Dan Tait has literally spent half his life behind decks - just hitting 30, he has been rocking parties for over fifteen years.
Having first seen him in 2002 hammering the effects unit on a Pioneer mixer and using messed up loops on the CDJ-1000 being used to sculpt an epic workout constructed from three copies of the same track, they asked him to join their testing team and contribute advice and criticism on prototype Pioneer products.
But it is not simply technical skills that have marked Dan out as Leeds' favourite after party DJ, (DJ Sneak, Louie Vega and Erick Morillo have all had their Leeds carry-on sessions sound-tracked by the man himself); Summer 2003 saw Dan take Ibiza as dj for G-Club (Defected) and 2004 saw him play the first full 90minute DVJ set at the closing party of Space. Further performances with G-Club have seen Dan play at Defected in the House in Leeds and the Ministry of Sound in Taiwan where G-Club now have a bi-monthly residency.
His dedication to good House music, whatever it's sub-genre, his ability to read a crowd and then tease them into submission, and the pure optimism of his 'let's get this party started' attitude have all been central to the attention and respect he has attracted from the diverse range of clubs, DJs, producers and promoters that he has worked with.
