Dan Black hails from NYC with a sound that combines the best of hip hop, jazz and IDM (intelligent dance music). Influences include DJ Shadow, Squarepusher and the NYC jazz club scene. Dan Black's songs are layers of warm tones, crisp beats and electronic effects. Winter is the first official release on his label DystopiaPop, though look for more in the near future as he has produced over thirty unreleased albums ranging from Ambient and IDM to Jazz and Hip Hop, and everything inbetween. He is currently playing live laptop battle shows in the North East with Wataru Abe.
