The summer season landed with a bang last week as Dave played not only arguably the best festival in the world (twice!) but also three of the best clubs in the world too with yet more to come this week and next.
Kicking off at the legendary Glastonbury Festival at John Digweed’s Bedrock party alongside Darren Emerson, Danny Howells and John himself was just a taste of things to come for the week ahead. A packed out Spaceport lapping it up until the small hours as the festival came out of the traps at one helluva pace. Glastonbury is the most awesome of festivals. A weekend which every music lover should experience at least once. The thing is, once you’ve had a taste for it, you’ll want to be back every year.

Next up was a flying visit to Greece on the Saturday for the best summer club in Athens, Bolivar Beach Bar where Dave DJ’ed together with Blondish, Phonique, Sharam Jey and more before swiftly returning to Glastonbury on the Sunday for a Festival closing set in the Glade Area with his Selador Recordings label partner, Steve Parry. As weekend’s go, they really don’t come much finer.

No rest for the wicked though as Wednesday brought the second Selador’ Recordings party at Watergate in Berlin. A complete sell out at one of Berlin’s longest running and respected clubs, Dave & Steve were joined by the label’s Florian Kruse & Justin Massei for a night to remember. There areno cameras allowed though in Watergate so you’ll just have to take our word for it. Or even better, get yourself to our next gig there later this year. Watch this space. Then it was on to Northern Ireland for the legendary Lush who are in the midst of their 21st birthday celebrations. Ahead of our next Lush Classical gig at the SSE Arena in Belfast in October which is already over 80% sold out, this was the perfect warm up as Dave joined fellow Global Underground legends Timo Maas and Darren Emerson for a big night out on the beautiful Irish coastline. As the good people of Lush like to put it… “Oi, Oi Oi f****ing Oi!”
Treble trouble – The GU boys Dave, Darren Emerson & Timo Mass are back in town at Lush, Portush, Northern Ireland.
And it doesn’t stop there either. With two more appearances scheduled with Darren Emerson & Danny Howells as part of their ongoing 3D project, Dave hits the esteemed Rex Club in Paris and Latitude Festival in the next two weeks. Plus further trips to Greece and Canada are also lined up. And all of that is before August even arrives! Summer 2017 is looking hot.
