Danny Avila at SiriusXM: meet the new kid on the block, just don’t call him Bieber

17-year-old Danny Avila might be better known for his Justin Bieber like hair than his DJing skills, but his prowess behind the decks is undeniable. I had the pleasure of attending his live in-studio session at SiriusXM last week, and found myself impressed with both his talent and confidence. Avila was discovered by Sirius president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein after receiving recommendations from two important people: Pacha NYC owner Eddie Dean, and the world famous Tiesto. Both came to him with rave reviews, and after checking Avila out for himself, he too recognized the talent.

During his performance in the packed fishbowl studio, Avila proved that there is certainly a place for him in the dance music world — though we’re not quite sure just where yet. Personally, I’m excited to see where his path takes him. Read on for the full tracklist and audio of his set.
