About

Dan Elliot is originally from the East coast of Canada but made the move to Japan immediately after graduating from university in 1998. Four years after coming to Japan he opened the legendary Oasis Lounge in Osaka where he honed his skills and found his sound. From the incredible success of the “Oasis Lounge sound” came many opportunities for Dan. As well as having his mixes featured on world-famous Frisky Radio, his live sets came into great demand taking him all over Japan and Thailand. Following the success of Oasis Lounge, Dan started Oasis Radio which has come to be the most popular internet radio station featuring edm in Japan and “Progressions with Dan Elliot” continues to be one of the most listened to shows on the Oasis Radio schedule.

Having been a mainstay in the Osaka club scene for the past 10 years he has seen people, fads and music tastes come and go so he is no stranger to change. His live sound has progressed over the years from progressive house and tribal to tech house and techno. With this wide range of musical influences he never fails to bring that perfect mix of sound and vibe that always suites the party and gets people’s hands in the air.

Dan Elliot’s firm belief that music should be intelligent, inspiring and fun truly characterizes his passion for music and the way he plays. Enjoy the music!

    @Jeffrey Evan (Vital): Hey man, sorry I haven't been on SC lately to comment. Really like this mix as I was able, in my mind anyway, to stick to the theme that I set out on. This is what I'd want to listen to if listening to music was possible while scuba diving :) By the way, getting tracks together for Island Breeze 2. Would love to include a couple of your productions if that is cool.
