Dan Curtin began his music career in 1992. His fascination with music was sparked ten years earlier when he discovered the burgeoning hip-hop movement. Hip-hop, along with new wave, electro, and other sonic innovations of the Eighties began to loom largely in his life, and it was only a matter of time before Curtin began experimenting with music creation himself. When he finally heard the futuristic sounds of house and techno, everything changed. Drawing influence from stargazing evenings with a telescope and late night drives through nearby Cleveland, Ohio; music production became Curtin's primary focus. Cleveland, a city not known as a hub for house music creation, was initially isolating. However, Curtin was able to observe the more prominent scenes of other cities without becoming part of or being identified with any one of them. He began designing a new sound in techno and house music.
Curtin's first few records were released on Detroit's now defunct 33 RPM Records and Belgium's Buzz Records. Shortly thereafter, he started his own label, Metamorphic Recordings. Dancers and listeners alike began to take notice of his innovative sound signature, and before long Dan Curtin found himself being hailed as a key player in techno and house music. With his profile on the rise, he eventually caught the attention of Peacefrog in the mid �E0s. His releases under his own name and his Purveyors Of Fine Funk guises were welcomed with open arms by the worlds techno fraternity, many of which becoming key cuts in many a DJ's set for years following their release. Releasing three albums over a two year period 'Silicon Dawn, 'Web Of Life' and 'Art & Science', Dan Curtin has defined himself as one of the key players in the development of techno as we know it today
