Daniel Lindeberg (born 1974 in Sweden), aka Dumb Dan, has been making music and DJing since the late 80's, but it wasn't until setting up the netlabel Bevlar that his music really took off. With the Bevlar project Dan was finally able to make use of his knowledge and experience in producing, DJing and running club nights - and soon gained the attention of many producers and DJs.
In 1989, aged only 15, Dan released his first single; hard industrial sounds on 7 inch vinyl. Later that same year he discovered acid house on a trip with his dad to London, and immediately started producing his own dance tracks.
As half of Kill Squad & Doubleheader he made a couple of singles on the Swedish Superstudio record label in the mid 1990’s. After moving to London in 1997 he set up Triplet together with friends, on which he released a 12” as Gary Baldi.
Dan’s four years in London found him promoting club nights in south London and playing numerous private parties. Recently he has started Djing in clubs again, taking bookings all over Sweden and the odd one abroad.
On returning to Sweden in 2001 Dan took up producing more seriously and soon launched his Bevlar netlabel. After two years of releasing free quality tracks by artists like The Adjuster, Mashtronic, Cryo and of course himself, he decided it was time to start a proper label, selling the music on vinyl and as digital downloads.
Dumb Recordings is distributed on vinyl by Unique, Dumb supporters inlcude Hernan Cattaneo, Paolo Mojo, Ricky Ryan, Gus Gus, Sebastian Ingrosso, Marco V, Fergie, Desyn Masiello, DJ DLG, Funk D'Void, The Flash Brothers, Axwell, Inkfish, Muttonheads, Andy Moor, Oliver Moldan and many many more.
Dan's recent collaboration with Ozgur Can has resulted in releases like 'Dim The Lights' / 'Dumb Bass', 'Data Data' and 'Bloody Mary' and has gained support from many DJs, including Fergie. (BBC Radio1)
The two also run a new label, Skymph, releasing downtempo oddities. Together with Stian Klo and JdotP, Dan and Ozgur form the Dumb and Furry Group, a loosely knit label collective and Proton radio show.
