Drum & Bass
Hometown: Myrtle Beach
Dan Brady, known to the Drum & Bass world as Mixmaster Doc, has made a name for himself as a minimalist producer of electronic music in both in the U.S. and U.K.
With his first signing to Doc Scott’s legendary 31 Records, Mixmaster Doc, burst onto the drum & bass scene seemingly overnight. Humbled by the support of a who’s who list of A-list DJ’s such as Fabio, Marky, NuTone, Lynx, Commix, Grooverider, LTJ Bukem, Asides & Goldie to name but a few, he became focused on producing the old school sound that originally drew him in at age 13.
Born and raised in N.J., Doc spent most of his youth a slave to DJ culture, buying tapepacks, digging in the crates, and of course spending hours a day behind the decks.
Though Dan’s original career was to be in medicine — hence the name “Doc” — he couldn’t shake his overwhelming passion for drum & bass. His move to Myrtle Beach marked the pivotal moment where he gave up medicine and instead began to develop his trademark sound, a mix of cinematic atmospheres, classic drum and bass breaks, and earth shattering bass.
His most recent releases include “The Mayko EP”, which came out on Peer Pressure Recordings in 2010 and “The Cancellation Dub” released on Driven AM in 2011.
