They’ve had a year playing the worlds most famous venues and celebrated a #1 in both the overall and Techno genres on Beatport with their smash hit “Growler”. Pig&Dan also released the album “Modular Baptism” on their own label ELEVATE and was hailed as a true reference to their unique sonic diversity.
