About

Mixing sounds of the underground from deep house, minimal techno, chilled beats and the odd random collectiv ska two-tone. All tunes spun on the favoured 2010s plugged into serato scratch live.

Jimbalin was heavily influenced by the UK and Canadian techno scenes in the late 1990's, which included frequent trips to The Orbit in Morley and the Megadog Templehead acid techno series in Leeds and London. The 90's was an epic blend of Detroit and German techno from Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Swen Vath, Adam Beyer with the odd number from Laurent Garnier and Aphex Twin.

From mid-2000, Jimbalin's scene rapidly progressed towards incorporating techno sounds and loops into the rise of breaks. Plump DJ's, Stanton Warriors and Adam Freeland's Marine Parade label paved the way for a new style of beat tech loops on the decks. The old classic from Drumcode or Surgeon had yet to budge :)

Influences today have matured into the clean sounds emulated from noise machines and pads. The Sydney techno and progressive house scene is driven by Deadmau5, Trentemoller and Gui Boratto, with the sudden impact of Apparat, Max Cooper, Tensnake, Pig & Dan and Hernan Cattaneo also barging there way into the favourites.

(PS. I detest dub step).

    Hey Max, saw your set at Subsonic Festival in Oz, it was a brilliant hour of sounds. You really are the scientist cooking up the recipes and then stirring into the mix. There was one tune that really stood out for me that night - do you have a set list or the recorded mix? Jim
