Biography

Being called god by fans is not something that happens to every DJ. Nor that people have named their new born babies after them. DJ Dano, a.k.a. Daniel Leeflang, has had these honours many times which clearly illustrates his outstanding popularity. Twenty years ago, this living legend could not have even imagined that he would grow to be one of the leading DJs in the hard dance scene.

In 1984 Dano started to DJ for several local pirated radio stations in Amsterdam. Two years later he became a journalist for a newspaper for young people, where he wrote about music and going out. One night he decided to visit the Roxy discotheque where pioneer Eddy de Clerq would be playing. Now being a great fan of The Police and Madness, Dano was very sceptical about this whole new scene called dance. Four hours later, sweaty and tired, he realised that he had be dancing non-stop. “After my experience at the Roxy, I realised that I was sold and that electronic music was my calling.” And on that night, Dano was incurably infected by the ‘acid virus’. From then on he got his own show called ‘Acid Explosion’ on a local radio station and soon after that became a resident DJ at the Mazzo club.

In 1992 the dance scene exploded on a massive scale. During a colossal house party in Utrecht, Dano performed with his colleagues Buzz Fuzz, Gizmo and the Prophet.
