at the young age of 10 david spent his sunday afternoons with the radio strapped to his head, following the ups and downs of the charts ,creating his own charts in his imagination.the love of music became more intense as he recieved his first recordplayer, now he could begin to lay the foundations of his collection of music, which stretches from 'falco, nena, duran duran, house of pain; sepultura then through acid house.
in the beginning of the 90's david fell in love.....with techno music and naturally turned into a party animal spending the weekends at partys and raves. he became more and more fascinated by the kult around the dj and his magic deck as dave say with a smile. 1995 dreams became reality, dave and a friend bought their first mixer and two technics mk2. many different rehearsal rooms and uncountable hoursbehind the mixin' desk helped to develope daves art of mixing, and in the same year david steel played his first official gig at one of the legendary white dove promotion partys under his old name dj harmony. at this time he was playing trance -hard trance.
in 1996 dave played his first big event at the 'futurescope 13, which brought many other bookings in its wake....big rave events like 'evolution 4-6, goliath, magic factory, white wolf ect. at the end of the year dave got a job in a record shop zero zero in baden and now everything in his life was saturated in the black gold (vinyl). he reached a highpoint in his carrere as he mixed the first official streetparade live cd in 1997.the most emotional point in his carrere was in 1998 when he was invited to do the 'energy show' in the hallenstadion in zurich. needless to say the bookings came raining in and he was on the road every weekend, but this time as dj and not as a consumer.
his taste developed and he wanted to move more towards progressive uk - house sounds but this didn't fit with his name as dj harmony, so in 2000 he deciced to kill off dj harmony and together with it the trance direction. in the same breath he awoke as david steel and was free to go off and discover different facettes off electronic music. at the end of 2001 david steel mixed the first edition of the tech-house cd series 'zh is calling' (sony music) which also featured his own production 'this sound...'. 'this sound...' was released one year later on zap label 'tribal tribe' as a vinyl maxi single and was featured on four compilations, tech-house 1+2 ,laby 2, and dj tauchers 'eye trance'. other compilations followed and they can be heard under www.jfkstudios.ch.
