Akin to the mysterious sea anemone, Daniel Allen's sensibilities extend from deep underground straight up to the glimmering surface. Since his start in '89, he's had his tentacles in everything — 80s, drum & bass, house, techno, and all fusions thereof — giving his DJ sets a riveting, tactile quality.
Young junglist Dizzy emerged from Houston’s after-hours spots in the 90s. Then a decade later, with an entire record shop at his ngertips while working at Chemistry, a more cultivated Daniel Allen dove into production. For the last fteen years, he’s continued to mix his palette with unwavering meticulousness, garnering the support of labels Audiophile Deep, BluFin, Bush, Harmonious Discord, Panhandle, Whiskey Pickle, and several others. Within the last 5 years Daniel has caught the attention of Viva Recordings, Red Ant Records, Picknik, As.If, Staybad, Colour & Pitch, Beatamin, and Marinated Music. Still in scope’s view, and swimming deep in A&R, DJing, and a ood of remixes, collaborations and solo work, he’s inevitably delved into live performance — proving that Daniel Allen’s three-decades-deep passion continues to take him, and his listeners, to new frontiers.
Between steering the helm of mist record label Denied Music and studio work, he can be found at his multiple residencies at Plush in Austin, The Dive in Houston, and Techno Club in New Orleans.
