Dan Westlake, aka Westlake72, is a London based producer, DJ, and conceptual artist. Westlake spent the 90's promoting his own house and disco nights at venues such as'The Brain' club in London's Soho, before moving behind the decks towards the end of the decade to spin an eclectic mixture of disco, funk, and boogie in both London and New York, including a summer residency at the legendary Lower East Side DJ haunt The Lotus Lounge. In the noughties Westlake developed a parallel career as an artist - exhibiting internationally sonic works, text pieces, and video installations. Since the turn of the decade Westlake has spent his time primarily focused on music production. Westlake’s sound borrows liberally from the history of dance music, merging disco,boogie and classic house elements to create his own contemporary sound palette. He namechecks 80's NYC post-disco producers Darryl Payne, Paul Simpson and Patrick Adams as his key influences.
