Locals: Daniel Dabs Interview

Where can we find your music?



Who are you? How old are you?

My name is Daniel and I live in Zurrieq. I’m 23 years old.

What is your stage name?

My stage name is Daniel Dabs

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

I’ve been DJing for almost 7 years and after 2 years I gave producing a try and haven’t stopped since.

Why do you want to share your music?

I have always believed that music is a way of expressing yourself and by sharing my music I want to deliver an experience to whoever is listening.

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

I come from a varied musical background and because of this, I have picked up bits and pieces from quite a few different genres of music. I always had a passion for DJing and I got right into it the first chance I got. Along the way of learning how to play, I started to idolize a few DJs such as UVB, Len Faki and Slam. I have since moved to harder and faster techno as my podcast would show.

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

There are several local DJs who I enjoy such as Owen Offset, Acidulant, and Manthrax, each for a different set of qualities and sounds. There are other local DJs with very promising qualities but they’re almost never given a chance.
