Biography

Being scolded by his parents at a young age for scratching their vinyl and breaking needles, DNGRFLD has always been obsessed with manipulating records. Kicking things off with a $20 beat up belt driven turntable and Fender practice amp, he ruined many a needle and his mums mo town record’s before properly honing his craft.

DNGRFLD copped his first set of direct drive turntables at age 18 and developed his skills behind the wheels of steel by dragging them to house parties whenever he could. Keen to step it up a notch, DNGRFLD, in collaboration with good mate Bezwun, started a night at a local pub called Break the Seal (RIP), focusing on ghettofunk, breaks and bass music in all varieties.

After being invited to play his first Challenger Ready set with Marty McFly in 2010 he has become a regular at Ambar on both sides of the decks (and the bar) and has since shared many a bill with the likes of The Freestylers, Marten Horger, The Aston Shuffle, Foamo, Slyde, Calvertron, Ajax, Kid Kenobi and many more.

DNGRFLD’s high energy, party style sets have also earnt him a slot at Perth’s internationally acclaimed event, Breakfest, for the past two years and Parklife 2012 This along with his ever growing presence in the Perth scene have his feet planted firmly in the Perth Scene.

With DNGRFLD’s most noted influences being A. Skillz, Noisia and Jack Beats its no surprise his sets jump between genres, tempo and intensity with a penchant to keep things fresh! His first original release in collaboration with good friend and partner in crime Bezwun, is out later in 2012. Also keep an eye out for edits, bootlegs and original releases from DNGRFLD in the not too distant future..
