      Dr Packer, aka Greg Packer, is well known amongst the music scene for his remixes & edits of classic tunes from 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s Soul, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop & Reggae.  Dr Packer has quickly become a mainstay in the sets of some of the biggest names in the disco world, with this support helping him to be voted #1 in the Traxsource Top 20 NuDisco Artists for two consecutive years running.
      Dr Packer is one of the four main headliners playing at Sunset Safari at Albert Park Greenfields on New Year’s Day, alongside DJ Spen and local Melbourne heavyweight, Boogs.  Leading up to his New Years Day set, he takes a moment to have a chat with Ozclubbers' founder @Adam Madd.
       

      AM: Hi Greg, thanks for taking the time to chat with us here at Ozclubbers! First up, something that I’ve personally been curious about.  How did the “Dr” part of your name come about?
      DP: My real name is Greg Packer which makes my initials 'GP', also an old friend years ago used to call me 'the disco doctor' cos he also knew about my obsession with collecting disco & soul records.
       
      AM: You’ve got a well-known name amongst the Jungle and D&B scene in WA as Greg Packer, but what inspired you to start playing soul, disco, funk, and reggae as Dr Packer?
      DP: A lot of people didn't realise but I was already doing it on the side, just not producing it under the name 'Dr Packer'. I had a residency at a night here called 'The Funk Club' and did events under the name 'Boogaloo', this was me playing strictly all disco vinyl sets. I kept it on the down low as the diehard DnB fans would have started to think I was jumping ship, it was only when I decided to start producing it that I felt I needed to change my name, I wanted to keep my surname and just change the first part and start fresh under a new name.
       
      AM: How dramatically the Perth scene changed since you first started playing in 1990?  Would you say it’s for good or bad, and why?
      DP: I think there are pros and cons, for e.g. back in 1990 people would be clubbing without mobile phones or any type of social media distractions therefore all attention was on the DJ, but then the technology these days is amazing playing off USB sticks and the music production sound quality is a lot better than back in 1990. Plus, in those days you'd rarely get the big festivals like we get now. There are probably loads of good and bad points if you really think about it, but I think for me I prefer now.
       
      AM: Your disco remixes have been referred to as beefier, fatter version of the original. While it’s probably hard to select just a couple from the vast remix repertoire you have, can you list a couple of remixes you’ve done that stand out to you as favourites, and tell us briefly what inspired you to remix them?
      DP: The ones that really stand out for me is my version of Donna Summer 'I feel love', which I did back in 2015. It was the one mix that was nailed straight away, and I still play it most sets now. It was a request from my mother, so I had to do it, but I am so glad I did as it ended up being one of my fave edits really beefed up and sounds amazing on a good system. Also, my version of 'Grandmaster Melle Mel - white lines' seems to be very popular and I get lots of love and requests for it. Just one day I thought about doing something other than straight up disco, and a lot of those early hip hop tunes were heavily disco influenced to begin with. I wasn't sure if it would get accepted on the dancefloor to begin with but now it’s often one of the biggest moments in my sets.
       
      AM: You’ve been compared to the likes of Hot Toddy, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Joey Negro, Greg Wilson, Norman Jay, and Fingerman.  What does it feel like to be in the same spectrum as these musical masterminds?
      DP: Amazing !!!!!  I mean I looked up to these guys when I first started out doing this and now, I'm often on the bill with them. I still feel like a teenage groupie around them, but I try to hold it together and remind myself I’m a 46 year old man !!!! haha 
       
      AM: You’ve just recently reached the no.1 spot on Traxsource’s top100 NuDisco artists, for the second year running!  (Congratulations!)  How did you feel when you heard of that achievement?
      DP: Total shock !!! Last year they requested a high res pic of me the day before so it kind of gave the game away that I won it, and this year I didn't get that email, so I convinced myself I didn't get it, so when I saw that I had again I got a massive buzz.
       
      AM: Where did your musical journey actually start?  What inspired you to start DJing?
      DP: I saw the band 'Technotronic' play at a concert in 1989 and they had a half time break, and they said there DJ will play for half n hr, so I watched him from a balcony above as he was cutting, scratching and mixing old hip hop, funk & house tunes. He was amazing, and that moment I had that thought in my head 'I need to do this', so by October '89 I'd saved enough money to get my first pair of decks, which means by Oct 2019 it will be 30 years for me as a DJ. Sounds like an excuse for a party !!!! 
       
      AM: What was your first record?
      DP: Grandmaster Flash - The Message. It was in the charts at the time (1982) and my older brother bought it for me as a birthday present, the vinyl collection (or should I say addiction) grew from that moment.
       
      AM: Can you list your top 5 records at the moment and maybe something about each that attracts you to them?
      DP:
      Qwestlife - Hit It Off (Glitter Box)
      Sometimes I think cover versions can ruin a track, but in this case I like it as much if not a tad more than the original, fantastic update !!!
      Spencer Morales ft Tasha LaRae - I Need Your Lovin (Opolopo Remix) (Quantize Recordings) 
      Pretty Much for the same reasons as the above tune, a cover version done extremely well and Opolopo nailed the new baseline  
      Patrice Rushen - Never Gonna Give You Up 'Joey Negro Mix' (Z Records)
      I’ve been playing this for a little while now and I can’t leave it alone, love the new chords Joey added and a great production update to an already classic tune 
      Lenny Fontana & Shirley Lites - Fire 'Dr Packer Remix' (Midnight Riot) 
      I felt so privileged to be asked to remix a tune by 2 people that I admire very much 'Lenny Fontana' and 'Shirley Lites' who delivered a real authentic sounding disco number that sounded like it could have been released in 1979, I put my usual Dr Packer stamp on it
      Slam Dunk'd , Chromeo  - No Price 'Art Of Tones Remix' (Glitterbox) 
      I only just found out this was an 'Arthur Baker' production which surprised me, but a great nice chuck of modern disco smoothed out a tad by 'Art Of Tones' love it !!!! 
        AM: What is in the production pipeline for Dr Packer?  What can we expect to hear from you in 2019 and onwards?
      DP: As we speak I am working on forthcoming material for 'Glitterbox, Big Love Records, Masterworks' and hoping to get a rework album released for next year done officially, which is a lot of hard work but I’m up for the challenge. The tracks are ready to go, its more about the licensing side of things as I no longer wish to be looking over my shoulder.
       
      AM: Can you recommend a couple of artists that our readers should be keeping an eye on?
      DP: Nobody brand new has jumped out at me this year, but one artist 'Michael Gray' who is one half of 'Full Intention' has been sending me some stuff this year that has really impressed me, and I have supported everything he has sent thru. I look forward to the next inbox each time. Also the great Joey Negro has been killing me this year to the point where I have to force myself to not play too many of his tunes in my set. I could easily play a whole set of his stuff and I don't think I am alone in saying that.
       
       
      AM: And finally, tell us something that we don’t know about Dr Packer?
      DP: I used to be a brickies labourer. I was often referred to as 'The Dog' or 'The Beast' by my fellow tradesmen which was general building site banter. The supervisors and bosses would walk on site and say hello to all the tradesmen, and just walk past me (the labourer) as you wasn't even worthy of a 'Hello'. But now I’m often picked up from the airport in a limousine with a personal driver holding a sign saying 'Dr Packer', and then driven to a fancy hotel and sign autographs and take photos after my set. Complete madness !!!! 
       
      Thanks again for taking the time to speak with us, Greg!

    • Nordic-By-Nature
      By Nordic-By-Nature
      If you’re into Trance music - you’ll know him. He’s signed to Armin van Buuren’s record label and a regular on the world’s biggest radio show ‘A State of Trance’.
      He’s played at Global Gathering, Creamfields, A State of Trance, Trancefusion, Transmission, Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival to name a few.
      His name is Andrew Rayel and I had the chance to chat to him recently about his thoughts on playing the smaller cities, the revival of Trance, and why a Trance crowd tops the rest.
       
      You’ve been making music since the age of 13. How’d you get into electronic music and manage to be releasing music at such a young age?
      It’s a very long story. I started by learning in musical school since I was 9 years old. I studied piano for 7 years and while I was studying piano I was never a big fan of learning other people’s music. That’s what they were making us do. We were learning Mozart and Choplin. I always wanted to create my own music. At that time I was learning to create different melodies on the piano but didn’t know how to record them. Or I didn’t know where I was going to go with them.
       
      Because with a melody you can go to any genre. You can create rock music, pop music, classic music or electronic music. They used to play some electronic music on the radio. That’s when I heard the music of Tiesto and Armin and ATB and I fell in love with that music and I decided this where I want my melodies to go. And it was another 5 or 6 years of working very intensely on production up until I got my first signing on a label. Then after that I signed one of my tracks to Armada Music and Armin really loved the track. They began playing all my tracks in his sets and the rest is history.
      It’s an amazing story. Were your parents behind you and pushing you at such a young age?
       
      Yeah totally. My Dad was not really into music and he didn’t understand it in the beginning. But my Mom always supported me and saw that I wanted to be a musician and a producer and later a DJ. She supported me and gave me everything.
      Even in the beginning, she borrowed some money so I could buy my first equipment for my studio. I think as soon as they see that it goes to something and you start earning a little money and getting recognition. Then they start to seeing it’s more serious and not a hobby or a waste of your efforts.
       
      Right now both my parents are into electronic music. Sometimes even more than me!
      What are your parents listening too?
       
      My mum listens to my radio show and the sets I’m playing but also to Tomorrowland sets. She always researches and listen to the music. She’s really into it.
      Your new track “Last Summer” has a much more commercial sound than you’ve had previously.  There always seems to be a bit of a public outcry when an artist releases something that’s more commercial than usual. What can you tell your fans about this new sound?
       
      I can’t say this is my new sound and this is what to expect from me. This is just a track that we made to try out a more pop sound. At a certain point every artist wants to try certain things and new sounds and that’s what happened with this song.  It was also a great collaboration with Garibay. We knew each other and ended up in the studio together. The production process was so fast. After 2 days we ended up with this and we realised “why not release it? It’s got great lyrics and a great meaning. There’s even going to be a club mix which will sound more like the Andrew Rayel you know with a Trancey sound. So all the fans don’t worry too much. I’m just going to try these things once in a while but my main focus is trance and electronic dance music and it will always be like that.
      What are your thoughts on the revival of Trance that seems to be happening now?
       
      Oh it’s great. I mean, different people see it in a different way but for me it’s great because it means there is more trance music and more tracks for me to play in my set. Obviously when there’s more trance music and more artists getting into it then the quality improves and it’s just awesome that there’s more of it. More to play on my radio show Find My Harmony! It’s great for me in general.
       
      I’m talking to you from one of the smaller Australian cities called Brisbane. We have a strong Trance following here but it’s much smaller than the larger cities. Around 500 people for a sold out event. Having played at so many legendary clubs and massive festivals do the smaller more intimate events still appeal to you or is it all in the hands of you’re booking agent at this point?
       
      I know Brisbane, I’ve been there many times. Yeah absolutely. We do smaller shows all the time. Obviously the agents prefer the bigger shows but I never want to miss out on the small clubs and small cities because there’s fans everywhere and not everyone has money to buy tickets to Sydney or Melbourne. I always want to please the fans so we’re doing our best to get out to the smaller cities. The energy most of the time is 3 times more intense because these people don’t get as many shows and they just go crazy and know all the tracks and sing along.
       
      I find a big difference between Techno, EDM or Trance crowds in their energy. Have you noticed this and what’s your favourite crowd to play to?
       
      Trance music itself is different and it tends to be more emotional and more melodic. So it brings more meaning and emotion than techno music which is more rhythmical. Or EDM which is more banging and rave type of music. Trance has more emotion to the melodies and this is why people connect faster and stronger to this music. You can see people crying and getting very emotional and that’s the crowd I love.
       
      Your level of production ability really grew in a few short years. What advice do you have for new producers when the market is overflowing with people trying to breakthrough?
       
      Production skills always grow. I’m constantly learning. I’m watching U-Tube Videos and reading things I try to always keep improving. This is my advice. Keep learning and researching and asking other producers questions. Watch tutorials online. We live one life and there will never be a time when you know everything. In the early stages you want find the sound you really like. Like an artist you really enjoy. Try to get as close to that sound as possible. Then you’ll learn the skills to do that. Then you’re ready for the next level which is finding your own sound that hasn’t been heard before. And this is what will take you to the next level.
       
      What DAW do you use and why?
       
      I use Q-Base. Probably 99% Q-Base 1% Ableton for small things. It doesn’t really matter what you use as long as you use it the right way. They’re pretty much built the same way and can do the same things. It’s a matter of comfort.
       
      What’s your favourite plugin?
       
      This is a hard one. I have so many favourite plugins! I love Silent, Zebra and Invisible Limiter.

      Showing a whole other side to his artistic brilliance, Andrew Rayel teams up with super producer Garibay for this new, steamy and pop-scented single.  With Jake Torrey on vocals and a flurry of laidback grooves and catchy guitar plucks to boot, ‘Last Summer’ is bound to be the best one yet!
       

      About Andrew Rayel:
      He's the modern-day Mozart -- today's leading talent in the ever-growing electronic dance music scene.  He's the pride of Moldova, known for his unique and very own sound.  He is Andrei Rata, better known as Andrew Rayel.
       
      Born on July 21st, 1992, his young age never stopped him from taking the lead amongst the next generation of EDM producers.  Developing strong musical skills, he studied orchestral music and kicked off his producing career at only 13 years of age.  It didn't take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds.  He created a truly unique sonic signature - one of piano power, harmonic balance, and euphoric tales.  And so, years later, his originals and remixes are praised by many and loved by more.  But, rest assured, the Andrew Rayel story has only just begun.
       
      “Trance was the perfect solution, as it is a combination of melody, harmony and energy, elements that I prefer the most," says Andrew Rayel.  Having Armin van Buuren supporting his tracks on the world famous ‘A State of Trance’ radio show had always been a dream of Andrew’s.  Sometimes, dreams come true.  His tracks: '550 Senta,' 'How Do I Know' ft. Jano, 'Aeon of Revenge,' 'Once in a Lifetime Love,' ' My Reflections,' 'Horizon,' 'I’ll Be There,' ‘Dark Warrior,’ ‘One in a Million’ and much more all made it to the show, often voted ‘Tune of the Week’ and ‘Future Favourite.’ The trance scene embraced Andrew's refreshing sound, giving him a very warm welcome.
       
      Andrew’s tracks found a solid home on the ‘A State of Trance’ and ‘Armind’ labels, both part of the Armada Music family.  With such impressive originals, it didn't take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes.  Andrew was lucky enough to take on remix duties for tracks by: Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, W&W, Dash Berlin and many more. Earning the support of the DJ elite, the Rayel sound has spread all across the globe, from underground clubs to mainstream festivals.
       
      Although Andrew’s career is still in its early stages, Andrew has already DJ’d at the world's most legendary clubs and massive festivals. From Kazantip, Global Gathering, Creamfields, A State of Trance, Trancefusion, Transmission, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnivals, Ball En Blanc and much more.  Not to forget performing and selling out world-wide venues such as: New City Gas, Exchange LA, Marquee New York, Ruby Sky San Francisco, Zouk Kuala Lumpur & Singapore, Colosseum in Jakarta, not to forget the magical Island ‘Ibiza’ in which he has performed at clubs such as: Ushuaïa, Amnesia, & Privilege and more, as well as earning a Las Vegas Residency at the age of 21 at Marquee Las Vegas.
       
      As a result of his hard work and dedication, fans voted him to become one of the Top 100 DJs in the world, as well as breakout DJ & Producer and highest climber in the poll voting, alongside many world-wide nominations such as the IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) which is hosted yearly in Miami during Winter Music Conference week.
       
      2014 was the year that saw the first ever artist album from Andrew Rayel entitled: ‘Find Your Harmony’ which has taken the world by storm, alongside his sensational hit collaboration with Armin van Buuren: ‘EIFORYA.’ Andrew Rayel is now an artist that has released 2 artists albums on his home label ‘Armada Music.’ In 2014 ‘Find Your Harmony’ was released as the first ever artist album, followed up by ‘MOMENTS’ in 2017 and establishing his own record label under the Armada umbrella in 2018 with ‘inHarmony Music.’
       
      The road to success has just begun and Andrew Rayel is ready to take on the world in the years ahead. "I believe music is a universal language that unites people with nothing but love.  I intend to make sure that my tracks are all about emotions and happiness.  That's what's driving music, making the world a better place," says Andrew Rayel.

      Symbiotic proudly announces Armin van Buuren, the undisputed king of trance and one of the world’s biggest DJs.  Armin will return to Melbourne for the first time since 2015 for ISTORIA 2018.
        Armin, one of the most iconic artists of all time, will make his debut on the Istoria stage this April at Festival Hall, Melbourne.  The Dutch superstar is driven by a relentless passion for trance music and he will bring a unique energy to the stage for all Istorians.
      Joining the world’s most loved DJ on the Istoria stage will be Ørjan Nilsen, Will Atkinson and Ruben de Ronde.  Fans can expect huge performances from each artist, as they take Istorians on a journey not to forget, this April.
      Istoria is in its second year and is already the biggest Australian born trance event on the annual calendar.  Istoria is known for its unique, one of a kind production to compliment the journey of trance music.  Due to the limited capacity of Festival Hall, we are expecting a fast sell out and encourage everyone to sign up for pre-sale to have first access to tickets.
