Kowloon City, Hong Kong
David Lam began his career as a professional DJ in 1987 after spending some time on other technical aspects in the club scene; it was the passion in discovering and sharing new sounds to the crowd that led him to the decision to stand behind the decks and spinning tunes to then a world that would prefer mainstream pop rather than underground tracks.
David gradually moved into the local club scene when house music began to make its impact in HK during the early 90’s. However, due to commercial demand, many of his sets were limited to a more mainstream approach than he would like it to be. In 1992 he met DJ 7-UP, aka Lee Burridge, who was still in Hong Kong spinning at local clubs as well as putting on his own underground parties. Both became good friends and while having a liking for David’s uplifting DJ style, Lee also encouraged him moving towards a more underground approach. During this period David also befriended with other local heroes like Joel Lai, Abby Lai and Roy Malig, and being a part of this circle given him
enormous support in further developing his own music style within the period.
By 1995 David was already having his residency at Judgment AD, then one of the most happening mega clubs in town. In trying to compete with another colleague who basically played anthem after anthem in his set, David took a drastic shift in going totally underground in his set. To his surprise, it was greatly appreciated by the crowd and since then there is no turning back.
At around 1996-7 the underground party scene in HK arose, thus giving David the best opportunity to take a further step in building up his own underground sound. With a good mix of the progressive sound alongside something deep and funky, spiritual as well as uplifting, he soon proved himself one of the most popular local DJs in the scene. David have since played alongside with numerous international DJs who came to HK touring, organizing electronic dance music parties, club nights and raves of different styles, and provided consultancies and support to others who needed them.
Having established himself as one of the most preeminent DJs in town, David then got himself into setting up his own Kaleidoscope Sound System in 1998, initially focusing at organizing parties. In the same year, collaborating with Roy Malig, Trendza Muzik began business, dealing mainly with dance music record sales. Later in 1999, David also started working with Michael Graham under the Fierce tag name, which was responsible for a range of super clubs and international DJ’s tour in Asia, including Renaissance, Gatecrasher, Ministry of Sound and many more.
