Channel 9 Records
Danielle “Danz” Johnson is a self-taught song-writer, arranger, composer, producer and mixer. She’s a label owner, too (Channel 9 Records). Based out of New York State, she was born and raised in the Catskills in upstate New York and moved to Chinatown in New York City to attend Hunter College.
After living in New York City and DJing at the age of 18, she decided to move in with her mom in Tampa, to get away from city life. There, she taught herself how to make music and put up several EPs for free online under the moniker of Computer Magic. Alas, it began.
Danz has released 9 EPs worldwide and 4 LPs, 3 of which Japan exclusives under Computer Magic. She has written and produced numerous songs for commercials (Lexus, Aria Casino in Las Vegas, Panasonic Beauty in Japan, and QP Half). She has remixed artists (Strange Names, Pink Feathers). She has modeled clothes for Kim Gordon’s brand X-Girl and Sofia Coppola’s clothing line Milkfed (now both owned in Japan), and tours frequently in the USA and Japan.
Her new record semi-self-titled Danz is out now on Channel 9 Records. She is also working on a full-length rock record with her friend and collaborator Cody Crump.
