He took time out of playing and producing for two years to study sound engineering. This polishing of his technical knowledge allowed him to fully express his ideas and create work of outstanding quality. Both DESIGN MUSIC and CONFORM, released his work initially, earning positive critical appraisal internationally. In time, Davide began to struggle with the limitations imposed on his music by these labels and decided to set up on his own.
He therefore set up the SKETCH project, to finally be free to create sounds true to his pure tastes. Three years later he set up his second label, MINISKETCH, geared towards more minimalist productions. Davide Squillace is also known as erikOtanabE, an alter ego born as an outlet for another tangent of his genius where he assembles different kind of beats, with greater liberty taken using sounds & samples. His tracks are a mix of minimal tek and glitch house, resulting in something the discerning techno listener can enjoy at a club as well as pottering about the house cooking some beans on toast.
Never one to sit still, after some releases under MORRIS AUDIO, MORRIS CITY SPORT, IRMA and other labels, Davide decided to start a more houzy and glitchy label with some friends and thus the TITBIT was born.
