Daan is a Belgian band and solo project, formed by Dead Man Ray member Daan Stuyven. When playing live, it consists of:

Daan Stuyven (lead and guitar)
Steven Janssens (guitar)
Otti Van Der Werf (bass)
Isolde Lasoen (drums)
Jeroen Swinnen (synthesizer)
Gregory Frateur (backing vocals)
The first album bearing the "Daan" label, "Profools", was released in 1999. It's a compilation from various tracks recorded by Daan Stuyven between 1996 and 1999. The Dead Man Ray rock-influence is obvious, though this album already contains some electro.

The second album, "Bridge Burner", was released in 2002 and was their big breakthrough. The biggest hit, Swedish Designer Drugs, marked the beginning of a career in electronic music. At the same time, Dead Man Ray decided to take some time off, and Daan Stuyven was able to focus on Daan.

They carried on making electronic music and added kitsch. Their third album, "Victory", was released in 2004. Again, the album is a huge success, and includes the hit singles "Victory", "Addicted", and "Housewife". It quickly achieved golden status, and Daan received the Zamu award for best album in 2004.

In the summer of 2005 Daan released Type Ex Ex Type, a single containing two songs: Type Ex and Ex Type.

Daan Stuyven is also a popular soundtrack composer for indie films. In the fall of 2005 "Cinema", a compilation album of his soundtrack compositions, was released.

In 2006, Daan released a DVD named Camera, with a concert filmed by the audience.
