Digital Mind

aaa

These talented 16 year old Perthians have come up with their own successful DJ company type thing. If you’re ever after decent party music- just contact these guys!! They have good dance-able song choices, smooth skills and and easy-going personalities =oD

How did you come up with the name?
There’s no big story behind it really. We just knew it had to be simple, represent what music we play & our style as well as being easy to remember. I just came about by playing around with words until Digital Mind was finally born!

Tell me a little about yourselves:
Well, Absolute’s real name is Simon Willsher, he’s 16 & born and bred in Melbourne. After that he moved around the globe, even living up in Canada, before settling down in Perth in 1998. Equipt’s real name is Jack Burton, he’s 16 as well and was born in Perth and has lived here ever since. We both used to go to the same primary school, but back then we didn’t know each other. It wasn’t until we hit high school that we met and started making music, influenced by hip hop, graffiti and the local happening’s.

What did you guys do before the group started?
About 10 months ago, Absolute was already playing gigs, and just getting Equipt into DJing. We both started off heading down the ‘battle dj’ kinda of path. We still cut & beat juggle from time to time and those skills really helped with the mixing and party side of Djing.

–Random questions–
What song have you been listening to most in the past few weeks?
To name just one would be impossible! We listen to TONNES of tracks every week. Just to name a few;

Tear The Club Up – Tittsworth
Infinity 2008 (Klaas Remix) – Guru Josh Project
Day ‘N’ Nite (Crookers Remix) – Kid Cudi
Bounce – MSTRKRFT (Feat. N.O.R.E)

What one materialistic thing can you not live without?
The MacBook 🙂

What important lesson have you learnt from being in a group?
Teamwork is king.

Does being in a music group help in picking up girls/boys?
It definitely does.

Has anything crazy or embarrassing ever happened during a set?
Hmmm… to name just one?? aha.. Well with everything these days in music being digital, there’s bound to always be some technical glitches. One party we played at, we we’re mixing two songs, and all of the sudden, the music cuts and this crazyily high pitched noise comes out of nowhere! It almost blew the speakers and definately left some people with their ears ringing. Luckily it stopped after a few seconds and the show went on.

Have a listen to the type of stuff they play and if it’s exactly what you’re after- all their details are available on MySpace.
Keep a look out for these guys- I’ll be putting up a mix from them in the near future! But for the meantime you can stream “Everybody’s Infinity” from their MySpace site.
