Hearing Sydneyâ€™s calls for more dedicated Techno our next One22 Locals only night features a standout line up of Sydneyâ€™s finest Techno Djâ€™s who would be able to hold their own on the main floor of Berghain (minus sweaty bearsâ€¦).
Leading the techno charge is Defined By Rhythm playing an extremely rare 3 hr set in which he promises to go deep & dark and longâ€¦..before pounding us into techno oblivion. Supporting Pete on the night is one of the most underrated and in my opinion one of the best warm up djâ€™s in the country Club Junque and to close out the night Sydneyâ€™s own Twin Towers of Techno; Methodix & Mark Craven.
Defined By Rhythm - Bio
Originally from Belfast, Defined By Rhythm has been based in Sydney since 2002 and has been a significant name within the underground techno scene ever since. Initially gaining recognition as one of the founding members & resident DJ's of [THE BOX], one of Sydneyâ€™s most successful underground techno nights. With the emphasis on quality music from Australian based artists and pushing the local techno scene.
In 2010 he co launched the club night, Disconnected Presents, and Dopamine's affiliated record label, Disconnected Audio. Focusing on the darker side of side of techno, and since it's inception, he has booked and supported artists such as Marcel Dettmann, Robert Hood, Lucy, Xhin and Marcel Fengler. In addition to supporting Ben Klock, Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Phil Kieran and Dixon to name but a few.
He has been a regular fixture on the Sydney scene, bringing his unique sound to club nights, such as Deep as Fu*k, The Likes Of You, Bread & Butter, TECHnique, Swarm, Pretty Simple, Kink, The Chinese Laundry, Spice, Lost Baggage, Bunker, Sundaes. He has also taken the stage at festivals such as Subsonic, Earth Dance and We Love Sounds, in addition to his residencies at both [THE BOX] & Disconnected Presents.
Currently, he has taken a step back from DJing, playing almost exclusively at Disconnected and for a small number of like minded crews. Focusing his attention on production before permanently relocating to Europe. Thus far, it has resulted in his first E.P being released on Disconnected Audio, a remix on IF? Records and a string of other releases forth coming on various labels later this year.
He has been described as "One of the only entirely, digitally based DJs (both locally and internationally) that pushes the technology to its limits and uses it to approach DJing in a unique and exciting way. Plus, there aren't many others that can do that deep, dark, druggy sound quite like he does" - 3D World Magazine
