Dave Thatcher is fast becoming one of the most respected and talented young DJs to break into the Midlands clubbing scene in recent years. His proven ability to rock any crowd and his reputation, have earned him sets and residencies at some of the Midlands’ most prestigious clubs. His remarkable knowledge and passion for house music have not gone unnoticed, setting him apart from his peers and earning him a dedicated following wherever he plays. With a full gig diary each month Dave’s career has been rocketing forward in the last year, with no sign of stopping!
From and early age Dave developed his love of house music and after discovering Pete Tong’s Essential Selection on Radio One he was hooked on house music. He started his DJ career at the age of 16 when he got his first pair of decks and started experimenting with different styles of house music. He drew an early influence from DJ’s and producers like Steve Lawler, Erick Morillo, Pete Tong, Roger Sanchez and Danny Rampling. His first public appearances were DJing at parties around his local area. He has since gone on to hold residencies at clubs such as Gatecrasher, B1 and Bushwackers in Birmingham and also De:funkt in Coventry and Solihull.
Dave’s now vast experience has given him the ability to adapt to any crowd and most genres of house music. His set’s are never predictable, he will often mix in classic tracks or his own re-edits and his seamless mixing helps create well programmed and rocking sets. His passion and love for the music is evident in his charismatic performances and interaction with the crowd, and while putting in his next mix he will certainly be dancing around behind the decks getting the crowd going. These factors have proved his ability, gaining him recognition and have made people stand up and take note.
Over the years Dave has been selected to play alongside credible Djs and producers such as TIM GREEN, RAMON TAPIA, DERRICK CARTER, CLAUDE VON STROKE, DJ SNEAK, EATS EVERYTHING, WILDKATS, NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS, MENDO, KERRI CHANDLER, DEEPGROOVE, OLIVER LANG, JUNIOR JACK & KID CRÈME to name but a few. His two biggest moments to date were when he played for The Gallery at the iconic MINISTRY OF SOUND nightclub in London and playing in Ibiza at Carl Cox’s night at Space where he played alongside Uner and Umek.
