MILLION DAN first exploded on the music scene as a kid – as part of the Heavyweight & Groundbreaking crew ‘THE DEMON BOYZ’. The group brought a fresh angle and energy to hip-hop music worldwide, delivering some huge singles and albums that won them some of the industries 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 and Jamaica, where he developed a MASSIVE following for his distinctive lyrical style.
Now, having gained international recognition and success, the last two 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!
2006 saw the birth of Million Dan’s Independent Record Label: MILLION DAPPA RECORDS. Armed with a great team, the Label had 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 hip hop chart at NUMBER THREE. Million’s debut ‘INFRARED MIXTAPE’ (Released: February 26th 2007 on MDR) received many rave reviews & was quoted by HIP HOP CONNECTION MAGAZINE as being:
“ONE OF THE HOTTEST MIXTAPES EVER TO BE RELEASED OUT OF THE U.K.”
After dominating virtually ALL of the charts in 2007 with his Mic Chek / Spektrum Ride single, 2008 saw MILLION DAN immediately hit the major radio station play-lists with his follow up club banger ‘SCREAM OUT’. This massive song went on to win the CHOICE FM ‘BIG TUNE SOUND CLASH’ via live votes – Worldwide.
Finally, on August 18th 2008, Million Dan released his heavily anticipated debut solo album entitled ‘SPEKTRUM’. This album reached new heights & received the industries highest critical acclaim by being named as maybe the BEST Hiphop Album to be released ANYWHERE in 2008.
METRO NEWSPAPER: SPEKTRUM “BEST OF BRITISH”
MUSIC WEEK: SPEKTRUM “EXCELLENT… A KNOCKOUT!”
HIP HOP CONNECTION MAGAZINE: SPEKTRUM “ONE OF THE BIGGEST HIP HOP ALBUMS TO BE RELEASED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD FOR 2008/9”
Later that year, amid the ever increasing Inner City problems of gun & knife crime, he released the very powerful Single/Video entitled ‘Inner City Got Plenty Cases’.
DJ Shortee Blitz [Kiss FM]: “Salute Million Dan for dropping a song like this…at a time when the Inner City needs as much support as it can get”
After an exciting SPEKTRUM ALBUM tour of Europe, Million returned to the U.K & blasted out his next single release entitled ‘ACCELERATION’. This was another huge release for Million Dan during the late summer of 2008 which crossed new borders. Because of the styling of the Acceleration project / video, many computer gaming companies have now featured the track on their new titles. Clients include the heavyweight BASEDRIFT.COM.
DJ Ras Kwame [Radio1/1xtra]: “Acceleration is pure FIRE! This tune is next level & the video is PHENOMENAL – one of a kind!”
