Danny Newbold, based in Preston, is an experienced House music DJ who has been plying his trade in the North West of England's underground dance music scene for over 15 years. Well versed in the history and roots of a subculture that just won't quit, his music library spans over 26 years and is ever growing.

His musical journey began at age 14 when he bought his first vinyl record, and he is still a keen collector to this day. A hobbyist at first, Danny stepped into professional club DJing in the late 90's playing local pubs and bars. In the summer of 2001 Danny landed a weekly residency at what was then called "Voodoo Lounge" in Preston, during which he caught the attention of local funky house club promoters GREEN and in January 2002 was placed as the resident DJ in their Pre-event Bar 'Base'.

The summer of 2004 saw Danny making regular appearances at Green whilst still retaining his Base residency, and was building a respectable reputation for his upfront music selection, innovative mixing and scratching and was soon in high demand with many local promoters.

In January 2005 he left Base to pursue new ventures with other venues but still continued to make regular appearances at Green. In the winter of 2006 Danny became the resident house music DJ at Preston's first after hours venue: 'The Loft', a brand new late-hours entertainment concept at the time whose early success and innovation served to further solidify Danny's reputation as the house DJ of the hour.

By 2007 Danny was living off his residencies, but was also starting to appear on the bills of larger venues and events alongside some of Dance Music's most iconic and influential DJs, producers and performers. September 2007 sadly saw Green shut it doors for the last time after over a decade of opening every saturday however in anticipation of the club's closure Danny co-founded and launched his own night called Happy Days pushing the early 90's piano sound or "oldskool" as its most commonly known. The night enjoyed much success in the early days and also brought Danny to the attention of a new audience.

In may 2008 Danny left the Loft and began a residency at Fives being alternated between its 3 levels each week a refreshing change from playing til 6am every saturday. Danny also took the baton from Green's original promoter Chris Nicol and began organising the Green reunions. In 2010 Fives sadly closed due to the recession hitting Preston with weekly DJ slots thin on the ground, Danny started a monthly residency with Abstrakt In 2011 after a decade of maintaining local residencies Danny left Abstrakt to focus more attention on the "oldskool" scene which was in the mist of a huge revival.

As old habits die hard in September 2012 Danny started another residency for a night called Peachy in Blackpool pushing the funky house/disco vibe reminiscent of Green.

More recently Danny has been moonlighting as the scratch DJ for Davos, who shot to fame in 2012 when a youtube video of him playing a medley of "Oldskool" piano anthems went instantly viral. To date the pair have appeared at some of the UK's most prestigious events, Glastonbury, Beatherder, Solfest, Reminisce to name but a few.
