Davide Squillace was born in Siena in 1977 and grew up in Naples. He started making records aged 20 after moving to London where he came into contact with the electronic scene for the first time. He started buying equipment and exploring its possibilities. His first track came out on Primate Records, and soon afterwards his talent was noticed by Audio and Contrast who released his next EPs.
He moved back to his home city Naples in 1999 to study at the school of Sound Engineering. He began playing in the city's clubs which are famous for their top quality DJs. The crowds were enthusiasic and Davide was soon launched onto the circuit of Neapolitan techno DJs.
In 2001 Davide produced tracks on Design Music and Conform, but in 2002 for greater artistic freedom he set up his own techno imprint, Sketch, to give the groove and freshness back to techno music. He left Naples for Barcelona in 2004, looking to take the knowledge he had acquired in Naples's underground scene into the capital city of the electronic music world. The following year Davide's first label Sketch evolved into MiniSketch. It was initially intended to be a smaller version of the main imprint, but soon became the main project.
After some releases for Morris Audio and other labels under his alias erikOtanabE, he created Titbit Records with some Neapolitan friends dedicated to glitch-house productions. By 2006 Davide was producing tracks for Josh Wink's Ovum, the German label Resopal and Alex Under's CMYK.
In 2007 Davide joined the crew of Circo Loco Ibiza, rocking the island with a residency at DC10. His records are played by DJs like Danny Tenaglia, Luciano, Dubfire (DeepDish) and Steve Lawler in clubs across the world.
And his own dynamic DJ sets are symbolic of the quality of his music: light and fast and full of strength.
