Dani's first official release was "One Wish" for Shystie, on which she part co-wrote and sang backing vocals. "One Wish" was the lead single taken from the "Diamond in the Dirt" album, and was released through Polydor Records.[5] Other artist collaborations at that time include Plan B, and Wretch 32 on her own self-released music.[6][7][8] Through persistent underground releases on her own independent record label she eventually caught the eye of All Around the World Productions who signed her shortly after due to the popularity of her song, the self-penned "Take It to the Dancefloor".[8][9][10] Since then she has written and featured on a string of Electronic/EDM tracks for Michael Gray, Burns, AurA and Cozi Costi amongst others. "Chasing Shadows" for Michael Gray, championed in Music Week's Cool Cuts Chart, and "Every Emotion" [11] for AurA, were both Music Week Club Chart top 10s.

Other song-writing credits include: MTV's Awkward, "Born to Shine’ from the no.1 selling "SHINee World I'm your Boy Special Edition in Tokyo Dome" DVD for SHINee (Oricon Album Chart), "Honey Trap" for Jolin Tsai, the lead track from the best-selling female album Myself in Taiwan that year (Platinum status),[12][13] Kara on the top 5 selling album "A Girl's Story" (Oricon Album Chart), "Kiss The Rain" for Femm, touted as ones to watch for 2016 by the Huffington Post [14] - the album charted on the US Billboard World Albums Chart at no.10 and was described by the Huffington Post as "catchy and very cleverly written pop",[14]"Safety Net" for Lin Yu Chun, dubbed Taiwan's Susan Boyle [15] - also used as part of a governmental campaign for Peace in Taiwan, British rapper and BBC Radio 1Xtra broadcaster Amplify Dot, the top 10 dance single in France "Warrior" for Lumberjack feat.
