Daniel Wang is animated. In the figurative sense, but he could be in the literal, too, floppy hair, head bop and bubbly demeanor. He would fit in perfect on Sesame Street, big eyes when he tells excited muppets about the wavy path of disco. It’s a path well traveled, very notably with his classic, “Like Some Dream” and with his sing and dance along DJ sets. Just before he stood atop speakers at this summer’s PS1 outdoor disco event for happy folks in linen yearning for happiness, Wang sat with us and talked about the current state of music and what it’s like to DJ in the city where much of the music he loves originated. Wang just now has a collection of his singles released, a fairly enormous history of your favorite DJs favorite DJ. Dude is a living legend.
