Darien Daniel started producing music in 1990, in the mid early 90’s teaming up with Chris Brann, whom with he co-founded Wamdue Productions. Daniel and Brann met DJ Deep C (Chris Clarke) and Udoh (Chris Udoh) at an Atlanta warehouse party named the “Beat Motel”. The production company started producing tracks under the name Wamdue Kids, releasing house music EPs on several labels including Detroit label Acacia Records.

After taking a vacation from Wamdue Productions, Daniel returned home to Los Angeles and started producing tracks on his own, encompassing several genres of music which he speaks fluently such as house, downtempo, techno and disco punk.

Wamdue Productions is better known for the hit "King of My Castle", released in 1997 under the name Wamdue Project. Originally produced as a downtempo piece, it achieved worldwide fame and sold over two million copies worldwide and is reportedly the best-selling single ever for the Strictly Rhythm label, becoming a #1 in the UK Singles Chart and a #3 in Germany in 1999. A follow-up Wamdue Project single, "Where Do We Go", hit #9 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1998. One more single ("You're The Reason") achieved success in Germany in lower chart regions (#55). A 2000 re-release of "King of My Castle", with new remixes, hit #1 the following year.
