Biography

There are few underground Australian DJ/producers with as good an ear for ‘big tunes’ as Rich Curtis. An honours graduate from the university of epic progressive house as taught by Professors Sasha, Digweed and Cattaneo, Rich has become one of the Queensland capital’s most valuable closing slamfest DJs with a relentless approach to his DJ sets; sets built on a foundation of chugging bottom end and rolling percussion but with enough sprinklings of melody to keep music fans shoulder to shoulder with dancefloor junkies in front of him whenever he plays.

It’s Rich’s discipline as a musician which has set him apart from the growing band of aspiring jocks in Australia through the mid to late noughties. Where many DJs - established, aspiring or otherwise - struggle to piece together one promo mix a year, you can set your watch to Rich turning in two quality mixes every month - always fresh, always epic, and always staying faithful to his sound, which sits at the big-room end of house and techno.

Schooled in the art of keyboard, trumpet, guitar and drums, it’s hardly surprising that Rich has an affinity with the more musical end of house music. He continues to draw inspiration from the progressive scene’s 1990s godfathers, with his endlessly rolling style and music collection very much reminiscent of John Digweed in full flight. So it’s appropriate that he’s played a pivotal role in bringing some of the other progressive masters to Brisbane, hosting Anthony Pappa on five separate occasions in the last six years (playing back to back with the man in 2009!) and also providing a leading hand in getting Hernan Cattaneo to Brisbane for the first time ever in 2009
