Davide Rustici aka Dabs, is an exciting, new Italian talent in the new-school dnb camp. His dj attitude got himself to play all over Italy, Europe and Australia with his fresh funk drum and bass rhythms sets.
As producer, he got his first releases on Basswerk in 2007. Winner of the prestigious italian contest Elettrowave Challenge 2008 as “best dnb italian dj-producer”, he signed a brilliant single (Crawler – Weirdraws) on the notorious dutch label Citrus, receiving massive dj support all around the world. That was followed by two 12″ in collaboration with the kiwi legend Cern, on the mighty Leeds based Dispatch Recordings amongst other releases on Triple Vision’s dutch group and other european labels.
For 2011-12 the pipeline sees the heavily supported remix of ‘Back In the Grind’ with Cern, a solo 4 tracks EP on Dispatch, a single 12″ on the respected Horizons Music (London) and some collabo’s and remixes with the likes of Cause4Concern, Bulletproof, June Miller, Amoss and Future Signal to name but a few.
In the years he received big support from big artists like Laurent Garnier, Ed Rush & Optical, Andy C, Cause4Concern, Dj Marky, Chris.SU, State Of Mind to name but a few, and took care of a remix for the mainstream italian band Subsonica for EMI.
