ARIA DJ Of The Week: Batchelo

July 31, 2017

Get to know the Brisbane DJ.

Greetings, from Batchelo. The Brisbane based DJ/Producer - and now an ARIA Club Chart contributor - whose easy-going and not-so-serious approach to the music industry is married perfectly alongside his musical background, love for all things music, and a deep dedication to his craft.

Over the last six years – Batchelo (Hayden Batchelor), has grown from being a fresh-faced music selector within the incubator that is the Brisbane scene, to become one of QLD’s most sought after DJs.

Having supported the likes of Eric Prydz, Adana Twins, Doorly, Atrak, UMEK, Digitalism and Jeremy Orlander, ‘Dad’ - as Batchelo is affectionately referred to by his peers - has developed his signature punchy, driving, and deep style in the company of some of the industry’s best.

Driven by a genuine desire to push his own boundaries as an artist, Batchelo’s full-range exposure to gigging has landed him on the line-ups of super-festivals such as Stereosonic and Future Music, as well as residencies at leading dance music venues such as Capulet, The Met, Oh Hello and Platinum.

From working as a booking agent and promoter for some of Australia’s leading events, to developing his production skills with upcoming releases sitting across the House spectrum, Batchelo has evidently immersed himself in every aspect of the industry. Quite simply, Batchelo just loves music. With wide ranging influences that traverse the space between the commercial and underground sphere’s, ’Dad’ is expected to serve up something fresh, and truly unique for everyone.
