Biography

DAVID ARDIENTE started off as one of the DJs from Colegio San Agustin Makati who formed the group MIXED AUDIO in 1992 which was later on renamed as STUHTISTIKS (/stuh-tis-tiks/) — providing music and lights systems to several High School dances, parties, soirees, school fairs, etc. In 1999, he became one of the resident DJs of CLUB SPOON in Alabang together with DJs Elmer Dado, Martin Pulgar and Reggie Innocencio. In 2001, he became the Resident DJ of BUDDHA BAR in Glorietta 2 and AMOEBA in Eastwood City Libis. In 2002, he had a short stint at DREAMBAR in 6750. In 2003, he became the resident DJ of ICE VODKA BAR in Greenbelt 3. In 2004, he became the Host and DJ of the SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE Radio Show of 99.5 RT (formerly hosted by BOO KYLER). In 2006, the show was renamed and called “DAVID’S HOUSE” in conjunction with the radio station’s re-launching of its name – 99.5, HIT FM, which later on reverted back to being called 99.5RT. To date, the show David’s House remains to be the biggest and longest-running dance music show on radio, broadcasting live from the hottest clubs in the metro. He then later on also hosted the daily midnight show of 99.5RT called The Midnight Ride. David was also one of the resident DJs of Warehouse 135 for Warehousexy which was later on called Sexy Warehouse together with DJ Miko Syquia. Also played at Manor Super Club in Eastwood City Libis every Friday night from August 2009 up to January 2010 then moved to Encore From January 2010 to March 2010 not to mention the various parties and events in Manila, Cebu, Boracay and other cities. David currently plays at ICON Ultimate Club at the Hotel Intercontinental Manila every Friday and holds residencies at OPUS in Resorts World (Mondays), Dillingers in Greenbelt (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and Limbo at the Fort (Wednesdays). David recently played the opening and closing sets for the First Big Party of 2011 with French DJ Bob Sinclar (popular for the song Love Generation and World Hold On) last January 15, 2011 at the jampacked World Trade Center and has also opened for several other Foreign DJs such as Andy Caldwell, DJ Meme, DJ Grant Nelson and DJ Collette to name some. Moreover, being one of the few (if not the only) Club DJs who is not just gifted with spinning prowess but with a golden voice worthy to be behind the microphone of one of the best FM radio stations, David has been the voice behind numerous TV and Radio Commercials, Mall Shows, Corporate Launches and other big events and concerts. As a Club DJ, David believes that a DJ’s primary function is to entertain rather than to educate. A DJ who is known to play what the crowd wants, he will not hesitate to drop beats that will make his audience dance. Why not? After all, it is quite lonesome playing for an empty dance floor. David is a multi-faceted, well-rounded and versatile performer who is able to connect to any given crowd. From playing the newest sought-after anthems, to never before heard underground house music for the extreme, or even go back in time and play the hits of the past for those in retrospect, from the smallest venues to the biggest clubs, he will make sure the people will dance.
