Miami Sessions With Rod B. presents Big Daddy Brown MUM episode 214

Rod B. & Mareis bring you the Miami Sessions @ Miami Underground Movement

At 52 years old Dave “Big Daddy” Brown has been around since before the birth of dance music. Or for that matter, punk, reggae, new wave, hard rock, hip-hop, rap and metal. In fact, he came rushing headlong into this world in 1961, the same year Patsy Cline was topping the charts with Willie Nelson’s “Crazy”.

He was ten years old when he bought his first ever record, Led Zeppelin’s immortal classic, “Immigrant Song”, which remains one of his favourite songs of all time. The joy was short-lived though, his mum made him take it back to the record store as it wasn’t considered “appropriate”...but it was cheekily swapped for Deep Purple’s “Demon’s Eye” instead.

Variously falling in love with sounds like Led Zep, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, The Ramones, Motorhead, Pantera and Tool, Big Daddy’s die seem cast in either the thrash of punk or the dark grooves of heavy metal. But dabbling in the early ‘90s rave scene in Sydney Australia he became exposed to early psy-trance and acid house.

But it wasn’t until a monumental set by the legendary Carl Cox at Bondi Beach Sydney on NYE 2000 that the die was cast. Within two days Dave had bought his first decks. Absorbing sounds from iconic techno and house DJs like Carl Cox, John Digweed, Green Velvet and Jeff Mills, he started the long and lonely journey of every true DJ, to find his own sound.


Dave’s live sets invariably involve a variety of styles with techno and tech-house as the basis but a preference for dark techno. Well regarded for his programming and immaculate blend mixing his sets are never planned whether live or recorded, believing in the true essence of a “live” performance.

Having played predominantly in Asia, he was offered residencies at the iconic Bed Supperclub and Glow in Bangkok where he successfully pushed a tech-house sound in an electro-house world many years before it before it became fashionable.

However Big Daddy is the antithesis of most DJs and doesn’t seek fame or fortune in any way, in fact he keeps out of the limelight and finds it completely ironic to even have had bio written for him.

He is legendary for turning down gigs to allow younger DJs to take the opportunities available. It’s through this modesty and generosity that he has cheekily become known as “Big Daddy “. Dave is vehement in his belief that music comes first and its future resides with the young.

Well known in the Brisbane (Australia) underground scene, Dave has played alongside some of the biggest names in international techno although he’d never mention names. He currently only plays certain events by invitation from people who know their music.

Knowing that the music will never die, Dave’s plans are to build his own beach-club in Asia in 2015 where he intends to see out his days sharing the music he loves so much without any distractions.

He truly does hope to leave this life in a DJ booth with his headphones still on!
