Malcolm McIntosh - DJ

With a musical background steeped richly in entertainment, Malcolm brings a profusion of personality and pilomotor reflex to Brisbane 's seminal dance floors. As a phonic pilgrim, for Malcolm, it is about the musical journey: he is the electronic conduit between the music and the auditor, and his odyssey into the underground becomes your own. With influences invested in such obscure names as Paul Kalkbrenner, Matteo Monero, Dousk, Bonobo and Marc Romboy, Malcolm brings an itinerary of experience to the decks, having been personally applauded by Funk D'Void while adding supports to such underground characters as John Digweed, Nick Warren, Sasha, Thomas Gold, John 00 Fleming, Jordan Suckley and more to his DJ journal. Malcolm brings a motley of polished sounds to the table, combining the best of commercial hooklines with undulating basslines and elaborate layers.

 

Malcolm's birth into the world of music has been deep seated and impressionable. Cultivated from the passion of classical music with the contrapuntal and textural lines of Bach, Brahms and Vivaldi alongside the rawness of Rolling Stones, the prog instrumentalism of Sky and the textural hooklines of Boney M and Abba and an education on the acoustic symphonious parts of guitar, Malcolm's first forays into music have been gilded and varied.

 

Unearthing an abandoned belt driven turntable compounded Malcolm's indoctrination with 7 vinyls for dancefloor music, but it was being exposed to the Kitshons, the Briais and the Rousey's of the world where the tactility for mixing changed from a mere buzz to a honed focal point. The appreciation for music from their textures to hooklines and basslines became a seizure of sounds and energy. An exposition into radio fine-tuned the technicals of Malcolm's craft, where a comprehensive knowledge of all things electronic established a secure foundation in technology, while adding personality and a persona to the sounds.

And while this capacity for industrial sounds continued, it was a genuine enchantment with the music that kept Malcolm behind the decks.

 

A valid feeling for music sees Malcolm traverse the path of the audio craftsman, where a campaign in trance and nu NRG in the late 90s and 2000s gave way to a junket through house, progressive house, deep house and techno. Textures, layers and meters have determined Malcolm's signature sets, where music is an escape and the dancefloor a new destination.

 

As an electronic executive of many floors across Queensland , Malcolm's sounds have played across every major festival, club and underground event since the turn of the century, from his residencies into then infamous Ja Jas Lounge, to The Met, Family, Monastery, Alhambra , Full Moon Parties and Future Music Festivals. His foray into Brisbane 's premium underground parties with Subtrakt, Buxton Records, Trance Classics, Lemon & Lime and Ulterior Motive remain a testament to his ventures and credibility into the ground breaking avant-garde sounds of today.
