| ARTIST DAVID PHILLIPS|
David Phillips was born in 1976 and very early started
getting on his parents nerves with loud music. In the early
eighties, he was into pop from A-Ha, Michael Jackson and
also soul, hip hop, dirty and hard heavy-metal as well.
One day he saw a TV trailer from ID-T for its Thunderdome
Hardcore Sampler and since then he was interessted in
electronic music and started visiting the upcoming raves
and parties. After his first rave at the legendary "Alter
Flughafen / München-Riem" in 1992, he decided to DJ. He
has been impressed so much in getting people to dance to
his sound and this passion is still burning.
After some gigs between rock and hip hop DJ´s, he got
asked for his first DJ residency in a club called La Grange. He
played there for about 3 years and because of the bookings,
he met many DJ´s and most of them became very good
friends. During this time, he met his label partner Harald
Klotzberg. Because of the La Grange residency, he got
offered residencies in 2 more clubs, Klangmine & Cave Club
in Ulm. Since then, David has been well known in the South
German scene and bookings throughout Germany results.
As a result of his gigs around Germany, David was booked
for the legendary Nature One (1997) where he played at the
big "Century Circus" tent. At this time, he started to dream
of having his own label and his partner Harald Klotzberg did
as well. During an AfterHour in Winter 1999, both decided to
stop dreaming and they started. Harald already had a name
for the label, Decomplex Audio, and a project name for the
live-act was quickly found. Aqualab & Davis was born.
After their first releases on Decomplex Audio, national and
international bookings resulted. David played big parties like
Nature One, Liberty One, Love Stern Galaktika (Berlin),
Shiva (Switzerland), Street Parade (Zürich), Love Parade,
Space (Ibiza) and so on...
Now, David has several projects running. David Phillips
(Tribal/Progressive House) and David Phillips & Marcel Best
(Electro/Techhouse/Minimal). He produces for different
labels like Basilensis (Switzerland), MUE (Spain), BlackSun
(Spain), Exquisi Tech (Spain), Knob (USA) and in 2003, David
and Harry started some additional labels.
David Phillips is Germany´s #1 Tribal/House DJ and
producer. His album, “The Man on the Drums“ on Global
Ritmico 003 was charted at #2 on the Balance Record Pool
and has received massive support from all big DJ's around
the world. His own 2 labels, Global Ritmico and Approximate
Recordings continue to grow strongly. In the future, there
will be some cool new and fresh productions with a lot of
DJ´s from around the globe on his labels. Watch out.
