Profile:
DJ Freestyle is a DJ, producer, mastering engineer, record digger/collector, and musician. With his brother Kay Jay, he also runs the record label Integrity Recordings out of Melbourne, Australia.

As a DJ, he has headlined in clubs, bars and radio shows throughout the world. Before focusing most of his energy on house music production, he built on his hip hop/turntablist background, working as an instructor for Technics and United DJ's Mixing Schools, teaching the art of old-school & new-school scratching, Harmonic Key mixing and production/engineering. In 2001, he placed 1st in the Scratching Division and 2nd in the Beat Juggling Category of The Technics Ultimate DJ Showdown. He also won several mixing competitions in his home state in the 1990s.

DJ Freestyle established a production facility, Funkshun Produkshuns, in January 1999, and through his international releases, became the first DJ/producer from the state of Queensland to impact the U.S. underground house music scene. His production accolades include a top-3 favourite producers mention by Mark Farina in BPM magazine (2005) and favourable record reviews in the magazines IDJ, MUZIK and DJ.

DJ Freestyle's influences come from his favourite styles of music: early 80's boogie, R&B, funk and disco; artists such as Midnight Star, The Whispers; early Jam and Lewis productions, Kashif Productions, Larry Levan and Francois Kevorkian productions, etc.; and labels such as Prelude, Solar, Tabu, West End, Capitol, Atlantic, SAM, Philly International, and Salsoul.
