This new job opened many doors to other interesting contacts which gave him the possibilities for other gigs. In November 2000 he had his first chance to produce an own track with a production team from the French part of Switzerland. His first new born track was named First Impression. Out of a lucky coincidence he happened to meet Marco Reverb Guardia, the mind behind the highly acclaimed Flutlicht Project. (together with Giotto DJ they do their productions for the German Label Overdose under the project name S.H.O.K.K.).
This unique remix happened to become a huge hit in clubs all around the world. The track can be found on more than 50 compilations worldwide. Beginning of 2002 he started to produce the follow-up single with his newly found producers David Kolodziej and Mario Kaufmann. The track called Second Chase has been released in September 02 on Planet Traxx Records. Together with Germany’s Oliver Kaylab Klitzing and Alphazone he again was able to place two famous names as remixers on the record. At the end of 2003 they separated from Mario Kaufmann and, as in return, welcomed Sandro Oswald (Van de Traxx) as our new team-member aboard.
This collaboration started to release several tracks, remixes and projects such as Schattenmann, Emphasysts, Final + Sylas and all the tracks with the name Dave Joy on it and it's still growing. In between the work with his original studiopartners he also did collaborations with several other artists such as Climax69 from Germany. This resulted in the 2004 released track called Skywalker under the projectname Simplex D.S.N. Another project called Basic Dawn was born in summer 2003 on the label Difuse from Uk´s late Alpha-Magic Distribution. They signed the track called Pure Thrust and let Italy’s NU-NRG do a stunning remix. This track was written and produced together with Switzerland’s Franky Fonell & Chris Reece and became one of the biggest anthems worldwide in 2003.
This collaboration ended after producing two other remixes and will not be continued. Pure Thrust will be re-released though in 2005 on Pulsive Records from Germany. 2004 was the year of the big change in his life. After four years of working in one of the biggest Record shops of Switzerland, Number One Recordshop in Zurich, he decided to move to Australia where he continues to build up his reputation as one of the best hardtrance-DJs.
