Biography

Dave’s musical endeavors kicked off in the 80′ as the drummer for legendary H/C Punk band Discharge (check back of the first Metallica album)…Later he switched to guitar, recording an album for the infamous Earache imprint…After this recording he became immersed in the new electronic soundz from Detroit & Chicago that were infiltrating the UK, and found inspiration from the productions of Maurizio & Basic Channel…

Today, he continues pushing forward and finds his productions/remixes appearing on: Supplement Facts, Rekids, 100% Pure, Connaisseur, Kanzleramt, Intacto, Remote Area, Cocoon…

He brings with him a DJ fan base that stretches globally from current top draw DJ’s through to established oldskool titan’s; Jeff Mills, DJ Rush…etc to Giles Petterson & Michael Reinboth…

Together with 2000 and One, Dave penned the massive summer 06 hit Pecan…Other hits include Standing In Line & Today Tomorrow and Yesterday…Tracks have appeared on compilations: Ministry of Sound, Global Underground, FUSE, Kontor,…

His DJ & Live act has seen him perform at major festivals: Awakenings, Welcome to the Future, Sensation, Tomorrowland & Mysterland…

Never afraid to take on fresh ideas and innovations, Dave constantly surprizes us…As dance music shifts & changes he keeps on top and adapts, but still roots his productions in quality & originality…His output has become renowned for it’s pumpin rhythmic style & melodic hook lines…Tracks can be both smooth & dreamy, or dark & poundin (often at the same time)…. He can switch styles as only a bona fide musician can, but what set’s him apart, is the innate ability to combine in his sound double dose rawness with fookin elegance!!!
