D.A.V.E. The Drummer
If you are into the harder end of Techno Music, you may have already come across one of D.A.V.E. The Drummer’s records.
Hailing from the London illegal warehouse party scene that exploded in the 90’s, producer D.A.V.E. The Drummer started the techno label Hydraulix as an output for his production ideas. The label intended to bridge the gap between the Acid Techno of his previous productions and a darker form of techno that dave was experimenting with in the studio. Hydraulix made some big waves in the Hard Techno scene throughout the 2000’s and is still going strong to this day with many of the releases hitting the top Ten in the Beatport Hard Techno Charts. Tracks from Hydraulix have found their way into the playlists of some of the worlds top DJs as well as having a huge following of underground Techno DJs across the globe.
The more recent output on Hydraulix reflects the recent shift toward a darker stripped back techno sound and the label is still at the forefront of the techno scene winning respect from many DJs and taking on board fresh artists as well as releasing tracks by seasoned Hydraulix regulars.
Still a hard working DJ and Producer, D.A.V.E. is responsible for remixes and productions for many great techno labels including Reklusive, Naked Lunch, Phobiq, Elektrax, Techburst, and of course Hydraulix.
