F rom tough-minded house and techno to cavernous, dub-inflected post-bass excursions, Deepchild has earned a reputation as a groundbreaking producer, respected DJ and electrifying live-performer. Based in Berlin, the Australian artist has performed at many of the world’s most respected electronic music institutions: Detroit’s Movement Festival, the Amsterdam Dance Event and EXIT Festival in Serbia, as well as at famed nightclubs the world over, including numerous appearances at Berlin’s legendary Berghain, Watergate and Tresor, amongst hundreds of others.

Highly acclaimed for his dynamic and deeply personal take on raw, defaced yet decidedly seductive techno, Deepchild’s passion for exploration of the form precedes him – reflected by an irrepressible fan base and steady critical praise. A demanding international tour schedule, his chart-topping 2012 album Neukölln Burning, and a string of successful 12-inches have solidified Deepchild’s reputation as a pioneering underground producer.

Playing alongside legends such as Richie Hawtin, Green Velvet, Jeff Mills, Seth Troxler, Machinedrum, and Dan Bell – along with remixing the work of renowned producers such as New Order, Booka Shade and Thomas Schumacher – Deepchild has continued to develop respect for his talent from peers and fans alike. His productions and remixes have been featured on labels such as Thoughtless, Trapez, Highgrade, Sleaze, Resopal, Caduceus, Get Physical, Freerange, Convex Industries and many more.

The launch of his new online radio podcast series, Diversions, plus a tour of the US in early 2014, hotly anticipated new releases and a string of shows during the upcoming European winter have made for a very busy and exciting time for Deepchild. When he’s not on the road touring, he’s relentlessly slaving away in his Berlin studio, twisting and turning the dials to create his signature futurist sounds.

Clinically, surgically sharp, yet always of a complete rhythmicity, Deepchild smoulders in every sense of the word.” – BigShot Magazine
