Newcastle-based DJ and Producer Dan Heale shares his uplifting new track, ‘TLC’ featuring Evalina, out now on all streaming platforms.
Delivering a fresh take on dance music, Dan’s music combines catchy pop vocal hooks with energetic sounds and summer energy. Speaking of the track, Dan says, “TLC is an uplifting and empowering summer anthem about having the confidence to make the first move and tell somebody how you really feel about them.”
I created this track with the talented Evalina. She wrote the song and recorded the vocals together with David Kisch. When they sent it to me, I couldn’t wait to work on the production side, and I finished the track straight away and sent it back to them the same day! TLC was a product of lockdown. We created a happy, euphoric and uplifting beat during a time of stress. It serves the purpose of turning negativity into positivity.”
Citing Avicii and Skrillex as his biggest influences, Dan has always had a deep-rooted love for music from a very early age. He took guitar lessons when he was a child, and also learned to play piano by ear. He first got into production when he was 18 when he discovered electronic dance music. He says, “I used to attempt to recreate sounds and music that I really liked, I remember going on YouTube and typing in, “How to make Avicii Music” and “What instrument makes Dubstep.” That was when I discovered I could produce my own music from my bedroom.”
Dan is also one half of the duo ‘Keepin It Heale’, his tracks and remixes have accumulated over 20 million streams across all platforms and have received support from the likes of Martin Garrix, Sam Feldt, Tiësto, BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, Kiss FM and many more.
