Dave Miller


Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, the physical seclusion of living in the most isolated city in the world has inspired Dave Miller to create truly modern forms of electronic music. As a representation of his cities multicultural population, Dave’s music incorporates all facets of his favourite styles of music from which he builds something entirely new.

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, the physical seclusion of living in the most isolated city in the world has inspired Dave Miller to create truly modern forms of electronic music. As a representation of his cities multicultural population, Dave’s music incorporates all facets of his favourite styles of music from which he builds something entirely new. In the mid-late 90’s, before he was legal-age, weekends saw him sneaking into bars that were playing everything from deep Chicago house to Detroit techno, while the weekdays saw him listening to early IDM-influenced electronica. After working odd-jobs while still he was still in school Dave finally saved up enough money to buy a sampler and this gave him the impetus for his new venture into electronic music production. After a quick tutorial on how to actually use his newly bought gear, demos of his first tracks were handed to local radio stations where they were played for months on end. A handful of live sets followed, but it wasn’t until Dave supported German ~scape artist Jan Jelinek that the move from local upstart to internationally released artist began.

Handing demos to Jan, the tracks were eventually passed on to Andy Vaz, Background Records label boss when at age 20 he was instantly signed. Incorporating elements of his early influences – the warmth and funk of Detroit house combined with the innovation and experimentation of electronica, his first releases on the label were deep, emotive and personal. Aiming to move the mind, body and heart at once, EP’s were suited in equal parts to the club or the lounge. In live performances Dave is adaptable as both a solo artist and in collaboration; He has shared stages with artists such as Prefuse 73, Manitoba, Jamie Lidell, Greg Davis, Funkstorung, Four Tet, Portable, Andrew Pekler, Sutekh, Machine Drum and Farben. Improvised collaborative performances with jazz musicians, pianists and fellow electronic music producers has helped keep his live shows fresh and dynamic. Read more on Last.fm.
