ad hoc first stepped up behind the decks spinning hardcore in 2006 as DAVEoftheRAVE. He has excelled as a DJ in the time since then, working hard to showcase his love of pianos and chaos to audiences across the Northeast, including sojourns on Toronto’s internationally-renowned Goodfellaz stage and at the World Electronic Music Festival. Just as important, he has been a driving force behind Nocturnal Commissions, Toronto’s world-class hardcore promotions group. Through his role as part of the NC team, he has helped bring some of the highest-caliber talent in hardcore and hardcore breaks to the Toronto scene, sharing the stage with such legends as Slipmatt, Billy Daniel Bunter, Gammer and more. It is this devotion to good music, good people, and good attitudes that has made DAVEoftheRAVE an integral part of the global hardcore community. He has now taken on the moniker 'ad hoc' in order to put a spotlight on hardcore breaks, his latest passion (but only because there are even more pianos).
