Daddy DJ biography

Daddy DJ is a French dance project created in 2000 by David Le Roy, Jean-Christophe Belval and Charly Merkiled.

David, the vocalist, was born in New Caledonia. After 13 years of classical and jazz piano, he went wild over electronic music. He left Nouméa and came to Paris at the age of 21, after a year of work on productions and remixes of South Pacific artists, and entered the ESRA, a sound engineer school in Paris. As for Jean-Christophe, the keyboardist, he is native from Calais. He discovered electronic music and bought his first synth at the age of 15, after many years of classical piano lessons. After an experience in recording studios, he started producing and remixing (Gigi d'Agostino, Blondie, Dead or Alive, ...). He began to work as a teacher at the ESRA, where he met David. The teacher and the pupil decided to start working together : they listened to each other's productions and finally composed their first track in common in one night. Charly, the DJ and third member of the project, was born in Martinique. He started hosting a radio show on his school local radio at the age of 14, that's how he had his first contact with turntables as a DJ. His first influences were soul, funk and rap.
