ARIA DJ Of The Week: Ivan Gough

August 27, 2018

Meet the veteran Melbourne DJ/producer.

The term “legend” gets thrown around a lot, but with a career spanning 25 years in Australia, Ivan Gough has firmly cemented himself as a member of that group. With 16 ARIA club #1s, multiple platinum-selling records and a humble attitude, Ivan has become a respected DJ/producer amongst his peers. In fact, in the recent In The Mix Top 100 Australian dance tracks, Ivan had 5 songs in the chart.

Ivan began working in the early days with labels like MDS/DanceNet and Vicious Vinyl, helping establish the house music sound that would shape Melbourne's early days. He then spent a few years producing for underground progressive house label Zero Tolerance, working with artists such as Luke Chable, Andy Page, and Phil K. This was followed by his biggest success to date with Grant Smillie as TV Rock, going on to sell over a million copies of his music and touring all over the world.

More recently with L’Tric, Ivan has moved back into the deep house genre and is now writing and producing deep prog and techno with Melbourne artists like The Journey. As a DJ he continues to play gigs everywhere, and shows no signs of slowing down!
