Dan Gayle is a DJ with a passion for house, electronica and techno that runs deep. He loves nothing more than to build atmosphere, energy and intensity throughout his sets, and is a real crowd pleaser with his interactive and engaging personality. With a beaming smile permanently on his face and a kid-like excitable energy clear for everyone to see, people feed off this.
On the production front he is a big fan of bending and blurring genres, loving expansive, atmospheric synths, building breakdowns and creating a sense of euphoria or melancholy. He’s equally at home both writing a track that is a heavy techno number, as well as one that takes the listener on a magical journey, with there being a recognisable consistency that confirms his signature sound and style. One of his tracks was selected as backing music to a Carl Cox @ Space Ibiza after movie.
As a resident DJ and co-owner of The Little Festival and Rave Day brands, which have held events across the UK and Europe, he and his team have brought a new and refreshing concept of partying to the scene. They strive to break down barriers, connect people, and create a festival-esque vibe, regardless of the venue or location, which generates truly amazing atmospheres.
As The Little Festival has continued to grow, so have Dan’s external opportunities and profile. With London bookings already at We Are Fstvl, Studio 338, Ministry of Sound, Egg LDN, Qube / Pacha, Fire, The Steelyard, Mangle and Great Suffolk Street Warehouse to name a few as well as at some key venues in Ibiza (Space, Sankeys, Cafe Del Mar, Eden), Thailand and India. Along his journey so far he has played alongside artists such as Carl Cox, Pan-Pot, Stefano Noferini, Fatboy Slim, Carlo Lio, Basement Jaxx, Audiojack, Hector, Flashmob, Oxia, Ninetoes, Claptone, Dennis Ferrer, Finnebassen and Pirupa amongst many others. The future is looking bright for this friendly, passionate and hard-working guy.
