Daniel Wagner Cash aka Northend was born into music. His cousins are musicians. His uncles are musicians. His mother isn’t a musician; but she may as well be. His father, Peter Cash, rhythm guitarist, singer, and songwriter for Juno Award winning band, Skydiggers; is a musician. His Grandmother, who attempted to teach him piano, is a musician. It is in his tree.
Spending his life surrounded by bands and instruments, Northend was waiting for his turn to take the reigns. At 17, a friend introduced him to electronic music through tracks like 'In My Memory' and 'Adagio For Strings' by Tiesto. This introduction was the catalyst for Northend. He had discovered a way to express his love for music in a whole new spectrum; it was unfamiliar territory.
At 21, Northend moved from Toronto, Canada, to London, UK, in an effort to immerse himself in the rich culture of electronic music that the city had to offer. Spending a year in a small room equipped with a laptop and headphones, he began developing his sound of melodic builds and massive drops.
In 2012, Northend signed with Provoke and released his first 2 singles 'Keep It Down' and 'Tabu'; which both charted on Beatport. Along with releases, Northend began filling support slots for the likes of Chris Lake, Michael Woods, Thomas Gold, Deniz Koyu, and Robbie Rivera. October 2012 saw Northend commence on a 10 date Canadian Tour alongside Chris Lake, Michael Woods, and TJR.
2013 sees Northend building on the foundation of his first year as a professional musician. The release of forthcoming tracks 'You & Me' with Jed Harper ft. Lincoln Blanche, 'Reverence' with Stereotronique, and 'Dancing In The Dark' with Yug, and tour dates across North America will make this fast rising artist one to watch.'
