DT582 – Needs No Sleep


Melbourne-based DJ/producer and four to the floor guru Needs No Sleep is putting out some of the freshest hard-hitting deeper sounds on the Australian club circuit. Having only launched the project in early 2017 he’s so far linked with Club Cartel, Vicious, Uprise (NYC). Needs No Sleep’s carefully crafted sets are well on the way to grace sound systems all over.

His latest club thumper is a collaboration with Zeskullz – Russia’s first electronic act to be signed as a worldwide artist with BMG – on Black & Blue, a tough as nails tech house bomb with a devastating baseline that has to be heard to be believed, along with an infectious vocal turn from Mikey Ceaser.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Rolling tech house with a dirtier edge, and that’s all!

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Driving baselines that make you want to dance without even realising it.

What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
Circus in Melbourne is always a good time and is a gig i enjoy playing. The crowd there are all tech house enthusiasts

What have you got coming up?
Plenty of releases! I have been working non stop around the clock writing lots of tunes so there will be plenty to be heard from me this year.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
