Dave Lambert started out in 1990 with his own party concept in PARADOX Antwerp/Belgium). The events he started out with were merely focused on rock music! Back in the early days he played music from bands such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biohazard, Pearl Jam and many more.
As he got older he evolved into a more underground house style in clubs around Antwerp Belgium. It was at one of these nights he got spotted by the owner of a place called LE BEAU ZOO (1998) and was immediately asked to come and play on a regular basis. Right from the start he created a special vibe which let to enormous respect from famous Djs such as Marko (La Rocca), Pippi (Ibiza), and Oliver (Amnesia Ibiza). This also let to the creation of his first mixed compilations for Le Beau Zoo, Delano and Chill Music by Coca Cola!
It all started snowballing from that day forward! Dave Lambert started playing notorious party concepts like Antwerp Is Burning, Cruises To Pleasure, Ibiza Reunion and many more!
At LE RÃVE DâO in Tournai Belgium, Dave Lambert started a new residency on Friday in 2000! So not only the Flemish part but also the French part of Belgium started to fall for Dave Lambertâs sound! In those days Dave played a wide range of music between House and Tech house and some tribalism stuff with a progressive feel and on special occasions a deep house lounge set was not impossible for him.
During that period the owner of one of Belgium?s most talked about clubs, Zillion, offered him a residency during the GOLDEN nights. GOLDEN was a UK organization that brought ZILLION the crop of the cream of tastemaker DJs like Seb Fontaine, Paul Van Dyk, Tall Paul, Ruff Drivers, Sander Kleinenberg and many more. After the closure of LE BEAU ZOO Dave also started playing on the more Trance orientated Saturdays in Zillion! Although he didnât really play trance the ZILLION crowds took Dave Lambert in its arms which let to a more groove and progressive orientated Saturday!
This was a turning point in Daveâs career as this high profiled club made him known all over Belgium and abroad!
Dave started playing clubs like Space (Ibiza), Velfarre (Japan), Kadoc (Portugal), Colossus (Lloret Del Mar – Spain) and more!
Dave stayed in Zillion till its unfortunate closure in October 2001! He didnât immediately take another residence and started playing more events and high class events till the day that VERSUZ offered him a new residence on Saturday. VERSUZ is located in Hasselt/Belgium a town near the German and Dutch border and has a +4000 capacity! VERSUZ is currently one of Europeâs super clubs! On Saturday Dave is accompanied by residents Tom Leclerq and B who create the ideal atmosphere for Dave to take over the wheels of steel. On a regular basis VERSUZ also invited guest such as Pete Tong, Bob Sinclar, Armand Van Helden, David Guetta, TiÃ«sto, Armin Van Buuren, Todd Terry, Steve Angello, Axwell and many more!
Not only the club is at its maximum capacity every Saturday but also the compilations mixed and compiled by Dave Lambert are one of Belgiumâs best selling CDs! Also abroad VERSUZ with resident Dave Lambert profiles itself as a super club and hosted the inside room of Space Ibiza in 2002 on Friday mornings with TONIC (Alex P and Brandon Block) on the terrace. Also KADOC Portugal saw the Dave Lambert sound hitting them on Sunday evenings during the summer season!
VERSUZ is a way of life nicely created by the DJs and staff!
Besides his VERSUZ residency Dave also plays a lot of festivals like eg. NATURE ONE Germany, Tomorrow Land, Rave On Snow Austria, Extrema Solar Holland, The closing party of the Belgian City Parade and many more!
In 2006 Dave also headlined Europeâs famous SENSATION WHITE event besides Tom De Neef, Darren Emerson, MIKE and Marco V! Itâs surely was one of the highlights in his career as it was held in his hometown of Antwerp!
Together with his studio partner Elektrokid Dave also makes records that have followers of their sound all over the globe! âYeahâ was Dave Lambertâs first own production and was released in 2005 and was a success beyond imagination. âYeahâ was played by the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Andy Cato (Groove Armada), Deep Dish and many more! The Follow up for Yeah was a remake from Lipps Inc Funky town which led to plays from the more groove orientated jocks like Stonebridge, Erick Morillo and more! Production wise the future looks bright as reactions on remixes for Wonderland Avenue, Junkie Xl and several others also take Dj land by storm and then we didnât even mention his new track âHouse In Playâ to be released in the summer of 2006!
The future looks bright for Dave Lambert
