Check out the Bio from the Adelaide invaders below:
DJ BOLD first began Djing, back in 1992, after many late night club sessions, bugging out to the sounds of the infamous DJ HMC at the original Juice Records all night parties. Inspired to look further into the music, producing soon became a focal point. As his DJ sets continued to develop and gain a certain distinctive style so too did his work in the studio.
'Slamming mental techno with thick chunky grooves, stabby synth lines and ass kicking energy' (Cheap Thrills, Sonic Groove U.S.A).
A string of vinyl and CD releases between 1996 and 2006 saw DJ BOLD gain international respect as a producer as well as a DJ. Starting his own label - Vast Recordings was the first natural step for Bold and the label was founded with his first two vinyl releases - Mission 8 ep and Turntable Phonetix.
Other production highlights for Bold included vinyl releases for Rush's labels High Octane and Kne' Deep based in Chicago and Berlin. Other releases followed on Australia's Dirty House Records, Symbolism from UK, Nerven Records and X-zel from USA.
Performance highlights include I love Techno, Monegros Festival, Awakenings, Gazometer, Dance Valley plus clubs and partys all over the world..Chicago, New York, Brasil, Germany, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Portugal and many more.
