Biography

French urban legend that is known for making House and proper underground electronic music since the beginning of the 90's - 30 years in the music industry, founder and keeper of the [briquerouge] label, home of the best french electronic renegades since 1999. Artist in various styles, dj and innovator always in search of new ways to distribute and value Music. It is very difficult to present David Duriez without writing an encyclopedic tome as its influence on the House music in France was decisive. Since its inception in 1992, David released over a hundred records under his name, tens under various pseudonyms, outputs mainly vinyl on the most renowned labels like 2020Vision, Ovum, Systematic, Pokerflat, F Communication, Under the Counter, Stickman, Classic Music Company, Crosstown Rebels, The End, etc .. (the list is long, see Discogs.com to be convinced) and as many remixes for some of the greatest (think Moby, DJ Hell, Telex, Random Factor, Johnny Fiasco, Paul Johnson, Kenny Hawkes or Mr.C). Founder of the label Brique Rouge in 1999 and a whole galaxy of other labels, he participated in the creation of internationally recognized labels such as Robsoul, Freak n'Chic or Rz Muzik. At a time when David had federated online the cream of the House producers worldwide via a forum (far and long before social networks and Discord), he was notoriously nicknamed "the producer of the producers". Today David still try to keep it real when it comes to Electronic Music wheither it be House Music or totally different chilled music. No boring Minimal or Dull House whatsoever ! In a time where two thirds of the tracks being released each week are sounding the same, either a click and paste formula track made on Ableton Live in 4 minutes or an Electro House anthem with a predictable rolling bassline when it's not just a classic being sampled to death, Duriez still think there's hope for House & Techno. Having played all around the world the 90's and 00's, having his name on more than 200 vinyl records as producer, composer or remixer, he surely knows the game. For years, you could read in his biography that he had refused to champion the filtered disco-abusing sound of the mid-90s and that this has set him apart from those DJs and producers who over saturated the market with disrespectful cut-ups. It is even more true today with too much electronic music outthere, not half being worth listening to. Instead, David has carved out his own niche with his pigeonhole defying Brique Rouge label, and his helping to redefine the nations underground music. Brique Rouge has released deep house, jacking house, tech-house, acid house, vocal anthems and much more... Definitely a label for open-minded people, not stuck in one genre of House. Don't believe the Hype but listen to the music ! One of the most conscientious artists on the scene, the size of David's discography speaks for itself. David is well known for playing Techno influenced underground House Music, versatile and timeless, it can be deep, acid, banging, vocal or techno, it doesn't make a difference except on the dancefloor, the dj booth being probably one of the place where he is most at ease along with his studio. At one time deemed the producer's producer (since he created a forum specialized in house producers meetings in the 2000's), David Duriez transcends the boundaries of the industry, going a step beyond the banal and delivering the real deal.
