As far as local DJs go, Danny Daze easily comes in as one of my top five favorites. Why? Because he is better than most DJs in the nation, and even better than most DJs who have come to rule the blog house "genre." But I sort of like that Daze is Miami's best kept secret, because I'd hate not to have him around as often. The man tours enough already, yet still manages to find plenty of time to spin at Aero Bar (his newest residency), and hang out at The Vagabond or White Room when he is just looking to have fun.
But I guess I should let Daze speak for himself -- or at least through the decks -- on how just amazing he really is. Check out the electro/breaks mix he and DJ Ash-Rock cooked up together titled Miami Subs - Mucho Beats Vol. 1.
Also make sure to check out John Hood's profile of Daze in this week's upcoming issue of the Miami New Times for a more in-depth look at the man behind the decks.
