DJ Dan (born Daniel Wherrett) is an American electronic house music DJ and producer.[1] Dan previously released works through the Moonshine label.

Early years[edit]

Wherret grew up in Lacey near Olympia, Washington. He began hearing electronic dance music at clubs in Seattle and Tacoma where Donald Glaude was playing. Glaude taught him the basics of turntablism before Wherret went to study fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles in 1991.

Dan played a few events with Ron D Core - the two of them released a series of mixtapes together, including some live mixes. DJ Dan has performed in music venues throughout North America and Europe as well as music festivals.[2]
