Biography Daniel Mehlhart
Daniel Mehlhart was born inBasel,Switzerlandin 1986 and raised up in a suburb ofFrankfurt am Main,Germany. His parents are musicians, so it was given that he would play some kind of instrument. He started playing the drums at the age of 12 for about 6 years. In this time he got in touch with electronic music by listening the ‘Clubnight’ on HR3 radio.
Fascinated by this kind of music, he bought his first set up at the age of 16 and has been spinning now for almost 7 years. Nowadays Daniel Mehlhart is busy in producing electronic music. His series of releases started on the netlabel FOEM-Crema in spring 2006 followed by a 4 track 12″ on the UK Label ‘Evolved Recordings’ and a release and on Netherlands imprint ‘Manual Music”. After he did two highly acclaimed records on “Karmarouge Records” in Cologne, Daniel moved along doing two releases on Neutonmusic, and now his second strike on Berlin based ‘Kindisch Records” hit the stores in February 09. Furthermore he did his first Remixes for DJ T on Kindisch and Fausto Messina on WIR Records and on lately on Get Digital. On WIR, Daniel released another 12″ in Summer 2009. For 2010 Daniel already finished releases for Movida Records, WIR, Touched Recordings, Kindisch and on Gabriel Ananda’s new Imprint Basmati.
Daniel Mehlhart loves to seduce the party crowd to dream, dance and love with his productions and DJ sets. Warm deep rolling basslines are the most important stylistic device. They transmit this kind of funk and sexiness in sound, which let you dance smoothly over the floor. When he started to go out, he always was into the queues before the club opened. To catch the full range of tension in a set is and was elementary for having a great night. In his sets one always finds this tension, which mainly results out of long build-ups. In some cases you can even find some freckles of humour and irony. On the one had it may sounds serious and lost in deepness, and on the other hand its sometimes just an exaggeration of a cliché. Fine arranged melodies from multiple sound sources do the rest to get an impression of what he considers to be good, electrifying electronic music.
2011 he started his own label notes.
With his DJing adventures so far, Daniel is mainly spinning minimal and Techhouse tracks but also some deep, funky house tunes in his sets. It’s always the groove that makes him move …
