Through his legendary Prescription Records, Ron has notched up an extensive back catalog of his own productions and introduced several key players. Prescription Records is widely regarded as one of the most influential Deep House imprints of the period. Under the direction of the noted house & RnB production team of Hula & Fingers - canonical figures in the modern Chicago music scene - Ron developed his skills as a producer and musician, incorporating his training as a percussionist into developing his keyboard skills. His partnership with Chez Damier in the early 1990s created the template for Prescription, a label with a signature palette indicative of its nature - a soulful house sound with organic electronics and emotive grooves. Moving to New York soon after, Ron quickly gained respect playing for Body & Soul at Shelter, and hosting his own events at the legendary downtown Manhattan nightclubs Vinyl and Shine. His Giant Step residency at Shine fused neo-soul, jazz-funk, and diverse international influences into a similarly signature dance formula.
Along with his own extensive back catalog, Ron has produced and introduced several key players across soulful music of all genres and borders, including Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Moodymann, Tony Allen, Amp Fiddler, Chucho Valdes, Peven Everett, Jody Watley, and 4hero among others. His labels Electric Blue and Future Vision provide outlets for more experimental productions and commercial reinterpretations that all still bear his unique imprint.
After years of both listening and passionately exploring the genre and the culture, and gaining experience as a clubber in the queer scene of Tel Aviv, it was only a matter of short time before he was invited to open a famous underground night as his first gig, which followed him joining as a resident and filling in opening slots veteran DJs from abroad. Other promoters couldn’t resist and Dave found himself playing regularly at the biggest clubs in Tel Aviv, such as the Block, Alphabet and Breakfast, along with other underground events, alongside industry legends and his musical heroes. Gaining traction on an international level, Dave is spreading his take on house, concentrating on the sounds that originated in Chicago, Detroit, and New York, with a touch of disco and techno. Check out his mix for Permanent Vacation, where you’ll be able to get a taste of Dave’s selection.
