Operon has been a pillar of the drum'n'bass community in Brisbane (Australia) for almost a decade now. Alongside partner in crime DJ Erther, Operon was responsible for reviving a dead scene for this UK breakbeat sound in his home town. Lack of exposure to the genre and a poor selection of events compelled Operon to start his own parties which led on to the seminal Brisbane clubbing event 'Rude Bwoyz Monthly'.
This dnb institution ran consecutively each and every month for over five years making Rude Bwoyz the longest running independent club event in Brisbane history! Drum'n'bass in Brisbane is now the strongest its ever been, with scores of talented young djs coming through the ranks and lots of exposure to the sound at many diverse dance events and clubs.
His efforts have culminated with top support slots for renowned dj's such as LTJ Bukem, Teebee, Aphrodite, Logistics, and Pendulum. Perform at major national festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Parklife, Future Music, Dragon Dreaming and Cairns Winter Solstice as well as having a feature mix and interview aired on major national radio station 'Triple J'.
Also a keen producer, Operon has a string of releases lined up for 2012 as well as a solid catalogue of single and EP releases on top liquid and atmospheric labels like 'Fokuz', 'Phuzion', 'Camino Blue' , 'Covert Operations' as well as his own digital label 'Golden Orb Records'.
His musical efforts really payed off recently when his 'Fokuz Recordings' release 'Electrons' was played by 'London Elektricity' on the Hospital Records podcast. The exposure gained from the podcast as well as his regular release schedule, saw Operon perform live at last years 'Splendour in the Grass' festival. His closing set on the saturday night saw the Tipi Forest stage packed to capacity as over one thousand revellers danced to this talented producers brand of deep, atmospheric drum'n'bass.
