Born 1974 in Perugia, Italy, David Liam started listening to music from birth on, thanks to his parents pumping their stereo system all day!! When David was only one year old he had already his first vinyl bag and turntables.
In the 80’s, when he was about 6 years old, David’s family started traveling with him to London to buy the newest records .
1984, when David was 10 years old, his parents decided to make him a gift for his birthday: A stereo system consisting of a turntable, 7-band equalizer, tape deck, FM radio and amplifier (instead of toys!) David started playing and listening to all kinds of music all day, every day.
At the age of 14 he started to listen to Jazz music, which is not common for a child, and he also loved the first Hip Hop, Disco and Dance music releases from the USA.
When David was about 14 and a half he got booked for his first gig; playing at a New Year’s Eve Party in a legendary dance club in Perugia, Italy, called Casanova.
David Liam was using his mixer and his turntables every day and in the mid 80’s he became fascinated by the invention of the sampler and started soon sampling music himself using his own equipment, the Akai S6000 and Moog-Prodigy.
David started to save money so that he was able to always buy the newest records and as many as possible!! His favorite genres was Hip Hop, Disco and Dance Music, and a little later he was struck by a new genre that was being born, called “Underground Electronic”, better known today as House Music. David liked the repetitive, deep sounds and rhythm. He began to be influenced by House Music, Deep House, and Garage. David was a clubber since childhood and attended many Italian nightclubs, but soon also started to visit American, British and northern European clubs. In northern Europe he discovered a new genre at the time: techno, tech-house, progressive-rock and punk.
