Dale is a fixture of UK dance music, with almost four decades behind the decks. A former dancer, promoter of legendary parties like Knowledge, artist manager and label owner, Dale is a visionary DJ; one of the first to explore the links between funk, boogie and proto-house, then going through phases of industrial techno, Detroit techno, and acid, right into the softer tech house sound he spins today.
In 1982, Dale was behind the decks in London clubs like Heaven. He cut his teeth playing soul, funk and boogie in clubs and on pirate radio station Phase One, until landing a slot on Kiss FM in 1986. Over the next 16 years, Dale became London’s answer to The Wizard, with his Abstrakt Dance show and Outer Limits mix CDs – introducing a whole generation to the cutting-edge sounds of Detroit, Chicago and beyond.
