Karl Davies has made an incredible impact on dancefloors across the country since he launched himself into the hard House scene with inspirational dedication and passion in 2017. He threw himself in at the deep end by learning the more technical side of mixing and carving out his own sets like the ones he’d been getting lost in when listening too. As soon as he had got to grips with how to instruct a set of decks to manipulate the tracks he was collecting and in the way he wanted, he was like an unstoppable force.
Along with all the awesome dancefloor moments and after parties shared mixing for hours B2B with everyone to keep the party flowing as long as possible. He loved being able to create the atmosphere in a room with his music and get the dancefloor moving.

Due to him dedicating so much of his spare time to learn a few techniques and practice his skills, he quickly became a DJ who clearly knew how to confidently rock a crowd. So it was no surprise that his name was soon starting to appear on line ups of many well respected Hard House events across the country. In the three years that have passed since he learned how to mix he has collected an incredible array of achievements, becoming resident for Filth Face, Raw Power Recordings and playing events such as Twist, Xstatic Ibiza, Unity in the Sun, Filth Face, Hard Culture, Ravey Days, Korruption, Splat and Off Your Carrot. His favourite achievements being playing Twist NYD and closing Off Your Carrot NYD on two consecutive years.

In 2018 and 2019 he even got the exciting opportunity to take his talent overseas in not one but two different countries. Xtstatic in Ibiza in which he played the pre party at Soho and Unity In The Sun in Kavos where he played the Encoded Pool and Rock In parties along with Filth Face’s party at The Barn.

With Karl’s natural thirst to at excel at everything he does, it was obvious that he was next to delve into the production element of the genre he loved so much. He took to this with the same immense drive as he did with his DJing and in a very short amount of time he had taken every opportunity to work with as many producers as possible and made sure he took note and learned the techniques himself. He had quickly built up an incredible discography of his own production, his debut track ‘Kevin’ a collaboration with Damien Blanes was released on Unbounded Trax and reach number 2 in the toolbox chart. With 19 tracks made to date he has only released 12 and keeps the rest for his personal armoury. So far he has worked with producers such as Dave Owens, Ben Stevens, Matt Clarkson, Nogger, Sean Inside Out, Damien Blanes, Aaron James, Random But Raw, Filthy Kitten, Steve Hewitt, Brendan Ashley, Mark Hard, Wayne G & Matt Wade and having tracks released on Vicious Circle, Fruition Records, Helix Recordings, Tempo Trax, Bezerk, Unbounded, Hi-Five Digital, Pitch Drift Recordings, Inside Out Digital and Filth Foundry.

Karl now runs Nokturnal events alongside founder Dale West and also launched the Hard House platform The Union bringing together multiple brands to work together and help grow the scene. The Union made its mark and went down in the history books for its 80hr live event New Years Eve featuring over 75 Club DJs from 7 countries bringing everyone together during the Lockdown period.

Over the last several years, he has definitely become one of those well-known names you see on a line-up and you take special note of his set time so you know to be there when he plays. His sets are always full of driving energy and the his attention to detail means he’s does everything he can to create the best experience for the people on the dancefloor, this clearly shows by the consistently banging performances he plays out. If you see Karl Davies on a line up, I would definitely recommend that you take note not to miss his set and I can guarantee you won’t stop dancing as he guides you on a gritty, dark journey that will get you charged with energy at each effortless transition.
