"If You're Standing Still... you're wasting Time..". Sounds exhausting? It is! But for a man who lives off Popcorn, 'V' and not much else, this no sleep junkie, see’s it as a way of life. Meet Dave Winnel; Artist, Label Owner, Ableton Guru, & and all round perfectionist!! Winnel has had his gear on ‘GO’ for years and admits he isn’t about to slow down anytime soon. Its all about pushing the boundaries for him and t hinking “yeah that's how it's done, but this is how I'm going to do it, so eat a d!#K!”.
Dave is most recognized for his unique and dynamic remixes, which have flooded the Australian Recording Industry (ARIA) Club Chart top 100 this past year, staying at #2 spot with his remix of ‘EXAMPLE’ for countless weeks, while at the same time his name also sat ridiculously high at positions #5 & #7. Basically a remix package isn’t complete without a Dave Winnel BIG TECH remix included. His originals have also gained the attention of some of the biggest tech house names in the business from Bass Kleph to Roger Sanchez, seeing his flawless production’s finding their way onto the biggest Dance music labels in the world, including, Vicious Records, OneLove & Vacation Records.The idea of mixing 2 records (in any format) together for Dave is boring. Instead he blends loops, samples, acapella’s & full tracks together to create an energetic, live show which takes his listeners on an uplifting journey. His Ableton live DJ sets have become somewhat of a freak show and have grabbed the attention of 1000s of kids from all over the globe seeking his infamous “LIVE TEMPLATE”. Although his template is available online, his current live set’s hood is locked tight. What we do know is he uses some serious routing, loads of sidechain compression, delay action & limiters that’d even tame even the most savage track.
For 2012 expect Loads of new Club friendly Singles, an even more advance DJ show, & a second instalment to his ‘Live DJ Future Loops’.
