DJ Angus - 2000 profile

:::::: DJ ANGUS ::::::
DJ Angus first commenced DJ'ing 15 years ago and today utilises his legendary DJ scratching skills to rock the floors of Australia and New Zealand. Angus rapidly accomplished the recognition of putting Brisbane on the national map by 1990 via winning a succession of highly comptetivie DJ competitions and has supported and trained with DJ's from major international Hip Hop acts such as Public Enemy, Run DMC and DJ Scratch. He also became state champion and national champion in the DMC Finals in Sydney.

By this time Angus was considered, as one of Australia's most technically proficient DJ's, leading to his successful residency at 'The Beat" nightclub in Brisbane from 1991 to 1995 where he started playing house, techno and electro. From 1995-1998 Angus moved to become resident at "The Tube' nightclub and since then has rocked with many major international players such as Carl Cox, Sasha, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, John Digweed, Mark Farina, Carl Craig and Derrick Carter (back to back).

As well as playing nationally and internationally, Angus has been the resident radio DJ at 4ZZZ for 8 Years on their dance show "Crucial Cutz" along with Peter Mogg - Brisbane's most popular and original dance music programme.

Angus' personal highlights included providing the scratching for Digweed's Bedrock remix of "Intoxication" by React 2 Rhythm (1997 release) and playing back to back with his current and long time friend Derrick Carter whose Chicago House influence is breathless.

His skills are nothing short of perfect and his ability to motivate and capture crowds is insightful. DJ Angus is one of, if not the best DJs in the country.

In summary, having led a career in the Australian dance scene spanning over 15 years, Angus has rocked both parties both national and internationally alongside the world's best acts and is noted as
this country's best export in the fields on DJing and production. Look forward to several up and coming CD launches and major productions.
