THE MUSIC SOUNDS BETTER WITH KNOWLEDGE
Dave Wakeham doesn’t concentrate on only one music field, unless it’s a club residency or a particular concept to adhere to for an event.
After years of in-depth study and hands on experience through many musical eras its possible to specialize or mix various types of music into one very interesting night.
Mixing the different genres is called the surprise effect, you would never know what is going to come up next , but it seems to fit into the previous record somehow. This knocks the spots of spotify.
Specializing or grouping certain geners appeals to sophisticated audience and this is what Dave is able to do without moving out of focus.
