Daniel V originally from Medellin, Colombia is a DJ and musician known for playing house music,
with latin and jazz influences. During his early life, he was exposed to these native latin sounds including
Salsa, Merengue, Tango and the traditional Colombian folk music. DV grew up in a home where music was always
appreciated, respected, and enjoyed. At the age of 8, Daniel V started his musical journey by taking piano
lessons. After years of honing his talent, he landed a spot as a pianist in a local band where he performed
at various events and locations around Medellin. In 1999, DV and his family moved to Boston, MA. As he
adapted to his new life in America, his success as an accomplished pianist eventually led him down a
completely different path: he was now destined to become a DJ. As DV began spending countless hours in local
record stores, local bars and clubs, and networking with local DJs, his passion for house music quickly
transformed into a career.
The Palace Nightclub in Saugus was not only one of DV’s first residencies, but it was also the venue that
allowed him to truly command a crowd and showcase his skills behind the decks, setting him apart from many
other DJs, past and present. Consequently, this experience catapulted his entire career, and he was
eventually touring all over the United States playing alongside Bad Boy Bill, DJ Sneak, DJ Dan, David
Guetta, among many others. He performed at venues such as WMC, Ultra, Space Terrace, On Broadway, The End Up
and many other stages that most DJs could only dream of. In addition, DV spent a considerable amount of time
playing in Chicago, where the original house music sounds are from and still influence his sets to this day.
With 20 years behind the decks, DV delivers nothing but infectious beats with energetic high hats permeating
any dance floor. DV truly understands the meaning of DANCE music, as you will never see any of his crowds
not moving. This speaks to DV’s true mastery of what it really means to be a DJ.
