While keeping in step with his own brand of dark and sexy House, Montreal DJ Danny Torrence believes that all good records should be mixed regardless of the genre. It is this instilled belief that allows Danny to uplift, inspire and rock the dance floor like few others. Danny’s artistic vision is exceedingly broad, touching on many different styles including deep house, tribal and techno. All of these elements combined are what makes Danny’s fans describe him as “powerful and eclectic”.
In 2004, Danny Torrence became a resident at the internationally acclaimed after hours Stereo Nightclub in Montreal, leading up to his first extended set to the delight of his fans and newcomers alike. The party was “Dirty 30”, a monumental occasion for Danny as it created much deserved recognition from his fans and peers alike. As one of three local Montreal DJ’s to behold a Stereo Residency, Danny plays alongside greats such as David Morales, Victor Calderone, Hector Romero and DJ Vibe, just to name a few. Stereo is also the stomping ground for his own night: Climaxxx, a smashing bi-monthly where Danny takes his fans on an all night journey.
Torrence also holds a monthly residency at Red-Lite, one of Canada’s longest running after hours that has been pumping for 11 years and counting. Undeniably impressed by Danny’s unparalleled sound, Red-Lite chose him to represent the compilation that is third in the club’s series, “RED-LITE SERIES 3 mixed by Danny Torrence”. “Everything from house to the deeper stuff had to come across on this CD. When I play, I want my sets to be seamless. The music can travel anywhere from the peak-time stuff, to a set’s deeper & sensual moments.” Montreal’s most prestigious clubs can’t get enough of Danny’s full throttle beats, which is why he not only maintains some of the most wanted after hours residencies, he also still finds time in his busy schedule to hold residencies at House Night Club and Unity.
Danny’s passion for music and his hard work earned him an invite to Bal en Blanc 2006 (White Party), held annually to 15,000 punters in Montreal, to work his dance appeal amongst some of the hottest DJ’s in the world today (Deep Dish, Peter Rauhofer, David Guetta). His unique vibe set the stage for his innovative set at Resolution, New Year’s Eve 2006, at the Bell Centre in Montreal. This massive production put on by Godskitchen & Bal en Blanc which included among others, heavy hitters such as Tiesto and Victor Calderone, was an amazing start to the year for him. Danny was asked to step in at the last minute to fill Tiesto’s slot rather than close the party as he was originally asked and was received to rave reviews…. Give this man a room and he will work it!
2005 was a banner year for Danny on an international level, as he maintained gigs in clubbing hot spots such as Ibiza, Miami and Sicily, where he played alongside DJ superstar Paul Oakenfold. Danny also grooved his sweet and sexy sound at Crobar (NYC), Asseteria (NYC), Sonic (Toronto), Fly (Toronto), Rise (Boston) and Terminal (Quebec City). The goals are set very high for Danny Torrence, who aside from his residences at the hottest clubs in Montreal and traveling the world over, is focusing on production in 2007. Danny is living proof that if you love what you do and feel it deep inside, there are no boundaries. With an open mind and an intuition that embraces music for what it is, we’re all staying tuned to see what’s next!
