Dan Krichel a.k.a. Dan McKinley was born in April 1984. He grew up in a musically addicted family that loved the sounds of the 80s. When Dan was 15, he started to edit sounds using his computer. In a few years he grew as a producer and made his first completed tracks with Fruity Loops and later with Cubase. He is a music addict.. he plays saxophone, keyboard and isn't afraid to play drums. At an age of 13, Dan started as a local DJ in a pub. When he was 16 he started to organize his own local house parties and got discovered by the DJ from local club "Drop Inn". This became his playground for launching his new music to the local audience and experiencing with new styles of music. He became resident with his alias "DJ Danny K". In that time he met (inter)national DJ's and producers that influenced him and triggered to work on his skills. In 2004 it was time to make a step forward and launched his new alias: Dan McKinley.
