Two of America's most reliable house/funky-breaks DJs haul their wax (or Seratos) to Newport Beach's Tentation Ultra Lounge tonight. A protégé of Donald Glaude as a young man in Olympia, Washington, DJ Dan has been a West Coast fixture on the rave/swank-club circuit for over 15 years. Dan consistently ranks near the top in DJ Magazine's annual best-DJ polls.
The same goes for Glaude, who came up in Tacoma, Washington in the '80s and later served as a catalyst for Seattle and San Francisco's dance scenes. On the decks, Dan (now based in LA) and Donald (operating in San Diego) complement each other like Red Bull and Rockstar (trust me, you can never have too much energy drink in you at these events). They won't dazzle you with innovative cuts, but they will keep the floor moving and full with solid streams of hypnotic, hyper house and breaks tracks that have been tested worldwide for their effectiveness.
Here's some footage of the duo at the latest Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
