David Templeman was just twelve years old when he moved from small village to Rochford, Essex —a move that would forever alter the course of his life.
In 1996, while living in Rochford he was introduced to a program called FT2, a basic music production program where he began fusing sample snippets and experimenting in sound construction. David soon began producing under the moniker, “ALTYA” solidifying his interest in electronic music that guided his musical focus; accordingly he crafted many house and trance tracks that followed suit. Years later, after streamlining his production skills he was still searching for an edgier sound. It wasn’t until the early liquid sounds of Danny Williamson professionally known as LTJ Bukem and his Good Looking imprint that inspired David to shift his sound away from house into drum and bass.
He immediately started investing in more studio equipment.
David’s first professional collaboration wasn’t until the crafty age of 18, working on the album entitled, “apasionata” by acclaimed Irish pianist, Alison Hood. The album was forged together as modern remixes of classical songs by commissioning David to utilize his advanced production skills in electronic music.
Now many later, David is still continuing in EDM but has a more focused vision and produces under the moniker “Ghosts Of Paraguay”
Ghosts Of Paraguay was born in late 2009 whilst David was travelling throughout Australia and the far east. This was a crucial period as it gave him the break from the elitist world of D&B and a chance to really think about the style and direction he wanted to go. Now back in the UK he is still pursuing Ghosts Of Paraguay with ever more passion and determination.
