Dave Cooper: In the mix
MONDAYS 2000, WED & SUN 0100
A few decades ago Dave was born in his current form resembling a human and starting growing. His mother, driven to madness by her child’s inability to not press buttons, twiddle knobs and flick switches, found it was only music and dancing which calmed him. Musical instruments such as the recorder and triangle became the constant in his life until he learnt how to drink Babycham and go dancing.
Of DJing, Dave says he “only started doing it to kick a bad habit or two and keep the dancing bit,” and has found happiness and love playing music to his adoring fan and being a general international glamazon at clubs around the world & on the wireless. A self-described “hooker for house and disco” Dave attributes his success to the fact that “all them years of drinking and knocking around nightclubs must have taught me summat”. Nowadays he can be found at his residencies in and around the UK and making shows at Gaydio. Dave also enjoys eating food and doing crosswords with his cats, Patsy and Donatella.
Dave Cooper's weekly #InTheMix series of shows is broadcast on Gaydio every Monday at 8pm, as welll as a late night hour of music every Saturday night/Sunday morning at 1am. Each week he serves up some of the freshest sounds from across the spectrum of House music and disco, mixed in with his musical influencers and forgotten classics.
