Despite the 305 being a transatlantic house and techno mecca during WMC, we hadn't really spawned any major local stars on that scene. Until March 2011, when a demo by local wunderkind Danny Daze (AKA Daniel Gomez) made it into the bags of the right DJs and earned instant, massive acclaim.
That track, of course, is Danny Daze's "Your Everything," a darkly sexed-up floor bomb with a walloping syncopated bassline and sultry love-drunk vocal hook. Exactly the kind of sound that's ruled international dancefloors all year via Jamie Jones's Hot Creations, which would release the EP in June.
"Your Everything" -- along with its equally massive B-side, "Fall Away From Love" -- made it to the top of the Beatport deep house chart, also becoming Pete Tong's Essential New Tune on BBC Radio 1.
But most importantly, it catapulted our homeboy Danny Daze to the forefront of the international scene.
