Playing 210 songs in just 18 minutes and making fellow DJs cry, bundling Dave Winnel into a rabble of DJs and producers would be an insult. Seizing a unique applause of his own, this Sydney tied artist relies on his own beat, being defined as Australia’s next Dirty South and Tommy Trash. With a will to rewrite the masses of electronic music, the Dave Winnel sound strides on a melody with a groovy, hard drop- relinquishing a spot in a specific genre.
With only the need for Ableton Live and a midi controller, Dave Winnel’s blissful performance method has roped in credit globally, making him an Ableton Live genius after the view status of his online videos hiked. Building his sets with loops, acapellas, cuts of tracks, effects and sounds he has unraveled a talent like no other. From Summafieldayze to Pacha, to his Chinese Laundry residency and across most venues in Australia, the Winnel wonder kid sounds may too good to be true.
Shortly on release with Michael Woods’ label Diffused Music while also having been on the Vicious Recordings roster; Dave delights with a hanging inspiration. From timid classical music mingled with his younger years exploring the rave scene where artists notably experimented with sound and effortlessly crossed boundaries, his roots wear strong. Happy Day Records, his own baby has too begun with only the mightiest.
The buzz track from Dave is Achtung!. Staking #22 spot on Beatport’s progressive chart, it also swallowed up countless artist’ music collections on repeat. Dropped at EDC by Porter Robinson and Arty, followed by main stage glory play by Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso at Tomorrowland, the track has been ablaze. Highlighting Axwell’s shows and turning the heads of Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Dyro and more, the track made Michael Woods shed a tear after Calvin Harris played it before he did! With Draw Your Guns featuring Sherry St Germain, another notion for chart envy was gained with ARIA Club chart posy #18. Official remix vibes also have ran strong with Example’s Changed the Way You kissed Me sitting at #2 on Aria charts while Rebecca & Fiona’s Bullets stole #11 and out on Ministry of Sound, Flo Rida feat Sia Wild Ones shone.
Dropping a remix on Spinning Records for NERVO & Rune RK and signing up for the best show duties with Ministry Of Sound's 'Soapbox Touring', is (just quietly) spelling out the year for Dave Winnel.
