Dave Clarke is a name of at least three artists:

1) A simplification of David Maurice Clarke (b. 19 Sep 1968, Brighton, England - aka 'Hardcore', 'Fly By Wire' and 'Directional Force'), a 'techno' producer / DJ, who is often ascribed the status 'The Baron of Techno'. He débuted with the single 'Hardcore's "I Like John"' (1990, 'XL') and, excluding the "'RA.EX007 Dave Clarke - 2010.11.12'" interview, his latest is the album "'Dave Clarke Presents Remixes & Rarities 1992-2005'" (Nov 2006, 'Music Man').

Clarke has a reputation as one of the world's best techno / electro DJs, though always an outsider: from his stormy 1980s childhood, to his tempestuous relationship with the media today. As a fan of radio, Dave shares contemporary insights freely, on UK, Belgian, Turkish and Dutch radio (e.g. for '3VOOR12''s 'Whitenoise').

In 1993, Clarke became involved in the early months of 'Daft Punk''s career, upon approach by 'Thomas Bangalter' and 'Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo'. The band presented him and 'Stuart Mcmillan' ('Soma' co-founder), with demo tape - leading to their début, 'Daft Punk's "The New Wave" (Apr 1994, Soma)'.

2) A singer-songwriter (b. 31 Mar 1983, Oxford, England), who is influenced by 'New England' rock, 'English folk rock' and 'new wave funk' guitar.

3) A mis-tagging of 'Dave Clark', a Philadelphia, PA, USA singer-songwriter, who has contributed to several acts: vocals, guitar, bass, keys and drums. Solo recordings include: "The Cali Comeback" (2007).
