Known as "The Baron of Techno," Dave Clarke has established himself as an accomplished techno DJ and producer. Born and raised in Brighton, England, Clarke ran away from home after his parents divorced and began DJing at various venues to make a living. By the mid-1990s, he had nabbed the attention of the electronic music scene with the release of a series of EPs entitled "Red," which showcased his ability to include a variety of influences--breakbeat, dark electro and hip-hop beats--into his brand of techno. Since then, Clarke has continued to progress the genre, releasing several LPs, performing at various renowned festivals and hosting his own radio show after relocating to Amsterdam.
