Dave Mech (NL)
Coming from a background of playing flamenco guitar at the age of 7, bass guitar and drums, Dave Mech has a strong sense of rhythm which he uses effectively in his techno productions. By using synthesis, field recordings and extensive sampling techniques, he has created his own unique sound. Because of his musicianship, broad taste in music and his fondness for broken sounds, he is able to successfully combine elements that are usually big in contrast to each other. His sound is harmonically rich and mechanical at the same time. The grooves he creates are atmospheric with complex structures while retaining a rough, energetic, and methodical cadence. For his live performance he takes these methods onto the stage with a very compact setup. Live he has total control over the arrangements of his sounds and grooves. This freedom to improvise makes sure he keeps the crowd dancing and mesmerized at the same time.
