BringBackTheBeat presents Dave Congreve
Dave has been at the forefront of the UK’s dance music scene since the early 90s. He kick-started his music career in Nottingham, initially at Venus, before helping to shape the post acid-house clubbing era in the Midlands through his seven-year weekly residency at seminal club, The Bomb. Quickly earning him a reputation as one of the finest and most important residents in the UK, he regularly played alongside Derrick Carter, Laurent Garnier, Andrew Weatherall, Derrick May, Carl Craig and Harvey, to name a few.
After moving to London in 1999 he played at some of the biggest clubs and nights across the country such as Fabric, Back2Basics, SubClub, The End and secretsundaze. He became resident of Dig Your Own Rave alongside Jamie Jones, Matthew Styles and Rob Mello at the infamous T-bar, leading to bookings across Europe, and regularly playing in Ibiza, Paris and Barcelona.
Dave has also entered the world of production too, most notably with his critically acclaimed off-kilter techno project Repeat/Repeat. He has remixed for the legendary Andrew Weatherall, and his productions and remixes have appeared on labels such as Leftroom, Wiggle, Transparent Sound and Rotters Golf Club as well as a full-length LP on Soma Records.
