David Starfire is a producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ based in Los Angeles and San Francisco. His production style is eclectic fusing world music with dance and hip hop and everything in between. His new album titled “Bollyhood Bass” will be released on Six Degrees Records on January 12th, 2010 as a follow up to 2007’s “Bombay Beatz”. He’s developed quite a following and his unique sound is catching the ears of music fans across the globe.

David is signed with the internationally known label Six Degrees Records, home to artists such as The Orb, Bebel Gilberto, Banco De Gaia, Cheb i Sabbah, Karsh Kale, Midival Punditz, Michael Franti, DJ Spooky and many others. His tunes have been played on BBC1, NPR, National Geographic, XM radio and various stations around the world. The songs merge world instruments with vocals in Hindi, Punjabi, English and incorporating dance and hip-hop beats to create an exciting new modern worldly sound.

David’s heritage is Creole and he follows in the footsteps of his grandfather, Oscar Rouzan, who was a famous horn player in New Orleans and played with the likes of Paul Simon, Pete Fountain, Al Hirt and numerous other great jazz artists. His family background is also rooted in the art of Voodoo and rumored to be related Marie Laveau, the voodoo queen of Louisiana. David started playing the guitar at 8 and by 17, he was composing, producing and recording songs in his bedroom on a 4-track and could play 5 instruments. He then became enthralled with electronic music and gravitated towards computer music production using sampling and drum machines. By 19, David was in a signed band and touring the states with the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Filter and Skinny Puppy. After years of experimentation in his home studio, he mastered the art of mixing and recording electronic music and traditional live instruments together. After a brief solo career in NYC and several bands later, David was part of the critically acclaimed band Cellophane Masses in San Francisco. Soon thereafter, his interest shifted towards world music and he started incorporating rich, textured world music sounds into electronic music.
