As a prominent figure in music, Dani Deahl has been at the forefront of artist discovery and meaningful industry change for over a decade. She currently is a DJ, producer, and public speaker, holds an editorial position with DJ Mag, helms YouTube series The Future of Music, and is a Governor for the Recording Academy. When performing, she blends trap and house to create bass-forward sets that are technically savvy and high energy.

As an artist herself, Dani has released trap, twerk, and hard-hitting house with labels like Dim Mak, Monstercat, Flamingo, Cr2, and Armada. She has also been the subject of two documentaries, toured extensively across the globe, played festivals like Spring Awakening, Lollapalooza (three times), and EDC, venues like Wrigley Field (with Fall Out Boy), hosted her own terrestrial radio show in Spain and the Canary Islands, and has been an official Red Bull DJ. She has headlined with or been direct support for artists like Alison Wonderland, Valentino Khan, Krewella, Diplo, Steve Aoki, Pegboard Nerds, Baauer, and countless others. As Diplo himself says: "She's awesome." She is the host of newly minted YouTube series, The Future of Music, which features stars like Imogen Heap and Oak Felder, producer for Kehlani and Demi Lovato.

Dani has been heralded for her impact in music by MTV, THUMP, Oxygen, Billboard, Nest HQ, Magnetic, Yahoo, Complex, Chicago Tribune, and many others. She's also a prominent expert on the topics of gender equality in music and marketing for musicians, with engagements at TEDx, Oberlin College, Miami Music Week, Movement festival, Macworld, Camp Spin-Off, Ableton Loop, Red Bull Hack The Hits, an official Twitter Music Q&A, and more. She's not only consulted on creating branding initiatives for labels and artists, but has been instrumental in breaking new artists like Crywolf and Louis the Child. In fact, she has a history of doing so, credited with being the first to tap acts to watch such as The Chainsmokers, The Knocks, Dillon Francis, Louis The Child, and Flosstradamus. As of 2018, Dani is also an elected Governor for the Recording Academy, engaging in outreach and professional development for the dance music community.
