ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Growing up in Greenwich Village, New York City, in the 1960s, Danny was surrounded by music. His mother, an accomplished jazz singer and his father, the manager of legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker before going on to open up “The Ninth Circle”, a Village hot spot, where Danny worked as a boy. It was here that Danny met some of the most influential people in the music scene; Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Mingus, John Lennon & Yoko Ono, amongs others. His home was also a hotbed of musical inspiration, with The Mothers of Invention living down the hall, and Sid Bernstein (Manager of The Rascals) living upstairs, the rascals would regularly pop down to the Krivit household to practice their future hits on the piano. At school, a close friend and classmate was the son of Creed Taylor, the production genius behind many artists who recorded on the VERVE, C.T.I. & KUDA labels, and another close friend, legendary Nile Rogers, help Danny pick out his first guitar.
By 1970, Danny was already a vinyl junkie & an amateur DJ, But DJ'ing as a profession wasn't fully realized until 1971, after another neighbor/friend of Danny’s (Vice President of Polydor Records) introduced Danny to one of his all time favorite artists - none other than the legendary James Brown, who gave Danny white-label advance promo copies of his “Get On The Good Foot” and “Think” by Lynn Collins. Around the same time, Danny started Djing & programming music for “The Ninth Circle” which by now had been transformed into a disco. Danny’s father opened his second club called “Ones” In 1975; Danny was their sole DJ through 1977. Danny’s sets were a big success and from this he started promoting and Djing at his own after-hours club down the street. At this stage, Danny was becoming part of the underground scene, club-hopped a lot, meeting some of the greatest DJ names of the time. These included Nicky Siano (of the Gallery), Walter Gibbons (of Galaxy 21), Tee Scott (of Better Days), David Rodriguez (of The Limelight), Richie Kaczar (Club Hollywood), and Bobby DJ (of Le Jardin) amongst others. Although all outstanding names, one DJ and club stood out amongst the rest: DJ David Mancuso and The Loft.
