Highlight of Career
The highlight for me so far would have to be playing to around 500-600 doofers at the Exodus festival 2002. Although I had performed at a number of techno and trance parties before this was was my first outdoor trance party. Seeing the doof dust form a cloud above the dance floor just made me tingle and made everything seem so worthwhile.
Over the past 6 years have built up quite an array of mixes usually completing 1 CD that I am happy with each year(not including this year in which I have had my finger surgically removed from my ass, and subsequently completed 7 CDs that I am happy with).
Really am just wanting to get my sound out there so have made it available to download. Would like to know what you think, so don't be shy. Just to add the flange effect you may hear on some of the mixes has been not using "flange" technology as found on Pioneer CDJ100s and other mixing technology, but by using "phasing" mixing techniques, by mixing the same track at a slightly differentiated frequency. Most of these mixes aren't mastered as well so levels may need to be adjusted slightly.
If you would like to just hear one that best caps my sound, I would recommend "Eggs Benedict" which is my latest or "Proggy Froggy:The Soundtrack".
If you would like one or all of these mixes please don't hesitate to email me your address either on my user name on Australiens Doof-T or my email@example.com address. These are for non-profit. All I ask if its over 2 CDs to help out with the postage.

"Wodge is an accomplished turntablist and CD jockey who can play many styles of trance, always providing and ever changing pallete of energy yet still being able to provide for the audience's headspace and atmosphere. Whether it be slow and funky, earthy and tribal, or powerfully progressive, Wodge knows how to get the dancers moving. His intuitive touch as to what to play is what makes him a talent to watch out for." - Geoffrey Peters(webmaster of Doofpix and independent dance music reviewer)
I couldn't put it better myself. I love to mix music of many genres and am finding myself constantly looking for further challenges. Like to play for the moment and play spontaneously as I feel that a Dj should be confident enough to play with the surrounding energy to really give aural pleasure. Love any time slot as I love the challenge for that moment. I try to respect the dancer and the listener as ones aural energy is so delicate.
Respect to All.
