There's isn't much Daniel Farley hasn't done in his home country (The Home Of The Lord Of The Rings: New Zealand)when it comes to DJ'ing. In just four short years he had forged his way from bright up and comer to one of the most talented & established names in the NZ scene.
This is perhaps earmarked in 2010 by being voted the #1 Electro-House DJ in New Zealand at the Nite:Life awards, the countries largest and most credible DJ awards.
But such an award doesn't describe full spectrum of Daniels sounds and influences, never one to pigeonhole himself into one genre, his upfront sound can range between in the early stages tropical-edged-tech to silky disco-tinged house, to finishing off a night on a more eclectic, driving and occasionally even chaotic tip. A true DJ's DJ though, Daniel excels at reading the dancefloor and fitting his signature style best to his audiences pleasure, and playing with energy and finesse that is well beyond his years.
This diverse range of musical knowledge and taste has seen Daniel and warm up and warm down, for an enormous array of the world's finest talent, supporting global superstars including Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, & Steve Angello to big-name party-starters like The Crookers, A-Trak , DJ Zinc to some of the coolest house producers of now such as Riva Starr, Bart B More & SOLO. In fact he has supported over 100 A-List internationals at festivals and events across NZ in his time behind the decks.
He has held down only the finest of residencies in his home of Auckland including a 3 year residency at the then-infamous CODE nightclub from 2006-2009, before being one of the driving forces behind new hotspot BE for the past 18 months, along with other top residents and promoters taking the club from humble beginnings at it's openings to playing cutting-edge music to in excess of 1000s every weekend. In addition he has played at every other premium club across New Zealand worth mentioning, and played across the ditch at top venues such as Prince, Chinese Laundry, Tank, Family World, Monastery, & Soho to name a few. Festivals and dance parties? He has done them all in NZ including Summadayze , Rhythm & Vines , Future Music Festival, We Love Sounds , Godskitchen, Ministry Of Sound , Deep Hard N Funky, and many more.
His own productions and remixes have also started going from strength to strength and are gaining international acclaim. His original productions have been played from DJs as diverse as Doorly to Renaissance Man, bigupped by the likes of Steve Aoki and the Round Table Knights and his debut release 'Airbag' was reviewed by the prestigious iDJ Magazine and rated 9/10 and a must have tune.
Also having collaborated with a range of top Australasian artists: Tom Piper, Danny T, Maya & Vanya, Chaos In The CBD, and Tim Corin under their Farley & Corin moniker, and remixed the likes of Kid Dub, Micky Slim, Magik Johnson, & Greg Churchill.
Already having releases on labels such as Vacation Records, Miami's Vertical Lift, and his own new imprint Bakehaus Records with fellow Tom Piper, things are only looking up and up production wise with many more hot collaborations and remixes set to drop over the course of 2010.

All in all, this Kiwi's name is on the up & up in every direction and has the goods to prove it, so though he may come from where the land where the hobbits happen to reside, don't underestimate - go see for yourself!
