DJ DAVIDÉ aka Davide LaPara [http://www.facebook.com/Davide.CirqueDeBoudoir], has been DJing since the age of 17, and was interested in music at an early age. An old-school boom box was his favorite toy and he made ‘mix tapes’ from the age of 5 which were actually compilations of his favorite tracks recorded from the radio.
Influenced by the music his older brother was listening to at the time, Davidé had an early appreciation of electronic music, including bands like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, New Order, Flock Of Seagulls and Anne Clarke, just to name a few.
Synthesizer based music has been a huge influence from the start, and even presently, the primary style played by Davidé is heavy on synth melodies and synth bass riffs. The most specific dance music genres played currently are Italo Disco (for some nostalgia and some new tracks influenced by 80s Italo Disco), and most forms of modern Electro and Techno, especially Electro Clash, Indie, Nu Disco, Electro House, Electro tech, hard tech, techno, progressive, hard dance, dubstep and dark, dirty, heavy, zombie electro, maximal or any music Davidé refers to as Electro Noir.
Having played most alternative, underground and some main stream clubs in Montreal, Davidé has had extensive gig experience, having also played in Toronto, London and Amsterdam. Here is a list of some clubs Davidé has DJ’d: Parking, Velvet Speakeasy, Just For Laughs Studio, SAT, Club Soda, Katacombes, Coda, Academy, Saphir, Cavo, Cherry, Club Blue, Blueroom, Nocturne (Toronto), Opera House (Toronto), Waakzaamheid (Amsterdam), Area (London) and many others.
