DJ Danny the Wildchild balances the dark and the danceable tonight when he spins a frothy mix of hip-hop and drum n' bass in Akron. "No time for rest just hard drums and sick B-lines," he says. "My sound is big. It's primetime, main-room, dance-floor business." When he was 12, Daniel Garcia was making jaws drop with his turntable skills on Chicago's South Side. Seventeen years later, he's garnered international acclaim for his squeaky-clean mixes. Yet he still relies on "a knockout punch" at the end of his sets, he says. "I'm learning about dynamics to get a good mix-down."
