Lunar: When and why did you start DJ'ing?
Dave: I was 16 and disheartend with our local youth club. My friend and I thought we could do a better job and so we built a mobile rig from scratch...and so it began.
Lunar: Who were your influences?
Dave: I have never really had any infuences as far as DJ'ing is concerned. Sasha inspired me, but that came many years on.
Lunar: Do you remember the moment you realized this would be your career? And what did your parents think about that?
Dave: My parents have never really liked the fact that I made DJ'ing my career. It took them a long time to understand that it was here to stay. I really did not have any intentions of making it a career it just turned out that way.
Lunar: If you weren't DJ'ing, what would you have done with your life? Where would you be now?
Dave: Probably still driving a truck in England.
Lunar: Where are your current residencies?
Dave: Buzz, Washington. Pure, Chicago. Evolution, Philly. Axis/Avalon, Boston.
Lunar: Where is your "paradise"? Is there a place you never want to leave or can't wait to get back to?
Dave: We just moved and so I can honestly say paradise is home. I have everything that I need right there. It took a long time to find our new home and so I really feel that there is no place on earth like it.
Lunar: Are you working on any projects right now? When will they be out?
Dave: As we have just moved, studio time is on hold but I will be starting work in November for some new things which will see light of day late next year.
Lunar: Living or dead, who would you like to work with, given the chance?
Dave: John Lennon. Dave Gilmor (Pink Floyd). Peter Gabriel.
Lunar: Who's your hero? Why?
Dave: J.R.R Tolkien. He created a world (middle earth) which captured my immagination as a child and has me faoming at the mouth as an adult because they have just made a full length movie of Lord of the Rings.
Lunar: Do you have any regrets about your past? Is there anything you wish you could change?
Dave: I believe in never regretting anything you do.
Lunar: If you could only use one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
Dave: "Real." Lunar: Why did you choose that word?
Dave: Because I am.
Lunar: If you were a Muppet (yes, as in Jim Henson's Muppets)... who would you be & why?
Dave: Kermit...because my wife calls me "Kermit" and if you want to know why you will have to ask my wife!
