As the DUSTY FINGERS series progressed, I'm sure we were all blown away by BEAT MANN's never ending collection of rare and hard-to-find break beats. And I KNOW for a fact that that series of LPs set off a thousand and one collectors in search of some the joints used on there. No longer were funk, jazz and soul the genres of choice - BEAT MANN made people realise that we should be checking EVERY section of your local record shop because a dope drum break can appear in the most unlikeliest of places. DANNY DAN opened our eyes wide to other musical genres, and also to different countries who also had the "funk" going on in their musical history, and for that we should all thank him. Check out our interview with DANNY DAN from 2008 right here.
If you wanna get more familiar with the man they call THE BEAT MANN, then check out his new BANDCAMP page where you can listen to a whole selection of classic DANNY DAN mixes. Have a listen to a few of these and you will understand where the man got his name from. Big respect to DANNY DAN THE BEAT MANN.
