Biography

(2002 – present)

“The fastest rising stars of the dance scene” – Tim Duggan (Rolling Stone)

When freakish talent is mixed with fate, there’s no telling what can happen. Dishing up breathtaking DJ sets over 6 dex, touring the world and producing the duuuurtiest damn house music your ears have ever heard, the Potbelleez have a sixth sense for what makes the dancefloor swoon.

Many would say it was destiny. Dave Goode and Jonny Sonic – both Irishmen looking for a new start in the Antipodes – left their homeland in 2001/2 respectively. Jonny left to escape the restraints of Dublin, whilst Dave responded to the call from dance luminary Pete Tong who proclaimed that the Australian dance scene was “going off”. Both we’re looking to make things happen for themselves, but could never have predicted the impact they’d have.

Perhaps it was etched in stone from an early age. A tradition amongst Irish households, both youngsters were immersed in music throughout their childhood. Jonny embraced everything from hip hop, house, funk and rock from an early age, revelling in the talents of Michael Jackson, NWA and Chaka Khan. Whilst Dave fell under the spell of music as a 13 year old, when his brother gave him a mixtape of hardcore legend DJ Slipmatt – it was then the lad knew he was destined to devote his life to music. A die-hard buff of all things drum ‘n’ bass and breakbeat hardcore throughout the 90s, Dave eventually grew tired of the rough stuff and fell in love with the feel-good vibe of house music.
