Title fight night! Two of Barsoma’s big room heavy hitters! Funky tech house to KO your work week! Therapy gets the gloves on…
Shannon L Marshall
Whether it is a low slung private party or the wicked expanse of the mainroom, few DJs approach the task of dancefloor chiropractics with more intensity than Shannon L. Marshall. For over a decade, Shannon has immersed himself in the club sound. With footings in early electronica, US deep and funky tech house, he has streamlined the sound with each presentation to the floor, maintaining a nocturnal longevity, though with an ever evolving creative take on cutting edge club rhythms. Constantly in search of the fresh and interesting perspective, Shannon is an incessant trawler for new music, whether it is in the dusty halls of the record retailer, or through close relationships with his network of worldwide producer specialists. Along with his private stash of people movers, he brings a soft caress to the mixer, oftentimes resulting though in mass panic through the crowd.
Preferring to shake it in the city’s larger sound systems, Shannon has long been a fixture in the major club circuit. Developing through an intense five year residency at Empire Hotel, and long term engagements with The Family and Therapy; his ability to adapt to different party scenarios have served to cement Shannon’s position as one of the city’s most reliable players.
Shannon’s talented and efficient ability to set up rooms has been called upon to support a diverse range of international visitors, both highlighting his own individual take on the sound whilst providing a respectful heat up for the guest. Derrick Carter, Sucker DJ’s, Ben Watt, Hipp-e, Iz & Diz, Chris Lake, Inland Knights, Chris Lum, Johnny Fiasco, Copyright, Serge Santiago, Justin Martin, Lawnchair Generals, Brett Johnson, Jim Baron (Crazy Penis), James Curd (Greenskeepers), Polefolder, Pound Boys, Da Sunlounge, Andy Caldwell, and John Larner have all been assisted by Shannon’s early treatment of the club, and has made for some memorable events.
A look inside Shannon’s bag suggests hints of techno, progressive and bumping house for late night underground parties. His enthusiasm, evident in every approach to the controls, combined with his academic experience in the field make for a solid DJ with a genuine ability to connect with the dancefloor.
Only relatively recently did Jeremy make the dash from just across the sea, and he’s been busy ever since he touched down, taking on only the finest dancefloors this fair city has to offer. Upfront and grinding, Broughton regularly drops on Therapy between engagements in Family’s mainroom, hitting the late night party people with big groovy tech house rollers, and efficiency at the controls focused solely on the frantic movement of people.
Originally from Wellington in New Zealand, Jeremy’s heavy rotation in the region’s clubs and underground parties helped to form deep and productive relationships with our island neighbour’s DJ and electronica elite, including forming his heavyweight ‘Loose Units’ outfit, and he was responsible for introducing to us former Therapist Tim Richards on his first forays into Australia.
His ground hugging, funky tech house is a popular choice for our Therapy sessions, and have often set up well focused dancefloor activity and rewarded patients with mad fits of muscle spasms and all sorts of incoherent hootin and hollerin. Control over the mixer and track selection with the floor firmly in mind, Jeremy consistently brings the big bags of boompty goodness to the club. The late night session is perfectly suited to Jeremy’s efficient and significant beats and so we again open our booth to another wicked Broughton throwdown.
