Who is Kovaxx? Dave Smith aka. Kovaxx is a Glasgow born DJ and producer, who since the age of 13 has had a passion for playing records and who’s wide-ranging roots go back to 90’s rave. His signature sound is a raw blend of deep and tech house anything with driving bass lines, it feels very now.
It wasn’t until Dave moved to Australia that the Kovaxx journey began … in 2015 his debut EP – ‘Initiate EP’ on LA based label ‘Perfect Driver Music’ drummed up some solid support and tracks from the EP found their way into a plethora of DJ sets including the likes of Anna Lunoe and Shiba San. Dave’s next two bass driven hard hitters ‘The Party’ & ‘Rinsed’ on ‘Worthy’s’ Anabatic imprint also received quick support from Shadow Child on his Rinse FM Show and the EP was featured on Beatport’s Top 10 Must Hear Tech House meaning Kovaxx was certainly a name to watch.
For Dave, 2016 started off with three more releases on ‘Perfect Driver Music’ including at the five track ‘Numbers EP’ a release on Sydney based ‘Friday Records’ and various remixes lined up for the third quarter.
On top of all this we’ve not even mentioned his skills as a DJ, now a resident at two of Perth’s hottest parties he’s always one to go with the moment during DJ sets and never plan what tracks he is going to play.
With more new music and a schedule of DJ sets forecast for the rest of 2016, Kovaxx reputation will continue to rise, although he will remain the same – humble, focused and determined to make his mark on the scene.
