The next wave of hot Aussie DJs feature in this new, original and exciting dance music show on Novanation. Sunday 9pm 16/09/12

This 23 year old, has fast established himself as a consistent performer amongst the Melbourne music circuit. His ability to play the right tracks at the right time has enabled him to be a versatile DJ with the ability to please a vast array of crowds. Mic Garas was first exposed to music at age 10 when he picked up his first set of drum sticks, however throughout the early to mid 2000’s, Garas’ interest gradually shifted towards House music. His earliest influences include the likes of Booka Shade, Claude Von Stroke, Oliver Huntemann, Stephan Bodzin and Switch. Closer to home, Garas loves catching local artists such as Spacey Space, Boogs, Orkestrated, Sunshine, Nick Coleman, Silversix and T-Rek. Recently, Garas is in his element when playing Deep House, Minimal and pretty much anything with a simple driving bassline. Garas has featured all over Melbourne’s clubs over the years including Brown Alley, Billboards, Wah Wah, Roxanne Parlour, Eve, Bond Bar, Motel, The Wheelers and Room to name a few. Furthermore, he has an uncanny knack for being able to hunt down the rare gems of yesteryear and creating a seamless flow with many of the current tracks on offer today. What he strives for in any performance is to offer the crowd something different to the any DJ before or after him. This has resulted in the creation of several bootlegs, edits and remixes that combine something we all know with a taste of something we don’t. Basically, Garas prides himself on the simple philosophy of respecting your set time, so the crowd and accompanying line-up don’t get burnt out. Therefore, Garas’ track selection in any set is a compliment to his knowledge and education on a wide array of genres. Currently, you can catch him on rotation at the iconic Revolver on Thursday nights, Hidden Forrest on Friday’s and NightCrawler Saturday’s at Levels nightclub.
