Age used to be the biggest contender in determining the credibility of an artist, for the most iconic DJs today stay very much relevant in their late thirties, forties and fifties. Germany’s youngster David August could prove you otherwise. At only 21 years of age, the now Berlin-based August needs no number to prove his worth.
August grew up under the influence of the piano, and at just 17 years old, has already played alongside some of the most legendary icons in the field, namely Carl Craig, Troy Pierce and Oliver Koletzki, to name a few. In 2010, he joined the Diynamic label family, under Solomun, a Hamburg-based electronic music label that is known to be one of the most forward-thinking and eclectic in the scene. August proves that he is mature for his age having played in clubs all around the world, such as Berlin’s Watergate, Amsterdam’s AIR and London’s Corsica Studios.
This clubbing season, legendary underground venue Sankey’s Ibiza hosts DIYNAMIC NEON NIGHT every Tuesday, and August has joined forces with the likes of Stimming , label-boss Solomun, and fellow label-mate Kollektiv Turmstrasse in spinning at one of the White Isle’s biggest weekday parties.
Check out David August’s promo mix for Diynamic’s NEON NIGHT, released August 10th. The mix is a beautiful combination of the hot, flurry heat which radiates from Ibiza’s windows to ours, and the smooth jazz-house that tingles the warm in our entering-Autumn hearts. In Ibiza or not, August and the whole Diynamic crew at Sankey’s continues to party on, and on, and on… We may not have traveled across the waters to reach your ray of sunshine, Ibiza, but we definitely feel it.
