Dave got into techno in the late 80s, fascinated by new sounds and new technology. 'I was thinking 'This is the music of the youth and 20 years from now it's going to be like the rock of the 60s'. I had to get in on it.'
Although raised in a musical family (his dad was a modern jazz musician), Dave didn't 'get on it' until after the death of his father and series of jail sentences. He was swept along by acid house and in 1989 released a re-work of The Eurhythmics' 'Sweet Dreams', called the 'Nightmare Mix', which reached No. 23 in the UK charts. Popular in techno circles as a producer and a DJ, Dave became massive in Germany's tech-heavy club scene. In 1996 he released his debut album 'Tales Of The Unexpected', followed by 1997's 'Globetrotting'.
