Dave Clarke - DJ Broadcast 162 - (12-07-2011)

Something about Dave Clarke:
Educated at Brighton College, Clarke ran away from home at the age of 16 after his parents split up. After sleeping rough for a while, a friend offered him temporary accommodation. All that kept him going was his love for music, initially Hip Hop and post-punk (The Damned are a favourite of his to this day) and the money from his job in a shoe shop. He soon managed to blag himself a DJ set at Brighton club Toppers. The night became very successful and even worried a rival night, in which a young John Digweed held residency. From then on Clarke gained popularity, getting club invites from round the world playing his blend of funky peaktime rave-techno. In the late 80's he used to write reviews for a few UK magazines, namely Mixmag Update, Generator & ID, and was the first to review Aphex Twin and made sure that artists whom he respected at that time would get coverage. In the 1990s he began producing and releasing music using the moniker "Hardcore", which, due to strange rules on duration for singles, became a UK number one dance album beating Whitney Houston and Enigma. This project was subsequently licensed to Belgium label R&S, enabling Clarke to be one of the first UK based artists to record in the R&S studio in Gent and get signed by the label.. After this he recorded under various guises, including Graphite & Fly by Wire, but in 1993 he dropped these names and recorded only under Dave Clarke. Recognition of his talent came in 1994 when a series of EPs with the collective name of Red and his debut album Archive One received rave reviews, as they were seen as being innovative and crossing genres, something not common in the Techno scene at the time.. After the success of the Red-series John Peel gave Clarke his well known moniker "The Baron of Techno" (probably derived from The Red Baron), which stuck with him ever since.
