About

Dj, producer - remixes/originals/disco house/nudisco/rnb n hiphop / pop club remixes - lover of Isabella, that's about it....
Producing under $mite - Dollamite - DSJ - Nitewagen - Hussyboy - Stereotypes & Modern Tramp

Starting at The Yamaha School of Music (Glenelg SA) at age 5, learning piano was Leigh's introduction to the amazing world of music. His mother was a competent pianist and encouraged and furthered his musical interest.
With his brother also attending the school, their passion for jamming at home, piano and drums, filled the house most weeks, much to the disgust of the neighbours.

In grade 6 of primary school, he took an interest in his brothers passion for DJing at school discos and with his brothers help, DJ'd his own grade 7 school disco, playing tapes, 45's and 33's (Thats vinyl for all you late gen x n z'ers!)

By the end of primary school, Leigh had also performed with his older brothers cover band, playing keyboards. By the end of his first year of highschool, Leigh started his own cover band with classmates, playing lead guitar belting out pop songs and classics at school music nights, local fairs and events and then onto some private and public paid gigs.

Throughout his teens, Leigh focused on learning more about writing music and pursuing various instruments, taking up sax, drums (under world famous instructor Laurie Kennedy) guitar, bass, percussion and more.

Having relocated to a fairly remote regional area, he spent a lot of time honing his skills during downtime on a farm, whilst maintaining a keen interest in the world of DJing his brother (DJ Shogun) was heavily involved in.

Moving back to Adelaide city in 1993, Leigh took opportunities to be involved with AV production with his brothers Shane Hogans' business BIE and Paul Amos and Ben Fords company DDP, at various private shows and venues. Throughout this time he watched closely, learning many skills from the DJ's he was working alongside including Reelax, GT, Shogun, DJ Ben, Rmac, Griff and many more. Landing the position of lighting operator at the Village Tavern Golden Grove with DDP, he was also heavily involved in nightclub lighting programming and installation, PA setup and operation and much more.

Many nights were spent DJing to very small crowds at The Village, but larger private shows improved his setlist and mixing ability. Finally some breaks came, playing at The Norwood, The Vic and then the doors flew open.

Guesting at Bubblegum! at Players bar Adelaide, and then with the opening of New York Bar & Grill Marion, he was installed as resident Friday and Saturday night DJ. This led to becoming the main resident DJ for Bubblegum! on Thursdays at Marion, which at the time became Adelaide's biggest ever weekly night next to Heaven nightclubs Clubland.

Following on, Leigh's residencies included 7 years at The Stamford Grand Hotel Glenelg Friday and Saturday nights, reluctantly handing the reigns over to DJ DMH for Saturdays when he became client manager of the venue for BIE. Residencies at The Sandbar Henley Beach, The DJ contract supplying all DJ's and performing at Skycity Adelaide Casino for 5 years, Residenceis at The Seaford Hotel, The Vic, Bar Seven (Heaven) The Royal Hotel Torrensville, Swish at Stamford Plaza, A short lived Wednesdays at Red Square, The Pier Hotel Glenelg, and Working as entertainment manager and DJing at the old and the all new HWY Hotel Plympton, then Salt Bar and Grill/Santiago Glenelg, his career in DJing has seen many many amazing long term residencies and one off guest spots spanning almost 16 years in Hotels and nightclubs.

Skip to the present and DSJ is now resident at The Curious Squire, North Adelaide, spinning hiphop, funk and disco/nu-disco house choons every Friday and Saturday night.

Finally building up his studio equipment of late has also seen him get back to playing instruments, writing music and working on a lot of new projects for himself and a couple for existing Australian artists.

Leigh is blessed to have been helped throughout his career by a supportive brother and many industry peeps who still to this day have stood by him for close to 13 years in this cray-cray Adelaide incestuous world of nightlife.

He looks forward to re-focusing on production more this year, so keep your eyes out for DSJ/Nitewagen/Dollamite/Stereotypes and Modern Tramp in the iTunes charts.....
