Growing up in New York, Danielle Nicole was first influenced by techno music in the late 90's during a legendary era when dance music and club culture were rampant in New York City.
Nightclubs like the Tunnel, Limelight and Sound Factory spawned an inspiration that she could not ignore and in 2005, Danielle translated fifteen years of classical music theory/performance training into djing and was immediately recognized as a forceful new talent in the industry.
Known for her unique minimalistic take on techno, Danielle's presence as an artist cannot be ignored. Intense bass and dark animated synths are sprinkled with percussive detail and idiosyncratic sounds reeking havoc on the dance floor. Danielle first introduced her sound to New York club goers at venues like Cielo, Sullivan Room and Pacha before spreading her musicality globally. By now, she has engaged techno lovers in cities all over the United States, Central/South America, Middle East and Europe, including the techno capital of the world, Berlin, where she currently resides.
Despite a hectic calendar, Danielle is insistent about making time in the studio. Since releasing her first EP in 2008, she has released records on various labels including Little Helpers, Fantastic Friends, What Now Becomes, Frequenza, Neurotraxx, Minitec Series, IRMA and Klectik. Danielle has remixed and collaborated with top techno artists including Someone Else, Matt Star, Dilo, Pablo Denegri, Alland Byallo, Jonny Cruz and Francesco Assenza. Her next EP will be released on NOSI Music in September and upcoming releases include a collaborative project between herself and vocalist April White on popular toronto label My Favorite Robot, a vinyl release on the newly launched Sullivan Room Records and remixes for Werner Niedermeier, Less Hate and Derek Marin.
