Hydraulix is the alter ego of Sydney based producer Damien Williams. Damien’s obsession with music began at a young age growing up listening to hip hop, rap and punk rock but it wasn’t until he was 20 when he put everything he had into music and decided to become a DJ.
It wasn’t long after getting in to mixing records that Hydraulix decided to put his hand to production, crafting dance floor destroyers but also drawing inspiration from the records mad by his childhood hip-hop idols such as DJ Premier, Dr Dre and Pete Rock. Despite making bass music, the roots of his sound can really be heard in the percussive and rhythmic nature of his tracks.
You never know what to expect from Hydraulix’s versatile high-energy sets and what makes him such a pleasure to watch and hear. “Apart from moving between genres and styles, I try and include as many brand new and exclusive tunes, edits and VIP’s from myself and all the mates. You should be able to come to a show and hear a set that no one else can re-create.”
Over the years Hydraulix has received airplay from Triple J and BBC’s Radio 1, as well as support on his tunes from some of the biggest artists in Bass Music such as Bro Safari, UZ, Excision, Snails, Rico Tubbs, Alex Young, Party Favor and many more.
