Doc Daneeka Offers an Exclusive Mix and Talks Preferring Small Rooms Over Big Shows

Offering dreamy, syncopated beats and room-shaking bass, Welsh producer and DJ Mial Watkins, aka Doc Daneeka, is becoming quite the master of the house music spectrum. His recent collaborative album THEY!LIVE with longtime friend and producer Benjamin Damage is a landscape of melancholy minimal house, while his own tracks, such as “Hold On” veer toward uplifting soul-house. Beyond producing, Doc Daneeka attended the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid and also runs his own label, Ten Thousand Yen, which oversees releases from artists like xxxy and Presk. He took time out of a spring tour with Addison Groove to speak with All Shook Down about his label, his progression towards playing primarily house music, and what's he's listening to lately. Doc Caneeka performs this Saturday at SOM Bar with Addison Groove, Grenier, and local DJ Sam Supa.
