Currently living in the suburbs of Amsterdam, Dutch-born Dario began his musical journey as a young child at the age of 5. Living above the bar which his mother owned, Dario used to sneak downstairs and into the DJ booth to play records from popular artists of the 70s such as Kool and the Gang, Donna Summer and James Brown
It was through listening to the likes of Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambataa and Doug E Fresh that Dario grew an interest in Hip-Hop, teaching himself to scratch vinyl records and even forming his very own 'B-boy posse' right in the middle of the scratch-hype of the early 90s!
It was at this time that Dario bought his first drum machine, and using his SL1200s and an Amiga 500 Dario was able to start building up his production experience through cutting samples and beat-making.
Then, at around the age of 15, Dario was asked to play at a graduation party. It was here that Dario first heard Acid House and developed an interest in the growing house scene of the time.
After the birth of his son in 1992, Dario took a step back from DJing and producing and slowly learnt the ins and outs of production whilst building up his own studio over the years.
However, in 1996, he entered several turntablism competitions including the Dutch DMC championships - for which he was sent to Italy where he competed to be the world champion. Although Dario was knocked out, he picked up some invaluable experience along the way.
After a long break from the industry, Dario Davide has decided to make his re-appearance as a promising techno DJ and producer
I love many styles and have never had the urge to go commercial so I have always made music just for the fun - this went from hiphop, soul, breaks and trance to techno until about 3 years ago, when I started to focus mainly on techno music which gives me the freedom to combine everything that I like!'
With a number of stunning tracks on the way, including his debut track Bad Hair Day being released in November on Audiojunkie, stand back and watch as this guy makes his mark in 2010!
