Gene Hoffmann used to sell his soul and pimp his ass out as a techno DJ. Now he's old, slightly grumpy and mixes at home for fun.
Between 1998 and 2005 Gene played at Australia’s biggest and best dance music festivals, club nights and rave parties; including Hardware, Earthcore, Enchanted, Two Tribes, Sunshine People, Digital Music Festival, Future and Totem events. He was a regular guest on radio and traveled to play across Australia, Asia and Europe.
He supported some of the biggest names in the techno scene; including Adam Beyer, Richie Hawtin, The Advent, Speedy J, Chris Liebing, Joel Mull, Oliver Ho, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Green Velvet, Samuel L Session, Slam, Sven Vath, Magda, Mike Humphries, Carl Cox, Ben Sims, DJ Misjah and also countless other trance, cheese and generally unimpressive alternative genre 'names'.
As a part of the infamous Panic Stricken Bovine crew, Gene helped produce a number of legendary underground events, including the renowned "Wild Things" parties, alongside partners in crime "Decimal" Dan Rachele and Matt "Van Diemen" Burtt.
In 2005 Gene decided he had enough of DJ'ing in public (and all of the baggage that went along with it). He sold all of his records, gear and moved into a DJ retirement home.
But recently Gene has been bitten by the techno bug once again. He's purchased some gear and now happily mixes at home in his studio, to his wife, kids and a few select mates. Every month or so he puts a mix online. DJ's are a vain lot after all.
