Mea Culpa

Mea Culpa

Real Name:
Dan Jarman
Dan Jarman is from Hampshire, England. Dan has been writing and recording electronic music since he was eight years old. He quickly progressed from a small 4-track recorder to a sampler/PC setup, and by 1994 was writing and producing his own house productions after wanting to replicate the vibes of his hedonistic nights spent in nightclubs around 1994/95. He then had his first vinyl release after submitting a demo to a local record label. The track was D J Technique – My Definition. Aside from this, Dan had been a huge fan of the first two Enigma albums. He always felt that there was a lack of decent 'uptempo' mixes of the Enigma tracks at the time. He had also fallen in love with what was going on in the Trance scene through listening to albums like Global Underground - Paul Oakenfold, and so decided upon the artist name Mea Culpa - a track from the first Enigma album. The Gatecrasher Anthem Spiritual Light was then born, which had the ethereal/ethnic influences of Enigma, twinned with an epic, progressive trance flavour. The track was signed to independent label 4D Recordings in 1998. It featured on Gatecrasher and Cream Anthem albums and was playlisted by A-list Trance DJs. In demand as a remixer, Dan was commissioned to lend his production skills to the likes of Chicane/Salt tank, Bonzai Records, Sebatu (Solarstone). Dan was featured on a further two Gatecrasher albums, amongst many others. Dan took a sidestep from producing in 2002 and has been focusing on his new found passion for sound design and more recently, being a father.

Of interest to note is that a lot of Mea Culpa productions have Greek lyrics in them and they all sound like snippets from news media. I dont know why this is the case as Dan Jarman isn't Greek.
