Hailing from Toronto, Canada and currently situated in Chongqing, China, Doctore Freedom Danish is an international bass pervert and existential time traveling detective with a high energy attitude, lots of stage presence and can blow enough hell fire to warm Anarkusuga’s frozen tatas. He is the DJ for gypsy bass band The Root Sellers (Beijing 2008 Olympics, Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Burning Man, etc) and the main man behind new breakout touring and production group The BlissFits.
His last release "Dubs from the Deep" hit #1 on the Dubstep charts and *overall* entire site dance music charts on the prestigious HTFDR store. His sound design clients include some of the biggest companies on earth including Microsoft Bing and Windows Media Phone, from the Toronto Canada studio he used to run with childhood friend and world renown touring producer and music educator ill.Gates. Danish has held down residencies, affiliations and stand out past performances at many signal clubs and festivals including Bass Drive, Burning Man, Chroma, Evolve, the FreakEasy, the Limelight, Metro Smart Bar, Montreal Fetish Weekend, Nuit Blanche, Opulent Temple, Shambhala Music Festival and more. He is a favorite DJ among many regional Burning Man arts festival events around the world, and supports many charity and benefit shows for humanitarian causes. Recently he has become the resident DJ for Chongqing’s IWG – International Women’s Group, with their upcoming 10th annual Venetian Masquerade ball expected to raise upwards of 1,000,00 Yuan (approx. $200,000 USD) for local and rural women and children in Chongqing.
Off the decks you can catch him hosting vaudeville shows, dropping standup comedy and dancing all across the globe. Last year he performed a show-stopping walk on role (Sleazy Santa) at legendary Second City Theatre for Love Letters Cabaret's the Naughty Nutcracker, created a star-studded nouveau burlesque theatre spectacle for Krampus Ball and produced a scintillating David Bowie Burlesque extravaganza called BOWIElesque...not to mention the other 352 days of the year.
Lately you can catch him touring an electroswing and gypsy bass burlesque cabaret show with some pretty incredible international cabaret and burlesque performers gracing his stage. In late 2014 he founded the Chongqing Electroswing Speakeasy, bringing the global speakeasy collective into Earth's busiest nation. This summer he is opening shop in Beijing and Shanghai also with dates at Modernista in Beijing and the Mansion in Shanghai as part of his 20 city Cirque du Bass tour spanning over 30,000 KM across the globe. The Cirque du Bass is growing and the forthcoming world tour will include many notable performers including some of his favorite recurring stars, Laura Desiree, El Toro and Thrasher, special headlining appearances from Miss Exotic World 2014 and Reigning Queen of Burlesque Midnite Martini and many more. Danish is an accomplished gypsy DJ, producer, ringmaster and dancer who’s been holding it down with the best of them since he was a wee lad, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
