Thanks. I think so too.
My new single with AKON and Luciana will be titled "Electricity & Drums (Bad Boy)" and will be released very soon. We are doing remixes and shooting a video now!!!
Hey Dave, I have another question for you. When you do remixes for different artists (say like Rihanna) does Rihanna or the artist go to your studio to record the vocals for your production or do you create vocals that sound like the artist for the track? By the way my favorite remix by you so far is the "Diamonds" remix by Rihanna. I love the original song as well but I like your remix version better. Anyways please let me know how you do the vocals for each track. Thanks, Steve B

I usually get sessions with all of the music; i.e. drums, bass, synths, guitars, and vocals. Then I decide what I would like to use. It's very very rare that an artist cuts new vocals for my mix but it has been done a few times..
Hi Dave! Hands down, yours make up the bulk of my favorite remixes and I love when you do original tracks too. I recently saw Tiffany perform and she sang "Move Your Body" (or "Move Ya"?) and said it was a track with you. I have (and LOVE) "Just Another Day" but didn't know this was with you too. It's such a hot banger, what happened with it and will it ever see the light of day? Thanks so much!

It's totally up to Tiffany whether or not she will release the track......
Dave, Huge gay fan from Germany. Numerous mixes of yours of some of the real classics from recent years, awesome job. Now, what´s your impression of Europe, what are countries that stand out for you, what is the main difference to US gigs? Any links to Germany or gay German festivities? Chris

I have yet to travel to Germany but I would certainly love to! I've been staying close to home here in Los Angeles when I play out recently, so I can get back to the studio as I have loads of work. The few time I've traveled to Europe have been fantastic and I've found a true love of music in general that is a bit different from the US.
Having said that, the US listeners are really going crazy for dance music at the moment and it seems all of the overseas crowds are coming here! It's very exciting.
Thanks for your email - hugs back from the US!
Hi Dave, I will be 37 in the next couple of months. I have been dreaming about getting music for about 10 years or so. I am now taking music classes at the Academy of Art University. The main concern that I have is my hearing problem. I wear 2 hearing aids. I have been wearing hearing aids ever since birth. Music is my love. But I am afraid of going deaf. I was wondering if there is any way of mixing in the studio with the music at a reasonable level or does the music have to be at full blast? Please let me know. Thanks, Steve

It's exciting to blast the speakers when you're making music, but not essential. In fact things that sound good at loud levels don't necessarily sound good at low levels. If your condition allows you to listen to music at moderate levels, it would be, suffice to say, that you can make great sounding stuff no matter what the levels are. I am constantly paying attention to how loud my speakers are and I make notes to try and turn them down whenever I can so I can save my own hearing. :)
Good luck to you!
I'm a huge fan of your work. I was wondering if you do, or would do, remixes for indie artists? Or do you only do remixes for major label artists? Thanks!

I do mixes for everyone!
Do you work with your own analog synth or a keyboard to put sounds into your pruduction remixes or do you prefer to work quickly with tracks for labels using wav sample Kits or virtual synths on computer? Paul

I like to use everything available to me. If I have a little time, I will use my analog synths, preferably a Studio Electronics SE-1 or maybe a Roland Jupiter-80, or perhaps one of my drum machines - 808, 909, or LinnDrum.
If I'm in a rush Ill use Nexus 2 or Sylenth.
Any plans soon to came to Houston or Mexico. I love your show!

Thank you Esteban.
I'll actually be in Houston - at Kryptonite - on Sunday, March 31st. Hopefully I'll see you there!
Yo Dave, are you gonna be at the Meet Your NARAS LA Chapter event on the 5th?
Mar. 1, 2013 by Ben
Yes, I will. See you there!
When can we hear the Scream and Shout remix? I know its gotta be bad ass- I cant wait to hear it!

I think it is.
I get asked this a lot. Honestly, it's all up to the label whether or not it gets released.
