Biography

There’s a joyful exuberance that comes from improvised music, as pure unfiltered creation meets with talent and skill to create accidents and moments freed from the shackles of structure and predictability. That David Koch’s early forays into music were driven by improvisation speaks volumes for the excitement and energy that emanates from him as a producer today. Any artist will happily regale an audience about formative years spent listening to the family record collection, and some may have even started out with instruments, but in David’s case his creative arc began when he first picked up a French horn aged 6. It’s telling that he decided to leave behind the prescribed path of a classical musician and preferred to improvise, even before he picked up the saxophone six years later. At the tender age of 17 David embarked on a career in Jazz and Popular music by getting accepted at the Conservatory of Music 'Hanns Eisler' in Berlin where he studied jazz-music for 5 years. These foundations in classic music training are still a critical factor for his current work as music producer, Dj and especially audio-engineer and music educator today. Growing up and practicing Jazz in Berlin, arguably the capital of modern electronic music David soon began to shape his future career as a performing electronic-music artist as well as building his impressive Studio. Releasing his first record on his label MEANDER in 2007 at the age of 22 was the beginning of a productive discography containing over 35 releases on various labels including Cocoon, Vakant, Visionquest, Haunt, Amphia, Salon Records and more. DeWalta has been featured in publications such as Resident Advisor, MixMag, XLR8R, DJMag, Meoko, Trommel, Raveline, Groove, De:Bug and many more. Since 2020 DeWalta established an audio engineering and online music education business for in-person music production mentoring end education. His services are available here: www.dewalta.com
