bLikeMe – Bio


From a young age always intrigued with when the beat would change, bLikeMe has had music surging through his veins. Before he could count he was able to predict when songs would break from the verse / chorus / bridge etc. Not knowing at the time (pre-kindergarten) what these terms were called, his favorite solo game was, ‘predict the change’. By age 9 keyboard lessons were taken up. By age 11 guitar was on the menu. By age 15 a punk / metal band was formed with a very talented drummer / friend in his local town. Chasing his music dream through the teenage band until the age of 20, when the band members started dissipating. Shortly after the drummer-friend’s older brother acquired some Technique 1200’s and 600 mixer, this would ultimately be the beginning of DJ’ing for bLikeMe. Through DJ’ing came the knowledge of music production – A method of making music by one’s self – A one-man band, if you will.

Over time, eventually this lead to playing in most major clubs in Melbourne, also playing with some of Melbourne’s biggest underground event organisers and eventually holding residencies at some of these iconic Melbourne venues. When not studying, DJ’ing or sleeping bLikeMe was producing music with every spare minute.

In 2015 a few original songs were sent to a Chicago based Record Label and some interest was taken into his original tunes. The Record Label, wanting to release an EP as apposed to a single song, selected two of many songs laying dormant in the bLikeMe original-tunes catalogue. These are songs are yet to be released, but watch out for them around August 2016.

Currently bLikeMe is playing with Dark Beat and occasionally doing the odd guest slot at Mothers Milk (Chapel St) and producing in his home studio, as he has done for many years.

Keep your eye on this guy, his ultra adaptive music sense and experience tells us that we will be hearing a lot more from this one-man band known as, bLikeMe.

The show - Deep Down Under (DDU) is a Radio Show Production that airs on the first Friday of every month (11:30 - 1AM), hosted by Gee Mac & Victor Tango and delivers an assortment of freshly recorded live-mixes - mostly focused, but not limited to, the latest Deep-House releases. On top of showcasing the latest & greatest, the slick production duo also piece together regular, somewhat familiar sound bites and segments such as the infamous, 'Flashback Mini-Mix', 'Choon/Artist of the Week', 'Did somebody say Dominos' and arbitrary music-production themes/niche mixes ranging from, funky old-school, to classic bangers and long forgotten d-floor gems. It's a show run on heart, spirit and a hint of self-deprecating humour to lighten the production, while aiming to share with the world a little piece of what drives these music-obsessed hosts. The hosts - GeeMac: You can find this production guru's music on beatport under the former alias bLikeMe, and has been hosting DDU for over 4 years and is no stranger to the Melbourne nite-lyfe, having played in all major bars & clubs in and around the city. Victor Tango: This man has also been runnin'/spinnin' parties since the dayz of wax and is a truly wise, Yoda-like Wikipedia of record labels, musical compositions and anything remotely digital. Being a highly-demanded import from Auckland, New Zealand has made the move Down-Under to broaden his horizons and share with the world his incredible music knowledge & nounce of putting together seamless, emotionally-filled musical journeys. Luckily for us, now calling Melbourne his home away from home, definitely take the time to check out what this guy brings to the table(s)." You can head on over to the DDU soundcloud for the latest and legacy shows & track-listings here: Peace!
