CHÂU was raised on a strange musical diet of Vietnamese classical ballads and post-war interpretations of rock and disco. In this experimental wave of the 70s-90s, artists would blend electric guitars with 16-string zithers -- nailing power chords while singing of famine and heartbreak and the endless mountains, in Vietnamese dialects.
In his short span behind the decks, CHÂU has fielded a delicious variety of performances, highlights include an extensive tour of Burning Man 2019 on premiere Australian theme camps: Frothin' Weirdos, Priscilla Queen of the Doof, Wonky Queenslander, and Sacred Cow stages.
CHÂU lives at the doof, and has played at a little too many to remember, but his favourites are Earth Frequency, Jungle Love, Expression Sessions, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, and Elements. When he isn't running amok or behind the decks, CHÂU is the ears behind the Wonky Queenslander, and annoys Love Camp by hiding their cushions.

Paul Abad is a DJ, producer, festival and events director and music, arts and technology professional based out of Meanjin (Brisbane), Australia.
A key figure in Australia’s vibrant techno, electronic music and festival culture at large, Paul has been active out of his South-East Queensland base for more than 25 years. In that time, he has built his festival brand Earth Frequencyfrom a small, 300-person tree- planting doof to one of the country’s premiere conscious music, arts and lifestyle festivals with a plethora of associated events throughout the year; performed at countless festivals, clubs, parties and warehouses alongside the world’s most influential artists; and most importantly, helped build a vibrant and connected community around everything he is involved with.
Paul’s musical experiment began in the radical melting pot of Brisbane’s scene in the late nineties with the experimental sounds of glitch, IDM, EBM, music concrete and industrial. Playing his first DJ set in 1997, he quickly became involved in Queensland and Northern NSW’s fast-growing underground party culture, promoting a string of successful events before the birth of the now seminal Earth Frequency in 2005.
It was during these early days that he first found the taste for deep subby grooves, first inspired by digging through the back catalogues of Chain Reaction, Rhythm and Sound and other dub techno luminaries before unearthing the booming warehouse vibes of Richie Hawtin, Surgeon, Chris Liebing and Ben Sims. It wasn’t long before techno in all its forms was his main focus, with its pulsing kicks and bass, complex polyrhythms and sculptable sonics providing the perfect palate for Paul’s innovative approach to DJing.
After initially dabbling with a four-deck setup, Paul quickly embraced technology with a DJ/live hybrid approach via Ableton Live as early as 2004, allowing for more sophisticated and layered storytelling alongside long, smooth transitions spliced with original grooves, loops and effects. His current setup includes laptop with Ableton, effects and drum machine, underpinned by the analogue summing and creative possibilities of PLAYdifferently’s Model1 mixer.
The end result means Paul can effortlessly traverse through the different tones and moods of techno with both sonic consistency and ultimate flexibility, ensuring he has earned his place as one of Australian techno’s most experienced and dynamic DJs and live performers with his resume including premiere global festivals and events Rainbow Serpent (Melbourne), PURE (Brisbane), Eclipse2012 (Cairns), Dragon Dreaming (Canberra), Elements (Sunshine Coast), Freaks Of Nature (Germany) and many more.

Razah is originally from Porto Alegre/Brazil, based in Gold Coast/Australia for 9 years where he started his career as a Dj in 2016, and one of the main reasons for this big decision, was about to show his love for the music, since the early days as a kid listening to records with his dad and growing up with a background of rap/hip hop, reggae, heavy metal and other styles, he developed some good taste of quality music.
In 2005 everything changed when he attended his first rave, in the middle of a Psytrance scene back home, he got the attention for the dj straight away, and since then, he put in his mind to become one. So, in the beginning of his first steps, he was running some parties back in Sydney couple years ago, the old PVT Music and already in GC the Visionz, however he realised that running parties was not his thing, putting his focus only in the music, and so, creating his own Podcast called Z Cast, still on in these days releasing it once a month, creating special mixes and sharing smooth tunes from his favourite producers.
Resident at Elsewhere in Gold Coast for the past year, he has been improving his music in one of the best clubs in Australia. He also played in some festivals as Rabbit Eat Lettuce, and other labels as SASH and Eden QLD.
Razah is constantly growing a creative entity to break the new musical genres, his sound is adaptable to match the setting and time of the occasion. He’s known for his mix of propulsive Deep House and Melodic Techno, but there is always a room for groovy sounds. The unwavering determination to push boundaries with his sets and his creativity spans far beyond the music, challenging himself for new opportunities and always excited to show his music behind the decks.
