Originally hailing from London's East End, DJ Spectrum's collision with forward thinking music happened back in the early 80's. Exposed to the original pioneering sounds of electro & Hip-Hop from artists like Tangerine Dream, Front 242 & Afrika, Bambaataa Grandmaster Flash, Man Parrish, DJ Spectrum soon acquired a taste for quality avant-garde music.
In the mid 80's Spectrum's Anglo-French heritage made him eligible for National Service in France, and so began his steady importation of English music culture to the French Riviera, organising some of the earliest 'Raves' and 'Warehouse parties' in the country.
In 1991 he joined forces with some of London's hottest underground organisers and changed the face of clubbing on Frances south coast for good by importing DJ's and equipment the likes of which had never been seen there before.
For the first of his infamous 'Power-House' parties DJ Spectrum shrewdly chose to teamed up with young London DJ/Producer 'Tom Parris'. Once again this collaboration was to spark a revolution in the area and lead to some of the most innovating events the country has ever seen.
Together Spectrum & Parris were to introduce some of the Uk's finest DJ's to France. Mr. C, Layo & Bushwacka, Nathan Coles, Murf, Baby Ford and even current Fabric resident Terry Francis all made guest appearances for the duo long before they became house hold names in the Hexagonal.
But David Rayon aka DJ Spectrum isn't just a Disc-Jockey. He was also one of the key investors in legendary London Super-Club The End http://www.endclub.com/ , and also the label boss of 'Cydonia Records'. Today DJ Spectrum holds down regular residencies on the Riviera and beyond, and has built up a following for his Deep-House mixes on Sound Cloud that would put many higher profile DJ's to shame. He also has a resident slot on Cocoon FM Radio along side Colin Dale, Tom Parris, Trevor Rockcliffe and Billy Nasty. http://www.endclub.com/
