Dan Slater is an Australian DJ/Producer based in Sydney. After years in the club scene as one of the most in demand dancers and show producers, Dan’s love of music eventually lured him onto the decks – and this new chapter has gained him the attention of promoters and clubbers around the world.

He kicked off his DJ career as winner of the Sydney Mardi Gras DJ Spin-Off Competition. Since then he has gone onto sets and residencies at some of the best clubs and parties in Australia including Daywash, Beresford Sundays, BEYOND, The Emerson, Stereosonic, Home Nightclub, Hugos, Connections (Perth), Room Service, Gigolo and Halloween Whores. A recent highlight included supporting Sneaky Sound System at a secret event.

With a hot sound to match his hot looks, it’s no wonder Dan is being talked about as the next big thing on the international DJ scene. In just over a year, Dan rocked dance floors across the country – and at every event he was immediately re-booked. His upbeat chunky house sound brings a European energy to his sets – Dan proves himself extremely adept at reading a dance floor and adapting the vibe to the crowd.

Dan completed his first European tour in 2013, that saw him spin at clubs in Frankfurt, London, Paris, the legendary Paradise Club (Mykonos) and Copenhagen. 2014 saw a jump in Dan’s profile – having headlined the Hordern Pavilion at Sydney Mardi Gras, PAPA Party (NYC and Sydney), Big Gay Day (Brisbane) and Big Gay Out (Perth). An epic three-month tour quickly followed seeing Dan playing clubs and events in New York, Tel Aviv, Denver, Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, Beijing, Shanghai, Nice, Mykonos (XLSIOR Festival), London, Munich, Paris, Milan, Dubai, Singapore and Bangkok.

Killer years followed in 2015 and 2016, with Dan spinning at various global events, including: Winter Party Festival (Miami), White Party Palm Springs, FRESH at Greystone Manor (LA), Hydrate (Chicago), Matinee (Las Vegas & San Diego), The Week (São Paulo), and a return tour of Asia and Europe. 2016 has started with a bang with Dan headlining The Beach Party for Winter Party Festival (Miami), spinning at The Manor (Fort Lauderdale) and returning to White Party Palm Springs and Hydrate.

Dan’s foray into the studio for production has seen him produce remixes for Cher, Carmen Elektra, Britney Spears, Paulini, Ultra Nate and Marcia Hines.

2017 looks to be even more exciting with many dates confirmed for North and South America and Europe, including White Party Palm Springs (www.jeffreysanker.com) and Matinée Las Vegas (www.matineevegas.com).
