The legendary DJ Star, Danny Howells, will be featured at the 2016 Black & Blue main event
The BBCM Foundation is proud to announce, for the first time at the Black & Blue, one of the global giants of the House music scene, legendary British DJ Danny Howells. He will take part in a special extended set.
Danny Howells, Unique and Legendary
Native Londoner (UK), his music is often described as belonging to Progressive House, although he prefers positioning himself closer to Tech House and sometimes being referred to as Progressive. He created his Dig Deeper label in 2008 and describes himself as Deepsexyfuturistictechfunkhouse.
Danny is one of the few DJs on the scene today that truly has a style of his own. With his passion for all styles of music and infectious personality, Danny has created a unique, eclectic sound that has established him as one of the most renowned DJs in the world
Other DJs on the line-up lasting 12 hours (10 pm to 10 am) include so far :
- Ian Key (Montreal), a rising DJ well known in Montreal and Toronto;
- Alain Jackinsky (Montreal), now a featured DJ everywhere, a Montrealer very popular in the Gay Party Circuit, in the Americas, and abroad;
- Morabito (NYC), a well-known DJ in the U.S. gay circuit, back after her flamboyant gig at the 2015 B&B 25th anniversary.
A DJ from the local scene (to be announced at a later date) will kick off the festivities at 10 pm. Another international DJ and/or singing star will likely be announced in the coming weeks.
