As a teenager Dick Johnson landed a residency at Manchester’s legendary Hacienda Club where he honed his house sound until it’s closure in 1997. Before long he was producing tracks for Cream’s Olympic label, New Order’s Pleasure Recordings and Manchester’s Paper Recordings collective, and had set up his own record label Shaboom, which went on to do over 100 releases from the likes of Joeski, Fred Everything, Doc Martin and DJ Sneak.Prolific in the studio, he went on to do albums for Darren Emerson’s Underwater Label and Bristol house imprint NRK, as well as releases for Jesse Rose’s Made To Play/Play It Down, Southern Fried, Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records, Lazy Days, Soundway, MOS & Vicious.As well as his own solo productions, Dick has remixed international artists Fatboy Slim, Crookers, Claude Von Stroke, DJ Sneak, Ian Pooley, Worthy, Crazy P, Bassnectar, Fred Everything, The Human League as well as Kiwi artists L.A.B, Theia, The Naked & Famous and Tiki Taane to name a few.

On top of DJing and productions he’s part of three other acts: The first is the eight-piece band Weird Together with its own twist on world music. They have released EP’s through UK label Soundway, Jillionaire's (Major Lazer) Feel Up Records and recently signed with Sony Africa. The second project is MEDZ, a slower, more futuristic electronic project with releases on Melbourne label Vicious. The third is Clicks, a collaboration with Anna Coddington on vocals for house and disco tunes aimed at the dancefloor with releases on NZ label Loop and Aussie label Hot Sunday.

On top of all that Dick is also the Music Director for the sellout show SYNTHONY which is a breathtaking fusion of electronic dance music, live orchestra, DJs, vocalists, and immersive visuals.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand and with a long-standing (15 years) weekly show on local radio station George Fm, Dick continues a busy DJ schedule and it’s a rare weekend indeed that he is not behind the decks electrifying a crowd of dedicated followers and testing his tunes on dance floors around New Zealand and beyond.

This will be a show not to be missed!
