PODCASTS & MIXES
Brent began his career in Sydney in the 1990’s and played a large part in the underground warehouse, circuit, party and gay scene. This is where he forged his reputation as a globally respected DJ.
He was a regular as the famous Mardi Gras Party and the associated Sleaze Ball…at one point playing up to 20 000 at one event.
On the Sydney gay scene he graced most clubs including DCM (now closed), The Albury (now closed), The Exchange, The Midnight Shift, The Oxford, Gilligans, The Unicorn (now closed), Black Market (now closed), Stonewall, Arq, Frisky….you name it, he has spun there.
Moving to London in 1995 he continued his DJ career playing at clubs like Heaven, Ku, Barcode, Trade, Beyond, Escape, Madam JoJos, Matinee London, Space London, Shadow Lounge, Juicy, As One, Playtime, Profile, Lo Profile, Salvation, Ultra and Crash as well as numerous warehouse parties and events such as the Hustlaball London, Universe, Famous 5 to name a few.
He currently can be found spinning in the ultra cool Soho places like the Edge, Rupert Street and Shadow Lounge. Brent’s versatility as a DJ is expressed at his residencies which are as varied as his music. He spins regularly at fetish clubs and events like Hard On, Sweat and Hotwired in contrast to the ‘glamorous and costumed styled’ events such as the Wig Party and the Masked Ball or global circuit parties such as Delice Dream. Each event demanding a different sound which Brent aptly delivers.
His philosophy to music is to be a ‘teacher’ and an ‘entertainer’ and the interplay of these two roles.
Internationally he has spun around the world at parties and events from 200 to 20 000 people and in cities that include Toronto, Montreal, Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Ibiza, Berlin, Rome, Milan, Cologne, Singapore, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Malmo, Rio, Capetown, Zurich, Mykonos and Barcelona.
Brent’s music is best described as versatile, uplifting, funky, chunky, sexy and turbo charged. He is as happy to play a retro set or a driving underground tech house set, such is his ability, versatility and talent as a DJ. He embraces most styles including Deep House, Funky House, Electro, Commercial House, Uplifting House, Tech House, Tribal, Circuit Sounds, Nu Funk House, Remixes, Bootlegs and Mashups. This is best shown in the wide variety of podcasts he releases and that are FREE to download.

What is a Brentcast? Its is like any other podcast except the content of the music is not influenced by a specialist theme, club or live session.
All the music on a Brentcast is usually fresh and greatly reflects my personal tastes. As a professional DJ I have a responsibility to work with a club to ensure the music policy is in line with the expectations of the the venue and crowd. A Brentcast is free of this expectation.
If I was to play what i wanted in a club, this is what you would get.
