Pezzner entered the spotlight in 2008 with his initial offerings signed by the well respected London-based deep house label Freerange. His first release "Other Lover" gathered mass attention by the house music community after appearing on Laurent Garnier's Resident Advisor Podcast (RA. 107) and John Digweed's Transitions Radio show. And so began Pezzner's lustrous dance music career, spinning off some 15 singles, countless remixes and 3 LP’s with Dirtybird, Get Physical, Crosstown Rebels, Visionquest, Strictly Rhythm and many, many more.
Pezzner's work could be said to be serious, with an abstract artistic sensibility, lofty percussive themes and intentions to create hypnotic soundscapes for the body as well as the brain. His 2016 LP 'Title Track' on Get Physical is a 9-track walk-through the footholds of house, techno and ambient with a healthy touch of experimental where it counts. Beatportal wax lyrical how his music "blows like a cool breeze through the stale air of a market crowded with by-the-numbers deep house" and DMC World Magazine note how "Dave Pezzner continues to re-define perceptions with his latest album ". 5 Magazine describes Pezzner to produce “future classics made for dancefloors in the here and now.”
In 2015 Pezzner founded the boutique imprint, “Hunt & Gather” with a focus on leftfield percussive rhythms and dance floor rarities. His “Native Language” project for Hunt & Gather was listed in Dixon’s Resident Advisor 500 year-end chart as one of the five most inspirational tracks of 2015. “When it comes to eclecticism, few electronic musicians can replicate the sheer ingenuity that American producer David Pezzner invokes within his mosaic compositions. “ – The Electronic Beat “Strange noises, tropical bird chirps, and unintelligible voices wander in and out of the ethereal tones, all things tied together by one dope hand-drummed beat. It's alluring, to be sure, and it's perfect for Pezzner's first official release with Dirtybird Records.” - Billboard Magazine Live shows and DJ sets abound not only in Europe, Pezzner has traveled across East Asia, Australia, Eastern Europe and South America moving the dance floors of some of the most beloved global venues and events including Dirtybird Campout, Space Ibiza, Fabric London, Womb Tokyo, Rex Club Paris, Output New York, Rio de Janeiro’s Sugar Loaf, and Chicago's famed Smartbar.
