beloved record store in Newtown. A beloved staple in our local scene, over his career Dave
has also played in some of Berlin’s most esteemed clubs.
For our very first selection, we delve into SoundCloud’s archives to bring you a live recording
of Dave’s 2017 set at the infamous Tresor. Kicking off with some melodic off-kilter
breakbeat, Dave then delivers a trademark set of immersive techno.
In his own words:
“So, Tresor...how can I express the pure panic, anxiety and then jubilation of this gig? I’d
already been fortunate to have been playing regularly at clubs in Berlin every summer,
including a few mid-week parties at Tresor, but I was shocked when I was booked to play
there on a Saturday night alongside some of my favourite artists.
Following a full blown panic attack, I pulled myself together and got to the venue early to
sound test. The basement there is just epic - low ceilings, cages, smoke, strobes, and the
sound...oh the sound!
I put my first record on, and the crowd filled in. I put my head down and put all that nervous
energy and anxiety to work and played my heart out - the result you can hear in this
recording. It was a very emotional experience and one I’ve forever been indebted to my
friend Mareen for arranging.”
