ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Scottish born and Berlin based DJ/Producer Danny Berman (aka Red Rack'em/Hot Coins) has had a pretty hectic last few years. After bursting onto the scene in 2009 with his smash hit remix of ‘Stand On The Word’ by Joubert Singers, he performed at the Radio 1 Worldwide Awards, Snowbombing, Garden Festival, Glastonbury and The Big Chill as well as releasing massive house and disco records on record labels including Tirk, Untracked, Home Taping and Undertones. Danny is also an acclaimed remixer for artists such as Tricky, Jazzanova, Joubert Singers, Wave Machines, The Revenge, Ron Basejam and his Smugglers Inn radio show/podcast regularly pulls in thousands of listeners around the globe with upfront selections and guestmixes from the likes of Greg Wilson, Rick Wade and Andy Blake.

In 2010, Danny began the year with the deep house smash ‘In Love Again’ on Untracked and then launched his own label Bergerac with ‘How I Program’, which was a cross genre smash and supported by a wide range of DJs including MCDE, Move D, Kyle Hall, Joe Goddard and Four Tet (who included it on his much lauded Fabric Live Mix in 2011). Detroit legend Mike Huckaby recently commented ‘You are done making records man’ in response to Programs wonked out bass heavy nihilism.

November 2010 saw the release of his critically acclaimed debut album 'The Early Years', a mix of deep house, disco, beatdown and electro boogie which was awarded album of the month by usually technoid German dance bible De:Bug Magazine. Danny launched the album in Phonica Records in London then jetted off to Tokyo for a week of gigs and press and continued the Early Years album tour into 2011 with DJ dates in London, Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Belgrade, St Petersburg, Bristol, Amsterdam, Vienna, Zagreb, Rotterdam, Tallinn and Helsinki.

A much-needed move to Berlin in March 2011 re-invigorated his enthusiasm for music production and 3 weeks later he was off to Australia for the first time for an inspiring tour down under. For the latter part of the 2011 he was holed up in rural Austria mixing down the debut Hot Coins album and preparing the second Red Rack’em album for prestigious UK label Ramp Recordings.

2012 was an even busier year with hit singles for Bergerac and Ramp, a new Hot Coins single ‘Geek Emotions’, hot remixes for Jazzanova, Square Mode and Ibex (A1 on the Third Ear 10 Years Anniversary release) the launch of the Smugglers Inn label (focussing on the new talent unearthed on the radio show), an even more successful tour of Australia plus the formation of the Hot Coins live band.

The Hot Coins debut album ‘The Damage Is Done’ was released on Sonar Kollektiv on 28/01/13 and received rave reviews from Groove and De:Bug who awarded it album of month – the second time in a row for Danny. The band have been rehearsing in the atmospheric Funkhaus Studios deep in East Berlin, so 2013 will see Danny taking the Hot Coins live act out on the road and adding rock singer to his already bulging CV. Red Rack’em meanwhile is remixing several acts and preparing singles for Ramp, Bergerac and compiling the next few releases on his Smugglers Inn label.
