Created and hosted by Uchi (aka Isabella Douzoglou), the beloved Dead Air series fueled Miami's WVUM airwaves for years with the best of the underground via their weekly segment. This past December, Uchi bid farewell to Dead Air's first home with a big blowout at the Electric Pickle. Luckily for fans, however, the show is back on Klangbox.
Success, though a subjective matter, is sometimes based on talent, sometimes luck, and in rare cases, sometimes both. For Hamburg's David August, it's safe to say he's fared well with both talent and luck on his side. A pianist since age 5, David excelled at his craft for years before entering the DJ realm at age 15. By 17, David had already shared the booth with notable acts during his residencies and soon began releasing his first productions via Stil Vor Talent.
Today, the 22 year old Diynamic rising star continues to impress fans around the world in the studio with his latest release, Epikur, and on stage with recent gigs in Miami, Israel, Netherlands, Paris, Mexico and Argentina--and that was just in the month of March. In the midst of all this, David also recently released a new mix for Innervisions' podcast series. Recorded live, the mix includes the likes of Riperton, Boards of Canada, Curtis Mayfield, Flying Lotus and, of course, some of David's own work. In just under an hour, David directs us on a short but special traverse through his musical style and influences.
