D-Jaw is the alias Dan Bartholomew, a 34 year old DJ, Producer and Record Label Owner from London. Dan produces underground House and Techno but started his career as a DJ. His tracks reflect this and aim to create an impact, are usually bass driven and groove focused.
Dan is heavily influenced by the genres he grew up listening to, in particular US House and Speed Garage which had a grip on London's nightlife during the mid 90's. He tries to merge those genres with modern production techniques associated with current House and Techno.
Dan also has a lighter side and takes on a number of gigs pushing House and Disco. During these sets he plays House tinged with funk, his own edits of Disco tracks and original 80's Groove.
During his DJ career he have played at most of London's iconic venues, from seOne to Herbal, Ministry of Sound to Public life and numerous warehouse spaces along the way. He also spent a number of seasons DJ'ing on the Greek Islands.
In 2013 he launched his own label BYBL Records and has signed a number of artists from the UK, the US and Moscow. After taking a short break to create an album, Dan now has a number of releases lined up for BYBL and other labels whilst pushing his parties in London.
Watch out for his monthly BYBL Record label show on Hoxton FM which promotes artists and singers who are signed to the label and random talented people he has met along the way.
