Daniel Wang makes and plays gleaming, disco-influenced music that draws inspiration from early house and techno. Born in California, he spent seven years of his childhood in Taiwan before heading to New York to work in instrument and record shops. Sick of the changes to the city's artistic scenes post 9/11 he quit the States for Berlin in '03 and hasn't looked back. Wang takes his music seriously. He used to be obsessed with making a good bassline and is now concerned with structure and composition. Wholesale sampling and loops are serious no-no's, ruling most hip hop and techno out of bounds.
In his lecture at the 2006 Red Bull Music Academy, Daniel Wang talks magic, mathematics and movement.
