Scratching the Surface

Looking like the bastard son of Keith Richards behind the decks, Danny Howells more closely resembles a glammed-out rock star than a superstar house DJ. Howells, a native of Hastings, England, got his start more than twelve years ago and spent his formative years warming up crowds for John Digweed before developing his own signature style. Often described as "deepsexyfuturistictechfunkhouse," Howells's sound is as flamboyant and original as his image, garnering him massive acclaim in the club scene along with residencies in major hot spots from Holland to New York City. Stop by the Church this Thursday, April 7, to help him celebrate the release of his latest Global Underground effort, 24/7, a live recording culled from two distinct Miami sets.
