Hartford, United States
Hailing from Hartford, Connecticut, DC Medina’s (real name Danny Contreras) musical career began in 2004 when he joined his middle school’s band as a brass player, specifically the trumpet. DC Medina switched to percussion shortly thereafter; a switch which kick-started his evolution into an EDM producer.
Danny left music though in his tenth grade to focus on school, as he always dreamed on making it to college. It would be almost three years before he returned to the mindset of a musician.
“It was after a Deadmau5 concert that I knew I wanted to be a musician. I loved it, every single aspect of it. The man truly put on a show and I respect that so much.”
And so he began his career in 2011.
