5 years ago, a fresh faced raver happened over a couple of djs playing at a club night in his home town of Liverpool, this was to be David’s first taste of authentic house music at its finest.
An Easter Sunday at the legendary Circus Club with Yousef and Ricardo Villalobos in control was to change the life of a young David Glass perpetually. Blown away by his first experience of this new world, David Glass knew he had finally discovered his sound.
Honing his studio craft at the tender age of 18, David was originally influenced by early hip hop and old school 90’s dance, yet after the infamous visit to Circus his style evolved. Now leaning towards the darker side of house, his music and dj sets are laced with a broader jackin’ tech essence, yet still retaining that infectious groove.
Circus and Circus Recordings owner Yousef was still unaware of the developing synergy, ironically discovering David via his long time friends Loco Dice and Phil Weeks as they were hammering David’s huge ”Hood Chicks” on Witty Tunes. After another release on Robsoul the penny finally dropped for Yousef and David was signed to Circus Recordings for the immense four track “Lost Ep”. The release illuminated David to Nic Fanciulli, Richie Hawtin, Luciano, Pete Tong (with a essential selection play) and of course Carl Cox who opened his 2012 essential mix with the EP’s lead track. Since then Carl has been a huge supporter of David inviting him to remix his single “Its time for house music” and hammering David’s remix of Demian Muller’s ‘Nytid Night’. In this years DJ mag top 100 issue Carl named David his ‘producer of the year’ which led to Yousef and Carl Cox inviting David onto the illustrious Safehouse DJ Agency for global tour representation; where he is rubbing shoulders with the aforementioned heavyweights, as well as Cassy, Danny Tenaglia, John Digweed, Tania Vulcano and more.
The synergy continues with Circus with a DJ residency in Liverpool and a 2nd killer EP for the renowned label set for March 2015. With releases already on Circus, Robsoul, Witty Tunes, Midnight Music, Magnetic & Roush, you can expect a flurry of remixes and tracks on the worlds finest underground imprints in 2015.
Importantly, David is a self-sufficient beat maker and a serious DJ, constantly developing his skills at the UK’s freshest club events including Circus Liverpool & London, Magna Carta, Pacha London, Warehouse Project, Boiler Room & many more. Also playing B2B with this years biggest news in house, Patrick Topping, on two occasions in 2014.
David’s updated take of the classic jacking house sound shows a maturity beyond his 24 years – straight up house music, a touch of techno, beats swingy enough for the small rooms and powerful enough for the big rooms.
As they say, all killers, no fillers
