An enigma of individuality, Danielle "Danz" Johnson is her own sound. Fueled by an obsession with music stemming back to growing up in the Catskills of New York, music has always been her mainstay.
Danz joined the NYC music scene at 18 as a DJ and Promoter whilst going to Hunter College.

Danz returned to New York and with drummer Chris Egan, who's played with Solange Knowles, Adam Green, and Turing Machine among others – started performing live.
Two years later and Computer Magic has just finished a tour in Japan, while simultaneously releasing Scientific Experience, a compilation CD on Japan's P-vine & Tugboat Records, and will be releasing a debut full length album this year.

III is an EP that shows a lot of potential for a group of talented
musicians and songwriters, who are sure to carve out their own space
in an exciting, emerging (and hopefully lasting) trend in independent
