About Dan Morrell

14 years of DJ experience in Major Market radio has given me a unique perspective on what makes a hit, A HIT! Whether in the studio or in front of a live crowd, I capture the audience by presenting credible music with a pop sensibility.

Coming from a blue collar upbringing with no prior industry contacts my passion for all things music has led me on a path through CBS radio stations in Chicago and LA. Thanks to radio, I have been blessed with many “once in a lifetime opportunities” from performing at house parties for professional athletes, at private events for Mariah Carey, to stages in front of 60,000 people in 8 countries on 3 Continents and opening for over 20 A LIST Rock and Pop acts (see my 3rd person bio below if you’d prefer more name dropping).

After helping many DJs reach their potential in the industry through mentoring and with my book “Be A Top DJ in 10 Easy Steps”, my thirst for deeper involvement in the music industry prompted me to start my own record label, Mixmastered Records (which has had artist placements on the WB, MTV, and FOX), and my own production / mixing / mastering studio Mixmastered Studios responsible for dance remixes of top acts like Roscoe Dash, Akon, Flo-Rida, and more for major labels and countless productions for independents as well.

When I’m not working on music you can most likely find me indulging in some of my favorite things like Snickers Bars, In & Out burgers, The Chicago Bears, The Runyon Canyon in Hollywood and intense workouts (the later to reverse the negative effects of the former). If you want a good laugh from time to time I invite you to follow me on twitter @djdanmorrell or sign up for my newsletter on www.DanMorrell.com



DAN’S BIO IN 3RD PERSON
Formerly known as DJ Smurf, a pioneer of Euro and Progressive music in the Midwest, Dan Morrell can rock a crowd with the “best of em”! Whether Dan is in the clubs spinning at the best parties, on the radio releasing new material, or in the studio producing hits, he is constantly surrounding himself with new challenges and opportunities. Hard work is nothing new to The Mixmaster as he started his musical career in college as a campus favorite DJ. It was from his determination and talent to play the best music that he landed an internship at what was at the time branded as Chicago’s “Most Listened To Radio Station.” As an intern, Dan quickly learned the in’s and out’s of the entertainment business and knew he wanted to be on the radio.

When the opportunity came for Dan to work with B96, he fully embraced the offer. Since 2001, Dan’s mixes have been heard across Chicago on the B96 Streetmix and at the hottest nightclubs across the country. In 2010 Dan was asked to do ground breaking rock mixes for JACK-FM in Chicago which he gladly added to his list of duties. In addition to his 14 year run at B96, Dan’s CBS Radio experience also includes DJing events for the West Coast Top 40 powerhouse, AMP radio in Los Angeles (the home to media legends like Carson Daly) and is excited to bring his talent and high energy show to where ever the party is at!

He has opened for such acts as Kanye West, Diddy, Justin Timberlake, T-Pain, Akon, Rhianna, Shakira, Run DMC, Sean Paul, LL Cool J, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, and Missy Misdemeanor Elliott, to name a few. His impeccable reputation in Chicago has also opened other doors for him, like being the Chicago Bears’ exclusive DJ for their Official Tailgate Parties and Draft-Day Parties.

From his talent as a DJ and as an entrepreneur, Dan has since started Mixmastered Records. This new chapter in Dan’s life includes music production and collaborations with Chicago legend, Soundmaster T. With radio, TV, and film placements, this duo is ready to have everyone dancing to their original music and official major label remixes.

Author

In his How To Book for DJs, The mixmaster shares DJ tips and industry secrets that no other DJ would dare to share, complete with a step by step road map on how to “Be A Top DJ in 10 Easy Steps.” Time saving shortcuts based on knowledge compiled directly from the best DJs in the world make this book a must have for the entry level AND seasoned veteran jock.

Worldwide Touring DJ / Guitarist Dan Morrell
Accomplishing more in a few years then the average DJ does in their entire career isn’t enough for Dan Morrell. He now adds live guitars to the high energy party music DJ sets he is known for. He debuted this new concept in front of 25,000 people at the B96 2009 Summer Bash in Chicago which featured the Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO, Kelly Clarkson, Akon, and more. In less than three months after launching this concept Dan has been summoned to rock crowds in the US, Canada, and for the men and women of our military stationed in Japan with this amazing show.
