Rich Curtis Bio:
There are few underground Australian DJ/producers with as good an ear for ‘big tunes’ as Rich Curtis. An honours graduate from the university of epic progressive house as taught by Professors Sasha, Digweed and Cattaneo, Rich has become one of the Queensland capital’s most valuable closing slamfest DJs with a relentless approach to his DJ sets; sets built on a foundation of chugging bottom end and
Since 2007 he’s been racking up the quality support slots across the south-east corner of Queensland, playing alongside Pappa, John Digweed Hernan Cattaneo, Charlie May, Jim Rivers, Reset Robot (Dave Robertson), Henry Saiz, Hybrid, Kosmas Epsilon, Marc Marzenit, Slam, Fergie, Danny Bonnici, Nathan Fake, Chris Fortier, Lee Burridge, Simon Baker, Vince Watson, Peter Horrevorts, Timo Maas, Desyn Masiello, PQM, Phil K, Ricky Ryan, Matt Rowan & Jaytech, Mind Electric, Chymera, Mark Dynamix, Sasha Le Monnier and Guy J among others. In 2010 Rich also made his debut Festival appearance at Future Music Festival, bringing his brand of underground big room tech-prog to the masses.
In mid-2010 Rich turned his attention to production and in the space of 3 weeks churned out his first batch of underground prog-tech/tech-house tunes, several of which caught the ear of Replug Records’ label boss Cid Inc (ex Mashtronic) who has continued to sign and remix some of Rich’s productions. Scoring a release on the hugely respected underground label run by Hernan Cattaneo, “Sudbeat”, saw Rich gain a reputation for studio output that is consistently “cool, fresh and unique”. Combine his increasingly busy DJ/production schedule with a monthly shows “Resolutions” on GoldenWingsMusic.com and “Foray” on Musica-por-Favor Radio, and guest appearances on JJJ and 4ZzZ radio and you get to understand why Rich Curtis has become such a valuable player on this local scene. His lifelong mission to bring the music is bearing fruit, and his studies at the school of prog are all but complete.
