I started my electronic music journey in 1998 and for my birthday that year I got my first pair of turntables and a mixer. Every couple of weeks I would head into the city and buy the latest dance records to feed my vinyl addiction.
I was listening to Artist’s such as Paul Van Dyk, Underworld, Prodigy, Scot project, R.O.O.S, Lost Tribe, Dj Quicksilver, Three Drives and Delirium. By 1999 I was really getting into hard house and listening to artists such as BK, Nick Sentience, Praga Khan and Andy Farley.
Over the years of when I started my Journey I was part of many event companies within the Australian dance music culture where I was DJing and promoting such as Radio Dex, Powerhouse, Hard Kandy, 3D, Every Picture Tells A Story, Mindamaze, Future Entertainment, Overdrive, Rushn, Sydney Trance, Transience, Genesis, Masif, Bam Radio and Beatz.I didn’t start producing music until 2016 – 17 where I joined forces with another local Producer named Ryan O’Gorman and we called ourselves Genetixx. We were pretty much just doing Trance at this time.We released about 12 Tracks, played on a dance music radio station in Melbourne called Kiss Fm and also represented Australia in a world trance artist event showcasing the best trance artists from each country on Trance Energy Radio.
In 2019 I started up my own label – Nexus Fusion Records. From coming from a House & Trance background I developed a unique style which I put into my tracks combining these two genres and creating music that I love and I know that my fans will love as well.
My intentions behind my tracks ‘Summer Love’ and ‘Vibe’ was I was so excited for the festival feeling you get in the summer months and the vibes you feel so I decided to make a couple of tracks that would get you in the mood to embrace the feeling you would feel.
I like to keep my music sounding fresh and uplifting with lots of energy.
If I was to play in front of a 3000 person crowd the first 3 tracks I would drop would be depending on lets say its a house / Trance set and its my music would be Vivid Sunset, Relax Your Thoughts & Optical Exposure.
A “never have I ever”, what is one thing you have never done that people would be surprised you have never done?
One thing that I have never really done which a lot of people would find this to be surprising is that I have never travelled outside of Australia.
I would however really like to accomplish next to play sets in other countries like America, Uk & Europe And I hope someone will book me over in those parts of the world, the parties look amazing.
I have plenty more releases coming up over this year, I’m currently working on 2 new tracks which will be released over the next 2-3 months.
