FUNK OF THE MOOG
For more than a decade Pig&Dan have been jamming in the studio, producing musical adventures that hold their signature sound. Apart from their prolific work as producers they’ve been traveling the globe as Peak time DJ’s and playing at some of the best events on the planet. They’ve been smashing it up at Ultra, Tomorrowland and Awakenings to name a few, plus blessing the decks in legendary clubs such as Amnesia Ibiza, Crobar Buenos Aires, and Womb Tokyo. Its clear that their euphoric-pumping sounds has lifted the roof on a global level…
THE SAINT JOB SAN
Pig&Dan’s productions have been released on renowned labels such as Sven Väth’s Cocoon Recordings, Slam’s Soma, John Digweed’s Bedrock, Monika Kruse’s Terminal M and Richie Hawtins Plus 8 … Apart from their extensive discography they’ve collaborated and remixed for the some of the industries greats including Underworld, DEADMAU5, John Digweed, and Innercity with their massive classic Goodlife…
After so many years in the business plus four albums under their belt, the dynamic duo took it upon themselves to push their personal envelope on LP number five by producing the much acclaimed downtempo album “Destination Unknown”. Boasting flavors of Hip-Hop, Dub and soul they managed to top the Beatport chart from over 4 months in a genre they have never topped previously.
It seems there’s no boundaries when talking of Pig&Dan’s diversity.
The formation of Pig&Dan may have been an unusual one but was no doubt fate. The two crossed paths on a ight to Mallorca back in 1999, when Dan was a resident DJ at Ministry of Sound and touring globally, and Igor was deep in the world of illegal underground raves whilst producing music under the name Tropic 39. By that stage the two had gone through a number of strong formative years surrounded by music. Since then, Pig&Dan have achieved an amazing back catalogue of releases on labels including Soma, Plus8, Terminal M, Bedrock and more recently Drumcode. Chart-topping releases came in the form of ‘Growler’ and their landmark LP ‘Modular Baptism’ on their own cherished label ELEVATE.
And not forgetting their 2016 debut to Adam Beyer’s Drumcode with ‘Mexico’ and ‘Chemistry’ which sat at the No.1 Techno Track spot on Beatport for over 2 months, leading to another 3 EP’s being signed to the label. Pig&Dan are still all about the music, and always will be. It appears that 2018 could be the most important and transformative year of all. Having just featured on the most recent cocoon compilation and a full-length EP to come later in the year along with a very exciting new project soon to be released, it seems that Pig&Dan’s musical Odyssey is only just beginning.
