D.A.N. were formed in the summer of 2014 in Tokyo. Their unique and thoroughly modern sound, sitting somewhere between the minimal alt-pop of The xx and the live dance music dynamic of Caribou has won them fans throughout their home country, and an offer to appear at the prestigious Fuji Rock Festival in 2016 has been swiftly followed by the band opening for international artists including James Blake and Floating Points in Japan.
Late 2017 took the band to London, where they spent some time recording with Floating Points at his personal studio, appeared on Giles Peterson’s Worldwide Radio and performed at the legendary Hackney hipster haunt The Shacklewell Arms. With influences ranging from underground house and techno through to psychedelic and African music, the three piece are equally at home in the club as they are on a festival stage, and are being widely touted as the most exciting prospect to emerge from the Tokyo scene in many years.
