Australian DJ and media producer Brendan Palmer performs as cinco cinco cinco .
With cultural diversity his primary passion, his sets traverse language, culture and genre, presenting a thriving intersection of underground sounds that capture his imagination. From Roots to Futurism, East to West, Minimal to Maximal… A unified sound!
Alongside igniting dance floors, 555’s DJ work has drawn him into collaborations with trans-lingual vocalists, global instrumentalists and VJs. His interest in language driven party sounds has established unique multi-diciplinary interactions, joining Melbourne’s ‘Underbelly’ dance troop and spoken word communities as resident selector.
In 1992 Brendan foundered the electronic arts collective 'Clan Analogue’ that still exists. In 1996 he went on to present nightly national radio for seven years on SBS Radio, the most multi-lingual media entity on the planet.
In 2004 he launching the Uber Lingua project that focuses entirely on celebrating cultural diversity, through banging parties, clubs, festival spaces and media projects around the country. He produced massive audio-visual spaces at Sydney Festival’s ‘Festival First Night’ [2008, 2009, 2010], performed with the Uber Lingua Sound System’ at many major festivals including the Darwin Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival opening nights, and promoted Japanese expero-pop singer Tujiko Noriko at the Sydney Opera House.
Touring multiple internationals and hosting traveling DJs has been central to Brendan's interaction with the international global beats scene. Like minded artists including Barcelona’s Filastine, Maga Bo from Rio, Poirier from Montreal, Chigago based Panamanian MC Zulu, Kenyan hip hop MC’s Sinpare, England’s Russ Jones, Indonesia’s Nova, Tijuana's Nortec Collective and DJ Chucuchu have all been given Uber Lingua’s red carpet treatment in Australia, establishing lasting global partnerships.
Brendan performed all Australian sets in Europe in 2002, and in 2007 circumnavigated the planet, performing festivals in Mexico, clubs in Europe and bars in Japan. In 2010 he gathered sounds and performed in Berlin, Cologne, Poland, Vienna, Budapest, London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Lisbon and Istanbul. During this time he made strong connections with many like minded souls, becoming a member of Barcelona based ‘Folcore Audiovisual Collectivo’, a crew he worked closely with on many shows.
He has since expanded his scope to creating moving images that are inspired by the sounds he enjoys.
