Dan Slater

Australian DJ and producer Dan Slater’s upbeat and chunky house sounds have conquered dancefloors around the world. With a refined talent for sculpting the energy of a party crowd, he draws from both the progressive sounds of the European club scene and the Latino fire of South America. Dan Slater has, over the years, built a unique, cross-boundary following, with fans in house music, circuit, tech, and deep house. He kicked off his career by winning the Sydney Mardi Gras DJ Spin-Off Competition. This outstanding feat propelled him to sets and residencies at major clubs and events worldwide, such as XLSIOR (Mykonos, Greece), WE Party (Madrid, Spain), SEXY (Cologne, Germany), FFF (Tel Aviv, Israel), The Week (Brazil), the Prism Festival (Toronto, Canada), or Angel (Shanghai, China). Dan Slater has commanded the DJ booths of major venues and celebrations in the United States, like the Winter Party Festival (Miami), the White Party (Palm Springs), Hydrate (Chicago), Joining Hearts (Atlanta), and the Zoo Party (San Diego). In the studio, Dan Slater has produced remixes for Cher, Ultra Nate, Britney Spears, Marcia Hines, and Carmen Elektra, to name a few. He collaborated with JimJam on his first release, “Minute Of You,” featuring soul diva Nalaya. Dan Slater subsequently released “Respectable” with Leomeo and Australian singer-songwriter Zoë Badwi, with whom two additional releases are in the works: “Sold My Soul” and “I’ve Been Waiting.”
