Danny Drive Thru brings us a waxed out 7 of PURE FIREDOM - JAY SCARLETT Heartily bumpy rumbles - MR. SCRUFF Late night opium den vibes to the fullest - KUTMAH The name Danny Drive Thru may be one you have been hearing a lot more of recently and quite rightly so. The DJ, Producer (and thoroughly nice chap) has been having quite a busy 2011, with his music featuring on the Nihon Kizuna fundraiser compilation* alongside the likes of Kode 9, Onra and Slugabed, as well as the recent Finest Ego collection of UK and Irish producers**, which saw him in the company of such contemporaries in the beat scene as Flako, Kelpe, Om Unit and many more. He is topping it all off with this, his first solo release of original works, on the Mind On Fire imprint. Although production is now his main focus, Danny originally made his name as a DJ, playing everything from Jungle to Hip Hop at various underground nights in Manchester. However his skills behind the decks haven't gone un-noticed and he can be heard in clubs all over the country, and on occasion at the popular Hoya Hoya night, with whom he wowed everyone that saw him at this years Soundwave festival. Add to this mixes for Fulgeance's Musique Large blog *** and the Rhythm Incursions website**** amongst others and you can see he is a man in demand. His beats have been gaining wider acclaim this year too after his Virtua Rap single (Fat City) was picked up by such luminaries as Kutmah for his Stones Throw podcast and Thom Yorke, who not only featured the track in the Radiohead Dead Air Space chart but also in his set at the seminal Low End Theory in LA. The 7 is limited to just 300. In keeping with the ethos of Mind On Fire, special attention was paid to the artwork and this time round the eye catching sleeve design was painted by graffiti and stencil artist Tank Petrol.
