Biography

Danny Howells was born in the South East England town of Hastings in 1970. Howells’s first event DJ-ing came in the late 1980s and he began to perform at local clubs. In 1991, Bedrock founder John Digweed heard one of Howells’s mix tapes and invited Howells to join the Bedrock club nights. Howells traveled with Bedrock until they settled at the club Heaven in London. He would spend nine years as warm-up DJ for Digweed at Bedrock.

In 1995, Howells began producing experimental techno tracks with fellow Hastings native, Tim Cross, under the moniker Squelch. Over the next two years, Squelch produced several singles and attracted the attention of the record label Jackpot, who released what would be Cross’s and Howells’s final single together. In 1997, Cross and Howells split, though Howells stayed with Jackpot. Jackpot teamed Danny Howells up with Rob Green to produce a remix of React 2 Rhythm’s “Intoxication”. Howells performed for the first time outside of the UK, traveling to Holland for his first gig abroad, which gained him a large fan base there. Following his international tour, Howells signed with Dutch record label ID&T to create his debut mix album, Nightlife Report 1: Mick Boskamp Presents Danny Howells. Howells and Green continued to work together, including on a remix of Robbie Williams’s “South of the Border. Howells began to produce solo as well, taking on projects such as Ashtrax’s “Kafka” and BT’s “Dreaming”.

    for all fans of house music..you need to check out his sick mix 'Kiss100 19Feb06' that set is one of the best sets i have ever heard..the introductory sequence of tracks and the transitions between them would bring down any club in the world on any night guaranteed!
