Closely examining Dave Miller’s extensive past encounters with electronic music reveals an unassuming and skilled artist whose early life revolves around frequenting record stores, exploring analogue hardware and who, through New Wave and Italo Disco, eventually discovers techno. Meticulously building a collection of vinyl records that now easily outmatches most others of its kind, he is living proof that old habits do indeed die hard and, more importantly, that in his case this is a strong virtue instead of a vice. While digital’s advent has undeniably had a tremendous impact on the art of DJ-ing, Dave continues to rely on his vinyl; not out of stubborn refusal but rather out of appreciation for its creator, sound, label and artwork. This effort and warm affection characterizes him, both as an artist and as a person.
After taking the neccesary time to get familiar with the production side of things he began putting out music around 2001 as part of the illustrious collective behind Audiosculpture and also with long-term friend Damian Keane under the Miller & Keane guise. More recently Dave and Paul Boex decided to start collaborating, marking the beginning of a new and ambitious chapter known now as Abstract Division. Together they have released music on Paul’s own Dynamic Reflection, Labrynth and Orbis Records and have played most major venues around the Netherlands, bringing the house down every single time.
In over a decade of gigs Dave has performed both in and outside of the Netherlands and can put Awakenings, Berghain, Planet Rose, MS Stubnitz, Mental Evolution and many more on his list of venues and events. Always carrying the right, perfectly suited records for the place, time and crowd he has managed to move small dancefloors and large warehouses alike.
As attention for Abstract Division increases and with a new trilogy, following last year’s well-received “Form and Function”, entitled “Time and Perception” set for release in the first half of 2013 the chance of Dave adding another decade to his career seems all the more likely.
