David is very proud to know that over the past two decades his contribution to the LGBT+ scene has had a very positive and influential effect.
Living in London during the early nineteen nighties was a liberating experience. The gay scene was becoming more acceptable in open society and David’s curiosity eventually led him to ‘TRADE’, London’s famous weekly ‘After-Hours’ party, held the in notorious Turnmills nightclub.
Raving to the sounds fo Daz Saund, Smokin Jo and Trevor Rockcliffe. It was a certain DJ nick-named ‘Tall Paul’ who David initially ‘clicked’ with. After a few studio sessions with Tall Paul, David was introduced to DJ Tony De Vit ( who, at that time was starting to receive critical acclaim ).
Every fortnight David would go to Trade armed with his latest single cut fresh onto a ‘Dubplate’ earlier that same day. It was here where David homed in on his Production skills and started to turn heads.
Very soon David singed a ‘Press and Distribution’ deal with Mo’s Music Machine. Both of David’s imprints, ‘Planet 10’ & ‘Indalo Records’ where being sold in fashionable SOHO record shops, played on BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM and being blasted out in and around EVERY cool nightclub in London.
One night in Trade, a chance meeting with a very keen A&R named Dave Cross was to change the life of David-H.
DJ Tony De Vit had taking a liking to Passion, as soon to be released David-H track on Planet 10 and Tony wanted to remix it. Witnessing this opportunity Dave Cross soon signed David-H ‘Passion’ to EMI / Feverpitch Records.

After the death of Tony De Vit in 1998
David started working with Tony’s vocalist, Nicki Mac and between them released ‘Estrella’ ( Spanish for STAR ).
David is regarded as possibly THE most successful and famous ‘Dance Percussionist’ on the gay scene. He has performed at countless ‘World Prides’ including London and Brighton.
His fame started one afternoon whilst performing at ‘Tonic’ on the legendary Terrace of Space nightclub in Ibiza. A chance booking accompanying the dynamic duo of George and Steven, professionally known as ‘The Sharp Boys’ was an opportunity that changed everyones lives….!
After his return from a very successful season in Ibiza, The Sharp Boys invited David to accompany them in their ‘Royal House’ night held in London’s famous ‘Heaven’ nightclub. So successful was the relationship and sound of David accompanying the Sharp Boys that bookings hit the roof and they were being asked to perform up and down the UK.
The Sharp Boys introduced David to Craig Elder the owner of the Orange group and thus a working relationship that saw David perform at every party held in FIRE & AREA spanning over a decade began.
As David’s notoriety began to rise so did the level of his performance work. A regular of both London and Brighton Pride David certainly knows how to rock a party and engage with the crowd.
