David Glass – Edward K – Unity Radio
Edward K chats with David Glass ahead of his gig at XOLO, Manchester for DEEP DOWN LOW and his #LIVE mix, Saturday 24th, 7-9PM.
David was discovered by Circus and Circus Recordings owner Yousef – 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.
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.
