1 pointEvening / morning or whenever you’re reading this. I’m still quite new here and noticed there’s only a few active users that post or reply to topics, so I thought I’d throw out the question to see what genre of music you like to mix, spin or produce or if you hold residencies ect.. Me, I’m located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, I focus on tech house – techno – base house, started mixing when I was 18, did the club scene for 2 years and gave it all up. 10 years on I’m now getting back into it. Gig wise I do some private parties / house parties and the od roof top Saturday – Sunday session. I’d like to take it a step further and do events weekly but I need to regain my skill set. Fire away 🤙
1 pointHey dude! Yeah there's a few common names that float around here. So DJing wise, I started when I was 15 and started doing 16, 18 and 21st parties and stuff. Moved into the wedding scene but hated it so entered a few dj comps and started playing in nightclubs. It's a pretty hard gig here in Perth. Breaking into the scene is pretty much like anywhere else but on a much smaller scale. I started playing in venues when I was 19 and pulled the pin when I was about 26. I had a decent run but I there were a few people that didn't want me around and drove me out of the biz. Kinda sucks but I'm happier this way. It was getting real messy towards the end and I was losing all the passion I had for it. Producing wise, probably been doing it as long as I've been djing. I have some stuff floating around the usual online stores, had some of my tracks played by some Aussie big wigs back in the day which is always nice. I also played alongside a few of them. I felt stuck here in Perth, like I couldn't progress any further than where I already got. The scene here changes at a rapid pace too so unless you adapt you really have a short life span. But that's ok coz I played some killer shows and broke some hearts (other djs egos) in the process so I'm happy with that 🙂 I'm still claiming I was the only DJ to ever have an encore at my last residency haha I'm also claiming that I promoted one of the biggest Saturday night events the city had seen in recent memory. I'm willing to debate that with anyone that thinks otherwise 😂 All that aside, I still dabble in a bit here and there but definitely not taking it as serious as I once was. Having said that, I have been fishing around for the motivation to get back into it so we'll see what happens in the future. So that's a super small and watered down version of my life. Who's next?
