Vinyl Addiction Leads To Career

Who: Tim Mcgee, D*steady, Jay*j, Kavon, Kato, Fuel And Chooos
Where: King Street Hotel
When: Saturday October 16, 2004

A PART-time job is usually represents a step forward for teenagers but when TIM MCGEE started working at a record store as a teenager, it spelled trouble.

``I started working in record stores when I was 14,'' McGee said.

``I developed a fairly unhealthy vinyl addiction, so I finally worked out a way to pay for the vinyl, by becoming a professional DJ.'' McGee, who counts US vinyl spinner DERRICK CARTER as a major influence, has since become one of Australia's most accomplished DJs.

In production, McGee has released two ALFRESCO SOIREE mix albums, the first a solo outing and the second, part of WOK INSTITUTE with friends DECLAN LEE and TONY GAMBALE. McGee is still heavily involved in production and has teamed with British breakbeat producer and DJ KLAUS ``HEAVYWEIGHT'' HILL to work on new original material under the CHAMELEONS moniker.

Their first planned release will be a remix of the DJ SNEAK record, Funky Rhythm , out next month.

McGee will appear at KING STREET HOTEL on Saturday night with D*STEADY, JAY*J, KAVON, KATO, FUEL and CHOOOS.
