He was an early pioneer in rave culture in the U. Also, he was partly responsible for bringing drum and bass to America. He first produced raves and club events based on Stash - DJ DB - Shades Of Technology (A Drum And Bass Journey) U.
DB is currently working on several more art-related books and projects. Since DB has become known in the U. S,  as well as signing DJ Darathus kick starting his artist career. DB dropped out of school at age 16 and began pursuing aspirations of being a photographer. He attempted this with little success. In the late s and early s, he worked as an assistant to multiple photographers, one of whom specialized in photographing works of art using large plate cameras.
Another was Peter Kodik Gravelle, the punk rock photographer responsible for many of the Stiff Records sleeves. Some photos taken by DB did make it to print, including sessions he did for the Flying Lizards.
DB fell in love with the city and decided to leave London to give New York an extended try. DB and close London friend Dorian Chinner decided to work independently to create better events and make more money.
DEEP had been drawing in the cool ex-pats, but few outside that circle. They agreed, and the combination of U. After only a month of word-of-mouth, and distribution of just flyers, DEEP was drawing in people per event. The party itself was illicit and had no permits, so it was constantly on the move. It cycled through five consistent locations, always one step ahead of the authorities. It was the first party to open up Irving Plaza as a public event space.
The success of this album led to six follow-up volumes. However, DB's ex-partner Rain King - Counting Crows - 08.18.2008 Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, Buffalo, NY the club night would not come to an agreement with the label over the name. Pini then proposed the name Sm: e Communications, which was one of the first uses of emoticons in a name.
With the originator of the concept, Marc Thorpe, they organized live events in San Francisco from Through a relationship formed with German Techno musicians Air Liquide by releasing their music on Sm: e, DB was invited to become a partner in their Temple Records store in Dara also worked at the store.
While he began to DJ around the U. DB suggested to Paul Morris that while he was deciding on a career path, he take on DB's bookings along with those of a few other DJ friends and connections. That seed of an idea has grown into arguably the best and most respected electronic music booking agency in the U. They later brought in Sean Shuter as a fourth partner.
Byit had grown out of its 9th St. BBS, as locals knew it, had to close its doors or reinvent itself. The partners chose the latter, creating BBlessing, a men's fashion and lifestyle boutique that also sold records. While it received very notable press, it was still not able to survive the slow economy and in closed its doors for good. Within a few months, the pair realized that overall, the label was not set up for what they were trying to create.
Before they had a chance to react or resign, they were approached and poached by the UK dance label Ministry of Sound. Ministry of Sound was in the process of setting up operations to launch in the U. However, Ministry of Sound soon pulled out of the U.
In DB, now using his full name DB Burkeman, expanded into another creative field by publishing a book on sticker art. The pair are currently working towards touring the project as a museum quality exhibition for Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art features the art of over stickers by more than artists.
