New Staff Announcement: Dave Clarke

We are honoured to announce that international DJ/Producer Dave Clarke aka The Baron of Techno will join forces with the Audio department at SAE Institute Netherlands. Dave Clarke will be teaching in the new Electronic Music Advanced course and the Audio Production course as of September 2017.

With a 30+ years track-record, excellent ratings and an extensive discography, Dave Clarke is a true electronic dance music pioneer. Dave will reinforce the Audio department with his expertise in audio production and music performance as well as with the experience acquired over the years straight from the music industry. After a long history of hit releases accompanied by incredible live performances, Dave felt like the time has come to send the elevator back down and pass on his wisdom to the next generation of music producers. This is a unique opportunity for students to receive first-hand experience and feedback from a globally recognised and widely respected music artist.

Welcome to the team Dave Clarke!

Dave Clarke Bio

Dave Clarke is a DJ with an anarchist streak a mile wide and punk in his soul. Technologically, he’s an early adopter with the studio to prove it, but he also embraces sounds outside the staunch electronic dance remit, from Nick Cave to Savages to old favourites Bauhaus. Such music informs his attitude as, using Serato on a 13” Macbook Pro Retina for his ruthlessly effective, fat-free club sets, he pushes the worldwide boundaries of what techno and electro can be. After a break , recent years have seen him make his presence as a producer felt again, working with Dutch partner Mr Jones (Jonas Uittenbosch) as _Unsubscribe_ and dropping remixes ranging from John Foxx’s seminal synth-pop gem ‘Underpass’ to Gesaffelstein, Detroit Grand Pubas and Octave One. Not a week passes when he doesn’t live up to his nickname, the Baron of Techno, a moniker given him by the late, great BBC Radio DJ John Peel.
