Creator of the very successful and largely downloaded "Momentus Mix Show", it is a multi genre showcase that leaves one more to desire featuring an array of scratching and mixing techniques while switching tempo and style gracefully.
Although Momentus has claimed his stake in the New Zealand urban scene as a talented Hip Hop & Rnb DJ, his appreciation for all things music is made evident in the multi genre selection suited best toward the demands of a variety of events, club nights, private shows as well as the evolving music industry. He can be seen to constantly push the boundaries between genres to create an eclectic musical mix to suit all tastes.
