Boogs was born in Melbourne Australia and grew up on an appetite of hip-hop and electro; buying records from the age of ten years old.
His love for music then drove him towards more electronic sounds during the early nineties. After meeting Voiteck who introduced him to underground techno, his vision for the future was sealed.
Buying equipment to set up his studio he also began his dj career spinning everything from jazz/funk, break beats to minimal techno/electro and house. The diverse nature of his style led to quick recognition with residencies at some of Melbourne's most cutting edge clubs (Lounge, Revolver) moving on to raves and smaller underground parties.
When Truck Musik was established in late 1995, Boogs joined forces with Voiteck to start their own club night called Bedroom Research to pursue what they saw as the future of music. Although it only ran for 8 months they developed their own audience and sound enabling an output for their unique style.
In 1999 they decided to take their sound to the world embarking on a 3-month tour of the U.S.A and Canada playing in such cities as Chicago, Detroit, L.A., San Francisco, Toronto and Hamilton.
Upon returning to Melbourne Boogs started his own club night entitled Compound (Saturdays @ Lounge) where the music policy was robot soul. In its first year the club played host to internationals such as: Common Factor, Herbert, I-Cube, Gilb'r, Adam Freeland, Freq Nasty and American DMC Champ P-Trix. Boogs still heads up Saturday nights at Lounge now entitled Loose Fit. Every Saturday Boogs brings you 8 hours of house, beats, breaks & electro all delivered with an eye to the future.
Then defying normal sleeping patterns & exhaustion limits, it's straight onto Sunday mornings @ Revolver, for another 4 hours; his residency since 2001. He has brought a new vibe and style to the recovery set and often you will find it's Full House when he is on the decks wether it be 10pm or 10am!
Melbourne street press labelled Boogs the 'Local Blow Up of 2002' and he was recently polled as #22 in the Technics inthemix50 - The Australian Top 50 DJ Poll 2004. The Age Newspaper profiled Boogs as "..the hippest & hottest DJ in Melbourne in May 2004. Boogs is most impressive in a 3 deck set up that guarantees you will shake what ya mama gave ya.."
