With over 1000 album credits to his name, Dave Darlington's work has touched many lives and garnered much deserved praise in the process. 

Whether composing and producing the soundtrack to all six seasons of

the groundbreaking HBO series, OZ, or applying his jazz skills to mix Miles At The Fillmore, Dave's work always shines.

It's a little known fact that Dave has been on the Sonic the Hedgehog production team from day one, helping to make some of the most

recognizeable themes in video game history. And, he not only mixed the record, but has a song of his own on the Free Willy soundtrack, which went gold when it came out.

It would be a crime not to mention the J-Pop and Rock that Dave is proud to have worked on over the years. Wakadanna,

Minmi, Misia, Yuko Ito, Shinji Takeda, Toshinori Yonekura, Iho Fukuhara, and Misa Joey are just a few of the excellent Japanese artist who have sought out Dave's expertise over the years.

Dave's number one hits include: Bob Sinclair "Love Generation," Bob Sinclair "Rock This Party," Phyllis Hyman "Don't Wanna Change the World," Roger Sanchez "Another Chance," Pete Heller "Big Love," Jennifer Holiday "Think It Over," and Jocelyn Brown "Fun"
