Was born and raised in South Africa, and currently resides in London. His love for electronic music got ignited in the 90’s, to the sounds of Orbital and Leftfield. Quickly latching onto the melodic and hypnotic tones of techno, he made the transition from DJ’ing to producing in 2002.
He used to go by the alias of Anauel, creating a unique mix of soothing techno and deep house – occasionally touching on electronica and ambient dub. Anauel is known to feature raw, organic textures of female vocal tracks, layered on ethereal, evocative and captivating audio landscapes.
These days he no longer uses an alias. His style, still soothing techno, is more soulful with rich textures, creating ambient deep-chill.
What’s most interesting about David’s musical side is how he draws on his graphic design knowledge when he’s recording – and vice versa. In his mind, both call for an understanding of how to apply imagination to create palpable, enticing sceneries.
David has released music on Kindred Sounds, Ethica Recordings, Arabica, and recently Secret Music.
