When you start your DJ career by winning a couple of DMC mixing competitions you get noticed…but to still be around more than two decades later takes more than vinyl juggling skills…In the years since those Victorian DMC titles John Course has cemented himself as one of the leading personalities in Australian dance music culture.

As one of the founders of Vicious Recordings, the label that un-earthed Dirty South, Avicii, Madison Avenue, Sgt Slick, Angger Dimas, The Potbelleez and Vandalism, (just to name a few), John works as passionately as ever overseeing Vicious’ ever expanding business. Australia’s longest running dance music label is now a globally recognized dance music brand & includes a management arm in addition to the original Vicious label, the imprint Vicious Bitch (Electro sounds) & the latest addition Vicious Black (deeper underground sounds).

On a DJ front John has closed the huge New Years Day event Summadayz to over 20,000 people & played the New Year slot at Sensation in front of 40,000 plus! A resident of super club One Love from opening night until the last record played there, he has literally DJ’d too many gigs to mention. He still plays regularly across Australia & in party spots such as Koh Samui in Thailand & the Paradise Club in Mykonos.

From the skills learnt early in his career scratching and mixing vinyl, John’s technical prowess is still visible as he manipulates today’s digital sounds via a bank of CDJ’s. His musical taste is diverse and although most well known for his big room sets, he can often be found behind the decks at a dark little club dropping some wicked underground vibes or working his way through his extensive back catalogue. No matter the style, in the age of the bedroom and promoter DJ, John’s technical skills are only surpassed by his experience in programming the right music for the crowd in front of him. It is that trait alone that ensures he is still one of the most in demand DJs in the Australia.

One of Frankston’s greatest contributions to dance music is John Course, and in what appears to be wrapped in a hint of Oktoberfest.. John stops in for a spin and a hometown brew as part of ‘Beers & Beats’ on from 4pm Sunday October 12 at The Deck in Frankston.
