Biography

With a brimming dance music resume including international DJ and producer, and an innovative soul to match, Dave Ralph is a dedicated music enthusiast. His track record in providing clubbers with memorable DJ sets, unforgettable club nights, quality vinyl and critically hailed mix CDs have all garnered him a place in the hearts of millions. Turning his back on the snobbery often associated with the dance scene, Dave has been influential in breaking down barriers within the genre and outside of it, in the spirit of good times, the dance floor, and great music!

As a DJ for more than two decades, as well as a recording artist and producer since 1989, Dave Ralph first built a name for himself in the UK. In his early days as a teenager in Liverpool, he kicked his career off by putting a mobile DJ unit together with a friend in order to provide a much-needed outlet for “good music.” He soon built a name for himself in his hometown where he was lucky enough to make a living from his hobby. “We got better and better and began earning money,” Dave says now. “It’s the best training ground in the world for being any kind of DJ. It teaches you to look at a crowd and entertain them.” His specialty became mixing rock and pop with soul, funk, and disco. Then Dave stumbled across house music in 1986, upon hearing Fingers Inc’s “The Washing Machine.” This pivotal moment was followed by a trip to see Sasha in 1989, where he fell firmly under the spell of dance music.
