Welcome to Deepchild’s radio podcast: Deepchild Diversions. The series launched at the beginning of 2013 as a musical exploration to the outer realms of electronic music, and beyond.
Deepchild has a long history in radio programming and presenting. From 1997-2005 he hosted Electroplastique on Radio 2SER 107.3FM Sydney (www.2ser.com), playing Australian electronic music from experimental electronica to hip-hop, house and techno. Beginning as a platform to showcase local music from the Clan Analogue collective (www.clananalogue.org), the show’s vision expanded to encompass national independent artists, club-gatherings and events, with a continued focus on debuting new and undiscovered talent. Guests on the show included the seminal Severed Heads and multi award-winning Pnau who recently collaborated with Elton John. Co-hosts included Australian hip-hop hero DJ Bentley, Berlin-based audio-visual artist AUTO64, and Clan Analogue head-honcho Gordon Finlayson, along with numerous guest-hosts and regular contributors.
From 2005-2008 Deepchild was the solo-host of the drive-time Sunsets show on Sydney’s largest independent station FBi Radio, 94.5FM (www.fbiradio.com), playing house, techno, dub and electronica from around the globe. Sunsets was awarded ‘Best Radio Show’ at the 2006 Australian Dance Music Awards and was FBi Radio’s most popular specialist music show during Deepchild’s hosting tenure. Show guests included Matthew Dear, Booka Shade and many more international artists.
Deepchild is excited to be back in the radio hot seat from his base in Berlin to bring you the Diversions podcast.
