Dave Joy’s DJ-career began in little steps as a 16 year old gifted young Music freak in a popular Pub. He started to collect all kinds of records and CDs until he gradually had enough together to present his own music and DJ sets. With commercial Party music it became the chance to harvest my first gage. The piles of records and CDs grew bigger and bigger.

Many years later he had the opportunity to put on his music as an official Trance-DJ at a local club in Switzerland, where he was presented under his new guise Dave Joy. This new job opened many doors to other interesting contacts which gave him the possibilities for other gigs.

Since the year 2000 he’s been organizing a stall at the well known Streetparade in Zurich, where local friends as well as DJs from abroad spin their records to a major audience.

Since beginning in February 2001 he has worked in one of the biggest DJ-record shops of Switzerland, Number One Record-Store in Zurich. Local as well as international DJs grab hold of the newest and hottest House, Trance, Techno, Progressive and Hardcore Records.

In November 2000 he had his first chance to produce his own track with a production team from the French part of Switzerland. His first new born track was named First Impression. Out of a lucky coincidence he happened to meet Marco Reverb” Guardia, the mind behind the highly acclaimed Flutlicht Project. (Together with Giotto DJ they do their productions for the German Label Overdose under the project name “S.H.O.K.K.”). This unique remix happened to become a huge hit in clubs all around the world. The track can be found on more than 40 compilations worldwide.

Beginning of 2002 he started to produce the follow-up single with his newly found producers David Kolodziej and Mario Kaufmann. The track called Second Chase has been released in September ’02 on Planet Traxx Records. Together with Germany’s Oliver Kaylab Klitzing and Alphazone he again was able to place two famous names as remixers on the record.

A new project called Basic Dawn was born in summer 2003. Difuse from Uk´s Alpha-Magic Distribution, which also rereleased First Impression with a new remix from Dave202 & Phil Green, signed the track called Pure Thrust and let Italy’s NU-NRG do a wonderful remix, which is already played by all major key-djs. This track was written and produced together with Switzerland’s Franky Fonell & Chris Reece.

In Fall 03 the next chapter in the Dave Joy Series was released again on Planet Traxx Records. First time spread on two vinyls, Third Pleasure includes Rmxs of Überdruck, DJ D-Light, Climax69, DJ Spoke as well as two different Original Versions to choose from.

At the end of 2003 they separated from Mario Kaufmann. As in return we welcomed Sandro Oswald (Van de Traxx) as their new team-member aboard.
