Gig Highlights:

The Gig on the pic is a home coming at “Parklife” in Brisbane in 2006 after 2 years of solid touring to Canada, UK , Brazil , china , USA , Scotland , South East Asia and around Australia like a washing machine on spin dry , a real moment of satisfaction and recognition that we had taken our art to the world and our home crowd paid homage , a moment of celebration  exhalation and exhilaration all mashed together in a big brizzy daytime fest on dusk.

T in the park with Kid Kenobi in Scotland to over 20 thousand punter’s , we were the only breaks act in a techno / house room , we were terrified but just as we were coming on bouncing kangaroo’s and oozie ozzie ozzie chants filled the air and we had the best and biggest set of the festival in the SLAAM Tent.

The first time i got booked as a headline act over the dj’s in Adelaide , I was asked to MC for Goldie at a Beach Party and afterwards had the local dj’s spinning for me for the first time , as opposed to me representing the dj’s , a moment of honor and respect.

Being asked to join Michael Franti on stage every night of his 2002 tour to freestyle with him and Radio Active.

Taking the stage with my band Zephyr Timbre to support on a national tour with Jameriquoi in 2005.

Brief Bio:

A familiar name in Australia’s mainstream music business with a legendary reputation within the country’s thriving dance music scene, Shureshock has joined forces with many of the globe’s finest DJs, from Carl Cox to Goldie.

A young Brisbane upstart, he found his way onto high rotation on the Triple J radio network, then on up to the Big Day Out before being cast in a nationwide support tour with Jamiroquai, working the stage in the nations largest and most iconic venues. In local terms, and all this by 2002, you’d think there wasn’t much left to conquer.

So it was back to roots, and his roots were in the underground music scene.

The now-famous collaboration with Jesse Desenberg (Kid Kenobi), later to become Australia’s No. 1 DJ, resulted in Australia’s premier MC-DJ tandem, MC Shureshock and Kid Kenobi. It started with a shared love of break beat. It resulted in sell-out tours of the U.S.A, South America, China, United Kingdom, and South-East Asia – and an enduring partnership, which now celebrates 15 years in the game.

Commanding great respect as an independent artist and vocalist, Shureshock has worked with the likes of Fatboy Slim, Andy C, Stanton Warriors, Krafty Kuts, Freq Nasty, Pendulum, The Crystal Method, and DJ Q-Bert.

With all this, it’s his humility, generosity, and gift for communication that you remember. The skills, techniques, and experience he’s here to share is what you’ll never forget.
