Who is Australia's BEST DJ?
Ok Folks,

We all know our homegrown DJs often sh!t all over the all too hyped up internationals that come to our shores, but who do you think holds the crown for the best DJ in Australia ... not who has had the most commercial success, or has travelled OS the most.... but the guy or gal who never fails to rock a dance florr with thier skills.

You get to nominate only ONE DJ.

My Vote: <b> Ransom </b>

Re: Who is Australia's BEST DJ?
one to watch for the future in my opinion is Mandy Rollins... she's only been at it for 2 years apparently, but her sets at The Exchange Saturday mornings are an experience....

SUGAR RAY.
By far one of the most influential, respected, and well known djs in Australia. Been there from the begining pushing the scene along and has never compromised on his style. A true master. HMC is the only other dj that is in the same league.

Re: Who is Australia's BEST DJ?
Kenobi gets my vote, as he has to be one of this country's most underrated dj's. He has command over his set that is easily on par with the greats already mentioned ie. ray.. phil smart.

Tayo was a great example of TwoUp's point on aussie dj's being able to shite on internationals.
Hanging out with hope for Adam Freeland to make an appearance at 33 & 1/3 to see a great battle between these two titans !!

Trance etc
John Ferris than BeXta

Hardcore different

Used to think Fenix but have since worked out he is an arsehole and doesn't have the right atitude for a DJ so i would have to say

Re: Who is Australia's BEST DJ?
kasey taylor or phil k are my top two.

gt - couldnt mix to save himself
peewee + bexta - anyone can play cheezy anthems with little creativity
john ferris - i've never heard a more shocking set from an interstate dj, no sorry ive never heard a worse set played in a club EVER
sean quinn - alright but lacks consistency
mark dynamix - alright but not my thing.
rob brizzi - an absolute joke

i give respect to dj's doing their own thing and being innovative and not just playing what is expected of them or what the crowd wants to hear (like brizzi/gt/peewee/skitz and all those jokers)

notable mentions for me:

Phil Smart
Sugar Ray
Ransom
Gab OLiver
Ozzie LA
Chad D
Greg Packer (Australia's best DNB DJ)

Re: Who is Australia's BEST DJ?
Ransom plays Melb. HMC is from Adelaide, and was around before Sugar Ray brought the international sounds to Australia.

dnb - greg packer (perth), one LC (melb), Trooper (melb)
house - hmc (adel)
techno - bold, t-com, cjp (adel), steve robbins (melb)
(break/nuskool/hiphop) beats - ransom (melb), kid kenobi (syd), kim dezen (adel),
tech-electro-house-all around - simon caldwell, ken cloud, ajax, royal, jimmi james sugar ray (sydney),

Oh, and maybe if Jonathon Wall could beatmix it would be a start.. two shows, two lots of trainwrecks.

If someone says Will-E-Tell one more time, I think you should be taking a good long, hard look at yourself. Call him a popstar, not a techno dj.

HMC - dexter - nik fish - trooper - all for various reasons

each to their own. one man's DJ is another man's... ah well u get the idea...

i say congrats to all aussie DJs for making it into the scene, going up against the europeans and americans (even tho the americans dont fare all that well apart from turntablism)

Definately Jannet Slack at the moment. Even though she's only passing here for a short period of time, I certainly think she's representing Sydney's scene. She's covered a lot of ground since she's only been here a short time, it comes down to her good attitude! Mo' respect to you Jannet, and your flexible stylos! We need you.

Back up off Nick Toth. That guy has skills, beats and tunes...and puts it all together for the floor.

I will never forget his set at Mark Rae a couple of months back (Manning)- easily the best of the night.

Skills to get the job done, always.
