DAVE CLARKE

Over a hard-hitting career that now spans more than 25 years, the name Dave Clarke has become virtually synonymous with techno music.

The British DJ/producer was labelled the “Baron of Techno” by the legendary radio DJ John Peel, and if you look closer, you’ll understand why. Since his debut release on XL Recordings in 1990, Dave has remixed everyone from Depeche Mode and New Order to Moby and Leftfield, played headline gigs at clubs such as Fabric, Berghain and Fuse, and helped set the pace for advances in techno through original releases on labels including R&S and Skint.

Dave was born and raised in Brighton, England, but now lives in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. The offspring of a technology loving father and a disco-soul loving mother, it was always evident that Clarke would cut a swathe through music. As a youth he ran away from home, sleeping in car parks and on beaches. He took lousy jobs in shoe shops, living off £5 a day, to subsidise his income from badly paid local DJ gigs - anything to further his involvement with music.

In the years since, Dave has played Awakenings, I Love Techno, Lowlands, Pukkelpop, Glastonbury and Nature One, and developed a special relationship with Tomorrowland where he has his own stage. Here he has showcased names such as Green Velvet, Chris Liebing, Jeff Mills and Ben Klock. Clarke also continues to be an absolutely key player in the Amsterdam Dance Event where his Dave Clarke Presents event at Melkweg has sold out consecutive years running.

“I still love DJing with a passion,” Clarke enthuses, “Keeping a balance with technology so it doesn’t take over. Anything in a DJ set-up has to provide something extra, as opposed to being there as smoke and mirrors. There’s too much of that sort of thing going on, especially since the American EDM explosion...”

And although it’s been a long time coming, Dave is now ready to bring the noise to Hong Kong – where he will appear at Volar on May 29 supported by the PUSH residents Frankielam, AKW and Lukas.
