Sharing your stage name with a female deity, particularly when you’re a male, takes some stones. In the case of the legendary DJ-producer born Gavin King, however, it can be justified. Since emerging on the UK underground in the late ‘80s the man known simply as Aphrodite has seen and done it all. From rave and acid house to hardcore, jungle, drum and bass and beyond, King’s been on...

One of the founders of Hessle Audio in the company of fellow DJs Ramadanman and Pangaea, Ben UFO is a curiosity in the current landscape of bass music - having managed to make a name for himself purely on the strength of his DJing, without the necessity of branching over into the world of production.

 

Listening to Ben UFO’s mixes is often an experience that defines the term...

A sanctuary for the like-minded souls of electronic music and enlightened spirits, Colour of Sound is set to return – bringing its artistic haven back to Melbournian audiences.

 

Fusing together the worlds of arts and dance music, UK-based Hedflux will be headlining, a refined and decidedly danceable synthesis of chunky tech-funk and psychedelic tendencies pared back with rolling...

You know you're a true party animal when the rave you throw along with your mates racks up more than $100,000 dollars in fines for violating noise and city ordinances. Bassnectar – the alias of dubstep and electronica producer Lorin Ashton – has, sadly, experienced this. To be fair, though, if you've ever been subjected to the Bassnectar live experience, you'd probably agree it was worth it,...

"It was hip hop being the new musical thing of our time, and everybody was trying to find their own place at the time, and as it turned out, ours was DJing," one third of DJ collective the Scratch Perverts Tony Vegas muses, thinking back to the beginning of their much-celebrated career.

It’s been pretty nice going for Perth-cum-Melbourne DJ/producer J.Nitrous (James Burchett) whose debut EP Fighting Gravity last month climbed the Beatport Top 50 charts and earned him a support slot with his personal idol SPL at this weekend’s All City Bass night.

“Dedication, passion, perseverance, self belief, desire and understanding parents.” Making your name in music, regardless of genre, is never an easy thing to do. So to have been able to make your name in two is in itself impressive. Having switched style allegiance from drum and bass to dubstep in one simple step, London based producer/DJ Seven (or Edward Berry – whichever you prefer) believes...
