Dave is one of the most recognizable British techno DJs. He has an outstanding character and considers himself a soldier who serves the music. Dave became interested in music when he was just 8 years old. His mother had a big collection of old disco records, including the works of Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith, and Crusaders. His father loved different music equipment. Ever since childhood, Dave knew how to operate it.
When Dave was a teenager, he moved some of this equipment into his room and created his own personal studio. Dave recorded tracks for his friends and pulled apart players and amplifiers to find out how they work from the inside. He listened to all types of music, from soul to new wave to psychedelics and Chicago house.
Clarke has an outsider’s spirit. He started showing his nature when he was still in high school. Several times, he was nearly expelled for bad behavior. Soon Clarke became an outsider in the music world. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to voice his opinion.
