French master D-Sens to play final Far North Queensland show
D-Sens is heading home to Paris soon, but not before one last show in Cairns at The Lounge Bar.
French producer, DJ and BUS Records label boss Mat Delepau, aka D-Sens, has had a massive summer in Australia.
Kicking off his Aussie adventures on the Sky Stage at last year's epic Eclipse 2012 Festival at Palmer River in Far North Queensland last November, D-Sens has arguably been the busiest international touring DJ in Australia this festival season.
From headline slots at Subsonic Music Festival and Rainbow Serpent Festival, to rocking the Pirates Of The Underground Harbour Cruise in Sydney, For The Love beach parties in Melbourne and almost everything in between, the Paris-based house and techno wizard certainly looks like he's been enjoying himself.
But then again, what do you expect from one of Paris' most recognised and respected electronic music exports?
A graduate from the prestigious French music college EMC, Mat's journey into electronic music started with his trance-oriented project Lunaspice in the late '90s and hasn't stopped since.
One of the name's behind now-defunct French label Sub Machine, Mat is now head of his another of his own label imprints, BUS Records, which has a strong history of chart success including the prestigious Beatport No.1 in the progressive house category for D-Nox and Beckers' remix of NOP's Cubic Loop in 2008.
His own remixes and productions have also found their way on to some of the biggest and most respected labels in the business, including VP Records, BEEF, Baroque, Miniatures, Sprout and many more.
He has also just produced a series of new productions alongside highly popular New Zealand producer Opiuo.
Outside his own performances, Mat helps to organise Arcadia Festival in France (together with Aqua-Veda Productions), which is recognised as one of his country's best outdoor electronic music festivals.
With his last major show in Australia at Earth Frequency Festival near Brisbane next weekend, this Saturday night at The Lounge Bar is your final chance to catch D-Sens's wicked DJ skills in Far North Queensland before he jets home to France.
The intimate, backroom-style show also features an opening set by Byron Bay-based DJ Ketaswing, alongside Cairns' own FunkForm, Mony and Uzi, making for a big night of house and techno at The Lounge.
D-Sens (BUS Records) hits The Lounge on Saturday night, with doors open from 10pm. Entry is $10 early, $15 after midnight.
