The Philia Story

As Philia, producer & Ableton Certified Trainer Dan Giffin blends funky bass rhythms with sweeping melodies that challenge the status quo of electronic music with live instruments. Formerly a jazz drummer from a small town in Ohio, Dan switched creative lanes following life-altering mentorships by the world's best producers/ engineers in New York City & Los Angeles. Dan adopted new influences and grew his skills creating jazzy, bass-infused dance music.

The Philia Live Band adds heavy hitting saxophone, keys, drums and DJing.

The word Philia is ancient Greek for "brotherly love" or "intimate friendship".
