Over 10 years experience playing Drums and Producing EDM, combined with training in Jazz Improvisation and Studio Recording Techniques gives this DJ a unique perspective behind the decks.

“Everything is a remix on the fly. With loops, filters, and triggered effects, you can completely reshape a track and take it somewhere new. Digital DJ technology has advanced to the point where you can mix not just songs – but individual beats, riffs, and progressions, to mould together a sonic collage of your own.”

Driven by a love of syncopated rhythms and hypnotic melody, Eddie’s mixing style aims to layer elements of Techno, Prog, Psy, HardTrance, and HardDance – to create a journey through sound you can lose yourself in.

I remember way back when I could barely walk, getting told off at a young age for playing drums on the pots and pans in the kitchen. After receiving a synth that year for my birthday I knew I wanted to do something with music. I took lessons in piano for a while, but grew frustrated because I wanted to play my own music – not other peoples.

Fast forward through the years, past learning trombone, then guitar, then finding a love for drums, teaching myself to compose music on a DOS sequencer called Impulse Tracker, then releasing countless tracks in the demoscene through netlabels such as Total Eclipse, Mah Music, Orange, and Inflicted, beginning to DJ my tracks around Melbourne with the Fresh crew, eventually taking up studies in Jazz Improvisation, then Studio Recording Techniques, and you pretty much arrive at the present day.
