From 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. Numerous appearances at Berlin’s legendary Berghain, Panorama Bar, Watergate and Tresor number 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 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 command respect from peers and fans alike. His productions and remixes have been featured on labels such as Future Classic, Leisure System, Thoughtless, Trapez, Highgrade, Sleaze, Resopal Schallware, Get Physical Music, Freerange and many more.

Regular US and Pan-Asian festival tours, live audio lectures and tutorials, stellar reviews from high-end music journals such as  Rolling Stone Magazine and The Wire, over a decade of of radio broadcast experience and an enduringly outspoken socio-political voice have solidified Deepchild as a powerhouse in the electronic music landscape. When not touring, he’s devising new work for video-game and sound design projects, refining his signature futurist club-savvy sound and burning old orthodoxies to the ground…

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