SAUL BLISS – INFECTIOUS GROOVE

Both his DJ sets and recently his own productions have a coherent energy, an infectious groove being the key component causing the crowd to remain captivated, something he has picked up from many sunrises caught in the clubs of Ibiza, and time spent during the early hours in London nightclubs where he cut his dance floor teeth. His ability to mix eclectically is rooted from many years of DJing and holding down residencies in London, Ibiza and currently Australia and INDONESIA. Not one to take his foot off the pedal, showing no signs of slowing having helped set up Sydney based record label Beatfixed recordings with 3 self penned releases set to drop in 2017 plus holding down 4 weekly residencies and promoting parties as Solee Promotions and Kinky Malinki Australia. Having played London Super clubs and Ibiza hotspots this dj knows good music, whatever it’s sub-genre, his ability to read a crowd and tease them into submission, and the pure optimism of his ‘let’s get this party started’ attitude have all been central to the attention and respect he has attracted from the diverse range of DJs, producers and promoters that he has worked with over the years. Saul Bliss an all round lover of music, the rest can be denoted by virtue of listening and experiencing what he brings to the party for yourself. The last 20 years sharing beats worldwide have done nothing to quench his youthful thirst. Spurred on by the ever changing face of the dance floor he continues to evolve his career. ‘A true innovator, never an imitator’
