Danny Holloway was bitten by the music bug at the age of 5, when he constantly played his parent's 45s collection. Holloway was raised in Long Beach, Cali, played in bands through his teens and moved to London at 20. Danny wrote for the NME music weekly just as it was entering its rebirth in 1972/3. In December of '72, the Rolling Stones invited him to Jamaica to cover the recording of their Goats Head Soup lp. Shortly after his Jamaican trip, Danny joined Island Records' London office, reporting directly to Island's founder Chris Blackwell. DH worked extensively with Jamaican music, including 3 Bob Marley albums. Danny recorded Bob Marley & the Wailers Live album with No Woman No Cry and assembled albums by Jimmy Cliff, The Meters, The Maytals; as well as producing the Heptones' Night Food album. Danny then moved back to LA and produced punk bands before returning to Island as head of Soundtracks, VP of music publishing and doing A+R as well. He was involved with 4 different projects which sold over 5 million copies: Marley's Live lp, Sir Mixalot's Baby Got Back, Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love and Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise. Danny left the mainstream music biz in 1996 and in '97, he began DJing. In 2007, he joined Dublab, the LA based DJ collective and has contributed over 40 mixes to the site, plus put out a commercially released mix CD thru Dublab titled Shots Fired. Holloway has promoted the popular club night Blazing 45s since 2012, featuring guest DJs Kenny Dope, Rich Medina, DJ Scratch from EPMD, Dam Funk, Natasha Diggs, Peanut Butter Wolf, Boogie Blind, etc. Danny also co-owns the popular reissue 45s label, Ximeno Records. His personal record collection was over 50,000 pieces before he trimmed it down to essential cuts. He has performed DJ gigs for the TED conference, many boutique hotels and Damian Marley's Welcome To Jamrock Caribbean Cruise.
