Digital Primate’s performances are dynamic and genre bending. Incorporating extreme frequencies, his trademark dance floor funk straddles the experimental world of sound art and purist dancefloor beats. Dissecting time, pulling apart rhythmic structures and building them up again unexpectedly, Digital Primate’s aesthetic is one of chaos and decay underpinned by the deep relentless throb of the always present kick drum.
Having produced, collaborated with and performed alongside some of the world’s greatest electronic producers and DJs - Mad Professor, Carl Cox, and DJ Krush to name a few, DP has DJed in the hallowed dungeons of legendary Berlin club Tresor alongside DJ Rolando, Surgeon and DJ Hell, and had coffee discussing the finer details of minimal music in hushed tones with Mark Ernestus (of Maurizio and Rhythm and Sound fame).
Early techno releases through respected underground label Pro-Jex in the early 2000′s set him apart as an important producer. Album releases in 2005 and 2009 (mixed by Mad Professor) garnered worldwide respect and led to him working working with Carl Cox, producing hot new up and coming act Metals and performing around the world.
His DJ sets are legendary in Melbourne due to his long running night Centriphugal being a staple amongst the electronic music lovers of his home city during the late 90's early 2000's. He is a veteran of the early outdoor party scene in Melbourne, has played at most of the early Earthcore events and many others and has a deep love for the sound of techno in the wild!
He performed live at his most recent Digital Primate + 1 event at the Lounge in September 2012 where his guest was the legendary pioneer of UK bass culture, Photek.
His last live performance was on Carl Cox’s stage at Stereosonic festival. The show included live visuals, dramatic dancefloor mayhem and was so well received that he was asked to play for longer than the allotted time, to which he and his live collaborator Ehsan Gelsi happily obliged.
Now residing in London and working as a producer between London and New York, Digital Primate comes back to Australia in the summer months to enjoy the festival season where, he says, there is no other scene like it, Australia really does host the best outdoor parties in the world and Digital Primate will always be a part of this.
