General Bounce is 28 year old Dave Gray, a DJ known across the North for playing bounce (of course), hard house, scouse house and hard trance.
After years of playing in the pubs and bars of West Yorkshire, Dave came to the attention of the local hard dance scene when he became a resident for Shock at the Kube in Wakefield in 2005. He quickly became known for his widely-influenced sets combining happy scouse house melodies with banging hard house beats. As Shock was coming to an end in 2007, he began promoting himself through the internet and his DJing career has continued to grow ever since.
From 2007 onwards he became a resident for Nostalgia at Viva in Wakefield, and also began to appear at bounce and scouse house events in the North West at the heart of the scene. He has gained a big following in the area which led to him playing at Bounce Therapy in Manchester, Cricketers in Wigan and the massive Sanctuary vs Frequency events held at Halo in Warrington. Throughout all this Dave kept a firm interest in hard house, and his ability to play banging sets of all things hard gained enough recognition to earn him a place at the Parlez Vous DJ Competition Final.
During the last 5 years Dave has played alongside some of the most famous names in bounce and hard dance such as Alex K, Andy Farley, Rachel Auburn, Mark EG, Rob Cain, Paul Maddox and many more. In recent years he worked with producers such as Groove Control and Sonic Bounce on their tracks, and in 2009 teamed up with local speed garage DJ Maggi to produce the track " Blue Angels", which went on to become a DJs' favourite recieving regular plays at many of the top bounce clubs.
10 years of consistent hard work finally paid off in September 2010 when Dave made his debut as a Cheeky Tracks resident at Rave On. From this point on his name has blown up bigger than ever. Dave now plays regularly for various events right across the North, holds a monthly residency at Bounce Therapy, and has even fulfilled his dream of playing at the legendary Wigan Pier Nightspot. This year he joined the Cheeky Tracks artist team, and has been working hard in the studio with Mr Mister, Audox and the Cheeky Boys themselves. His work is already gaining much attention, with tracks signed to Electrik Shandy recordings and support from Wain Johnstone and even Technikal!
In the future Dave will be working with many more producers and making guest appearances on the Cheeky Boys Radio Show, as well as taking his unique blend of tunes even further afield throughout the year. Look out for his next release Mr Mister & General Bounce "It's Not Over", on Cheeky Tracks from June 24th!
