Daniel Wang: Biographie
Born in Northern California, Daniel Wang spent 8 years of his childhood in Taiwan, returned to California for high school, and attended university in New York and Chicago to study literature and languages. In his youth he imagined that he would follow an academic career. How wrong he was!
Obsessed with "the beautiful sounds of yesterday," Daniel started his innovative Balihu Records label in 1993. He moved back to NYC and worked 5 years at Dr. Sound Music Store, delving deeply into vintage gear and synths, including the Theremin.
Wang began producing for the Environ label in 1997 and for Playhouse in 1999. He has DJ'd and performed around the world, but he feels he is still just beginning. From his new home/studio in Berlin, Wang puts the world on notice: "With the spirits of Karen Carpenter and Clara Rockmore guiding me, here come classical-reggae and nu tech-disco for 2004!"
