Hi, I’m Dan Morrell, as a Producer / DJ / Guitarist I help make music better then share it with the world! 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).
