Dan Hacker hails from the vibrant Detroit area, where his passion for music ignited and grew from a young age. Dan's career highlights span over a decade of touring and recording in the realm of dance music, funk, and hip-hop production. He's graced major stages like Red Rocks, Electric Forest, and Bonnaroo, and contributed to songs with millions of streams. This wealth and versatility of experience uniquely equips him to assist musicians and producers in honing their unique sound.
A true music maker, Dan's journey started with a diverse musical upbringing, from Motown to hip-hop and house / techno to neo-soul. Learning piano and guitar paved the way for his introduction to producing in Ableton Live, his homebase DAW of 10+ years. He favors his Fender Jazzmaster and Takamine Acoustic for their versatile tones, with other studio essentials including a UAD Apollo 8p, Ableton Push 2, Shure SM7B, Lab Series L5 Guitar Amp, Dave Smith Prophet 6, and more.
His musical influences encompass a ridiculously wide array of artists including Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, Radiohead, Daft Punk, and more. Albums like "In Rainbows", "Blonde", and "Donuts" have profoundly shaped his creative approach.
At Vintage King, Dan's enthusiasm for sharing his musical expertise shines. Guided by his belief that the right gear can transform a concept into a masterpiece, he's dedicated to providing a tailored experience that helps fellow creatives unlock their full potential.

I am a huge nerd! I love Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering, video games, movies / TV of all kinds, reading comics and novels, and researching every new production technique and gear review I can sink my teeth into. Recently, I started going to the gym multiple days a week, which has done wonders for my mental and physical wellness!
