Performer •Session Musician • Remix Artist •Producer

My name is Dan Milligan, and I am a professional drummer, session musician, remix artist, and music producer from the western suburbs of Chicago.

I am the founder of the post-industrial/rock/punk supergroup The Joy Thieves, a member of the dream-pop/alt rock band The Burying Kind, and the drummer for Chicago-area dance band Libido Funk Circus. In addition, I am half of the audio production team known as Joy Thieves Productions, and the founder of DrumDaddy: Remote Drum Services.

I specialize in remixes, drum programming/recording, and production/mixing, and my most recent audio projects have led me to work with members of Ministry, David Bowie, Killing Joke, PIG, Naked Raygun, Front 242, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Stabbing Westward, Nitzer Ebb, KMFDM, and more.
