Growing up in New Zealand, ANTIX was surrounded by music, be it at large family gatherings where music and singing accompanied the traditional Maori feasts or from his father, who is a self taught guitarist that has performed with some of New Zealand and Australiaâs most notable talents. This background led ANTIX to study music at school where he learnt how to read music to go along with his inherited ability to play music by ear. His influences range from Pop, Jazz, Hard Rock, Blues, Soul, RnB & Hip-Hop; if it sounded good and uplifting then you could be sure ANTIX was listening to it.
Unfortunately, ANTIX did not continue on with his music studies, but it was inevitable that at some stage he would find a new direction for his passion in music. He began DJing in the early 90s while working at a popular music store in Sydney Australia. His musical tastes ranged from the then popular Hardcore Techno and Jungle to Trance and Progressive sounds.
In November 2000, after spinning regularly at a number of Sydney clubs playing Hi-Energy dance and hardcore techno before moving onto a more progressive trance based sound, his radio show SESSION began. This was the musical format initially of his Pulseradio show SESSION. And we have TECHiONE/DJ Dave McCann to thank for that.
TECHiONE/DJ Dave McCann not only introduced ANTIX to Pulseradio but also to Techno, where he enjoyed the darker driving side of euro-tech loopism and funky tribalistic grooves from producers such as Deetron, Hertz, Ben Sims, Danilo Vigorito, Tom Hades and Marco Bailey.
ANTIX has moved on in sound once again and now enjoys spinning breaks on his weekly Pulseradio show SESSION. While being influenced by the likes of local boys The Impossibles and Kid Kenobi, on high rotation he has a number of releases off the Finger Lickinâ Label as well as tracks from producers Evil Nine, Elite Force, The Breakfastaz, Dylan Rhymes, Stanton Warriors, Meat Katie and more.
So tune in to SESSION with ANTIX Fridays from 6pm for a complete mix up of freshânâfunky booty shakinâ breaks.
