Eight years since his last Ovum EP release and David Alvarado is back with the Land Of The Sunchild EP on Ovum.
American born and Los Angeles bred DJ, producer, and artist David Alvarado continues a career that has spanned over 15 years, and is still considered to be one of electronic music’s best kept secrets. He is best known for his work on some of the worlds most respected imprints such as Ovum, Ultra, Peacefrog, Yoshitoshi, Plastic City, Strictly Rhythm, and Guidance, along with his early work on his own label Bomb Records.
David began his career as a DJ running a renegade sound system and deejaying underground parties around the Los Angeles area. He quickly made an impact on the American electronic music scene with his unique style and signature music selection. His work as a producer and artist began to take root after a chance meeting with the legendary Plus 8 duo, Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva, who stumbled across one of his very first works and invited him to be a part of their newly formed Definitive Records. From there David forged relationships, and created a body of work that would take him around the world, opening the door to performances at legendary clubs and events such as The Ministry of Sound, The Hacienda, E-Werk, Tresor, Florida 135, Row Club, Panorama Bar, The Arches, Extrema Festival, Sonar.
David returns to Ovum after a 8 year hiatus from releasing on the label. His “Klugh” release still is regarded as one of the seminal tracks on the label and is still played today. David returns with a two track techno workout that should rock any dance-floor.
