DAVID TODD is a true inspiration as one of the greatest r&b funk-based club spinners that I have ever met along with other great funk based spinners and friends of mine-Larry Levan, Larry Patterson ,Tee Scott, Danny Krivit and Walter Gibbons. As a guest DJ at my main club the Ipanema in NYC, David performed an incredible 2 minute segway mix using Prime Time's Good Times to Kellee Paterson's Turn on the Lights ---and spinning barefoot in the Dj booth in the process.
Dave had remarkable and an intense focus on the technical aspect of spinning.A great RCA disco promo man and fabulous remixer and good friend.One of his special gifts to the industry was Nowhere by artist Hokis Pokis.David was truly blessed for his ability to creatively spin records and promote them as well as remix them.
