Dave Mothersole (Swag Records)
€15 (incl. 1 drink)
Taking his early influences from the beach parties that so amazed him in Goa during the middle to late eighties and combining them with the original spirit of acid house, Dave Mothersole started Dj’ing in 1990. He initially made a name for himself on the early tech house scene playing at parties like Wiggle and Heart & Soul. He quickly developed a style that defied categorisation by seamlessly fusing deep soulful techno and gritty bass line fuelled house with ethereal otherworldly electro .
Unpredictable but always exciting, his driving tech-y rhythms, emotive melodies and psychedelic trance like keys have seen him captivate crowds at many of the worlds leading clubs. MOS, Fabric, The End, Zouk (Singapore), Amnesia (Ibiza), Love-e (Sau Paolo), Fuse (Brussels), Dance Valley (Holland) and Homelands are just a few of the venues he’s played, having taken taken his unique sound to parties in over 50 different countries.
Production wise he’s released over twenty records on labels like Swag, Eukahouse, Intrinsic Design and Sensi and has put out four groundbreaking compilation CD’s. He has also previously presented a weekly show on Kiss FM for 5 years.
Dave lives in Croydon, South London with his partner Joanne and two kids.
Tony Cusack‘s love of electronic music came at a prepubescent stage in the mid 80’s after hearing kraftwerk’s ‘tour de france’ whilst insistently watching ‘Breakdance – The Movie’ aged 9. Developing a love of synth bass early on but having grown up isolated from any significant electronic music scene; cusack was forced to pay regualr visits to his cousins’ in the UK. The rave scene in early 90’s Britain left a lasting impression and by 95 cusack found himself living in London. Beguiled by the city’s underground party circuit and clubs like Lost and The End he soon began buying records and organising nights with friends in old squats and small creepy venues around town. “I could’nt mix at first so i’d play 2nd room sets.. mostly electronica.. stuff on warp and rephlex; skam… mille plateaux”. But it was only a matter of time before his skills would come to surface. Now u can hear him relentlessly spinning anything from freaky chicago acid trax, dreamy detroit techno, 80’s soul & boogie to aphex twin and donald byrd. In the last year cusack has moved back to cyprus (a land blighted with many trance-monkeys and hardhouse affiliates) where he lives well under the mediterranean sun, preaches the deep-house gospel, makes music and dreams of playing a set in Jabba’s palace.
