Captain Earwax has released 3 full-length albums, Delicate Empires (2017), Red Silhouettes (2012) and Porcelain Giants (2014), plus EPs Floating Tokyo and Blue Temple, and multiple projects as Flight Recorder, a collaboration with fellow Sydney artist and audio engineer Jack Prest. In the early stages of his music career, Dan was the instigator behind Sydney’s renowned Free The Beats compilation series and event, which showcases Australia’s underground beatmakers and electronic music producers.

Delicate Empires, was released on vinyl and digitally in August 2017 through Australian-based label Fifty Records. The album saw Captain Earwax blend his passion for nature and earthly sounds with playful and emotive melodies, intricate percussion and crunchy textures.

His latest single Fever Dreams ft. Ness Cassey delves into a soulful electro vibe, blending live Rhodes, 808 drums, and Minimoog /model D baselines.
