Turntables change life

THERE will be big basslines, urban grooves, melodic overtones, and a good mix of electro beats all rolled into one seamless show when DJ Matt Nukewood performs at The Australian Hotel and Brewery on Thursday, January 10.

Nukewood will perform all his popular house hits as well as some new songs when he takes to the stage in the Cool Room.

‘‘Brewery is always one of my favourite gigs,’’ Nukewood said.

‘‘Definitely the best Thursday in Sydney.

‘‘You can expect all the biggest club tunes, heaps of edits and the most recent tunes they may have not heard but is sure to get the crowd moving.’’

Nukewood’s DJing career launch into action when he decided to make his own style of house music.

‘‘I was just an everyday clubber about seven to eight years ago, loved it so much decided to buy a set of turntables,’’ he said.

‘‘I ended up getting a heap of gigs from it which in result has turned out to be my full time job.’’

Nukewood owes his success in the electro scene to the basic principal of hard work.

‘‘I’ve had to do a lot of hard work,’’ Nukewood said.

‘‘A lot of networking, and preparing my sets, I also have my own agency so I’m not just a DJ.

‘‘The main thing is work hard and it pays off.’’

Working hard has definitely paid off for Nukewood.

He has earned a number four national DJ ranking and a number two in NSW which was announced at last year’s annual In The Mix Awards.

Nukewood is also a regular on the Sydney festival circuit performing at Stereosonic, Good Vibrations, Parklife, Future Music Festival, Summafieldayze, Field Day Global Gathering, Creamfields and many others. 

He has supported chart-topping artists such as Deep Dish, Swedish House Mafia, deadmau5, Skrillex, Tiesto, Avicii, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand, Carl Cox, The Chemical Brothers, Erick Morillo, David Guetta and Kaskade.
