Phuong-Dan’s all-embracing selection and boundary-breaking sets have earned him wide recognition in the most eclectic spheres of dance music. Almost two decades behind the decks of the Golden Pudel and a sincere passion for digging have made him a seasoned veteran of the all-goes DJing. He can swiftly move from melancholic new wave to unorthodox dark disco, exploring a never-ending dialogue between the DJ and the crowd. Never restraining himself to monotony – in or out of the dancefloor – he combines gigs all over the world with project specific works and musical programming. A good example of the latter are the Gatto Musculoso nights he hosts in Hamburg, which through the years have seen artists of every shape and size. (Claudia Franco)
