David Waxman

David Waxman has been on the scene for fifteen years, racking up residencies and guest spots at prestigious clubs such as Twilo in New York, Crobar in Chicago and Space in Miami. He's bounced among styles from progressive trance to chillout, with stops at most points in between. When he's not busy living the glamorous life of a globe-trotting DJ, Waxman spends his time as A&R rep and label exec for New York's Ultra Records. On tour to promote the release of his upcoming mixed disc Ultra Electro 2, he's likely to turn in a set that favors plenty of freaky beats wrapped in bowel-rupturing bass and Day-Glo synths. And don't be surprised if he also spins a few remixed new-wave classics, tribal house workouts or spine-tingling, grin-inducing trance favorites here and there to keep things lively. Keeping things cohesive with such an eclectic range takes a rare talent, and by all appearances, Waxman (due at Vinyl on Saturday, August 4) has it — and then some.
