    What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
    I really fell in love with the house/deep house sound when I first started hearing it out in clubs around 2012 and just began clubbing regularly since that time. I remember purchasing a dj controller online and playing around with it in my bedroom several years ago now. Ever sicne that time my interest in DJing began. I eventually downloaded Ableton and did a little bit of producing at home but nothing too serious. Things really began to take form when I entered the YOURSHOT international DJ competition in 2017 and placed as runner up on my stage. Shortly after the competition I had my first club set at one of the biggest clubs in Brisbane “The Met” and supported Bag Raiders amongst other international artists. 


    Who has influenced you musically? 
    After attending the infamous nightclub Revolver in Melbourne it really influenced and changed the direction of my sound. I have had a massive influence from many Melbourne DJ’s including Brian Fantana, Boogs, Spacey Space and Jordan Brando to name a few. 

    What are you currently working on?
    Was very happy to put out my debut single “I Gotta Know” last month which had a fantastic response. I am currently working on several projects which will be seeing the light of day very soon. 


    What can we expect in the future from Lifestream?
    Strive to provide listeners with the best experience possible by creating memorable sets, tunes and moments. 

     

    Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
    I have had the pleasure with working with the guys at Frisson Records/Eden. They put on absolutely fantastic events and I have been able to play at their last 2 label parties in Brisbane which have both blown away my expectations.

    What’s your day job?
    I work on the clinical team at headspace (National Youth Mental Health Foundation), primarily doing assessments, screening and case management. I’m also doing some Postgraduate studies which keeps me busy. 


    What do you listen to in your downtime? 
    I listen to such a variety of music in my spare time; a lot of metal, house, triple J amongst others. 


    What do you think of the Brisbane scene?
    I think the Brisbane House and Techno music scene has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Venues like Capulet and events like Syndrome, Eden, Dragonfruit have all blown up in popularity over the past several months which has really shown the appetite for more underground house and techno sounds in the Brisbane music scene and how popular it is becoming. Very excited for the future of the Brisbane house and techno music scene.

      One of Australia’s most loved techno events: PURE, returns for its fourth year in 2019, to announce its biggest line-up to date! PURE, presented and curated by Carl Cox, Eric Powell of Bush Records and Richie McNeill of Hardware, will see Carl Cox (Intec, Australia), Marco Carola (Music On, Italy), Joseph Capriati (Redimension, Italy), Enrico Sangiuliano (Drumcode, Italy) and Eric Powell (Bush Records, Australia) take PURE to new heights in 2019.
       
      After its first year in Ibiza winning ‘Best Event’ of the summer in September 2017, this year the Australian leg expands to include Adelaide fans for the first time alongside regulars: Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane.  PURE 2019 will tour Australia over the Easter weekends in April 2019 and Adelaide will also be getting in on the action of Australia’s largest techno event! Adelaide ravers get ready!
      Celebrating techno and house music, PURE has quickly established itself as a ‘must attend’ event for dance music fans, thanks to its reputation as an event where the audience can make a special connection with the DJs.
       
      In April of 2016, Carl Cox launched the first instalment of his PURE event in Australia.  Taking place in Melbourne and Sydney, the event showcased players from the global Techno and House movements.
      Marco Carola from Italy has enjoyed being a global techno ambassador, instrumental in the development of the electronic scene in the early 90’s.  Over twenty years later and Marco is still one of the most respected artists amongst the techno faithful, widely regarded as one of the key factors in driving the genre towards worldwide recognition within electronic music.  Joseph Capriati from Italy needs no introduction.  Now over a decade into his career as a globally touring DJ, there’s hardly an accolade he hasn’t achieved.  He is deservedly one of techno’s most in-demand headliners and continues to better himself as an artist.  Capriati’s brand of slick and emotive techno, delivered with precision, flair and infectious energy, has become a staple highlight of the global club and festival circuit.  Enrico Sangiuliano is a name you will have noted if you have been anywhere in the electronic music scene over the last few years.  International recognition came in 2015 with his remix of DJ Boris’s ‘Can You Hear Me’ on Alleanza, claiming the title as Beatport’s ‘highest selling techno track’ and being known for his driving techno, reminiscent of his peers Joseph Capriati and Marco Carola.
       
      Join the crew for a night of Pure techno, delivered with incredible sound in an old fashioned no nonsense, no fluff rave atmosphere.
      Pure 2019 Lineup Line-up:
      Carl Cox (Intec, Australia)
      Marco Carola (Music On, Italy)
      Joseph Capriati (Redimension, Italy)
      Enrico Sangiuliano (Drumcode, Italy)
      Eric Powell (Bush Records, Australia)
      And more to be announced.

      DJ SPEN:
      US house icon DJ Spen first laid his hand on the decks at the age of thirteen while growing up in his native city of Baltimore - he hasn’t looked back since.
      Also known as Sean Spencer, the talented DJ and producer began his illustrious career in the mid-’80s as a hip-hop radio DJ making beats under the moniker Numarx, responsible for writing and recording 'Girl You Know It’s True,' later covered and made into a smash hit by Milli Vanilli. The years that followed saw DJ Spen move away from hip-hop and towards the classic Chicago house sound that would define his productions for years to come, after joining forces with famed production collective The Basement Boys. Working under the name Jasper Street Co., DJ Spen released his first 12″ through Basement Boys Records in 1995, the energetic gospel house cut ‘A Feeling.’ This was the first in a lauded series of releases for the label that brought Spen commercial and dancefloor success over the next decade, earning him international recognition as a house music pioneer.  In 2004, DJ Spen split from Basement Boys, releasing through Black Vinyl Records and his own label Code Red before founding his second imprint Quantize Recordings, which has since become a regular outlet for his music. Alongside his own productions, DJ Spen has built a reputation as a talented and prolific remix artist, putting his own unique stamp on pop anthems from Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Everything but the Girl, Toni Braxton and more. If that isn’t enough, he’s still spinning eclectic and soulful jams in clubs across the globe, further establishing his status as an eminent figure in house music, both past and present.
       

      DR PACKER:
      Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer Greg Packer, set up for Remixes & Edits of mainly retro music such as 70’s, 80’s, 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae. Greg although known more for ‘Liquid Drum & Bass’ regularly plays sets of ‘Old School Funk, Disco & Hip Hop. Greg purchased his first record in 1982 at the age of 10. That record was ‘Grandmaster Flash – The Message’! Greg grew up in Northampton in the UK, frequently listening to his mother’s disco records (to which he says he had no choice!). In the 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to hear music such as ‘Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now’ or ‘And The Beat Goes On’ played in the house, so the disco thing really was his first introduction to music, records became his life and he has collected 25,000+ over the years.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world with the likes of Greg Wilson, Hot Toddy, Fingerman, Joey Negro and Norman Jay regularly featuring his edits in their performances. All of this support helped Dr Packer to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 Nu Disco Artists midway through 2015. At the end of the year Dr Packer came in at #4 in the Top 100 Disco Artists
