DJ Dave Fernandes
RESIDENT DJ / House of Mince (AUS)
Entrenched in house, techno, disco and electro, Sydney DJ Dave Fernandes builds left-leaning amalgamations of these styles to create unique dance floor experiences. Currently a resident of The House of Mince 2017-18 thus far has seen him play Buttons Berlin and Red Light Radio in Amsterdam on a recent visit to Europe, headlined ¿Club D'érange? in Melbourne, whilst in Sydney held support sets alongside X-Coast, Cassegrain, Honey Dijon, Aurora Halal, DJ Hell, Volvox, K-Hand and Boris.
An integral figure in Sydney’s club and warehouse depths since 2005, and as a member of HAHA Industries, one of Sydney’s premiere, long-running, electronic music event and touring crews, Fernandes forges a groove that appeals to the committed, deeply set and versatile listener. This dedication to inimitable dance floor impressions has brought Fernandes to support HVISKE, HTRK, DJ Sotofett, DJ Fett Burger, Africa Hitech, Deetron, Juan Atkins, Robert Hood, Basic Soul Unit, Mark E and Gardland (Hunter Gatherer label launch).
In recent years in duo with Dean Dixon as D&D, Fernandes has held the long-night-helm at Revolver, Mad Racket, Subsonic Music Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival, Pause Festival and Burning Seed, to name but a few. This tireless devotion to diversity in the Australian dance music scene is reflected in the 11 year history of D&D and HAHA Industries, having toured and played alongside of Optimo, Tim Sweeney, Auntie Flo, NO ZU and Sal P (Liquid Liquid), A Guy Called Gerald, Alex Smoke, Kenny Larkin, Baba Stiltz and KZA.
