San Francisco born DJ and Producer Maher Daniel has been gaining substantial recognition in the past few years in the techno and house scene. His career started to propel when he secured his first residency in his hometown of Montreal at the Stereo Nightclub, opening for some of the most recognized artists including Sasha, Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin.
Growing up in Montreal with Canada’s now seemingly ever growing underground scene proved to be the gateway to see some of the worlds best DJ’s at the cities venues every weekend. However it wasn’t until more recently the Canadian made the move to Barcelona, using the city as a base to grow his network and develop his career.
His first notable inception into the scene was with his release on John Digweed’s label Bedrock, with a remix of Tone Depths ‘’Rumblefish’’ which sat at No.1 for over two and a half months in the techno charts. This was soon followed by ‘’Big Bad Clay’’ which again went to No.1 in the Tech House charts along with his ‘’3rd Time Is A Charm’’ EP hitting No2 – both of which were released on Rejected.
After his release success on many huge labels including All Day I Dream, Bedrock, Get Physical, Leftroom, Rejected and My Favorite Robot, Maher has played at some of the best venues in the world from Fabric in London to Treehouse in Miami not to mention festivals including ADE and BPM.
Through his connections in Montreal and later moving to Barcelona, his friendship with the team at No.19 has now progressed into a working partnership. In turn Maher has released original tracks on many of the hugely successful No.19 compilations, his own EP’s, played with them worldwide and this year we will see him doing a remix for Art Department.
2015 looks set to be another year to look out for Maher Daniel, with a selection of remixes on some of the best labels in the business, and continuing to work with and support No.19 – expect to see much more from this talented Canadian producer. Read more
