Dan's client base continues to grow from strength to strength, this year working on events with Sony BMG, Jack Wills, BMW MINI, Live Nation and Selfridges as well as being the musical backdrop to the world's rich and famous. Madonna, P Diddy, Lindsay Lohan and The Saturdays have all recently partied to Dan's soundtrack.
A personal highlight for him this year was entertaining the VIPs backstage at London's Wireless and Hard Rock Calling Festivals headlined by Jay-Z and Sir Paul McCartney.Whether it's celebrity parties or exclusive fashion launches, Dan's creative programming and diverse music knowledge have enabled him to play to any crowd he may come across. From Hip-Hop to House, Rock to Pop and every thing in between Dan's unique and exciting DJ style is sure to get any party rocking.

Joao 'DJ Ace' started to connect with music from an early age. When he was just 14 years old, a friend introduced him to the decks at a house party. From that moment onwards he started to meet other DJs, learning from them and at 15 he was given the opportunity to play regularly in a local bar in his home town in the Algarve, Portugal.
He wanted nothing in return but to see the smiles and the moving feet of the people listening. Aged 18, he signed his first DJ residency contract and at 19 he progressed to the position of official DJ at Geckos Club in Vale do Lobo, Portugal where he played for 5 amazing years. In 2009, at 22 years old, he moved to London and was offered to play in some venues in Soho including the Exchange Bar where he was resident for a while.
Now he's proud to have played at some of the most prestigious venues in London including Mahiki, Public, Ladybird and The Roof Gardens amongst others, he also had the privilege of playing for Prince Harry recently at his private polo party. Always in a good mood, he makes each and every night very special and magical. With his unique and original way to mix, you're in for a treat with this amazing DJ!
