Real Name:
Laurence Samuels
Profile:
Born Laurence Samuels in Cleethorpes, England, London, moved to the States in 1991 to pursue a degree in Communications. He began DJ'ing while at college, at first for fun but before long he became addicted to the music he had grown up listening to in the UK.

Dave bought his first keyboard in late 1996, and by early 1997, had released his first song entitled "Blazing Pianos," co-produced under the group name Junior Camp. This "housey" first release on a Florida's Kaleidoscope label did surprisingly well in a breakbeat dominated market, received radio play on weekend mix shows and was charted by popular radio stations in Florida.

Dave's second Kaleidoscope release, "The Rhythm EP," was co-produced by Dave's Junior Camp alter ego, and outsold its predecessor within two months. "The Rhythm EP" was also given to Paul Van Dyk who played the record on the Radio One FM Essential Mix and charted it in Mixmag, Muzik and DMC magazines.

Dave and Junior Camp released "Clap Your Hands" in late 1997, which was quickly licensed to several mix CDs in the U.S. "Clap Your Hands" was embraced by the late DJ Tony De Vit and charted in Muzik Magazine, and by the end of 1997 was licensed to the established hard house label Tripoli Trax. Released in March 1998, "Clap Your Hands", became Tripoli Trax's 32nd and biggest ever commercial release, storming the U.K. singles chart at #7 and selling over 7,000 copies in two weeks. It even received airplay on the giant Radio 1 FM.

Dave then formed his own label, Yes Mate Recordings. Since Yes Mate's inception in 1997, Dave London has continued to be at the forefront of cutting edge club music and has released six singles which have been licensed to countless mix CDs by magazines and labels such as Mixmag, Moonshine, Caffeine, Funkwax, Streetbeat, Tripoli Trax and USA Records. In the November issue of BPM Culture magazine, Dave was featured alongside Paul Oakenfold, DJ Icey and Adam Feeland.
