Biography

Dave Smith started DJing at the age of 16 in the early 90’s, and hasn’t stopped spinning tunes since. Fortunately he was learning at a great time for House and US Garage; listening to superb DJs like Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez, and Masters at Work, since then his musical taste has expanded all over the music industry, breaking into Old and Nu Skool Hip Hop, Breakbeat, and Rare Funk amongst anything else he can mix and cut in!

There has never been a dull moment in Dave’s career; due to the skills learnt through hard graft at the decks and endless listening to past, present, and future music, he performs as a potential big time DJ for the future, bringing in not only the flawless mixes but also the scratch techniques most DJ’s dare not try in a club.

With this addictive quality, Dave has been playing out all over and picking up residencies at venues across his native south east like Club Class, The River Bar, The Kinky Club, The UK High n’ Dry Snowboard Competition, and Demonsk8 Park, playing alongside Fergie, Judge Jules, Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, Paul Jones, DJ Tang, CN Williams, Chewie, Jazzie J and Mike Ruffcut Lloyd.

Dave constantly practices new techniques and improves on old ones, and the difference can be heard in the sets he performs; both on his own and in his team ups with Kev Rye as DK; working as a pair bringing whole new dimensions with 4 deck and back2back mixing, which graced the island of Ayia Napa in the summer of 1999.

Currently Dave is working on his residency at The River Bar with Kev Rye as DK, playing Old Skool Hip Hop, Breaks, and Funk, and regularly getting invited back to play at previous venues.
