The Color Army is electronic musician Dan Fanelli, who has been producing electronic music for two years. He recently released his debut album, "the color army: an introduction," blending ambient, downtempo, drum & bass, and experimental elements to produce a beat-conscious and atmospheric body of work. Though Dan has been involved with music since childhood (with experience playing the clarinet and bass guitar, along with many years of choir) The Color Army is his first foray into electronic music. He is currently looking at finding ways to expand his sonic palate by experimenting with new production techniques and equipment.
