Hydraulix is the alter ego of Damien Williams a 26-year-old DJ/Producer from Sydney, Australia. Damien’s obsession with music began at a young age growing up listening to hip hop, rap and punk rock but it wasn’t until he was 17 when he put everything he had into music and decided to become a DJ.
Since then he has experimented with many different genres but it wasn’t until two years ago when he became Hydraulix that he really cemented his love for bass music. Exploring the EDM musical atmosphere Damien mixes genres together into a set of pure entertainment, combining high energy with crowd-pleasing tunes. After seeing Hydraulix live it’s easy to see how he has become such a big name in the scene so quickly.
Quickly becoming a frequent addition to line-ups at Sydney’s best bass music clubs with residencies at The Wall (World Bar) and Chinese Laundry, as his production credits grew so did the demand for his DJ sets, playing all over Australia every weekend and 2014 has also seen a growing demand internationally with regular gigs outside of Australia.
You never know what to expect from Hydraulix’s versatile high-energy sets and what makes him such a pleasure to watch and hear. “Apart from moving between genres and styles, I try and include as many brand new and exclusive tunes, edits and VIP’s from myself and all the mates. You should be able to come to a show and hear a set that no one else can re-create.”
Over the years Hydraulix has received airplay from Triple J and BBC’s Radio 1, as well as support on his tunes from some of the biggest artists in Bass Music such as Bro Safari, UZ, Excision, Snails, Rico Tubbs, Alex Young, Party Favor and many more.
