The weekend is upon us and it’s time for a new weekly feature, the DJ Spotlight. Each week I’ll highlight a different club DJ that I just can’t get enough of. I’m always looking for great new/remixed music and love sharing some of the best DJs that I’ve found. If you have any favorites or suggestions of DJs that I need to hear, leave a comment below and include a link to their work and let me know.
Kicking off the DJ spotlight is a talented DJ from Sydney, Australia, DJ Bolt. Spinning a great collection of high-energy and feel-good commercial club tracks, DJ Bolt will have you rockin’ in your car, your home, during your workout, anywhere! I really enjoy his knack for taking great club tracks from around the world and pulling them together in a cohesive, danceable, and memorable mix. While I may not know all of the tracks at first listen, they get into my head and stay with me, even after the music has stopped.
DJ Bolt has always been a great fan of music. He first became exposed to dance music while going out on the gay club scene during the 90s. He was drawn to mixing as he wanted to make his own CDs where he knew and enjoyed all of the tracks and not just a couple of them (yes, we all feel that way). His popularity has grown, partially because of his skills at creating mixes that seem to flow naturally from song to song, while keeping the energy up, but also because his mixes have such broad appeal. In short, DJ Bolt creates good fun music that you can listen to over and over again.
DJ Bolt releases about one new mix each month, though sometimes we’ve gotten lucky and have received more than one at a time. DJ Bolt’s latest mix “Songs Stuck in my Head” is a collection of 40 tracks / 200 minutes of some of his favorite new and current hits along with some great classics that will bring back good memories.
If you’re in Sydney next Saturday, August 4, you can catch DJ Bolt spinning live for Bear Pride 2012 from 9pm to midnight at BEAR PIT at the Imperial Hotel. If not, catch DJ Blots’ mixes online. You can subscribe to him on iTunes as well as listen to all of his mixes on PodOmatic.
