His always-evolving musical direction, is influenced by a diversity involving everything deep, mood, melodic and moving.
Layering elements of Melancholic, Balaeric, Nu-Disco, Deep House, Tech, Breaks,Tribal, Minimal, Uplifting, Techno, Post-Progressive, Dub Techno, South American-House.
In his live sets you will find intricately-layered Balearic soul and Feel-good funk, synthesized sounds, fused with deep tones and melancholic moods and hypnotic drums & percussion, tightly blended tech, tribal, techno and progressive elements to create an energetic journey through moving rhythms, soulful bass-lines and and electronic melodies.
Every set is a unique story...
Always expressing a different moment with each journey, and a possessing a special ability to read, adapt to, connect with any audience at a level that is only possible with such passion, experience and time.
He began Mixing music in 1996 but for over 25 years I have been fascinated and influenced by international sounds and cultures, These days this is translated into the music he Produces and Mixes, and the way that i mix it, while still staying true to his own roots...
Behind the decks he's a professional, intuitive, busy and energetic artist. He has always displayed an innovative attitude towards structure and content-One of those rare artists that are able to connect and create a truly unique journey with his blending style and mindful tune selection. With an obvious focus on composition and quality and not just dropping the latest 'big' tune, nodding to the old-school train of dj-thought: Where the artist should surprise, invoke and inspire, with music that isn't well-known and overexposed..
For most of 2006-2010 he took time away from performing to study Audio Production & Design @ the renowned Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University.
"Ive taken much pride in keeping it real... I was part of the electronic movement well before it became 'popular' in Australia. But more importantly Ive seen the masses come together for the music: friends, strangers, races, sexes, sexualities, religions, backgrounds, societies.....all for that electronic pulse or a moving melody....like thousands of lucky individuals, ive seen electronic music become a universal language, with the Power to break down walls, and create peace.......
As an artist, I think you can break 'DJing' down to 5 parts: The People, the Musician, the Music, the Environment and Technology.
To me, on a deeper level that translates to: The Physical, the Mental, the Emotional, the Spiritual, and the Future. It is these vital elements that i'll always consider, and attempt to fuze together whenever i perform or produce...
Enjoy the Sounds, See you soon! :) "
