Dale’s steady rise to prominence has seen him gain support from some of the biggest names in the music Industry, including Matthias Tanzmann, Steve Lawler, Jamie Jones, Richie Hawtin, Maya Jane Coles, Kenny Dope, Dennis Ferrer, DJ Sneak, Hot Since 82, Richy Ahmed and Pete Tong.

Despite all of this, Dale has still managed to find time to get in the studio, with a ‘Who’s who’ of labels, having released music on label heavyweights like Objektivity, VIVa Music, Noir, Suara and Get Physical. As well as having tracks feature on compilations for Richie Hawtin’s Minus, Defected and Ministry Of Sound.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A selection of tracks I love playing at the moment
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Absolutely love everything that Luca Donzelli does and I love ‘Light Off’ by Di Chiara Brothers (which comes out on my label Wreck< in a few weeks)
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
No real special ingredient really. I just like to keep the energy at a decent level and (try) to make sure it flows right.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
My last 3 gigs in Argentina in Rosario, Buenos Aires and Mendoza were all amazing! That place is mental and the crowds and promoters really know how to make a special party.
What have you got coming up?
Got a couple of fairly local gigs in Liverpool and Manchester next, then London and back then go back to South America. Release wise my next one is a remix of Santé, which comes out on Avotre, then a lot of new stuff for 2017 😉
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Just that I hope they enjoy the mix and if they’re listening to it an afterparty, I hope they’re wrecked and are having a class time!
