The serene, self assured personality of Dan Hattersley is quite the paradox to his vigorous and euphoric Drum and Bass music. At 20 years old, Hattersley is carving his own lane into the music industry, having already been featured on BBC Introducing, primetime Radio 1 airplay spins and DJing around the UK. With his growth of exposure, Hattersley has officially announced his new artistic identity as 'Advocate'.
Advocate's fascination with producing originated in his hometown of Hereford, studying Music at Hereford College of Arts; he has since taken the necessary steps to perfecting his craft, acquiring a place on a Music Production course at Southampton Solent University, only helping to elevate his career further.
Sub genre influences from Liquid to Neurofunk & Techstep have moulded Advocate's creative catalogue into an amalgamation of compelling, hard hitting and euphoric based Drum & Bass tracks; a sound that's evidently been recognised and respected within the scene, supporting established electronic artists such as Rene Lavice and Wilkinson at various live shows. Another glimpse of his awakening talent was heard through his feature on BBC Introducing, experiencing 3 of his singles, 'Infinity', 'Atlas' and 'Freefall' spun on primetime BBC Radio airplay under his birth name, Dan Hattersley.
