We're kicking off 2016 with a bang! We're bringing one of techno's true underground heroes, *Function*, to Manchester. And it's BYOB to boot! Function's accolades rival some of the best; not only is he a founding member of the Sandwell District collective, owner of Infrastructure New York an Ostgut recording artist but also a Berghain resident.
Hailing from New York, he was seduced by techno music when Jeff Mills held a residency (as well as his own) at the Limelight in the early 90s. Dave started to produce music and from the mid-90s onwards, put out music on Damon Wild's Synewave and his own Infrastructure imprint.
Together with Karl O'Connor (aka Regis) he worked as Portion Reform, putting out uncompromising music on Downwards and becoming the only non-Birmingham producer to release on the label. In late 2007 Dave moved to Berlin and, still working with O'Connor, set up the acclaimed Sandwell District imprint which soon developing a cult following and forcing the hand of change within electronic music - with 2010's album, Feed Forward, being a particular highlight.
In 2013 he took up the helm as a resident of Berghain where he's regularly held down the world's most famous dance floor ever since.
