Educated in the mid-90’s UK dance scene, Dave packs a history of passion into every set

Falling into DJing at a time music could only be bought by hanging round in record shops for hours on end, Dave left a few thousand chunks of wax in the back in the UK to visit NZ in 2005. After realising his visit was getting “a bit long”, Dave picked up DJing again in 2007, with what would be a 5 year residency at the infamous Supper Club

From here music was back on the agenda, with highlights including winning the George FM NZ DJ Competition, hosting George’s weekly ‘Deep, Hard, N Funky’ show, 3 years on the much loved Radio Ponsonby, and coordinating DJ line-ups for great events such as the Auckland Volvo Ocean Race

Dave has mixed it up at many notable places, including Beast & Butterflies, Little Creatures, Parasol & Swing, The Jefferson, Ink Bar, The Longroom, Sweatshop, Stonyridge, Red Bar, Lazy Sundays and Deep Hard N Funky events, as well as the usual Waiheke weddings and CBD corporates....an avid producer, Dave is one half of ‘DiCE’ with local legend Christiaan Ercolano (formerly 1/2 of House of Downtown), and has remixed Fat Freddy's Drop & has releases on German record label Audaz Records and is label owner for ‘Hot Jandal’ music

Dave's style naturally borders on funky whether it's cocktail hour coolness or 2am madness. With an ear constantly on the music, and an eye on the crowd, he loves to play long sets progressing from slow, driving foot-tappers to booty shakin' party beats. Expect to hear a definite UK influence, plenty of disco references, and some forgotten classics from the 90's or noughties. Steering away from the obvious top 40, Dave tastefully reminisces whilst dropping the freshest of beats to leave people smiling
