Gig Information

What kind of music do you play'
So hard to describe and put in a box
Why I play good shit, as opposed to shit shit
I play house, four to the floor & broken beats
I play jazz, soul, funk, r&b & disco
I play deep, jack, techno & electronica
Why I administer joy!

Introducing a fresh, new sparkly night @ Red Bar (indisputably the best damn DJ bar in the city). Launching with an all vinyl, all night get down and on the decks providing the musical joy you'll find:


We are super excited to welcome Dean home to Aotearoa and this will actually be the first time we've played together since London over a decade ago!!! It would mean a lot to us if you'd spread the word, so we pack the bar out to pay tribute to one of the OG Auckland House DJs!

Nga mihi for all your support now and forever X
