DJ / producer Jamie Vlahos is part of a new generation of Melbourne based producers turning their back on the neon haze generated by the American EDM craze in favour of carving out their own distinct electro club style.
Hundreds of people jammed into a room, its 1AM, its extremely loud, its bright and everyone is moving as one. This is Vlahos’ sanctuary.
Melbournes renowned king of big room and Australia's #20 DJ (InTheMix Top 50), Vlahos lists performing mainstage at Summadayze, as well as playing shows at every other festival Melbourne has to offer, as his prized accomplishments, transferring his nightclub expertise into the sought after music festival scene.
His live show isn’t Vlahos’ only accolade, recently enjoying success producing dancefloor bombs such as ‘Keep Talking’ [Onelove] with Australian musical heavyweight Seany B. The record gained support from every corner of the country and nudged the top 10 Aria Club Chart. His more recent tracks ‘Chinese Whispers’ [OneLove] and 'What What' [Phethouse Records] are doing the rounds and encompassing Jamie’s signature sound.
Be sure not to miss Vlahos doing what he does best all around Australia this year.
The masked duo are known for their high energy, high impact shows blending anything from big room anthems to their own brand of Melbourne’s ‘electro bounce’ are the new kids on the electro block, but with artists like Chuckie, Global Deejays, Lazy Rich, Borgore, Hirshee, Bombs Away and more supporting their bass-heavy take on electro house, there’s no reason to doubt that they’re here to stay!

For someone who grew up listening to Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, Cake and the Barbie Pool Party Mixes, it is a surprise that 19 year old internationally renown producer Zac Waters is managed to make such huge waves in the Electro-House scene.
Since Zac Waters started producing two years ago, it has been full steam ahead for the Melbourne-born superstar. His first releases set the standard with Decimate peaking at #63 on the Beatport charts and Life & Death peaking at #10. Since then, every new production has not only sky-rocketed up the Beatport charts, but been released on globally recognised labels such as Onelove and Hype.
Zac Waters holds residencies at two of Melbourne's biggest club nights ANYWAY and BILLBOARD SATURDAY'S, and has established himself as a household name in the Melbourne club scene.
In addition to these colossal Melbourne residencies and his crazy weekly schedule, Zac has also already landed an international set at SILK in San Remo, Italy.
After listening to his ever-growing discography of original releases, you begin to quickly see that Waters is no ordinary talent. A producer who idolises Ummet Ozcan, Axwell and Armin Van Buuren, who has gained the support of some of the world's biggest DJ's and has an obvious knack for creating masterpieces - there is no questions as to why he is one of the most thrilling new talents to be emerging out of the Melbourne dance music scene.
This is just the beginning for Zac Waters. Watch this space.
