So how did it all begin?
I began tinkering with electronic music about 4 years ago when I enrolled at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney as an undergrad at the tender age of 32!! I was made redundant from my job in the Investment Banking industry about 2 years prior and when I could not find employment due to market conditions at the time, I discovered this sleeping giant within…it became an obession and started to consume me & then a little techno monster was born!!! Whilst studying at CoFA I also took it upon myself to get acquainted with Ableton Live as well as getting taught Pro Tools at college. Since then I have expanded my knowledge to include Logic as well, so it’s been a pretty serious learning curve and there is always new stuff to keep abreast of. But it’s so rewarding, much more so than selling financial software to dorky brokers and having to watch rugby in coporate boxes to schmooze a**hole bankers!
What was the first club you ever played at?
Arthouse in 2002
What was your first record/cd you bought?
1982 Out of The Blue
What's your favourite track of all time?
All my tracks are like my children, you cannot have a favourite, youy just have to love all the good ones equally
Funniest thing that ever happened while Dj’ing?
2 chicks got in to a catfight and one of them pulled her very sexy tight dress over her head and showed off her amazing body before slapping the other girl. F**kiing gold (good eye candy too haha)
Other DJs you rate?
Ant J Steep, Bump DJs, Jeremy Joshua, DJ Schwa from BEEF Records, Claire Morgan, YokoO, Alex Kid,
So how is the party scene in your eyes at the moment?
Good but can be better. We are not exactly Berlin yet, but we are trying to keep the dream alive
When all the partying is over how do you like to chill out?
With my girl on the couch watching movies, eating Doughboys, Sea Salt flavoured Red Rock Deli chips and a Yalla Chocolate Raspberry Mousse to finich off, F**k YEH!! Oh and going to Ikea and Rhodes on Mondays when there is no-one else there LoL
What advice would you give to up and coming DJs?
Find your groove
Don’t get all your music from Beatport
Play your own style
Believe in your sound
Learn how to mix vinyl
Learn how to produce
Manage your profile intelligently
