Short biography of DJ Delay :
DJ Delay's musical love affair started off by playing trumpet in a Big Band Swing group at age 6. Since then he's been performing and (later on) Djing music from all 5 continents – 3 of which he has already lived in. Migrating to Melbourne in '89 saw him host a 12 year long weekly no-holds barred radio show on Melbourne's PBSFM. He formed and played in several bands during the ‘90s & ‘00s in Melbourne. Delay’s spent the last 10 years living between Melbourne, Osaka & Berlin.
Australia: Hosting a radio show, coupled with performing in Melbourne's overactive live scene, you would imagine that this would satisfy his hunger for sound. Not so - in '95 he started producing electronic music and club DJing across several styles, ending up focusing on Balkan, Dub, Asian, Oriental + Worldwide club sounds, plus Jungle/Drum and Bass. Between 2006 and 2008 he co-ran the Submerge Chill Festival and “The Good, The Bad & The Balkan” club night in Melbourne.
Japan: Between ’02 and ’04 Delay lived in Osaka, regularly guesting with Reggae/Cumbia group Bush Of Ghosts, touring and DJing across the country.
Germany: Since relocating to Berlin in late ’08 DJ Delay has released 3 cutting edge East European collections and toured extensively worldwide, including European clubs and festivals, whilst remixing several prominent artists along the way.
To date (2012) DJ Delay (and his alter egos Beam Up & Sonical) have released 3 albums & over 40 tracks on a wide range of labels in 6 countries.
Worldwide club (breaks, techno, D&B, hip-hop, urban etc), dub (roots reggae & digital) plus traditional sounds tailored for the dancefloor or listening (e.g. 5 star restaurant). Specialist musical areas are Balkan, Oriental, Jamaican, Indian. Highly flexible - having played several large festivals (Glastonbury, Fusion, Big Day Out, Voov, Earthcore etc) , clubs and bars, high class restaurants and even a pachinko parlour opening in Japan.
