Biography

Daniel Wang was born in California but lived in Taiwan for eight years during his childhood. After returning to California for high school, Wang continued his education in New York and Chicago, studying psychology and literature. In 1990 he settled in New York City where he worked at a vintage synthesizer and record shop, as well as started his own record label Balihu in 1993. In addition, Wang has recorded for Playhouse and Morgan Geist’s Environ.

As both a DJ and a producer, Daniel Wang understands what does and doesn’t work musically. With a belief in simplicity, he places his focus on melody and texture rather than trendy production techniques or uninspired samples. Wang’s music strongly echoes Italo disco from the 1970’s and 80’s, but he is not hesitant to add modern touches. His sound made a perfect fit for Ghostly’s acclaimed “Disco Nouveau” compilation, to which he contributed the lead track “Pistol Oderso”.

Wang left the States in 2003 to live in Berlin, where he easily became part of the DJ community and enjoyed the political climate, pop culture, and gay atmosphere. His clubbing experiences there at venues like Ostgut and Cookies led to the release of the “Berlin Sunrise” 12-inch on Ghostly, which coincided with a brief tour in Japan.
