David, known by his artist name System Divine, was born in 1984. in Croatia. His mother named him after David Bowie. He started playing the acoustic guitar at the age of 11, and was heavily influenced by his mother’s records, mainly David Bowie, Queen, Depeche Mode, etc. A few years later he replaced his guitar with a pair of turntables. First he started playing at private parties and some local bars, earning money he used for buying vinyls.
His DJ–ing style ranges from deep, tech house to driving repetitive melodic techno, but in the end it’s a „System Divine style“.
His skill and talent didn’t go unnoticed, as he won the award back in 2004, for the “Best upcoming DJ” at a Rookie DJ’s contest. Almost immediately after that, he was given an opportunity to play at Fun Academy, one of the most famous clubs in Croatia at that time (which hosted among others legends like Jeff Mills, Oxia, Mara Sound System etc.). He was warmly accepted and went on to become the club’s all time youngest resident DJ. Several other residencies soon followed, as well as guest appearances in Croatia and abroad. He also appeared on dozens of radio and TV shows devoted to electronic music.
In the summer of 2011., he had his first gig on Ibiza (“one of the best moments in my life” – SD). Many more followed in the next years, especially @ Sands, Ibiza. Playing @ ADE 2013 @ Panama, on a night alongside Hernan Cattaneo & Nick Warren was also a night to remember.Guided by his life motto – “Be Free”, he founded an association under the same name. It’s activities range from organization of events, Be Free nights and promoting electronic music sounds in the media, but everything with the same message to the audience, to be free in all aspects of their lives. System Divine has made dozens of noteworthy appearances, some of them being alongside artists like Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Anthony Pappa, Guy Gerber, Billy Nasty, Moshic, Steve Rachmad, Nathan Coles, Simian Mobile Disco, Alex Metric and many others. Next step – Production. System Divine’s first EP was released in June 2009. In November 2009., his first remix (for Diego Poblets-Piano&Strings) didn’t go unnoticed, to say the least. SD got an e-mail from Mr. Laurent Garnier himself (who continues with support), displaying appreciation for his remix and promising playtime during some of his own sets. A true accolade from one of world’s finest. Since then, he continued to deliver quality productions that have seen support from many world respected artists such as Moby, Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren, Omid 16B, Slam, Paco Osuna, Betoko etc. His remix of Moby’s track „The Low Hum“ is included on „Destroyed Remixed“, a 2xCD collection of remixes of songs from Moby’s 2011 studio album, Destroyed, alongside fantastic artists such as Sasha, Paul Van Dyk, Photek, Gregor Tresher and David Lynch. Consequence Of Sound (music publication) from Chicago, selected the remix as Essential track on the remix album. Great Omid 16B decided to release System Divine latest track „La Discoteca, My Everything“ on his Disclosure imprint. More than anything, System Divine is devoted and thankful to his fans, who provide continuous belief and support.
