countries. Between 2007 and 2008 David Jones and his friend and business partner

took responsibilities as both A&R and main producers. Since then, David has been focusing
on developing his Artist profile: his many releases strongly contributed to Starlight quickly
being widely perceived as the rising star in house music. 2009 was a great year for David:
he topped Beatport’s House Chart twice, first with “Thriller” and then with “Without me”, his
own rework of MJ and Eminem’s classic hits. Both tracks were co-produced with Aqua Diva
(Barbara Tanzini's alias), David's partner in the Diva & Jones project. David’s “Thriller”
enjoyed massive DJ support and peaked Beatport’s “Year’s Best Seller 2009” in the house
category for five weeks in a row, beating such tracks as Dennis Ferrer’s “Hey Hey”, Swedish
House Mafia’s “Leave the world behind” and Armand Van Helden’s “Funk Phenomena”; this
track was also selected by BBC Radio 1 for their special December MixMag cover CD. At the
beginning of 2010 David joined one of Italy’s most dynamic management agencies, Luca
Moretti’s Plus 39 Group. An attentive management and massive support to his tracks
combined with the high quality of all his productions pushed David at the top of Beatport’s
charts more than once and established him as one of the most notable breakthrough house
artists. Over the last few months David has been releasing his own music and enjoying
growing demand as a remixer - such artists as Armin Van Buuren, Coolio, Milton Jackson,
Shara Nelson, Jazz Bit, Da Hool, Sergio Fernandez requested David’s touch and many of his
mixes are being released through both major and independent labels such as Ultra, Time, Hed
Kandi, Ministry of Sound, Spinning, Superstar, Rise, Kontor, Vidisco, Universal etc etc. At the
end of 2010 David entered MN2S’s roster and is currently being booked worldwide.
