Biography

After years of playing in punk bands and a brief flirtation with acid house during the the so-called “Summer of Love” it wasnt until Dave heard the exciting sounds of the new electronica sound coming out of detroit and Berlin during the early 90’s that he truly converted to electronic music. Having run his own label for a while with releases from steve stoll, freddie fresh and steve rachmad, the label stopped due to problems with manufacture and distribution. Dave started to create his own tracks and began to upload them to the now legendary MP3. COM. To his utter suprise utter surprise within one week of uploading the tracks Derrick May had picked out one of his tracks in his internet top 10. At the same time the staff at mp3.com had chosen one of his tracks tracks to be a featured item which resulted in over 30,000 downloads in one month .MP3.COM is also where Dave met Diego, with whom he exchanged some remixes. Diego suggested that perhaps his friends label in Switzerland might be interested in releasing something. He sent a demo but it was not for them. However label owner Stefan Reisen passed the demo onto to Brixton @ Holzplatten Records which is where he eventually released a number of 12 inches across the various labels. Dave also met other artists via MP3.COM and this resulted in collaborations with wide ranging artists such as Geoff White for Force Inc and Facet labels, and DJ BOSS for DJ Rush’s Knee Deep label.
