Triple Dee - Hour 2
Triple Dee are David Dunne and Andy Daniels, two DJs with a long and shiny shared history in dance music . Both began buying and collecting music as kids and both of them began DJ-ing in their early teens. They both discovered House music on the floors of the Hacienda and the Number One club in Manchester though they didn't actually meet until they were in their 20s.
They first met on a packed dancefloor in a dark basement club called Equinox in Manchester in the early 90's and quickly realised that they shared similar backgrounds, musical tastes and daft humour, together with an overriding desire to get up behind some decks and rock a party whenever they could.
They became friends and then residents at one of the North West's longest running parties, 2KINKY which ran for over seven years. Individually , they also played all over the UK throughout the 90's at some of the biggest best and most notorious house nights.
In 2004 David Joined HED KANDI working first on their radio show then joining the DJ roster a year later. In late 2005 David was asked to bring on board another DJ who could deliver the music and vibe that Hed Kandi represented and he had no hesitation in getting Andy involved. Over the next five years, they became two of the best loved and most requested DJs on the team, and played at some of the world's very best clubs for the brand. Highlights included Space Ibiza, Cocoon, Pacha Nikki Beach, Miami and Queen in Paris.
Alongside their hectic DJ schedule, they also finally got into the studio in 2007 to start remixing Dennis Christopher's "Soulshakin'" and needing a name for the project, looked no further than their initials (though they felt that A.D.D.D. might not work too well!).
Since then, they have done 18 remixes for the likes of Simply Red, Cevin Fisher, Timmy Vegas, Warren Clarke and of course the Hed Kandi Classic "Fade" by Solu Music.
Their favourite DJ experience is when they play long sets back to back which they've done countless times since the 90's.
Last year, they began their own radio show, focussing on their kind of big room, vocal house and since March has already been picked up by 10 stations.
