A Superfreq party with Mr.C and David Scuba. Going b2b are Alex Windsor and Lick the DJ. Rounding out the party is Trev Campbell.
Raised on a diet of underground house music in the legendary confines of New York’s Twilo during the late 1990s, David Scuba is now coming into his own. At the same time as holding down an arduous day job, he has been an influential A&R for labels like Timeless Groove and Real Music Deal overseeing releases from numerous international names in the past. Now, though, his closest ties lie with the legendary MR C and the Superfreq label they run together.
As well as producing his own solo tracks and remixes for the label – which have gone on to be supported by Adultnapper and MR C himself at parties across the globe including Sunday school for Degenerates at WMC – he has also released on Riff Raff alongside Mikael Stravöstand, much to the delight of fans including Magda, and has teamed up with Dance Spirit to great effect.
David is also the co-owner of Superfreq with Mr.C and Luke vB where he holds down resident duties on a regular basis. As a DJ his talents spread much further, though, taking in events across the globe (from WMC to DEMF, Resolute New York to Superfreq London) playing alongside the likes of Carl Cox, Nic Fanciulli and Layo & Bushwacka!
On top of this, David is responsible for promotion, staffing and scouting new locations for Superfreq LA events. One of his crowning glories to date includes arranging an un-announced gig with old friend Loco Dice who invited Marco Carola to play a very intimate 300 capacity show back in 2011.
So the future is bright for this ever rising star, with more remixes coming on the first few releases of the rejuvenated Superfreq imprint, DJ tours in the pipeline and collabs with the likes of DJ Pierre and Silky pencilled in. As such, the world should watch out for the ever-essential talents of David Scuba.
Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late 60's. He started MCing in London clubs aged only 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio's Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver & Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at the legendary Camden Palace in London, going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal pirate radio station Kiss FM. Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987. This inspired Mr.C to become a DJ to learn more about his beloved House & Techno music so in late '87 Richard took to the decks. Mr.C has since organized, promoted & been resident DJ at: Fantasy ('88), Base (Dungeons '89), Release (91), Harmony (92), Drop (93), Cyclone (94), Vapourspace (94 & 95), Flavour (The End 95 & 96), Subterrain (The End 95 — 2002), Superfreq (Worldwide 2002 — Present), Super Disco Freq (LA 2010 — present).
Mr.C held down a weekly radio show called Future Music with Kiss 100FM in London from 1993-2002 & has presented TV shows for MTV, FH1, VIVA & BBC. To say that Mr.C is one of the most iconic DJs in the world would be an understatement.
In December 1995 Mr.C opened the legendary night club The End in London with Partner Layo Paskin of Layo & Bushwacka! fame & then AKA bar 3 years later, which celebrated its 13th anniversary in December 2008 & was lauded as one of the best night clubs in the world, which completely changed the face of clubbing in London & beyond. Sadly The End & AKA closed its doors for good on January 24th 2009. 1 Chapter closes & another begins.
Mr.C is founder & owner of Plink Plonk records, co-founder of End Recordings & founder & co-owner of the Superfreq label, which is now releasing music prolifically.
Mr.C has recorded under the names, Myster-E, Unity 2, Nu Jacks, Bass Bureau, The Shamen, Mantrac, Somnambulist, Animus Amour, Killer Loop, Mr.C & Tom Parris, Mr.C & 16B, Sycophant Slags, Indigo Kidz & East LA Tek.
Mr.C is best known as front man, songwriter & producer of the pop group The Shamen with whom he notched up a string of top 10 hits including Move Any Mountain, Love Sex Intelligence, Boss Drum, Phorever People & the UK number 1 smash hit Ebeneezer Goode. These hits were hits the world over. The Shamen album Boss Drum went double platinum in the UK & they also won a highly coveted Ivor Novelo for Songwriters of the year UK in 1993. Richard's currently recording solo as Mr.C & is also doing collaborations as the Indigo Kidz with Affie Yusuf & with Noel Jackson as East LA Tek & has recent releases on Poker Flat, Get Physical Records & Adjunct Audio as well as his own Superfreq imprint.
