MELBOURNE'S ONLY WEEKLY FRIDAY NIGHT!
This week we have 2 very special guest's fresh from their UK tour. Boom - Fridays & Gearbox Digital are proud to present Splinta & Rufio.
Splinta has made a huge impact on the hard dance scene over the last 5 years. Formally the lead dancer of Australia’s best shuffle crew “The Newcastle Rockers”, Splinta has now become Australia’s leading Hard Dance Producer. Realising his passion extended further than just dancing, Splinta learnt the art of music production by attending the SAE Institute of Perth, taught by Ableton sponsored producer, Hykus. Within the first few months of gaining his certificate, Splinta was signed to renowned labels such as Kiddfectious, Traffic Records, Tranztek Recordings, United Styles, Rave Me, Ultraviolence, PHD, Digitally Infected, Gearbox Digital, Friction, Zonetraxx and the list goes on.
Splinta over the last 2 years has also had many tracks on world wide cd compilations such as Total Music for Goodgreef, LW Recordings for Future Hard Dance Classics & Global Hard Dance Anthems Vol 1 & 2.
Many of his tracks have gone to Number 1 in the charts which has lead him to work on productions and perform with some of the biggest names in the industry: Headhunterz, Wildstylez, Alex Kidd, Organ Donors, Kidd Kaos, Mike Steventon, Side E-Fect, Danny Williamson, Klonez & Luca Antolini. Splinta’s production skills have become so good that the likes of Andrea Monitorsi, Busho, DJ Husband & DJ Generator have remixed his tracks. When it comes to remixes duties, Splinta has his name on almost every Hard Dance label there is.
Combining Splinta’s chart topping productions, flawless mixing and mashups that have been downloaded by the thousands, it’s no surprise that he made his DJ’ing debut on the Orange stage at Defqon1 Australia - 2012 & returned to play in 2013. He’s gained a monthly residency (in his home town) of Newcastle’s number one night club King Street Hotel, at the event known as Style - which has fast become one of Australia’s leading Hard Dance club nights. Splinta has also headlined nearly every Hard Dance club in Australia including Home Night Club, Daydreams, Hard Effekt, Dominate, Various QDance Events & Force Events just to name a few.
To branch out from the Hard Dance scene and show his passion for all styles of electronic music, Splinta has teamed up with DJ & producer Dexi and created the alias DUNE. With huge support from QDance Australia after hearing their forth coming album, Dune will be making their debut in the main arena for Headhunters Wild with Style tour Sydney!
It hasn’t taken long for Splinta to be booked to play in the UK … 2014 will be the year that Splinta not only becomes a producer on an international scale but will showcase his DJ skills to the world!
Driving hard dance in Australia and rapidly amassing a loyal following, there's no doubt that Rufio is becoming hot property.
Three years ago, Rufio (aka Clinton Wilken) took to the decks with a determination that only the best of the best DJs possess. Since then, he’s mastered the art of mixing and played support to some of the biggest names in the business – Alex Kidd, Antrax, Lucy Fur, Mike Steventon and Side Effect, just to name a few.
After graduating successfully from SAE in Sound Production, Rufio has released major dance floor bangers that have slaughtered the TrackItDown charts, with his remix of ‘You Don’t Love Me’ Rinski ft. Jamers Kitcher reaching the top 5 on TID and #2 on Audiojelly. His killer tracks have led to a slew of well known producers banging down his door with requests to collaborate with him as well as numerous invitations to guest mix on podcasts and radio, including Gearbox, the current #1 trending podcast listened to by every serious hard dance lover in the world.
Universal Music writer and artist, Hykus, is also a massive supporter of Rufio with big claims that he’s more than just a DJ.
‘I see you as being a performer … your creativeness shines’.
Rufio knows how to play to the crowd and his sets are guaranteed to take you on a crazy, high-energy journey that always leaves everyone begging for just ‘ONE MORE!’
A fresh talent and true soldier of the hard dance scene, Rufio is the one to watch in 2014.
