MuzzY is Detroit-Based Producer/Musician Dan Hacker. Thrust onto the scene at a young age, Dan found solace in the old school. Stylistically blending Motown and Jazz samples with modern hip-hop drum breaks, his music can best be described as "Soul-Hop". He combines a wide variety of influences from Stevie Wonder, to Led Zeppelin, to J Dilla with his own live Guitar playing; which together makes for an interesting recipe set to tantalize your ear drums. You can catch MuzzY bringing back the funk around Michigan and the Midwest, and also with the likes of GRiZ and Tone Poets (Live Jam Band with Freddy Todd,, and Unc).
