DJ Self Help
Self Help has been bending the barriers of dance music as a DJ/Producer/Multi-Instrumentalist for the past 12 years: In the beginning it was mixing Hip Hop records and jacking for beats on Fruity Loops until the hobby gradually expanded into a career DJing the infinitely open-format "Dance Or Die" & "International Dance Night" parties across Ohio and experimenting with Tropical Bass, Bmore Club and House influences in his records.
From there, after DJing virtually every type of dance party & function one could possibly imagine in Ohio (the spelling bees at Macy's & vegan cooking workshops come to mind), Danny found his signature sound and took the party train all the way to New York City where his eclectic endeavors in dance music (both as Self Help & the more recently formed "Love Taps" alias) have been featured multiple times on Diplo & Friends (BBC Radio 1 xtra), Sway in the Morning (Shade 45 Sirius XM) & the legendary KCRW FM Radio Station in Santa Monica.
Self Help currently continues this mission with undying enthusiasm, travelling all over the country to play opening sets for heavy hitters like Major Lazer, RJD2 & Rusko & releasing music on labels like Main Course, Top Billin' & Teenage Riot (Bird Peterson & JFK's imprint). Like Danny's wide array of influences, the possibilities for the future of this multi-faceted young musician appear to be limitless as he continues to assert "proof that the EDM renaissance can't be reduced to big dumb onomatopoeia" (Chris Deville, Stereogum).
