Sparky - Signals

GDM (Glaswegian Dance Music) pioneer – Sparky (aka Dave Clark) is back on Numbers.

Having spent the last year on lockdown in his luxurious garden studio we have finally managed to wrestle two tracks out of his ageing hands.

Signals is an all-new track, first heard on Dave’s Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 (aired as part of Jackmaster’s Made In Glasgow Documentary), and now in the sets of Ben UFO and JD Twitch. Signals is classic Sparky, nailing that sweet spot between the proto-techno sounds of British synth pop and the dancefloor nous of the Motor City.

The flip is a snarling metal-bashing beast called ‘Tigress’ which comes direct from his archives. We’ve been on at him to release this one for almost a decade and after playing a 192 mp3 at a pretty boisterous Numbers x Optimo party last summer, Sparky finally relented.

Sparky - Tigress

One day we’ll convince Sparky to let us release all the music sitting in his vaults but for now here are two gems from a man whose music has played a pivotal role in the history of Numbers.

About Sparky
Dave’s a bit of a legend. In the early 90s he was a member of Glasgow Techno band State Of Flux who released on JD Twitch’s old label T&B Vinyl. Their first live show was supporting The Black Dog in 1992 at an old Glasgow venue called Industria, and they were also the support at the first ever Jeff Mills show in Glasgow. Later on Dave would release records under the name Truffle Club and regularly collaborated with JD Twitch on remixes under the Optimo (Espacio) banner. Dave and his brother Craig also released an ep under the name ‘Music At Nite’ for former Numbers label Wireblock. Most recently, he’s been working under the name LUMA for Optimo Trax.
