Dave Stewart / DJ
I began DJing way back in 1984, collecting various styles of music from Jazz / Funk / Soul / Rare Groove and Disco and started building his name by playing in Wine Bars Pubs and Nightclubs as well as on various pirate radio station’s, at that time, such as, T.K.O Radio (Total Knock Out) , People’s Choice Radio and in the nineties DreamFM and Kiss100FM and in recent years House FM and Point Blank FM.
When the house music scene exploded in 1987 in London, Dave moved into clubland, where he started to play at various house music parties. ‘Escapade’ at the Chelsea Venue, (home of Chelsea FC) and promoters of the famous ‘Black and White’ parties where he DJ’d with the likes of, Rocky & Diesel (XPress2), Andrew Weatherall and Carl Cox to name a few.
During that time also DJ guest spots at ‘The Crazy Club’ at London’s Astoria, Busbys and the Limelight Club. Not long after Dave moved into club promotions, promoting parties across the capital under, ’The Workhouse, WildLife On One’ and ‘Face The Music Productions’, which Dave ran for many years and built a large following.
