A man like Dave Beer needs no introduction to the dance scene. DJ, producer and promoter of the legendary Back To Basics, the world's longest running house night; He was involved in house music from the heady early days of 1988 and the illegal rave warehouse parties that were synonymous with that time.
Dave found his vocation and started throwing parties of his own everywhere from disused libraries to old mills in the middle of the country. The parties were too popular for their own good and received far too much police attention! As the rave scene exploded to crazy new heights and with the Criminal Justice Bill looming, in 1991, Back To Basics was formed in an old gay club as a kick-back to the whistle blowing, white glove wearing, vicks rubbing and dummy sucking scene at the time.
Back To Basics is now a worldwide institution, with Dave being hailed the king of clubs by Mixmag for his party antics. Dave and his band of merry pranksters carry on their passion and their brand of hedonistic house into the future. Although in their earlier years they well known for their rebellious behaviour, when it comes to house music it is a different matter as the music policy of Dave and Back To Basics is a force to be reckoned with, shunning the commercial sound to bring high quality and cutting edge underground house music.
