You wouldn’t expect the next great rapper to be a San Diego-based attorney from Lancaster, PA, but that is exactly where Dan “DH” Hanecak (pronounced Hanna-check) was born and raised. DH’s sound is an old school flavor with a contemporary twist that provides listeners with feel-good music that has thoughtful and powerful messages. A fellow artist says, “what sets DH apart from other talented lyricists is his uncanny ability to walk the line between banging club beat and clever word play. Reminiscent of Outkast, he brings a head bobbing party track with a surprising amount of lyrical depth swimming just beneath the surface of a catchy chorus.”
Saying that DH’s path to the world of hip hop is one less traveled is putting it lightly. After playing college baseball at Franklin & Marshall College, DH went on to law school at the University of California-Davis. Immediately upon graduating, he founded his own law practice. But music runs in his blood and he always felt a calling to it. DH’s dad was a former professional musician who briefly played saxophone for the “King of Swing,” Louis Prima. Throughout high school and college, DH would write down catchy punch lines to get laughs, but it wasn’t until after law school, at the urging of one of his best friends, that he finally hit the studio. From there, he felt he had gained his own unique voice in hip-hop. As he says himself, “I’m Marty McFly, combined with Spartacus, cardigan, and a tie.”
For those interested in witnessing the emergence of lawyer-turned-rapper DH, be prepared for the release of his first single and accompanying video, “Tiger (Do the Putt Putt),” followed by his debut EP “Risky Business” in 2017. Look for DH’s work on all major music outlets!
Born Dan Hanecak and known to the rap/music world as DH, some would say this unique artist mimics a sound similar to Eminem mixed with a hint of “Weird Al” Yankovic of the new generation. With his unique creativity, he has created a sound of his own that stands apart of any artist out there today.
Attorney to many and recording artist to the world, DH is about to unleash his first Single, Tiger (Do the Putt Putt), produced & written by Dan “DH” Hanecak himself and Bo Han Yang “Bo Haan.” Tiger (Do the Putt Putt) is a golf-themed rap song that will be released on February 16, 2017 on iTunes and throughout other Digital Media Outlets. The video to the single is currently on YouTube and will be released following the single on VEVO and other video outlets nationwide.
“What sets DH apart from other talented lyricists is his uncanny ability to walk the line between banging club beat and clever word play. Reminiscent of Outkast, he brings a head bobbing party track with a surprising amount of lyrical depth swimming just beneath the surface of a catchy chorus,” says DH’s label mate Bo Haan.
The song coaches listeners how to do a new dance, the putt putt,” which mimics the putting motion, but the song and video draw aspects of golf from all over: Tiger Woods’ career, movies (Happy Gilmore and Caddyshack), and of course, golf lingo. DH abruptly stops the song with a bridge to engage his listeners, whispering, “Silence! Golf clap!” encouraging them to join in with an applause synonymous with the sport.
Dan “DH” Hanecak’s path to the rap game is anything but ordinary. He is a San Diego attorney who has decided that it’s his time to make a mark on Hip-Hop and he has definitely landed a Hole-in One!
