DJ Mark Dynamix

Nudge Nudge Wink Wink – the party with a conscience, is on this weekend at the Billi Pub. DJs will be playing treasured sounds for the community, from the team event awarded Community Event of the Year 2020.

Are you ready? World renowned DJ, Mark Dynamix, and locally-based DJ The Who’s Who are ready. They join fantastic Cunning Stunts resident DJs, Lord Sut and Dale Stephen, to lay down delicious soundtracks for your spring merriment.

DJ Mark Dynamix is a pioneer of more than thirty years’ experience in Australia’s dance music industry, selling more albums than any other Australian DJ to date. Since he was 14 he has hosted Electronique Radio for two decades, was resident DJ at Sydney’s legendary Sublime Club; has played music festivals such as Prodigy and Field Of Dreams; and regularly hosted Triple J’s ‘Mix Up’. Oh, and, he’s also played Fabric, and the End, the Love Parade, the Boiler Room, Mambo, and Café Del Mar, and regularly tours across North America, Japan, and Europe. 

Mark has earned local and international respect playing alongside icons such as Faithless, Boy George, Joey Negro, Chicane, Paul Oakenfold, and Miguel Migs – all within the last few years. To be really honest, the list of his achievements just goes on and on and on… so, to put it simply – you don’t want to miss this show.

Also, making his Nudge Nudge Wink Wink debut this October is locally-based DJ, The Who’s Who. A somewhat mystical character who has spent many a night and day behind the decks – Is he an enigma or reality?
