Ryan aka DNGRFLD started his dj career running his own nights at a small bar in the Perth metro area, inviting artists and djs from around Perth and nationally to play. After being invited to play his first set at Ambar in 2010, he has become a regular on both sides of the decks (and the bar), and has since played at most of Perth’s bars and nightclubs, including residencies at Big Ape (Shape), Fork (Geisha), and Broken Social Club (Greenhouse). He has also recently been to Geraldton to headline Dubland 13 & flown to Karratha to headline a show for Y.O.L.O entertainment.
DNGRFLD’s high energy, party style sets have earned him slots at Perth’s internationally acclaimed event, Breakfest for the past two years, Parklife 2012, as well as Sets on the Beach Volume 10 & 11. This, along with his ever growing presence in Perth scene, has his feet planted firmly in the Boomtick Family as a resident for the award winning Japan 4 nights at Ambar Niteclub.
With DNGRFLD’s most noted influences being A. Skillz, Noisia and Jack Beats, it’s no surprise his sets jump between genres, tempo and intensity with a penchant to keep things fresh. Expect to hear moombahton, ghetto funk, trap, uk bass, deep house, breakbeat, electro, dubstep, drumstep and dnb in his set. His first original ghetto funk release on East Van Digital (Canada) in collaboration with good friend and partner in crime Bezwun, is out later in 2013. Also keep an eye out for edits, bootlegs and original releases from DNGRFLD in the not too distant future.
