Always involved in creating, composing, mixing and turntablising, he began his production career with the Boogabaloo ep on Sismic, soon followed by his remix of Brett Johnson for the Brique Rouge imprint. He also produces with Dan Ghenacia under the moniker U&I.
In 2005 he delivered his first floor filler, Free Kit, released on Freak n Chic, Dan Ghenacias label (Dan, resident dj at DC10 in Ibiza, voted best club of the year by Dj Mag). Sven Vath, owner of Cocoon, and DC10s twister too, asked David for a remix of Oliver Koletski. As David is sending him back a demo cd with the remix, it will them become a Cocoon release.
