Joyride – The Gentleman’s Trilogy Tour
An imposing figure on and off stage, Joyride has quickly established himself as one of Australia's most diverse musical talents. He has spread himself across various genres, using his expansive skill-set to fit seamlessly into each.
Joyride's party DJing has seen him secure residencies at some of Sydney's most renowned parties all whilst headlining club nights around the country. Beyond that, he has left muddied dance floors for dead at Splendour In The Grass, Parklife, Field Day, Good Vibrations, Peats Ridge Festival and Secret Garden, leading him to now hosting FBi Radio's hip hop show, The Drop.
Saying that the big marn has an involvement in the Australian Hip Hop scene would be an understatement. As a part of theOne Day Crew, he has been Spit Syndicate's tour DJ for the past 6 years, as well as collaborating with Horrorshow and drinking heavily withJackie Onassis. Beyond the crew, he has also worked with Hermitude, Drapht, Urthboy, Illy, Purpose and many more, singing on and writing for some of the biggest songs of the past few years.
Outside of the hip hop world, Joyride is the bass player in Sydney gothic-folk (I know...) band Winter People, touring expansively with them since the start of 2012 as they did headline tours around Australia, shows in the USA as well as a run of dates supporting Gossling.
If that isn't enough, in December '12 Joyride collaborated with Sticky Fingers keys player Crabbz on Make It Reindeer; a Christmas record that was feverishly spread across the internet by artists far more famous than them (see: Bag Raiders, Hilltop Hoods) and remixed by Drapht, as he put his own touch on White Christmas.
He describes himself as a "social media mogul and an enthusiastic amateur athlete who was once in a round with Kirk Pengilly and Wayne Carey- the only time I've ever drunk Vodka Sunrises".
