House DJ from Wigan.
*Supported some of the Worlds Best DJ's*
Dave has always been a lover of Dance Music with Trance and Hardcore playing a big part of Daves inspiration in his younger years then many a Ministry of Sound Compilation making it into his CD player in his mid to late teens. In the last 3 - 4 years he has settled at Progressive and Electro House taking inspirations from such artists as Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Deniz Koyu, Swedish House Mafia (Axwell, Seb Ingrosso & Steve Angello), Thomas Gold, Laidback Luke, Gareth Emery, Dannic, Nervo, Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Tommy Trash, Fedde Le Grand and many more & he has only recently delved into the Techy & Deeper side of House Music with DJ's such as MK, Pirupa, Huxley, Josh Butler, Noir, Pleasurekraft, Hector Couto & Darius Syrossian all having an influence.
It was fellow Wiganer Eddie Halliwell however that truly inspired Dave to take to the decks instead of the Dancefloor. With his rise to the top from his DJing skills and trickery alone some say Eddie was ignorant to the Production element but it is this 'ignorance' that has made him now World renowned as a DJ and not from producing a hit track to put him at the top.
Dave is Self taught from scratch and has worked hard spending many hours practicing techniques that would define him as a DJ over the last 18 months. Self promoting & Posting regular mixtapes to Soundcloud for free download he soon made ears prick up locally. Dave played his first club DJ set at a friends event in Wigan back in late 2012 where he used CDJ's for the first time, so only DJing since November 2012 Officially. Since then he has played in some of Wigans Biggest Clubs and made a few guest appearances at other locations around Wigan, Dave is slowly building himself a good reputation for blowing the roof off any club where he loads his CD's and now concentrating on his own exploits as you will see below.
Dave entered the Movida Corona International DJ Contest in March 2013. This was the start of his quest for a dream to share a stage with the big guns...
Shortlisted in the Top 20 in his region, he then got selected in the top 8 to compete in a Regional Final whereby he went to Leeds and Won, much to his surprise. He had a place in the UK Final in September of 2013 with 6 other Regional Winners spanning the UK. A trip down to London to DJ on the Mixmag DJ Lab and see how everything ticks at Mixmag HQ was a sweetener and an experience in itself for getting into the Final, again a dream come true.
The UK Final took place at The Monastery in Manchester and was all coordinated by the guys at Secret Party Project & Movida Corona of course.
Dave shared a stage with and supported one of the Best DJ/ Producers to come out of Sweden, John Dahlback on this night which considering less than 12 months ago it was a mear dream is an achievement in itself.
