Fazakstudios was initially setup to showcase the projects and music of Daveros/Deadairdave (Dave Ross), a British trance, dance & para para producer, showcasing his music, radio, Tv and video projects.
Dave has always had an interest in music from an early age.
Over the years he has learnt to play various types of musical instrument starting with a recorder aged 5, progressing on to a synthesisers in his early teens; and then an organ, where he played regularly at a church in West Germany.
Now, using the latest computer music software (FL Studio/ReFx Nexus2/z3ta+), Dave produces an array of music spanning many genres.
Dave not only makes music for his pleasure. He has had it included in a number of projects that he has been involved in at Keylink Studios, Merseyside. His music has appeared on CD:K, a monthly audio magazine for school pupils aged 11 to 19 years old. The CD:K project was funded by the Children's Local Network and Neighbourhood Renewal Community Chest.
In 2003, Dave worked with an aspiring young film producer whom created a short sci-fi drama and required backing music to accompany the drama. Dave produced a number of chilling and heart stopping songs, used within the production. The drama ‘Demon Squirrels’ was then later commissioned and screened by Channel 4 (UK TV Company).
Other work has included writing backing music for productions that have been broadcast on the Tonight Programme of KCR 106.7 fm. Also, Dave has had the chance to broadcast his music on In-Shops Radio based in Kirby, Liverpool, Merseyside and on road shows with Keylink Studios engineering ‘Live’ outside broadcasts for Barclay’s Bank, Liverpool and Knowsley City Councils, Kelly’s Dance School and Asda.
As a member of Keylink Studios Radio Production Team, Dave has also engineered and in some cases written and produced programmes, of which have included commercials, radio plays/sketches, reading the news; and researching/carrying out interviews. He has also taught Primary, Secondary and socially excluded school pupils, as well as disadvantaged children in Radio Production Research and Broadcasting. Dave has also been involved with Knowsley’s ‘Village Times’ audio magazine including writing, narrating and engineering articles.
In early 2007, ‘Deadairdave Productions’ (dp) was launched. Producing music videos initially to accompany Dave’s music, dp then branched out to the general public producing promotional material; and other video projects. Widening the Fazakstudios website, a forum was added for guests, regular visitors; and clients to view additional info and material not featured on the Fazakstudios website. In late 2007, Dave joined the Para-Para Network, producing music for the Japanese music scene.
2008 brought new challenges with remixes and productions for the Para-Para Network.
Working with producer Carl Noblet of Source One, Dave’s song ‘Pulsar’ was given a 2008 touch of magic and remixed into a stomping track. The success of this remix and collaboration attracted the interest of UK Record Label ‘44Records.co.uk’ whom released the track in late August.
Dave didn’t stop there; and went on to produce ‘Digg This!’ featuring 3 variations ‘Trapara, Dance Mix and Air Mix’. Again, 44Records took interest in this track and released the ‘Dance Mix’ on their label in February 2009, using the new artist name ‘Daveros’. This change in artist name didn’t come by choice as it was a request by the 44 Records label!! The name change was eventually accepted; and as such new branding has been added to the Fazakstudios website, Logos and merchandise stores.
Now using Dave’s new artist name, July 2009 saw the release of ‘Daveros - Energize’ featuring 3 tracks: Radio edit, original mix and hyper mix. All three tracks have been released by Fazakstudios.co.uk on the ‘Deadair Productions’ Label.
September 2009 opened a new chapter for Fazakstudios.co.uk. First of all it saw the release of ‘Daveros - Rock to the Rhythm’. Featuring 4 tracks (Radio edit, Original mix, Vocal mix and Hyper Mix), released under the Fazakstudios label (Deadair Productions). Next, came the announcement to alter the entire site! Instead of focusing solely on Dave’s music/projects, it was decided that the website and forums be made into a community music website.
As Dave already has a website dedicated to his music projects, it was thought that it be best to keep Fazakstudios as the main community site and provide a link between the two sites. For those that wish to follow Dave’s music, radio, TV and video projects, they may do so by clicking the following link and visiting www.Deadairdave.co.uk (The website opens in a new window).
After a long break over the Holiday Season, February 2010 saw the next release 'Daveros - Stratosphere.' Initially released with two versions - 'Dance Mix' and 'Urban Remix' - these tracks fit under the Euro-Trance genre.
April 2010 saw the next release with 'Daveros - What do you...?? (Vocal Mix)’ another Euro-Dance track.
In May 2010, remixers' Source One and Xtatica requested if they could remix 'Stratosphere.'
June 2011. After a long break from music production to pursue other interests, Dave has begun production of tracks from the RnB genre. Dave 1st produced RnB back in early 2000. Working towards an album; and other producers, info regarding these tracks shall be made nearer the time.
July 2011 Dave’s latest track, 'Daveros - You're Not Alone' featuring two versions, one by Dave, the other by remixer, ‘Source One.’ Dave’s version falls under the Scouse-house genre, whilst SO's Remix is a Hard Trance release. In addition to this, is another track ‘Daveros - Bring That Beat Back!’ Originally written in 2004, this track has been given a major 2011 update; and is expected to tear up the dance floor!
September 2012. Dave launches a selection of old and new tracks on Soundcloud.com integrating them within the ‘releases’ section of both Fazakstudios.co.uk and Deadairdave.co.uk. As a final release of 2012, ‘Daveros - NYE’ a trance/dance anthem is released for December.
2013........5 months into the New Year and Dave releases 'X-Dance' a fast paced dance/trance track, followed shortly after by 'Neutronium' a powerful trance track with plenty of his usual synth and piano sequences.
Then with love on his mind, Dave switched from his usual trance/dance genre to something more down-tempo. Featuring the lush Vocals of singer/songwriter Danny Claire, known from hit tracks like 'Test Drive' with Michael Angelo and 'Remember' with Ion Blue, Dave produced 'Somewhere,' 'Set You Free;' and 'Today.'
Sticking with the down-tempo genre, Dave then went on to produce 'Dreams' featuring Adam Somers. Adam has many years experience and great success in the vocal scene and has featured on many tracks; and also written a large number.
New material is being written for release on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, 7Digital, Spotify, Sony Qriocity, iHeart Radio (Streams on mobiles and games consoles - PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox Live), AT&T, Nokia, Beatport, Juno, WiMPand 24/7 Entertainment.
The first track to hit the download stores in June 2013, was 'Daveros - XdC' a hard trance song, all instrumental and featuring two unique versions. As part of this Global release via distribution company 'Dittomusic.com' Dave has setup a new record label called 'A1R Records.' 'Deadair Productions' will now solely be used for video and radio projects, both past and present.
At the beginning of August 2013, whilst listening to sets from Ibiza streamed via video music website Be-At.TV Dave came to enjoy the genre known as ‘Dirty Electro’. With ideas of his own; and a lot of experimenting using his favourite DAW FL Studio, he came up with several new tracks; and continues for the month of August to produce many more!! All these tracks will be available to stream via Soundcloud; and on rotation via the main Fazakstudios and Deadairdave websites, once they are completed.
The next track destined for release after 'XdC' was to be 'Feel The Beat', but Dave has been working hard on the release of two albums, one with his down-tempo tracks, the other with his Electro/EDM/Hard Dance music aimed at every clubber. Currently, the original version of 'Feel The Beat' is available on Soundcloud to listen in full, but with the album release, two more completely new revised versions will be made available. Every track on both albums will be available to download seperately - well, let's make it easy for people to choose what they want; and not have to buy everything!!
Included on the down-tempo album will be, 'Set You Free' and 'Dreams.' Again, both tracks are available to listen on Soundcloud, but as with all releases will come additional versions; and at present, Preston born songwriter Carl Noblet is producing a knockout version of 'Set You Free,' whilst Dave has produced a new radio remix and A1R label remix of 'Dreams.' Both albums will be released before July/August 2014. We know this is a long way off, but there's a lot of new tracks for people to hear, so over the coming weeks, building up to the releases, Dave shall be adding tracks of various genres to his Soundcloud page for people to get a taster of what is to come!
If anyone wants a track for their MP3 player, etc, feel free to drop Dave a message via his Souncloud Page; and I'm sure he shall open up the download option for you, if you ask nicely. ;)
