DAVI (David Khanjian)
Hailed as “LA's best kept secret”, David “DAVI” Khanjian Internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, radio host, and label owner grew up surrounded by the sounds of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Deeply passionate about music since childhood, it didn't take long before he was admitted to the prestigious Komitas State Conservatory's music department in Yerevan, Armenia. But it wasn't until his move to Los Angeles that the magic truly began to unfold.
Finding himself at a young ripe age of 20, he began producing electronic dance music, inspired by many world class producers and Djs that frequent the best LA clubs. Having already been the resident of the top electronic music club in Armenia and a trained musician, it was only matter of time that the heavyweights of the industry began to take notice. In a matter of just a few short months, guys like Damian Lazarus, Hernan Cattaneo, Jody Wisternoff and Eelke Kleijn were all supporting David's dance floor bombs.
What followed could only be described as an intense journey deep into the heart. Combining his unique groove, stabbing melodies and deep pads, DAVI locked himself in his LA studio and dedicated himself to polishing his already amazing production skills. The payoff was soon to come and what a payoff it was.
Having always been a big fan of Robert Babicz, David loved and played his music. After a chance meeting, they became really good friends. Having someone like Robert as a mentor, and even being the first person to remix Robert on his new label Babiczstyle, opened many doors for the talented LA producer. A common name in the charts and dj sets of the likes of John Digweed, Guy J, Nick Warren, 16 Bit Lolitas and Neil Quigley he also opens up for guys like Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela and Art Department, Dubfire on a regular basis.

With releases on labels such as Bits & Pieces, Babiczstyle, Armada, Outside The Box, Treibstoff, Anjunadeep Hope Recordsings.
2012 was a breakthrough year by touring 1st time to South America to play in 3 cities in Argentina which was by a high demand. Destroying the dance floors in Buenos Aires, Tucuman & Mendoza. Talented Producer also found himself being the resident Dj of Insomniac, Which was awarded as Best Promoter in the IDMA.
