October 8th – David Glass joined Brian Murphy for an exclusive live mix
David Glass joined Brian Murphy in the studio for a live mix ahead of his set at The Warehouse Project for Yousef Presents Circus.
5 years ago, a fresh faced raver happened over a couple of djs playing at a club night in his home town of Liverpool, this was to be David’s first taste of authentic house music at its finest. An Easter Sunday at the legendary Circus Club with Yousef and Ricardo Villalobos in control was to change the life of a young David Glass perpetually. Blown away by his first experience of this new world, David Glass knew he had finally discovered his sound.
Honing his studio craft at the tender age of 18, David was originally influenced by early hip hop and old school 90’s dance, yet after the infamous visit to Circus his style evolved. Now leaning towards the darker side of house, his music and dj sets are laced with a broader jackin’ tech essence, yet still retaining that infectious groove.
Circus and Circus Recordings owner Yousef was still unaware of the developing synergy, ironically discovering David 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, zzzLuciano, 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.
