About Danny Intro:-
Drum and Bass Fan // Raver // DJ // Promoter from Cheshire UK.
Danny has been interested in music from an early age, watching "Top of the Pops" every Friday night and buying the latest chart releases on cassette tape. The first single he ever bought being The Offspring - 'Why Dont You Get A Job' and the first album being Vegaboys - 'The Party Album'
Spending hours regularly creating his own mixed cassettes to listen to a walkman or Sony cassette player...
At 15 he was introduced to Drum & Bass after a friend acquired a cassette tape of DJ Hype with MC GQ.
After watching the The Prodigy live at Manchester's M.E.N Arena in November 2005, Danny knew me wanted to start performing..
Named himself 'Intro' due to a huge love for them.
First buying a pair of 'Home-Mix' CDJs , Danny soon realised he had a passion for mixing and in April 2007 bought his first pair of vinyl decks.
In March 2008 he bought Technics 1210's and soon built-up a large vinyl collection buying a various amounts of bulk Drum & Bass.
After practising with friends for hours every day in May 2009 he played his first gig at Opus, Printworks, Manchester with 'Oh My God!' a Manchester based Drum n Bass / Jungle / Dubstep event.
So then in August 2009 Intro joined Oh My God! as a promoter for the event, handing out flyers, putting up posters all around the North-West aswell as DJing regularly at the event.
Describing his style mixing style he said "I'm not the tightest mixer out there, but think I play a good selection of tracks, lets say.. dance-floor with darkness"
2010 see's his Darkest Mix to date 'Get Some' with tunes from Calyx, Friction, Kyriptic Minds & Leon Switch and many more.
Over the summer Danny starts work on production with friend Danny Coe and releases two more mixes 'Make Love, Not War' and 'Retrotip' which can be found on Mixcloud:- http://www.mixcloud.com/DJDannyIntro/
In August 2010 Danny started his own event 'RippeR' in his home town of Altrincham at 'The Flamin' Galah aka. Bondi after a successful birthday party. Getting a good reception from the local crowd the venue asked RippeR to return with the first two nights being ones to remember with local DJs and producers Meecha, Wobbie & Darka as head-liners.
Broadening his mixing techniques now occasional mixing Dub-step, Breaks and Grime, Intro progresses his sound now using 3 decks (2 vinyl decks and a CDJ).
