- DAN CURTIN
- WILL O’BRIEN
SUB-SCAPE proudly welcomes back one of our all-time musical heroes, Dan Curtin, a true purveyor of fine electronic funk and hypnotic grooves. Since coming to the world’s attention in the early 90s through a series of releases which re-imagined the techno sound of Detroit with a unique twist of his own, Dan has remained one of the most eagerly observed producers in dance music circles. As well as releasing a series of landmark albums on the UK’s Peacefrog label, Dan has gone on to release for countless top techno, house and minimal labels including Strictly Rhythm, Sublime, Elypsia, Down Low, Rush Hour, Starbaby, Headspace, Tuning Spork, Soma, Dust Science, Mobilee and of course his own Metamorphic imprint. He has forged a particularly distinctive and original musical style, thus managing to avoid being identified with any particular scene. Influenced by hip hop, electro and house as much as by Motor City techno, his productions are raw, funky, unpredictable and never stand still. Deeply rooted yet always futuristic, Dan’s sound is as relevant today as it has ever been and it displays a confidence and maturity few contemporary techno producers can match. There is no doubt that Dan Curtin has defined himself as one of the key players in the development of electronic dance music as we know it today. Equally adept as a DJ, Dan loves nothing more than to rock a great party from behind the decks so there’s no better man to finish the SUB-SCAPE anniversary celebrations in fine style !
