At the start of 2009 Dave was featured as 'One To Watch' in iDJ Magazine being described as someone you will be hearing a lot more of very soon, and we agree. No stranger to the magazine he has also won iDJ's prestigious 'Raw Talent' competition and also featured in the top 3 of DJ Magazine's Pick N Mix feature. He is a name that most within the industry will already be familiar with due to him having played at some of the countries best nights and clubs, supporting and playing alongside some of the biggest dj's and acts in the world continuously for the last decade.
After making his name in what some would say in today's climate the old school way of firstly being dj, Dave has honed his sound by years of rocking dance floors learning how music affects people and what sounds get into peoples heads plus having an understanding of how dance music works through being in the booth looking from the inside out and it's this that makes him a rarity among many of the new breed of dj's emerging these days.
After a string of successful releases on UK and European labels picking up praise and support from the likes of Afrilounge, Deepchild, Perc, Diesel, Max Cooper, Stel Alexander, Ryan O Gorman, Neil Quigley, Ricky Ryan, Microtrauma, Sweet N Candy, Homebase, Gabriel Ananda, Konrad Black, Chris Carrier plus lots more, his talent and hard work in the studio paid of when he was announced as the winner of the 'We Love... Space Sundays ' remixed competition with his remix of Yousef 'Africa' picked by the man himself as the winner. The remix was featured on the end of summer 'We Love' compilation mix and went on to be released on global brand Renaissance along with Yousef's original plus remixes.
His club night Freq! has now been running for 19 months and has bought a whole host of established and upcoming talent from the house/techno scene to Derby, including Gary Beck, Harvey Mckay, James Barnsley, Matt Cooper, Perc, Reset Robot, Max Cooper, Rebekah, Mistress De funk & Audiojack to name a few. It's picked up top night placings in the midlands in all major industry magazines and is truly putting Derby back on the clubbing radar attracting interest from far & wide with every event that's goes by.
The last few years have seen Dave continually rise and rise going from local dj to being known on an international scale as a dj, a producer and now a promoter he constantly attracts major attention everywhere he goes and his success is a credit to his continued hard work, dedication, ambition and most importantly a love for music. We think 2010 is going to be a breakthrough year for Dave so watch this space.
