Dave Audé is on time and on track. His programming, professionalism and beats all reflect his characteristic ease within the realm of mathematical, electronic music. With more than a dozen years as a veteran producer and DJ, Dave has produced, remixed, and listened to a shitload of records. Like a Ph.D. educated archeologist uncovering ancient treasures, Audé expertly distinguishes classics from worthless sound shards. Perhaps that is why U2, Sting, Coldplay, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Royksopp, Bastille, Ariana Grande, Zedd, Mark Ronson, Erasure, One Republic, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears, Pussycat Dolls, Beyoncé, tATu, Donna Summer, and Korn have trusted him to translate their music into dope on wax.
“The real focus is on the artist and the song,” explains Dave. “I am more dedicated to producing quality music and seeing a record be successful than simply completing a contract.”
In 2016, Dave won a Grammy for his remix of Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars ‘Uptown Funk,’ (which also won 3 more Grammy’s including Record Of The Year).
Dave has also created an unprecedented 112 #1 Billboard Dance tracks (and counting). His Audacious Records imprint was not only Billboard Magazine’s #1 Indie Dance Label for 2015, but it is introducing a myriad of fans to deliciously insane beats that include Audé’s 2016 single, ‘Love Me like You Mean It,’ a collaboration with #1 country artist Kelsea Ballerini.
Dave teamed up again with singer Andy Bell (of Erasure) for their second release ‘True Original’. It reached #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart in March 2016 (their previous single “Aftermath” went to #1 in 2015). Dave served as Music Director for the Pussycat Dolls Tour, crafted music for the feature film 'Nine', and added a few IMDA nominations to his list of accomplishments- all within the past few years. He also hosts Audacious Radio, a monthly podcast that is available for free on iTunes and showcases some of the hottest releases and exclusive remixes. Add that to all his studio work, and you could say the man doesn’t like to rest on his laurels.
As the ultimate ‘go to’ producer, Dave provides the sonic solution. He combines artist development, problem solving and, needless to say, a focused musical sense, to achieve the intended result. Once on board, Dave produces the music that completes the desired package. Whether it’s co-writing and co-producing ‘Kill’em With Kindness’ on the gold-selling album from Selena Gomez (“Revival”), or remixing tracks that top the Billboard dance charts…. Dave is spot on!
Dave has earned a reputation as a master producer and remixer who can start with whatever you throw him and delivers fantastic results. Part of delivering those distinct results, is maintaining his mainline connection to the street – whether it’s his residencies in San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, and Dallas or his special appearances at clubs in every other large city in North America – he’s constantly experimenting with technology and music, absorbing fans’ responses for future output.
Dave Audé is the man that professionals turn to when they want amazing music. Dave’s chameleon-like skills allow him to succeed within any genre of music – from Pop to Rock, from Hip Hop to Electronic. The thing is, his methodology doesn’t change – be it remixing, producing, DJing or writing new tunes. Dave Audé is the consummate professional who delivers the goods every single time.
