DAN CURTIN

Mobilee Records - Berlin (DE)

Music is the Lifeblood of Dan Curtin. From his beginnings in early 1990s Cleveland, Ohio, to
current day Berlin, Germany, the pioneering DJ and producer continues to defy conventions and
push boundaries as an integral member of the mobilee records crew.

Taking original inspiration from the early eras of techno and electro, Curtin has experimented with
a vast number of styles, producing innovative stateside sounds of every variety. His fascination
with electronic music was sparked a decade earlier as he discovered the burgeoning hip-hop
movement, along with new wave, electro, and other sonic innovations of the 1980s. Further
futuristic explorations of house and techno prompted Curtin's own studio-based experimentations,
which soon became his primary focus.

Curtin's impressive discography dates back to 1992, with his first releases for Detroit's 33RPM
Records and Belgium's Buzz Records. He soon inked his own production hub, Metamorphic
Recordings, which remains actively committed to quality techno and electronica to this day.
Curtin's unwillingness to restrict himself to a singular style has been instrumental to releases such
as his albums Silicon Dawn, Web Of Life and Art & Science on Peacefrog Records, and for
influential imprints such as Strictly Rhythm and Sublime.
In 2003 Curtin shifted towards a funkier production sound, and his creative instincts urged him
towards the fast-paced electronic music scene of Berlin. This relocation triggered a string of well-
received releases for Tuning Spork, Klang Elektronik and Soma, followed by Pull Up, Dan's debut
for Berlin imprint Leena. The release marked a new chapter in Dan's musical career, as he
followed it with the trio of Other, Beat Fiend and Mr. Bean Do An E for Leena's sister label
mobilee records. The mobilee association was cemented with the release of Lifeblood in 2010, a
full-length opus that is as much a testament to techno's expressive potential, as it is to Curtin's
mastery of the form.

Over 70 singles, 9 albums and 20 years later, Dan Curtin is as innovative and vital as he has ever
been. All the while, he has cemented his international reputation as a DJ, appearing at many of
the world's best clubs, and ever aware of the vital give-and-take relationship between the DJ and
the dancefloor.

Dan Curtin is undoubtedly one of the key players in the development of electronic music as we
know it today, and now alongside mobilee, his vision, passion, and love of music will continues to
drive him in all that he does and all that will come.
