[His first steps to the music]
[At the age of 14, I stole my stepfather’s (musician too) vinyl. I tried to scratch, but I broke them. Fed up of my foolishness, He bought me some Technics SL-1210]
By François Dave
At this very moment, he always travelled around with his vinyl, and the DJ became his job.
One year later, he animates an event in Antwerpen, in front of a public of 3000 persons. In 2009 he wins his first place of the Rane Serato Scratch Contest live in Ibiza. The life of François Dave is full of success.
On the top of his 20 years, he’s doing a lot of presentations, and became an artist who make the crowd dance.
It is in his apartment in Luxembourg where Francois Dave is working on new shows. The shelves are brimming of vinyl, on his desk the professional equipment is swarming all over and I wouldn’t know how to say it right.
His style is Hip Hop, Rock Pop, Chicago House, Minimal, Nu Disco, Old School. Eclectic and relaxing. My eyes are overseeing a whole lot of visit cards from the directors of the most greatest Clubs of the World, in front of me on his wallpaper: Mister Bob Marley is caring us with his indolent glance.
FIRST HARMONIOUS STEPS
The refrain of his life, the music has never made him loose his mind. As a kid’s dream, he wanted to succeed in his studies « I never thought I’d be a professional DJ, to me this was just a passion”.
He tried many different jobs, from nursing to hairdresser, on to seller and fireman... François is seeking for the right job.
He does not suspect that his destiny was that every evening, when he got out of school, at the very moment he is putting his hands on his vinyl. (His parent’s gift).
And yet, the music will be the basis of his life, his hazardous and fortunate meetings.
His school music teacher gave him a hand and got him to be the DJ of the teachers’ night.
Thanks to him, François got the occasion to mix in Antwerp. “I was 15 and a half”. In observing people enjoying themselves on my remixes, I knew I would be devoted to them.
François put an end to his studies at 17. Around him, his parents support him “I’ve had a difficult period, questions and doubts, but the music has always caught up.”
His faithful friend Roy de Marco has always supported him. The young artist walks on his own “I made my own connections; I started to create MySpace and Facebook, where I sent the demos. I still have difficulties to believe in this, all happens like I wished it. I think I’ve always got a good star upon my head.
IN FULL SCALE
« I love the music, the way she is constructed, what she telling.” She and me have got a particular relationship.
By the way, it is behind the vinyl that François feels best. “the best moment of my life, is, when I start mixing, so I can share my ideas and emotions. »
And when the public is receptive « his rage of winning » doubles : « it already happened that someone put me 100 Euros and said to me : “I want a cd from you”. All his work is then having a meaning when he realizes that more than 700 dates in more than 160 places.
