It was only in 2008 that Dave Pezzner stepped out of production duo Jacob London, best known for their odd-ball cut-up house on Classic Records, to pursue a solo career but it's been a rapid rise to fame.
After dropping his debut EP for Jimpster's Freerange Records, he had the likes of Shaboom and Ghostly International queuing up for remixes before this year's debut album, The Tracks Are Alive', a collection of lush, organic house.
Listening to his podcast, which takes in everyone from Moodymann and Daniel Wang, to Deniz Kurtel and Solid Groove, it's obvious that his DJ skills are also every bit as good as his production prowess. Deep, jacking house at its best.
