Obliveus


Obliveus plays an infectious blend of funk, hip hop, indie, reggae, northern soul, dancehall, disco, edits, rock, pop and just about anything else he can use to work the room. A party beat specialist, the one thing you can say about his style is that he’s hard to define; yet always plays to the crowd and will pull out whatever it takes to get the room jumping…assuming that’s what’s required.

He has held down residencies at every major club night worth mentioning, holds down both the St Kilda and Sydney Road Festivals every year and rocked sets at Harvest, Earthcore, Rainbow Serpent and Adventjah. He’s been played on Triple J national radio, writes edits with Mark Baker as TABU, formed Black Caesar Events to promote funk and soul gigs in Melbourne, joined Funkdafied (Sydney’s premiere block party outfit) soon after and now sits on quite a few choice gigs on the regular. He currently maintains sets and residencies all over Melbourne Town and he plays regularly in Sydney. He also writes a monthly beat flavoured column for ‘The Music’ magazine, The Get Down.

As a sign of his eclectic nature, his music career has seen him support and play with many of the top names in soul, funk, breakbeat, hip hop, reggae, dancehall, drum’n’bass and live music. Acts such as Portishead, Nile Rodgers & Chic, D’Angelo, Fatback Band, Common, Beck, No Doubt, Bliss N Eso, Aloe Blacc, Mos Def, Maxwell, George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic, Santigold, Andy C, Omar, The Kashmere Stage Band, Miami Horror, The Dandy Warhols, Pato Banton, Plump DJ’s, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mike Patton, Pendulum, Angie Stone, Chase & Status, Saskwatch, Incubus, Donovan Frankenreiter, Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins, Herbalizer DJ’s, Kylie Auldist, Trojan Sound System, Marky, Mr Savona, The Putbacks, Shortee Blitz, The Nextmen, Cactus Channel, Katalyst, Fort Knox Five, The Maestro (Blue Note), The Flaming Lips, Andy Smith, The Family Stone (of Sly fame), All Good Funk Alliance, Katch (Resin Dogs), Stanton Warriors, DJ Food, TV On The Radio, Spikey Tee, Ben Folds Five, Jacques Lu Cont, The Silversun Pickups, Cake, Ladytron, Tiesto, Mark Pritchard, Lanu and more. He also supported Chris Rock for 3 dates on his ‘No Apologies’ comedy tour when he was last in the country.

In 2016, his love of the 45rpm record continues to see him play many a festival and he has since started the official Melbourne 45 Sessions parties.
