For the second Sub-Culture of 2012 we are excited to be joined by Welsh badman – Doc Daneeka!
It’s not common for an artist based in Wales to become the toast of underground music, but Doc Daneeka is just that. With releases on Ramp, Fabric, 50 Weapons, PTN, & Well Rounded in the bag, Doc Daneeka has started his own boutique label, Ten Thousand Yen, releasing other fresh artists like XXXY and Julio Bashmore as well as his own unique material. Bookings all around the world and being accepted into Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid 2011 (along with Sub-Culture’s own ChaCha) has solidified Daneeka’s reputation for his tight productions, and his energetic DJ sets are some of the most sought after performances by clubs all around the world.
Delivering scorching mixes for the likes of Fact Mag & Xlr8r, trademark rattling drums and punchy low end characterise this producers unclassifiable DJ sets, as well as countless unreleased dubs.
Doc Daneeka makes some of the best house music around right now – with peers in Hackman, Roska and Julio Bashmore, he favours syncopated beats and polyrhythms over linear drive, and has remixed Delphic, Digital Mystikz and more in the past to great effect. His releases for PTN have shown eight slabs of colourful house almost impossible to avoid getting physical to. His much talked about debut album with Benjamin Damage, entitled ‘THEY!LIVE”, is just about to drop on Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons imprint and is receiving praise from all corners of the music world. Doc Daneeka is delivering the goods, while wearing the weight of internet expectation. UK Dance music’s health and sound has never been so rude!
