Dan the Underdog is an award winning Northern Territory based MC/producer. He has been pivotal in establishing the Northern Territory Hip Hop scene. Since his humble beginnings with Teknikal Onslaught in Darwin to taking the nation by storm with Catch The Fly, to starting Bring It ON NT Battle league with Northern Versifiers Firm, he has always been about dope beats and a live stage show.
His first single and probably most popular song to date was Hypocrite which can still be seen getting regular plays on youtube. In 2014, Dan the Underdog released “Classical Soul” a concept album that fuses Hip Hop and Classical Music. With the bulk of the production being handled by Dan the Underdog, the classical samples chosen perfectly set the tone for this deeply personal album and gave him the platform to discuss many aspects of his life; growing up between Australia and the US, the fall out with his former band Catch The Fly, his current place in the Hip Hop scene, his family life and becoming a father, and much, much more. 2015’s “Breakfast of Champions” was a real look into his day to day life; songs about his wife and kids, growing up, introspective tracks, party tracks and braggadocious lyrical tracks. Dan the Underdog’s flow is always immaculate without compromising the message, his stories are told well and never lack humour. As always, the bulk of the production is handled by Dan the Underdog, the sample driven beats are soulful and compliment his style perfectly.
Dan the Underdog is a member of NT Supergroup Northern Versifiers Firm, Hip Hop/Metal Duo Symbiotic with Gareth Dawkins, UnderBellee, and Hip Hop/Producer duo DeadBeats with QLD based Threat3.
