ARIA DJ Of The Week: Johnny Trypas

October 8, 2018

Meet the Newcastle DJ.

Hailing from Newcastle in New South Wales, Johnny has been a weekly ARIA Club Chart contributor for close to ten years. You can catch Johnny spinning tracks on a weekly basis at The Greenroof Hotel in Newcastle, with monthly appearances at King Street Hotel, also in Newcastle.

Johnny was recently in Berlin for two weeks to seek out the best techno in the best clubs. "I was in Berlin last year and I was exposed to a sound I had never heard before. Some of the tracks I heard had this calm, minimal and metered progression." "The most prominent feature of the music was the striking and abundant use of reverbs and delays." " I was working on music before that trip and I have scrapped what I was creating to start over equipped with the aural skills I acquired on that trip".

Johnny also holds down a 14 year role with Australia's biggest physical music retailer JB Hi-Fi as a music coordinator. " I'm not a single format music consumer. Vinyl, CD and MP3 can all sound amazing. Of course vinyl has the best sound, but a great deal of the latest music hits the public as digital. "Embracing all formats helps the music industry thrive and supports artists on all fronts”.
