Information

Info

I began djing (age 15) at Palms nightclub Oxford st in January 1979
playing electro-disco. My earliest experience of electronic dance music was listening to Nights In White Satin rmx by Giorgio Moroder in 1976. Beatmatched journeys was a whole new thing in those days. There were 2 distinct '4 on the floor' camps, euro and
U.S.A. The earliest forms of Techno/hard house/deep house from Detroit and Chicago were already cranking away nicely, whilst German electro and U.K/ Italian disco-electro was emerging thru europe.
I took up the challenge enthusiastically. Finding a balance between the straight disco punters and the deep 4 on the 4 gay lovers, a mixture that such a location in Oxford St encouraged, soon the place was rockin. The 79 gay mardi Gras was the highlite of that time. But unfortunately..... thats
a story for another time.... but u can guess what may happen to 15 yr old street kid in such a scene.
During the 80s my focus shifted to rock and metal. Organised
concerts, djed at a roller disco and some mobile disco work.
At the same time my interest in ambience and related genres
increased. In the late 80s I moved bush and got into 'bush music'.

My 1st experience of psytrance was at ConFest 1988/89. In 1994 I moved to the Nth Coast where I put on small parties in Nimbin.
Since arriving in Sydney in 2003 I have continued to focused on psytrance, but continue an eclectic interest in all genres, including non dance.
My main ambition is to play crankin psy sets around dawn.
Guaranteed to lift the floor into the trees.
