Drum & Bass
Rythmatix is a Drum and Bass DJ based in Wellington, New Zealand and is 1/3 of the famed Frederick Crew.
After starting his musical career playing in a band at 10 years of age, a move to DJing was imminent after falling for electronic music at the end of High School in 1999.
This passion was further enhanced during the first 2 years of clubbing in Wellington while at University from the start of the new millenium, and after mucking around on some cheap decks trying to replicate what he heard in the clubs the bug was caught…
From there, steady upgrades in equipment and hours of practice and experience built up playing at house parties around Wellington for a further 3 years paid off when he met Legoman and Swanky and found a mutual love for electronic music. After many house parties at the Frederick Street pad in Wellington the lads decided to combine their varied performance backgrounds to become the force that is the Frederick Crew.
The crew has had a storied journey so far; playing at dozens of Drum and Bass events nationwide, large and small. Rythmatix's individual career is highlighted by not only making it into the NZ final of the hotly contested Rumble in the Jungle Drum and Bass competition in 2010 but placing in the top 4 in the country, and also playing to 1500 people with former RITJ winner Titts Magee at HAPPY Nu Yeah 2012.
Rythmatix is one of the few DJ's in New Zealand still actively buying and playing vinyl records. His collection now spans over 3500 releases, with genres spanning from tribal house to breaks and electro; trance to hard trance; hard dance to hard house; and liquid to dark drum n' bass, with the odd 80's, rock and hip-hop record release for good measure).
With an enormous amount of DJing experience Rythmatix will be sure to rock any floor with a bag full of the best, most upfront tunes mixed together with precision; taking you on a journey not to be missed.
