Dave Does has been ripping a fierce mark in the dance scenes of Australia and Singapore for over the last twenty years. As former chief resident behind the eclectic Art Bar (The Butter Factory), Dave’s famous mix of tech wizardry and track selection has kept ravers since he exploded onto Singapore’s scene ten years ago.
Dave’s ascent into the pantheon of top tier DJs began in the underground rave scene of 1990’s Australia. He has been drawing influences from far and wide ever since, delving into disco, funk, breaks, and house; digesting these diverse sounds and pushing them back to dance floors with his signature mixing style.
Once David started sliding his fingers on the turntables, his reputation shot through Sydney. Embraced by both club owners and punters alike for his uncanny ability to connect with crowds, Dave played parties in the city’s most popular clubs, eventually earning himself residencies at influential club nights Plastic and Sublime. Loyal party goers returned time and time again to dance themselves to his refreshing blend of sonic bliss.
It’s not just Dave’s eclectic ear that has generated adulation either; his obsessively honed turntable skills saw him winning a litany of awards from the scratch competi- tions he slaughtered. A true craftsman, Dave was being handpicked to spin at Australia’s biggest dance festivals, including the iconic Transmission and Utopia events.
David now has weekly residencies all across Singapore from the two Overeasy bars, The Powder Room and the famous Tanjong Beach Club on Sunday afternoons.
David runs a quarterly party series called Bashup with fashion designers
Mashup and ex Butter Factory owner Bobby Luo.
