Biography

A versatile DJ, Dan Soulsmith can cater for any party or club night!

Dan has hosted and played warm-up sets for some of his biggest inspirations, artists such as LTJ Bukem, MC Conrad, A Guy Called Gerald, Norman Jay, Greg Wilson & Nicky Siano.

As his DJ name suggests, whatever the genre, Dan's music must have soul!

Playing oldskool classics, right through to the freshest jams, Dan draws from the following crates:

- Deep House & Techno, Deep D&B / Jungle.

- Soul, Funk, Disco, Jazz-Funk, Electro-Funk, Hip Hop & R&B.

- Jazz, Latin, Afrobeat, Reggae & Ska.

- Chilled Balearic Pop, Rock & New Wave.

As this list illustrates, Dan is comfortable DJing right across the board. His knowledge of the roots of dance music informs his selections, Dan constructs engaging sets that keep everyone guessing.

A jobbing DJ, Dan has clocked up 20 years worth of experience playing music in many Manchester and Liverpool night spots.

His passion for DJing is also evident through working with Wedding Jam, with over 50 weddings under his belt, Dan liases closely with clients, to tailor unique and alternative soundtracks for such special occasions.

In his own time Dan, specialises in deep-rolling Drum & Bass; now in its 9th year, he proudly hosts his weekly Northern Groove D&B Show on BassDrive, the worlds most listened to online D&B station.

So from underground sounds, to popular chart hits, Dan is happy to play good music that fits and has feeling.

Reviews

Working with wedding jam for our big day was amazing. The whole experience from start to finish was relaxed and easy. Naomi and Dan were quick to reply to us and help us with the build up to our wedding. The actual wedding day/night was perfect and Dan was the perfect DJ. Everyone was on the dance floor all night, we were able to do our own playlist and also let guests request songs. Dan really set the mood and played songs for all ages to get up and dance. Thank you for making our wedding day so special and memorable. Adele & Lori

Dan went out of his way for our Indian wedding and mixed together a great selection of tracks that we picked. We had so many compliments from guests weeks after on the music and especially how he kept everyone up on their feet all night long!
