GENERAL BIO

MILLION DAN first exploded on the music scene as a kid – as part of the Heavyweight & Groundbreaking crew ‘THE DEMON BOYZ’.

DEMON BOYZ - HIP HOP CONNECTION
The group brought a fresh angle and energy to hip-hop music worldwide, delivering some huge singles & albums that won them some of the industry’s most respected awards. They toured large parts of the world performing alongside some of the biggest names the international scene had to offer from Dr Dre to Ice Cube. Eventually, after a couple of years – The boyz decided to go their own separate ways.

Million Dan’s new found freedom gave him the opportunity to pursue his solo dreams, working his way through the underground circuits of the UK, Europe, Canada & Jamaica, where he developed a MASSIVE following for his distinctive lyrical style.

Now, having gained international recognition and success, the last few years have seen Million Dan tour Europe & North America with some of the biggest names in the industry including Busta Rhymes, Jules Santana, Rock-A-Fella Records family & even Marilyn Manson!

Million then went on to start his own Independent Record Label ‘DAPPA RECORDS’.

Armed with a great team, the Label made a significant impact on the industry with Million Dan continuing to top the Radio & Video Charts.

As far as Single & Video releases go, Million Dan’s DOGZ & SLEDGEZ is now regarded as an ANTHEM & one of the biggest European hip-hop songs/Videos of recent years.

His follow up single ‘PULL UP’ had success on both sides of the Atlantic going straight into the Radio 1xtra chart at number two.

Million’s debut ‘INFRARED MIXTAPE’ received many rave reviews & was quoted by HIPHOP CONNECTION MAGAZINE as being ‘One of the hottest mixtapes ever to be released out of the U.K’.

He then followed with a consistency of hot singles, ranging from ‘MIC CHEK’ to ‘INNER CITY GOT PLENTY CASES’. “Salute Million Dan for dropping a song like this, at a time when the Inner City needs as much support as it can get” – DJ Shortee Blitz [Kiss FM]

Says Million: “After the tour, my next step was to embrace some long awaited collaborations with artists & producers I respected & wanted to work with, but never had the time..”

What followed was an array of high profile singles, videos & features starting with the Drum & Bass Smash ‘PAELLA / BLAZE IT UP’ (Rat Records).

With over 300,000 views on You Tube, Blaze it Up was produced by the brilliant DEEKLINE & ED SOLO.

Next up, Dubstep giant RUSKO dropped his colossal album ‘SONGS’ with a massive Million Dan feature on the album entitled ‘BE FREE’ (Mad Decent Records). This track caused huge ripples across the U.S with heavy rotation on many radio stations throughout the territory.

Since releasing Dogz N Sledgez, the fast growing MD fan base started heavily anticipating his next big hip hop track, so of course Million answered their calls by dropping an absolute MONSTER produced by the amazing Pete Cannon ‘AZ I KUM BAK’ (Dappa Records).

A collaboration with Flux Pavillion’s Circus Records had long been on the horizon, so when The MacMash Clan came calling via Circus, another huge anthem was instantly created entitled ‘JERICHO’.

Million Dan: “After a year of doing many big collabo work, we decided it was time to push another Dappa Records release..”. Two months later, his label dropped another bomb entitled ‘BASS CLAP’ which blasted into the charts & debuted straight at number one on MTV Base & MTV.co.uk! BASS CLAP’ went on to dominate the number one spot for three weeks in a row with its rear & simplistic style: Four sounds: A bass, a clap, a snare & a rimshot!
