Biography

The fermenting Partenopean culture shaped Davide’s attitudes and tastes in his early life; in 1995 the techno scene met the passion for his sound innovation and his destiny was born. When he was eighteen, to broaden the knowledge he acquired in Naples, underground he moved to London - the capital city of electronic-music.

In London, he started to produce his first work with just a few machines, which were studies on instruments functionalities and their ranges of use, and his first work was published by Primate and soon Audio and contrast published some EPs.

In 1999 Davide went back to Naples and he started to play gigs now and then. He took time out of playing and producing for two years to study sound engineering. This polishing of his technical knowledge allowed him to fully express his ideas and create work of outstanding quality.

Both DESIGN MUSIC and CONFORM, released his work initially, earning positive critical appraisal internationally. In time, Davide began to struggle with the limitations imposed on his music by these labels and decided to set up on his own. He therefore set up the Sketch project, to finally be free to create sounds true to his pure tastes.

Three years later he set up his second label, MINISKETCH, geared towards more minimalist productions. Davide Squillace is also known as erikOtanabE, an alter ego born as an outlet for another tangent of his genius where he assembles different kind of beats, with greater liberty taken using sounds & samples. His tracks are a mix of minimal tek and glitch house, resulting in something the discerning techno listener can enjoy at a club as well as pottering about the house cooking some beans on toast.
