DJ Modium (AUS) – SUN 22nd SEPT 2013
DJ and producer, MODIUM, got the taste of electronic dance music from Melbourne’s world-renowned underground club scene in the mid 90’s where techno house and trance were king. Over the years he kept close to electronic music production and electronic dance music, and in recent years stepped up his passion into Dj’ing, resulting in evident overnight success.
From those humble beginnings of hosting college parties, he has quickly created a unique sound which is now synonymous with big room clubs, and more recently moved to Asia where he is quickly rising through the Asia club scene, now recognized as one of the leading party circuit DJ’s in Asia.
His recent gig list has seen him play at some of Asia’s leading clubs, including a residency with the worlds highest roof top open air club, ALTITUDE, and regular sets at clubbing icons such as MINK, Top100 global club Avalon and super-luxe club Pangaea, Ku De Ta, X2, St. James, Elixir and a multitude of large beach side dance parties including gigs at world famous beach clubs such as The Ark (Thailand), Tanjong Beach Club (Singapore) and Cocoon (Indonesia).
On top of this is a list of regular Ibiza-style beach dance party residencies, including playing with the glamorous Ministry of Sound HEDKANDI shows where in 2011 MODIUM establish himself as a regular support DJ for Ministry of Sounds HEDKANDI, and has seen him support and headline alongside globally recognized club DJ’s.
2012 was a big year for MODIUM, seeing him play alongside and tour with a growing number of global artists such as The Scissor Sisters and Taio Cruz, and saw him take the steps to get signed with well known labels. He now boasts signed official remixes and several original tracks to marque labels including RCA Records (Sony Records), Island Def Jam, Capitol Records, Mjuzieek Records, Suka, HOUSESESSIONS, and Atlantic Records. The release of his much anticipated Limited release EP, “The Official Remixes” was well received and paved the way for the signing of a second EP slated for release late 2013.
His reputation has gone truly global, having been invited to play guest DJ radio shows for the likes of Global Music Underground and SELECT UK Radio (the worlds leading House Music radio station), and has seen his remixes played by radio stations from London to New York. 2012 finished up by him being invited by worldwide lifestyle brand, Hennessy Artistry, to be an officially recognized global Hennessy Artist. This year he also takes up the reins as a headline act along side Seb Fontaine, for the Formula 1 Podium Lounge circuit party.
With a growing online base of over 190,000 fans and followers, MODIUM is filling the headsets of dance fans globally and does not look to be slowing down any time soon. Clubbers have come to identify the individual musical sound which MODIUM often plays, where his fusion of different dance and house flavors, blending together in his many re-edited and bootlegged tracks, gives him his own signifying, creative, now inimitable sound.
Able to play a melody of dance sounds, MODIUM weaves in popular house flavors including progressive, tech, electro, vocal house and commercial, ensuring his sets are full of big club, big room energy, moving seamlessly from one genre to another. That ability to create remixes live and play across the spectrum of house – from soulful beach club and lounge bar sets, to main room anthems with banging electro and progressive house – gives his sets a unique sound for every performance.
With exceptional technical skills, a blended variety of music genres, and that added personal touch make him stand out. As one of Asia’s leading nightclub groups recently said, “[MODIUM] … is recognized by the party scene in Asia. His uncanny ability to mix any type of house music you throw at him and the versatility of his mixes makes him a recipe of dance floor destruction.”
