Bio: David’s early musical experiences were a blend of diverse influences, growing up in a Nigerian household on a West Indian council estate in the North of England. Surrounded by Afrobeat, Motown, funk, and soul records at home, he was also exposed to early 90s jungle, ragga, and hip-hop at his youth club. As a teenager, David was part of a grime collective, recording and distributing mixtapes at school. He later explored guitar-based music before forming the live hip-hop and soul band Normanton Street in Brighton in 2011. Needing a DJ for their events, David learned to mix on old CDJs, seamlessly blending genres while maintaining high energy. In 2018, he launched NAWA!, a monthly Afrobeats club night under his record label QM Records.
