Born 1966 in Sydney, Sylk first herd Goa trance somewhere in the bush east of Hobart Tasmania in 1997 and fell instantly in love with the sound and the culture. By early 1998 he was helping organise small bush parties around Hobart and by the end of 98 he began learning the craft of DJing.
Sylk moved to Sydney late in 1998 and hooked up with other Sydney DJ to form the Trancendance party crew Trancendance was very active organising bush parties around Sydney through to 2003-4. Trancendance also held the Earthdance franchise in Sydney from 99 to 2003.
During this period Sylk played regularly for Trancendance and many other crews including: Liquid labyrinth, Artcore, Earthcore, The Dreaming & Speaker Huggers just to name a few. Supporting headline acts like: Infected Mushroom, Etnica, Bitmonks, S>Range, Space Tribe, Antix, Phony Orphants, Stella Nutella, Greg Coyle, Shift and more…
Sylk was one of the 1st dj’s in Sydney to pick up the new progressive sound coming out of Europe, weaving many a memorable morning stomp. These days Sylk focuses on the fat stomping progressive beats of artists like; Day Din, Klopfgeister, Fabio, Ranji, Nelix etc..
With his roots in the Goa sound of the mid 90’s Sylk still believes a good bush party should be a coherent musical journey from beginning to end and loves to play at parties where the DJ’s are prepared to collaborate to coordinate that journey.
Sylk moved to Kalgoorlie WA in 2011 and despite the lack of bush parties around Kalgoorlie he still collects new tunes with a passion and plays whenever the opportunity arises.
