Originating from Perth, Western Australia, DiiSTORTiiON discovered breakbeat in his early clubbing days and never looked back. Seeing acts like Soul of Man, Krafty Kuts, Aquasky and Adam Freeland, rock Perth’s most renowned underground club – Ambar, completely converted him over to electronic music and his alter ego DiiSTORTiiON was born.

Quickly gaining sets at clubs all over Perth, DiiSTORTiiON became well known for his sound being more of the harder edged style of breaks while still having a party vibe blended throughout. Playing out more and more eventually caught the eye of Perth’s Elite Dj’s “Japan 4”, otherwise known as Ambar’s residents, and he was invited to join their ranks.

Stepping outside the clubs, DiiSTORTiiON kept busy by doing plenty of local radio support slots and a five year long weekly radio show called ‘Broken Frequency’. Starting out on local Australian radio Kranky Digital, DiiSTORTiiON eventually moved over to the number one online breakbeat radio station in the world, NSB Radio, where he hosted a weekly 2 hour radio show showcasing the newest breakbeat tracks to a worldwide audience.

Spreading outside of Perth, DiiSTORTiiON toured regularly on the east coast of Australia supporting such acts as Elite Force, Chase & Status, and The Rouge Element while they were on tour. Gigs on the east coast got so regular he eventually decided to pick up everything and move over to Melbourne to continue his dj career from there.

2010 has been a busy year for DiiSTORTiiON. His hard work in the studio eventually paid off with three of his original tracks being signed to USA breakbeat label Ridiculoud Records. On the dj front, he has picked up multiple residences with the Mixed Messages crew, Skool of Thoughts ‘Against the Grain’ parties, Brown Alleys resident Saturdays ‘Under Suspicion’, Melbourne’s premium weekly breaks night ‘Bass Camp’ at Lounge and guests spots all over town. Support slots have also stepped up with DiiSTORTiiON being fortunate enough to share the stage with some of the biggest names in the business, including Stanton Warriors, Elite Force, Ctrl Z, Napt, General Midi, Freestylers plus many more.

Moving into promotions he is heavily involved in running the Mixed Messages parties and Brown Alleys Saturdays ‘Under Suspicion’ with mate Muska and all the Mixed Messages crew.

So what to expect from a live set? Loving the way djing is moving forward, DiiSTORTiiON embraces the genre-mashing styles of dj’s these days and pushes all the sounds he loves into a dj set. Be that breakbeat, dnb, dub step, hip hop or electro he will mold it into a dj set and blend it with a heap of his own edits, bootlegs, and original tracks to express himself musically through his djing.
