CELLAR STAGE | 29th DEC
Cam Harris, DJ/Producer/Promoter from down under, Aotearoa aka the land of the long white cloud, NZ. In January 2013 Mixmag called him a 90's houser, His remix work with Greg Churchill and Gung Ho! Records said he takes his production down a path of all proper house.
Besides what these guys have to say he's been a valued part of Auckland's thriving DJ circuit for over 15 years now, starting in the early 90's, he has earned the respect of the Auckland’s underground club scene and party goers, even his mum says his carefully selected House grooves dominate dance floors (True Story).
Cam's own production is riddled with grooves, big hats, dominate kicks, with elements of Funk, Hip Hop, Techno and Jacking, showing definite traces of classic 90's House heritage to form his own modern unique sound, sure to kick start any good gathering. Cam has signed his creations on with labels such as House 4 Life Records, Cabbie Hat Recordings, Huhu Music, Freshart Music, Gram-O-Phonique Muzik, Tinnie House Records, Arrivals Recordings and Deep and Under Records, M5, as well as releasing a full length debut electronica/techno/deep house album alongside long time producer friend Rafa Kao in 2017 called ‘Gratitude’ .
Cam's mixing record goes back to the turn of the millennium where he learned to mix with good friends picking up the skills using turntables and playing at events around this time with a few guest slots on UPFM & George FM, played at the legendary Space bar & Chemistry. Cam also hosted a show on Housemusicradio.com right before Angie Stones show for 2 years. Around this same time he played in support of artists like Minuit & Antiform at a sold out show at Auckland Universities legendary Shadow bar.
