Voted the BEST SET of 2003 in Ireland by the listeners of the 2fm Sessions Tour.
In the 1990s, he began producing and releasing music using the moniker 'Hardcore'. This project was subsequently licensed to the Belgian label R&S, enabling Clarke to be one of the first UK based artists to record in the R&S studio in Ghent, and get signed by the label. After this he recorded under various guises, including Graphite and Fly by Wire, but in 1993 he dropped these names and recorded only under Dave Clarke. Recognition of his talent came in 1994 when a series of EPs with the collective name of Red and his debut album Archive One received rave reviews, as they were seen as being innovative and crossing genres, something not common in the techno scene at the time. After the success of the Red series, John Peel gave Clarke his moniker, 'The Baron of Techno' (probably derived from The Red Baron), which stuck with him ever since.
