Moodymanc has been causing quite a stir amongst the house community of late. Having previously released under the guise of Dubble D, Danny Ward now delivers house bombs as Moodymanc that are being championed by the premier league of DJ’s and music lovers. Previously Danny has worked with a wide range of artists including The Pharcyde, Rae and Christian, Ralph Lawson’s 20/20 Soundsystem and renowned jazz musicians like Gilad Atzmon and Jim Mullen.

His take on house music is deeply rooted in tradition having been into born into a life of jazz-drumming, crate diggin' and beat making via the night clubs, warehouses and basements of his soul loving, native Moody Manchester. Recent releases on labels like Tsuba, Third Ear, Dessous, and Connoisseur have meant Moodymanc’s tracks are being played by the likes of DJ’s Luciano and Claude VonStroke as well as being aired on Radio 1 by Derrick May.

Regular guest spots at clubs such as Fabric, Electric Chair and Studio B in Brooklyn serve to reinforce his presence on the international scene. Guesting alongside the likes of Ricardo Vilalobos, Francois K and DJ Sneak which means Moodymanc is up there with the best and his talents continue to blossom at every turn. Reading the crowd and building a groove is Moodymanc’s speciality which means his sets are always interesting, well timed and a spot on narrative of the best house music around.
