Bio


— 2017 to Present 
— 2005 to 2016




Currently a resident of The House of Mince since 2017 thus far has seen him play Buttons Berlin and Red Light Radio in Amsterdam on a recent visit to Europe, headlined ¿Club D'érange? in Melbourne, whilst in Sydney held support sets alongside Matrixxmannd_baumeckerX-Coast, Cassegrain, Honey Dijon, Aurora Halal, DJ Hell, Volvox, K-Hand and Boris.

An integral figure in Sydney’s club and warehouse depths since 2005, and as a member of HAHA Industries, one of Sydney’s premiere, long-running, electronic music event and touring crews, Fernandes forges a groove that appeals to the committed, deeply set and versatile listener. This dedication to inimitable dance floor impressions has brought Fernandes to support HVISKE, HTRK, DJ SotofettDJ Fett Burger, Africa Hitech, Deetron, Juan Atkins, Robert Hood, Basic Soul Unit, Mark E and Gardland (Hunter Gatherer).

In recent years in duo with Dean Dixon as D&D, Fernandes has held the long-night-helm at Revolver, Mad Racket, Subsonic Music Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, Pause Festival and Burning Seed, to name but a few. This tireless devotion to diversity in the Australian dance music scene is reflected in the 11 year history of D&D and HAHA Industries, having toured and played alongside of Optimo, Tim Sweeney, Auntie Flo, NO ZU and Sal P (Liquid Liquid), A Guy Called Gerald, Alex Smoke, Kenny Larkin, Baba Stiltz and KZA.

Short text

With a tireless devotion to diversity in the Australian dance music scene, Fernandes forges a groove that appeals to the committed, deeply set and versatile listener. Currently a resident DJ for Sydney’s House of Mince (host to names as Matrixxmannd_baumecker, Volvox, Boris and Honey Dijon in his residence), his music has seen him at Subsonic Music Festival in Sydney, ¿Club D'érange? in Melbourne, Buttons in Berlin and on Red Light Radio in Amsterdam.

When first coming to light by co-promoting the decade long HAHA Industries, a touring and events crew part of Sydney’s club and warehouse depths since 2005, Fernandes paved his way by curating and adding to Sydney’s electronic music landscape by providing a platform and dance space for local artists to share their sound whilst hosting internationally renowned artists such as Optimo, Auntie Flo, DJ Sotofett & DJ Fett Burger, Hunee, Juan Atkins and Tim Sweeney.

Projects

 


Bauhaus (SCA Rozelle)


A pre-mixed DJ set to the theme of Bauhaus, I researched and compiled a set sourcing the piano music of J.S Bach and Josef Matthias Hauer used in Bauhaus theatre, the 1920’s jazz dance music listened and danced to at Bauhaus parties, speech samples from Walter Gropius, Josef Albers and Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe on the foundations and purpose of starting the Bauhaus. Also contains sound excerpts and reconstructions of Laszlo Moholy Nagy’s work ‘ABC in Sound’ and noise related samples that fit into “sound waves issuing from unexpected sources”, all wrapped up in music that resemble, feed off and was inspired by the Bauhaus such as Einstürzende Neubauten, Aphex Twin, Autechre, Magic Yellow Orchestra, Kraftwerk, Tuxedomoon, Oneohtrix Point Never, Front 242, Yello and Jean Michel Jarre.

Held on Saturday 14 December in the main gallery at Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle (now permanently closed).

Caught Stealing (Exhibition)


A concept DJ set to “an exhibition by contemporary Australian artists who mobilise theft as an artistic strategy in their work”, I  researched and collected an entire set made up of music ranging from disco and northern soul to hip hop, trip hop, jazz, rock and pop, house, techno, electronica and drum & bass. Made up entirely of samples, sampled music and their original sources (some obvious, and some not) the set shows just how much a role sampling has played in the progression of music.

The National Art School in Darlinghurst presents CAUGHT STEALING, a new exhibition turning the spotlight on a posse of Australian contemporary artists who engage in theft as a creative strategy.

Curated by Dr Jaime Tsai
Exhibition: 14 June – 10 August 2019

Recording to come
