Davide Pappa, aka "Dave K", is taking the house music by storm as one of the most talked about musical talents to hit the scene in decades. At the 2010 and 2011 Winter Music Conference in Miami, Dave K headlined the Afrique Electrique/Maude34 party, playing to a packed crowd and solidifying his place as house music's rising star.
Born in Latina, Italy, Dave K is no stranger to the soulful, eclectic sounds of American music royalty. He grew up listening to legendary artists like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and Miles Davis. As a kid, Dave K studied guitar and piano and soon after began composing his own music. It wouldn't be long before Dave K applied his musical discipline and trained ear to the turntables under the soul stirring spell of house music.
His love for house music was nurtured at a young age by his uncle, Cristian Male, one of Italy's most beloved DJ's. Enthralled by the rapture of the hypnotic beats and infectious rhythm, Dave K began following his uncle to his DJ sets and at the tender age of 16, Dave K got his first taste of the DJ life as the opening act for his uncle. Only a couple of years later, Dave K became a club favorite landing gigs at "House of Gods" and playing some of the most exclusive clubs throughout Central Italy.
Among Dave K's biggest influences are some of house music's most notorious DJ's and producers including Larry Levan, Franki Knuckles, Tony Humphries, and Timmy Regisford. But it was the musical genius of Grammy-award winning DJ/Producer Louie Vega that transformed Dave K's love for house music into an insatiable passion. Channeling this passion into his life's work, Dave K began producing music full-time in 2005, and in 2009 he took over as the resident DJ at "Moonlight Party" in Rome.
As part of Maude34, Dave K is one half of the creative team led by founder and CEO, Gale Murphy. Together, Dave K and Gale have designed several music inspired collections of t-shirts for music and fashion enthusiasts. Dave K's unyielding passion for his craft as a DJ helped spawn Maude34 Entertainment - a cadre of house music DJ's and producers who live for making house heads break out in their best footwork and for introducing house cultures to people everywhere. in 2011 Gale and Dave with the help of other partners, founded the brand Are You Afro? A movement that was created to celebrate the musical and cultural roots from the motherland Africa of any human beings. In a short time are you Afro? has become one of the best underground party in new york, attended by the real House Music lovers. In March 2012 Are You Afro? made its first appearance at the Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach with great success. During the WMC 2013 Dave K released, and also presented his first album: Dave K WMC 2013 SAMPLER, whose tracks were played by some of the best djs of the conference. In the late 2013 Dave K spent two months in South Africa for the Dave K's Are You Afro? South Africa Tour that was a great success, he played in many of the most important venues in SA, he has been invited to play in the biggest house music radio stations like Y fm and SABC and he also played at the RedBull Music Academy of Johannesbourg. In South Africa Dave K started many collaborations with local artists.
