Im a sucker for anything irie and mysterious.  Danger always rubs me in the right spot with his dark ominous flute tones and time traveling music.  I like to picture danger wearing a zortak jumpsuit flying out of a black hole and getting dirty on the decks.  And of coarse i’m in the front row Hammered drunk!
