Biography of Gavin Boyd
Australian based DJ/Producer, Gavin Boyd is a torchbearer of his craft.
For over a decade, Gavin Boyd has consistently been one of Australia's most well- respected DJs, being “the guy” to call when you need to fill a club or set the mood for a headlining international.
Thanks largely to his musical diversity, which allows him to adapt to any atmosphere (something very rare in today's "genre driven" music scene), Gavin's constantly evolving style has one ever present ingredient infused in his music to set it apart in today's digital world... Soul.
Having begun his musical journey at a time when vinyl was still "the" medium for DJ’s, he started his career as a radio DJ & announcer on the legendary 4ZZZ Blackbeat (R&B/Hip-Hop).
While constantly digging in the crates to find that one track to set it off, Gavin relentlessly developed the skills of a battle DJ, becoming the 2003 Queensland ITF Champion.
That passion for music quickly moved far beyond his Hip-Hop roots into a much broader musical spectrum, woven together into unique patterns thanks to Gavin's turntablist foundation.
He is known for his smooth yet technical style and passion for soulful music. Shedding light on quality, soulful, underground music is what he lives for.
This is exemplified by his side project 'Soul Has No Tempo', which brings his passion for music to a wider audience through local parties, events, online broadcasts and more recently - production.
Gavin has been engaged for a multitude of support spots alongside some of the biggest and most respected names in the music industry (including Pete Rock, Mos Def, Dwele, Questlove, Dâm Funk, Busta Rhymes, Julio Bashmore) and had the opportunity to play at some of the most popular music festivals in Australia.
Having developed a strong local following, Gavin Boyd has not only garnered accolades across Australia, but much further abroad too – having performed in clubs and festivals in locales diverse as Amsterdam, Philippines, Maldives and Sri Lanka.
In more recent years, after receiving critical acclaim for his live collaborations with various vocalists and musicians, Gavin began work on his own music production, making the transition from "playing other peoples music ... to making the music people play".
Steadily developing his craft, Gavin has worked hard to create his own unique sound and is now ready to share it with the world.
With his production debut to be featured on Jazzanova's Sonar Kollektiv imprint later this year, after co-writing and remixing Melbourne based artist Travis Lee's single 'Take You Away', Gavin Boyd is poised to bring his unique soul infused sound to a global audience.
