Daniel Bell

After years of being in bands and producing hip hop music, Daniel Bell had a surprise success with his first 12′ released on +8 records while still in film school near Toronto, Canada in 1990. The record was “Technarchy” co-produced by Richie Hawtin and John Aquaviva, and it spurred a move by him to Detroit. There, he reduced the Detroit techno sound into funky, streamlined grooves. The formula proved to be successful and helped launch a new minimal aesthetic in techno and house music. As well as producing Daniel has also kept a busy dj schedule for the past 8 years. He has played many major venues throughout the world including Liquid Room/Tokyo, Lost/London, Rex Club/Paris and Staples/San Francisco.
