Daniel W. Best

At a time when djing is less about connecting with music lovers and more about branding, play counts and frequent flyer miles, Daniel W. Best’s approach is so straightforward that it’s almost groundbreaking: an egoless passion, a fine-tuned ear and most important, an open mind with good taste. Although he prefers to call himself a music activist rather than a DJ, Best has over two decades of experience behind the decks, getting crowds onto their feet whether he plays jazz, soul, reggae, rare groove, disco or house – sometimes all within the same set, always on vinyl. Rooted in Berlin for over 20 years, he has established residencies at Cookies (R.I.P.) and Bar Tausend and organizes a variety of special parties and one-off events also incl. the yearly X-Jazz Festival in Berlin, Kreuzberg.
