Pete Davis’ father was a musician and before he could read, he could guess which notes his father was playing with his eyes shut. The idea of music being an essential part of life surrounded him growing up and took him through music school and on to the Guildhall in London. It was here, in the late 80s, that he discovered synthesisers. He spent months hunched over a BBC model B and a second hand TV, adding more and more machines that could all run together. After working as a programmer and keyboardist at Power Plant studios, Pete worked as a session musician – including on the second Spice Girls album. The Human League’s Phil Oakley introduced him to modular synths which led to an obsession which was encouraged during the year-long recording of New Order’s Get Ready. He moved to Stockholm in 2004 and built his own studio whilst continuing to travel the world: to Vancouver with Shakira and London with Spike Stent, and making beats and keyboard parts for Gwen Stefani, Bjork and Enrique Iglesias. In 2010, he released TAP3 with James Banbury under the name Dadahack. Together, they founded music company Component whose client include Saatchi’s, McCann-Erickson and Fallon. Most recently, Pete has worked with Maverick Sabre and Sarah Brightman, as well as Ford, Unilever and Cathay Pacific.
