DJ Agent 86


DJ Agent 86

A genuine multi-genre mixmaster of vintage, contemporary & emerging Hip-Hop, Funk, RnB, Dub, Disco, Afro, House, Electronic, Rock, Pop, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Post-Punk and much more besides...

3-time winner “DJ of the Year” from Inpress Magazine.

A true lover of both music AND the craft of DJing, Agent 86 has been spinning good tunes since 1989.

Starting out with a Tuesday-night residency in an underground bar in Adelaide, South Australia, along with 2 belt-drive turntables and a primitive mixer at home, he set about learning the craft of DJing. Before long came Technics SL1200s and a crossfader - and with them, hours of scratch & beat-juggling practice culminating in DMC & ITF DJ battles and, more recently, victory with the 100% Phat team in Section 8's Battle 8 DJ Competition in 2016 (Part 1: youtube.com/watch?v=bnU_VPlO2ac and Part 2: youtube.com/watch?v=3osIO_NasN...asNg&t=570s). At the same time, he held down a long-term position at an influential music store (Central Station Records), greatly expanding his musical tastes, his knowledge of classic, contemporary & emerging dance-music styles and, of course, his record collection.

Since then, he has headlined countless parties, played at countless festivals, ran a record label, worked in music distribution, produced a slew of underground hits and supported some of the biggest names in music history (see list below).

Fast forward to 2018 and that same passion remains. Always looking for the perfect beat, always looking for the perfect scratch, always looking for the perfect mix. And when he's exhausted from that, he steps into the studio to bang out fat tracks & edits for other DJs.
