Danny Howells - Choice: A Collection Of Classics

Label: Azuli Records| Release Date: 1/30/2006

With 2005 having been one of the best years of Danny Howells career, it looks like 2006 may well be another if the impending release of his latest compilation project is anything to go by.

Following in the footsteps of such names as John Digweed, Danny Tenaglia and Jeff Mills, he has compiled two discs of his favourite tracks for Azuil's acclaimed 'Choice' series. As a DJ who's not afraid to embrace music in all it's forms, this album is not to be missed, and all the details on this forthcoming release due in January and comments about the album from Danny himself can be found right here.

The 'Choice' collections are fast becoming a who's who of influential figures. The series explores dance music's most famous DJs andwhat they consider to be their all time classic tracks. It's a chance for them to communicate their own music history and feature tracks that have inspired them over the years and formed the foundations of who they are today. The albums also feature the compiler's own exclusive re-edits that will only ever feature on these albums and nowhere else. For the next instalment enter Danny Howells, who is one of the few DJs on the scene today that truly has a style of his own - which includes his collection of loud shirts.

With his passion for music and infectious personality, Danny has created a unique, eclectic sound that has established him as one of the top DJs in the world. With over 12 years experience and a hectic touring schedule regularly takes him all over Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, he has become truly international. Like his dj schedule Danny's musical influences also stretch far and wide. He likes anything from jazz to rock, to pop and anything a bit bizarre and collects archive rock n' roll and funk footage from all over the world.

"There's not a lot I don't listen to. When I was asked by David Piccioni at Azuli whether I'd be interested in joining some of my musical heroes such as Jeff Mills, Tenaglia and Kevorkian in compiling two cds of my favourite records of all time, my response was quite simple. Dream come true! I don't think there's anybody out there who would turn this down - this is one of the most fun and exciting projects I've ever been involved in, and to say that I'm pleased with the result is an understatement." - Danny Howells

Danny has come a long was since his early beginnings Djing at Bedrock in his hometown of Hastings. Though his complete love of all music remains the same, he likes to champion his own special tracks and records that nobody else has latched on to and has a way of combining cutting edge grooves with crowd pleasing dynamics that enable him to connect with his audience making him one of the hottest DJs in the world.

"Along with a stack of the key tracks that influenced me during my first few years as a DJ, by legends such as DJ Pierre, David Morales and Todd Terry amongst others, I've also been able to include tracks that influenced me at an earlier age. Some of my all time favourite records are on here, Carly Simon, The Temptations, Iron Butterfly, and Orbital to name but a few. It's a very honest and personal selection, and I really hope people enjoy my Choice as much as I enjoyed putting it together." - Danny Howells
