From the hours of 9am to 5pm, what do you get up to?
Wake up, quick shower and get to the studio by about 10.30. On a usual day i’ll get in and spend an hour or so bouncing emails and checkin if any new music has been sent. You know, scoping the days to-do’s before getting started.
After that I start working on my weekly load of radio ads that I produce for clients. From about 2 till evening I’m pre-recording my mixes for radio, liaising with my booking agents and promoters locking away my club shows and gigs, working with Warner music requesting and clearing the copyrights for material used on the current CD release.
And last but not least conceptualizing and programming the next CD release and lay down some recording!
Where can people see you perform?
I’m at ONE WORLD SPORT most Wednesdays and Friday nights! On the weekends I do a shit load of guest spots at TANK, V-BAR, SKY GARDEN, PUMP HOUSE, RED ROOM, QBH MELBOURNE, ROLLIN ROCK NOOSA, GLASS HOUSE, FANNYS NEWCASTLE, and RNB SUPERCLUBS across Australia. Check MYSPACE.COM/DJGWIZARD for current confirmed gigs and CD Tour dates.
For love or money?
LOVE most definitely
What future endeavors are in the pipeline?
Getting my record label established and working on international collab projects. Can’t say too much at this stage but O’seas is most likely to be on the cards with an international guest spot schedule….
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
At the top of my game with all my ventures running themselves, havin a lil son who I can bounce on my knee in the studio, taking it easy living off royalty cheques and holidaying 6 months a year!
