ABOUT MISS MATCH
Refusing to be pushed off the decks by the boys, Miss Match has risen fast through the ranks of a male-dominated industry to become one of Australia’s hottest and solidly entertaining female DJs.
Playing within the popular genre HOUSE, her sets consist of a range of Deep, Jackin’, Funky, Vocal, Electro through to her most loved genres of Tech House & Nu Disco where she is now most passionate. This adaptability and enthusiasm behind the decks makes her incredibly accessible in any club.
Falling in love with house music years before she even picked up the headphones, it didn’t take long for the country girl to make the transition from fan to feature player, with residencies over the years at Sydney hot-spots Bungalow 8, Moulin Rouge, Le Panic, Arthouse, YU, Cherry Bar, The Bank Hotel and the Du5k & Penguin cruises - even appearing exclusively as the DJ for television’s “The Footy Show” throughout 2009.
After just three years of being on the circuit, an overseas trip in 2007 being asked to play in Tropicana, Paradise Club & Lounge Bar in Mykonos, led to a summer residency the following year on the famous party island. The icing on her international career was an invitation to play at London’s Ministry Of Sound in 2008, which was followed by gigs in Malaysia, Singapore, Bali, USA, and headlining for the “Feel Negumbo” Festival in Sri Lanka in 2010.
Relocating from Sydney to Melbourne in January 2012, Miss Match took a year off to reflect on the career she had built in Sydney, have a break and determine where she wanted to be in the Melbourne music scene. Focusing more on the music she loved to play, she quickly secured a Sunday residency at the popular city bar Beer Deluxe for summer 2012/13, played the prestigious Portsea Polo event alongside Eric Powell, is now a resident at the infamous PURR Events as well as keeping up appearances in Sydney & Interstate.
Not content to stay behind the decks, Miss Match is involved in event management and music production. During Australia’s summer for the past decade she has run an intimate VIP yacht cruise ‘The Penguin’ in Sydney which has seen her play alongside legendary DJs such as Andy Ward (Soul Central), Jeremy Healy (UK), Mistress Barbara, Groove Asassins (UK), The Potbelleez, Sean Doyle (Soul Heaven), Helena (US) and Groove Terminator (Simon Lewicki). Another cruise Miss Match ran in Sydney off the back of The Penguin was ‘du5k’ - an intimate event focusing on bringing great people together for the love of Tech House & focusing on giving local DJ’s the chance to play. Tech House is where Miss Match’s passion lies and thus the cruise ‘du5k’ was created purely to follow this path.
Having started production back in 2008 her track Tarantism was first off the ranks, with Miss Georgia Brown (Australia) on vocals and scratch ensembles by the talented hip-hop group Blis’n’Eso. In 2009 her Progressive Tech House track Ophelia and three remixes by Boogie State, Craig Obey & Rave Radio, as well as Sydney’s Tech House guru Ben Kelly were all released on iTunes, Beatport, and Juno Download (UK). Her foray into music production has been received with open arms the world over, with some major labels catching Miss Match fever. “Piano Talk” was launched at Club 23 in Melbourne is created a stir which led to a monthly residency in the exclusive club & is available on Beatport now too. Daraboka Sunrise is her latest production but is not yet available to the public so stay tuned for Miss Match’s funky deep house release.
