Melbourne-born and bred, DJ Magnus clearly communicates an infectious passion for music through the decks. If you missed his debut gig at Cairns Tropical Pride in 2007, he may well have had you sweating it out at Big Gay Day (Brisbane), I Remember House (Sydney / Melbs), Midsumma T-Dance (Melbourne), CoastOut (Coffs Harbour), ChillOut (Daylesford), Christchurch Pride (NZ), Rebel Bar (Melbs / Sydney), Broken Heel Festival (Broken Hill), Geelong Rainbow Festival, Tropical Fruits Festival (Lismore), or at the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras AfterParty.
His signature sound of uplifting vocal House and an instinct for reading a crowd whilst delivering goosebumps on the dance floor, have earned him a respected place as one of Australia's finest House music DJs. However, he also shows fantastic versatility by playing Deep House and Trance for his fans.
He's held residencies all over Australia, including The Wickham / White Wolf (Brisbane), Daywash / Hot Kandi / ARQ / The Colombian (Sydney), Rock City / Sircuit / The GH / Sundaylicious, Viper Room, The Peel (Melbourne), and Flamingos (Hobart).
DJ Magnus has also supported many local & International acts including Heather Small (M People), Paul Mac, Kelly Rowland, Wynter Gordon & played alongside DJs Seamus Haji, eSQUIRE, Jolyon Petch, Dani Toro and Wayne G to name a few.
His online mixsets consistently rank in the Top 10 on podomatic.com, including holding the #1 position several times, and his collaboration on the music project "Bootleg House" in 2014 spawned him an online hit with their "Gold Life" cover-mash, both locally and internationally!
More recently, on Australia Day 2017, he hosted his very first fundraising event for Black Dog Institute (raising $8K), launched a successful weekly Sunday Session called "SHAG" with well-known Melbourne DJ "Queen Martine", and joined a brand new LGBTQIA Superclub called "PLAY Fridays" as resident DJ and Musical Director.
In 2018, he soared to new heights with his very first "AURAL" Trance event on NYD, with a series of follow-up parties, plus their new "FunHouse" events (Melbs, Hobart, Lismore), collaborating on both of these with fellow Melbourne DJ Damien Mack.
But the real highlight of his career so far that same year, was his signing to boutique studio Melodic Music as a singer/songwriter and producer. He wrote, sung, co-produced, and officially released his original debut single called "Until I..." on iTunes worldwide on November 29th, followed shortly by two official remixes.
In 2019, he debuted at the 30th anniversary of the Tropical Fruits Festival, added four LIVE performances of "Until I..." included opening the Midsumma T-Dance in front of an estimated crowd of over 100,000 people !!!
He launched the Pool Party for Tropical Fruits on NYD 2020, and was equally excited to provide the music for the "Colours of Our Community" float in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade in March.
After the recent passing of his mother, he's relocated to Lismore to be involved with the Tropical Fruits organisation, and local community volunteering. He was voted onto the Fruits committee and was responsible for their socials, setting up their monthly "LIVE Fruits" live streams and the regular "Fruity Fridays" events.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and loss of gigs, he's also been pumping out monthly podcasts and live streams from home, to keep everyone dancing! And was part of the lineup for Fruits NYE 2021.
After a brief hiatus in Melbourne for a few months in early 2022, he has returned to Lismore to help the community rebuild and recover from the devastating floods. This has inspired his brand new music collab with local artist Benjamin Gully, doubling up as "MagicBean", and cohosting fundraising events to raise monies for those affected.
Peace, love & tunes.
