Hi! I'm Jordz. I'm an ambitious upcoming 19-year-old DJ and Producer, currently established in Melbourne, Australia, who initially found a passion for making and playing music in late 2016. At just 16, I went on to win the Monash University 'Emerging Producer Prize of 2017' with my first song 'TOM', continuing to experiment and create songs in the electronic dance music scene, while simultaneously gaining experience as a professional DJ, spinning tunes on the decks at various events.
I, like so many others, am a lover of music. So much so that I have decided to turn my passion into my career. My goal is to spread happiness through music - and what better way to do so than make sure your event becomes a great celebration! Upon DJing numerous gigs of all ages, sizes and themes, I believe that planning is crucial to making your night special. I have DJd events such as 13th, 18th, and 21st birthday parties, school formals, weddings, corporate events, as well as 80's and 90's themed celebrations. I am always open to new audiences and would love to be on board at your next gig - no matter what it may be. Contact me to see if my service will fit with your event.
What is your typical process when working with a new client?
I love getting to know my clients. What music do they like? Do they have any song requests? Once the initial details of the event are planned out, a conversation between the client and I is a great way to work out what's next; do they want to be involved in discussing and influencing the music for the night? Do they have specific details regarding the gig? Communication is key.
What background do you have in your field of practice?
I've been DJing for over two years, starting towards the end of 2016. So far I have played at numerous events, including 13ths, 16ths, 18ths, 21sts, and themed gigs including school discos and 80's/90's dress ups.
Genre-wise, most gigs revolve around Pop, Top 40's, Commercial, RnB, and House.
I also play less 'commercial' genres such as Tropical House, Progressive House, Bass and Trap.
I love every type of gig and my goal is to expand the types of gigs I have played at!
As for production, becoming Monash University's Emerging Producer of 2017 allowed me to buy and learn how to use FL Studio, and also gave me support from the music department at my high school. Upon finishing high school, I passed all of my auditions and now study Composition & Music Technology at Monash University.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I love music. Music has always made me happy, and in 2016 I realised that I wanted to make others smile through music! I was fortunate enough to have people around me who worked in the industry - giving me tips, advice, and lessons to become ready for gigs early on.
