Bazerk is a Melbourne based DJ with a big passion and love for both house music and techno, however techno is where the the right tempo sits for him when it comes to DJing. Starting at quite a young age he has over 10 years of experience behind the decks.
Bazerk is also known as the head honcho of ‘Sea No Creatures’ – a name which you may recognise from their monthly takeover’s in some of Melbourne’s most iconic night clubs.
What are the top 3 tracks that always picks you up when you are feeling a bit low or need a pick up?
My top 3 tracks – that’s quite a tough one! If I have to pick only 3 my number one track would have to be ‘Oxia – Domino’. The second would be ‘Dark Floors – Phunk Investigation’ which I’ve included in this Mini-Mix, and the third would be ‘Serge Devant & Damiano feat. Camille Safiya – Fearing Love’ – this song is definitely one of those pick me up tracks.
Could you please talk us through the name choice of Sea No Creatures?
The name ‘Sea No Creatures’ was actually quite a tricky name to come up with. The main concept behind it started off with the word ‘creatures’ – as dance, house and techno music lovers we tend to be creatures of night. We also wanted to involve the sea and sea animals – hence the Octopus logo. We went from ‘Little Creatures’ to ‘See No creatures’ to finally ‘Sea No Creatures’!
We can all get a bit frustrated with the excessive Facebook tagging in the music industry at times – what’s your take on it?
Facebook, social media and the Internet can be quite controlling and can consume a lot of time. If I could I would delete all my accounts I have, but we’re at a day and age where especially in this industry that we are in, social media plays a huge roll in what we do. Events promotion and marketing does take up a lot of your time but excessive tagging and event invites can be quite draining for people, and I think that’s why Facebook have give the option to not receive event invites and tagging approvals. If only it could go back to the days where promotion was flyer bombing a car park or shops.
