Scratch The Surface For Dj Genius

Who: Craig Obey
Where: Fanny's
When: Saturday February 19, 2005

CRAIG OBEY has shared the bill with some of the biggest names in the dance music world.

ROGER SANCHEZ, FATBOY SLIM, DIMITRI FROM PARIS and BASEMENT JAXX are just a handful of the artists the Sydney-based DJ and producer has worked with over the past 15 years.

Obey will be in Newcastle at FANNY'S on Saturday night to pump out a blend of filtered house and electro-clash.

Mixing these styles with soulful and edgy vocals, wild scratches and swing grooves, Obey has upheld a reputation for filling dance floors at some of Sydney's biggest club events.

But he has extended himself much further than simply playing other people's tunes.

As a producer, Obey's first studio recordings, Feel The Vibe and Can't Escape The Funk , were released under the name CRAIG OBEY VS MARK MUNRO.

Since then his production skills have led him to collaborate with renowned artists and DJs such as STEVE `SILK' HURLEY, E-SMOOVE, CHANCE, ROB TISSERA and DISCO MONTEGO.

More recently Obey has created work under the name ELEKTRIK FORCE and released the singles coolin' @ the.bar and Hip- Ma-Tize-Me. The first has already been a hit in clubs and spent seven weeks in the top 10 of the ARIA club chart.

Doors open at 8.30pm on Saturday night.
