Mauro Ferno & Rich David
Dj/Producers Rich David and Mauro Ferno met, studying Music Production and Sound Engineering at Point Blank Music College and quickly became good friends. Realizing they shared the same taste in music, yet each bringing a complimentary, different style to the equation and recognizing each others talent at dj'ing and producing, they partnered up to work together as dj and production team Digital Malfunction.
Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Rich David began his love for dance music & culture after being introduced to the London rave scene in the early 90’s. He returned to Toronto and there started attending the underground raves. With his insatiable appetite for House music & culture showing no end after almost 7 years, he decided it was time to make the transition from clubber to dj. With this new avenue to explore he instantly became addicted to the rush of the mix. Using his experience as an avid clubber to guide him in track selection and keeping the crowd moving, he has consistently thrown down sets that will make you want to dance. With a 1 year residency at Axis in 2003 where he wowed crowds with 5 hour sets every Saturday night, a “show-stopping” 6 hour set at the Keele & Dundas 2003 summer street festival, numerous V.I.P room parties that he headlined and organised at System Soundbar, a 2 year residency at club254, a weekly set for over 2 years on what was Canada’s largest electronic music station, the now shut down club246.com, resident dj at I.V. in the heart of downtown Toronto up to April ‘08. He is now back in London, to stay, having already gained respect in the Shoreditch scene with his and Mauro Ferno's back to back, unpredictable, explosive Digital Malfunction sets.
Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Mauro Ferno was immersed in house music when he was just 7 years old! When his uncle, who worked for one of the biggest clubs in Lisbon "Kremlin", came to live with him. Mauro was given exclusive mix tapes of dj Vibe & dj Mario listening to them non-stop, waiting for the day he would be old enough to get into the clubs and see his favorite dj's play live. At 14 he moved to Africa and kept listening to his old house mix tapes but was becoming influenced with more "unusual" tribal beats. When he was 24 Mauro moved to London, finally reaching the "cold paradise" of dance music and found himself falling in love with Tech-house, Minimal & Techno. Learning how to dj and produce, he enrolled in a Music Production and Sound Engineering course where he met Rich David - his Canadian "Brother from another Mother". Having started their own monthly nights- Sub Terrania in Shoreditch, which have been hugely successful, their dj sets have quickly gained a reputation for creating dance floor mayhem. So when you see Digital Malfunction are on the dj line up, don't miss out!!!! It's gonna be Biblical!!!!!
