Melbourne is in a really sweet spot at the moment, we have an abundance of quality local DJ’s spinning the very best in house & techno but for whatever reason parties focusing on local talent are few and far between. That is until now as Other People present some of the best Melbourne has to offer this Anzac Day Long Weekend.
Boogs is one of the true leaders of Melbourne’s underground club scene. Supremely talented, original and never reliant on trends, fads or visiting international DJs, his 7am residency at Revolver Sundays is one of the most celebrated, unique and infamous gigs in town. His three-hour sets attract a vibrant, loyal and seriously up-for-it crowd each and every week. Combining his incredible technical skills with an ear for the best new music, Boogs has consistently maintained a standard in excellence that sets him apart as a truly gifted DJ, inspiring both young and old generations alike.
Melbourne DJ Sunshine say's her sets are all about "fun". Earning her stripes in a myriad of different spaces around town, she’s created a sound that is truly her own. What gives her the edge is sheer versatility – you’re just as likely to hear bleeding-edge techno alongside tech house, house and disco all in the space of one beer. Hapno is the sound and it sure ain’t coming from anyone else.
As a teenager growing up in Perth, Sunshine first tapped into the illegal rave scene to nurture a growing interest in dance music. Several years on the dancefloor led to her first vinyl purchase, exploring the worlds of hip hop, jazz, funk, soul, disco, house and techno. By the time she moved to Melbourne in 1998, she’d amassed her first crate and a dream to DJ. Within a year she’d garnered her first gig, at a small party in Port Melbourne. Naturally, she started playing bars around town, eventually working her way up to sets in the side rooms of the bigger parties such as 33 & 1/3.
By 2003, Sunshine had turned enough heads to be offered a weekly 5hr set at Revolver on Saturday mornings, a reasonably prestigious set in the grand scheme of things. She grabbed the chance with both hands and made it her own. 2013 saw the monumental celebration of her 10 year Anniversary.
Having been pivotal in Melbourne's underground scene since it's inception, Dave Pham has enjoyed accolades from local punters and beyond. For years he has been a Dj’s DJ, your go to guy for everything Techno and House supporting many acts over the years at some of Melbourne’s best clubs and festivals including Honky Tonks, Ffour, Brown Alley and Rainbow Serpent Festival. Nowadays Dave uses his experience and knowledge of the scene and works with When the Smoke Clears, collaborating with other crews to showcase all things Techno.
