About

Graham Dunn has been involved in the dance music industry since the mid-nineties, with residencies which have included Empathy, Lick It!, The Big Pink One and Sensoria, to name a few. Born in Germany, he moved back to England in time for the underground explosion of the Electro sound. At 10 years old he could be found playing the latest sounds to anyone who would listen. His journey started listening to rough beats and sampled sounds through the mid-80’s explosion of Hip-Hop, closely followed by discovering the US House scene and Techno. Even when not old enough to legally get into a nightclub somehow Graham met all the right people and continued to expand his ‘underground’ musical collection. During the early 90’s Graham became involved more and more in music, helping people set-up club nights and meeting people in the scene at local parties. By this time production was naturally beckoning and using anything he could get his hands on, ‘cut and pasting’ of tapes, vinyl and radio shows started popping up in many people’s collections.

Graham found his feet in the form of progressive house and trance, the likes of which could be heard from DJ’s like Paul Oakenfold. His eyes were opened when the Renaissance One compilation hit the shelves, a totally fresh approach with amazing production. Graham reminisces over the mixing technique and structure of these sets was ground-breaking. Since 1997 Graham has been playing for many well-known promotions throughout the UK and has taken his record box around the world to countries including Greece, Italy, and the USA. Keeping up regular bookings locally and nationally, but still keeping up the free party vibe an individual sound was moulded. His big break came when he was booked to play a 5,000 capacity crowd and was interviewed on Athens Radio with a live broadcast of his set.. “I try to keep my style fresh, never restricting myself. People do comment that I surprise them each time I play, Its the quality of the music available that keeps me going, as well as the passion to please people with my music. I like to keep people guessing and hate being pigeonholed to one sound”. His collaboration with Alec Milliner as Evergreen Terrace really took off, their first release ‘Nightlife’ reaching No.1 in the North American Tastemaker chart – Balance Promote, with regular plays by US DJ Villo on his weekly radio show.

Before Graham left the UK for Australia he partnered Stuart Wilkinson to bring the successful Empathy night based in Bristol to London’s West End. With high profile bookings like Demi, Omid 16b and Jay Tripwire as well as residents Way Out West. His DJ Agency, Groove Exponents, also had success with a roster including Mark Wilkinson, Omid 16b, Chris Cargo and Lisa German. His joint project Groove Bible, an underground dance music website attracted a large following. “Groove Bible was a great way to give something else back to the underground dance music lovers. We offered them a base to show off their talent, with mixes and track reviews that were open to anyone that knew their stuff.

Graham is currently working in the studio and releasing tracks regularly under his own name, and with fellow Groove Exponent Allan Humphreys. His passion for playing to crowds continues and he can be found on the decks around Australia.

    Congrats on a well crafted, well thought out collection. Using the vocals to keep the mix pushing on and the limited breaks between tracks makes you get lost in it. I know how time consuming it can be to get stuck in to reworking those tracks, but I am sure it was satisfying. Looking forward to Electronic Ecosystem 02........
