David Hülsken, born in Bussum a village right under Amsterdam, began his musical journey
at a young age. Inspired by Jazz, Soul, Blues and Funk he began to play piano. He soon disvovered his talent, he joined several bands and ended up working in a piano store which allowed him to play piano all day. After visiting his first Awakenings back in 2002 he was impressed and motivated to start organizing his own parties and also change his way of making music. When moving to Utrecht he bought his first pair of turntables and vinyl and started to perform as a DJ under the alias David Art. Together with DJ Wesdex and Hidde Pluymert he started to organise the infamous party called Magnetronik in Utrecht-residence Poema.
In 2009 David and Ricardo started producing and performing together. With Funk and Jazz influence and rolling funky techno as their main theme combined with the use of live piano in their sets makes them an unique experience.
Besides their live act performances their music has been released on several labels; Modern Playground, Push it Records. The release on Push it Records is a very special remix of the classic anthem: Lack of love by Charles B & Adonis.
