shindig 'No-Doz' rounded off debauched weekends for the fledgling DJ, holding down multiple dance floors each Saturday.
As the scene exploded Dan was at the centre of a musical revolution; underground promoters snapped up his ability to blend breaks, disco and all things funky that inadvertently placed him as the leading figure on the rave scene. In ; a move to San Francisco with a re-invented sound that lended itself more to acid house and electro, Dan instigated the formation of the legendary group Funky Tekno Tribe that sought to push the boundaries of house music.
Dan's innovative eye for promotion saw him implement the recordings and distribution of 'mixtapes', a simple yet revolutionary method that soon developed into a frenzied culture that remains an electronic music mainstay, in various forms, until today.
With an ear for good music and eye for new talent, it was at this time that the FTT brought an unknown French duo to tear up one of their parties Daft Punk never looked back. This period marked the beginning of the burgeoning breakbeat genre that encapsulated house, dubs and techno.

Mike Balance. It takes 40 seconds for the baseline to kick in on the first track. You just sit there in suspense thinking you know when it'll fire. When it does finally hit you, it smashes! There are little intricacies worked into this compilation, just like the above example, which is why this is one of my favorite albums in my collection. The two consecutive strings of tracks that I never get tired of are strings and Track 12 by Dan himself is definitely the sweetest one in the set.
It's 'squeeky' clean, Stars (DJ Dan & Christophe Chantzis Remix). If you buy it, you'll understand. In summary, if you like music that MOVES, never lets up, includes a variety of goodies that are attributable to Dan the man himself too many to get into nowand ultimately reflects the craft that IS progressive house, pick this one up!
L8ter Sk8ters. Not as good as "Funk The System," but good nonetheless. Whereas "Funk The System" goes from funky to techy, here DJ Dan seems to have found a half-way point between that funk and tech and combined it, spreading both evenly over this mix. This is by no means bad -- the tracks are wicked and make me move, but it lacks the surprise that "Funk The System" had with its smooth transition from funk to tech. The stand-out tracks are "Dr. DJ Dan has outdone himself this time.
No more cheesy disco house tracks or annoying prog-club garbage. Another Stars (DJ Dan & Christophe Chantzis Remix) Night is bumpin' dance music that maintains an incredible energy level throughout the whole mix.
Destination's "Defintion of Love" is an incredible track i have it on vinyl too, it is awesome Also, CZR's remix of Eddie Amador's "Rise" is a welcome addition to the mix, and this remix is nice for everyone who is sick and tired of the same versions of "Rise" appearing everywhere. All in all, this is a great release for Moonshine - easily one of the best. The production is good, Dan's mixing is great, the track selection is killer "That Zipper Track" again, though?
Not to say that it's bad For starters, the whole 73 minutes is spent flawlessly mixing from kickin' track to kickin' track It just sounds as if he sat down with all his most pounding tracks and spun 'till the needles broke.
Now sure this makes for an energetic set, but it also makes for a somewhat repetitive one in that every point on the CD carries the same flow. If I had to make a comparison, I'd say that this album sounds like a cleaner, funkier version of "Beats4Freaks" Funk" is worth the price of admission alone.
Other cool selections are the saxophone overlayed Trevor Rockcliffe remix of Sgt. Phunk" gets the album's "best mix" award. All in all, DJ Dan's "Another Late Night" is an excellently mixed CD that keeps movin from beginning to end, and I strongly suggest even his mildest fan should have this in their collection.
But may the "Dan enthusiast" be warned that it's a far cry from the aural excellence of his legendary "URB Mix 2". Where to start DJ Dan comes back with a new type of progressive house and Im not sure if I like it! Till now DJ Dan has been all about funky make you dance Stars (DJ Dan & Christophe Chantzis Remix) night music. So if your thinking of purchasing this CD because you want to hear good old dan spin his funk house, then you may want to think about the purchase again.
This CD however has grown on me the more times I listen to it. I got this CD a while ago. I have never been able to listen to it for more than a few minutes.
I just don't like the CD. Maybe it's my tastes. If you want to hear some deep, heavy, dark dance beats, don't get this. This has a happier feel than I like, but mostly the songs are just so blah.
They are more than blah. I can almost hear my CD player begging me to remove it every time I try to give the CD one more chance. See all Stars (DJ Dan & Christophe Chantzis Remix).
