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 in production and remixed (Gigi d'Agostino, Blondie, Dead or Alive, ...), and 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 animating 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. At the beginning of the 90's, the discovery of techno pushed him to released a EP (Black Power EP) under the independent label RadiKal Groov Records. Thereafter, he remixed a single from Gigi d'Agostino for France. The team has also remixed XX's Give It Up, Edsilia's The Second Floor.(under the name of J&B), Blondie, Tom Jones...

Their first single Daddy DJ, released in December 2000, was a huge hit in France. It remained # 2 in the charts for 6 months. 1 million CDs were sold in France. The videoclip is a cartoon that tells the story of a little boy that would like to mix in the parties just like his daddy. On stage, David sings, Jean-Christophe plays the keyboards and Charly mixes. They gave their first show at the Zénith in Paris for the Halloween Techno Party and then took part to the Trophées de la nuit at the Lido (Paris), then they started a tour through France from disco to disco.

2001 : The next single to be released was entitled The Girl In Red, with 9 different mixes. They came their first album Let Your Body Talk. They remixed Sarina Paris' track Look At Us.
