Denizen first started making music when he was five, writing songs on a small toy organ. He’s now a master of what he calls electronic journey and grooves, someone who allows himself total music freedom, with the ability to go anywhere in his set rather than writing to a dance formula.
“My style is not typical at all,” he said. “It’s deep journey music that can go anywhere: unexpected, playful, deep, dark, uplifting, dynamic.”
He’s also one of the team behind Lu:sid Loops, a new event focused on electronic music hosted at Ground Control Coffee Roastery and launching 11 October.
We hung five with Denizen ahead of this new electronic event.

One piece of advice you’d give to a large group of people? Dance
One piece of advice you’d give an aspiring musician? Do what you want to do, not what is expected. Don’t be afraid to combine things that “shouldn’t” go together. Be quirky and fantastic. When I hear your tunes I want to get a glimpse into your soul.
Five musicians / artists you’d take on a roadtrip around Australia? I know I should choose Australian artists, but my music is heavily influenced by these guys so I would choose Bonobo, Beats Antique, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Thievery Corporation and, well I would choose myself because I would love to play with these guys!
The best gig you’ve ever played? It was actually at a lesbian dance party in Redfern, Sydney. OMG those girls put on a great party! It was an amazing vibe, amazing people and it went on well into the next day 🙂
Anything else? If you’re even just a little curious, come to Lu:sid Loops… you won’t regret it.
