"House music is summed up in 200 pieces of vinyl. The rest is derivative, just a variation."

Daniel Wang is an American musician from Chinese origins who has been active in dance music since the 1990s on his own Balihu Records label and Morgan Geist's Environ Records.



Born in Northern California, Daniel Wang spent 8 years of his childhood in Taiwan, returned to California for high school, and attended university in New York and Chicago. Wang started Balihu Records in 1993. Balihu put out a range of unusual tracks from 1994 to 2000 in the spirit of Philly and Italo Disco, and began producing for Environ Records in 1997.

Tee Scott interview

Wang led the house music historiography on the internet by publishing an interview with Tee Scott.

"It was a warm Sunday night in April: I was at the Marc Ballroom in Union Square, where the House of Ultra Omni was holding a ball. A few hundred people would gradually fill the room; the invite had detailed some 50 or 60 categories of competition, and Paris Dupree, Avis Pendavis, and a host of ballroom legends were preparing their outfits in the hallway. And although the event would go well into the wee hours, the deejay's choice of music throughout the evening was impeccable: these were the basslines, riffs and loops of Giorgio Moroder's "Evolution," Danny Tenaglia's "Harmonica Track," Junior Vasquez's "Dub Break," Philly, Salsoul, and other gems both old and new. But then, this was Tee Scott playing, a New York legend himself on the turntables... and for once, there was the rare chance to make some small-talk and get a phone number. He was vivacious and extremely articulate, and I looked forward to speaking again with him soon ..." --TEE SCOTT as interviewed by Daniel Wang on July 14,1994
