Biography

Language: English

Robbie Lowe is one of Australia’s finest DJs and is often the “go-to-guy” for perfect support and warm-up spots for the biggest names on the planet. He’s set just the right mood for a multitude of internationals and his talent behind the decks has often been praised by the likes John Digweed, James Zabiela, Hernan Cattaneo & Danny Howells.

Robbie’s label as “Sydneys best warm-up DJ” could be seen as a bittersweet label to be tagged with, but it is one Robbie wears with modest pride. However as great as he is warming up a room, he is clearly and amazing peak time DJ in his own right as shown through his consistent dancefloor following and excellent residencies over the last decade.

Robbie has always owned a trademark warm house and tech-house sound. Vibey, underground baselines, snappy percussion and warmth in his choice of melodies. In the latter early years, you would usually see Robbie at Sydney’s leading record stores hunting down the latest End Recordings or Eukatech. Not much has changed. His approach is an ever-updated version of the style he has always had since then. Diverse, deep and his programming is deadly. Pin point accuracy and never losing the flow. And as far as mixing, he’s the tightest of them all. Steady as a rock.

DJing since the early 90’s Robbie’s journey launched properly with a top notch residency at the legendary Sounds On Sunday events at Sydney’s Greenwood. Here Robbie developed a solid fan base as his late evening courtyard sets became the talk of the town. From 2002, Sweetchilli promoters Daniel Crocetti and Crispin Kerr hooked in to Robbie’s talent and direction which resulted in focused and top quality sets with a great diversity.

Beyond the Sweetchilli partnership, Robbie’s career has been filled with as much diversity as his sets. He’s been a regular contributor to Australian EDM magazines Drum Media and 3D World, along with a tonne of radio spots both online and across traditional airwaves. In 2009 he mixed the highly acclaimed “Colour” podcast series alongside fellow Sydney DJ, Tim Culbert and more recently picked up by fashion label Zanerobe as a brand ambassador.

The international scene hasn’t missed out either, with sets at New York’s Sullivan Room and Le Souk along with London’s legendary Turnmills club in 2005 alongside UMEK & John 00 Fleming. He’s been a regular guest at Bali’s SOS Supper rooftop and recently played at Noumea’s Transit Club. Also this year was Robbie’s first trip to Miami for WMC and he played at the well-known Balance party alongside Radio Slave, Jozif and Nina Kraviz.

Robbie’s started his journey into music production with Sydney producer Matt Rowan, and since has seen releases on Hussle, Outta Limits, Rococo and Proton. More recently Robbie turned in “Real Time” for Proton Music, and yet another solo e.p “Floor Jam” for Low Pressings. So far 2013 has been a busy year for remixing, as Robbie’s recently handed in remixes for new Sydney label Deep House Aficionado and Miami’s Xima label.

His flare, personality and diversity as a DJ is something that will have Robbie Lowe kept as Sydney’s firm favorite. Regardless of whether it’s the current residencies for Spice Cellar or Ivy Pool club’s Marco Polo, or setting the standard for the Australian festival circuit, you will always see and hear the passion, skills and talent that make for an understated, but very special DJ.
