DANIEL BELL (US)

Support:Yang Bing and Donald Summer

White Rabbit is back for a night of pure Detroit and Minimal Techno at its best. After the amazing night with Ben Klock the Rabbit brings a real legend from the States that will make the dancefloor explode at no other place than Yugongyishan. Daniel Bell helped build the Minimal Techno scene that is so popular today, so don’t miss the opportunity to see this one of a kind dj.

After years of being in bands and producing hip hop music, Daniel had a surprise success with his first 12′ released on +8 records while still in film school near Toronto, Canada in 1990. The record was “Technarchy” co-produced by Richie Hawtin and John Aquaviva, and it spurred a move by him to Detroit, Mi. After touring and recording extensively throughout 1991 and 1992, including a 38-date American tour opening for Moby and The Prodigy, Daniel left +8 to start his own company, Accelerate Communications in 1992.

With the overwhelming success of his “Losing Control” single (an international underground hit in 1994), Daniel set up Seventh City Distribution. For the next four years he worked to assist smaller Midwest labels to get distribution in overseas markets. He helped finance the start-ups of several labels including Anthony Shakir’s “Frictional” and Dopplereffekt’s “Dataphysix”. He also created three new labels – 7th City, which to this day releases cutting-edge techno music, Elevate (with then unknown house producer Theo Parrish) and Harmonie Park (originally with Rich Wade).
