With his incredible versatility and constant innovation, Technikal (Alf Bamford) is one of the most respected and successful producers in the hard dance world. Winner of both the 2010 and 2011 Hard Dance Awards coveted ‘Best UK Hard Producer’ title, he is viewed by his fans and peers as one of the very foundations of hard dance music today. Yet still, Technikal strives to push the boundaries of what is expected from a dance floor hit. Incorporating influences from far flung places whilst combining them with the conventional, he has created a unique and club destroying sound of his very own, and is responsible for some of the biggest hard dance records of recent years. With an amassing interest in dance music, Alf began dabbling in the world of music production at a very early age. He had his first record signed at the age of seventeen and has gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of records across the world. In his mid twenties now, it is fair to say that Alf has written more records and has experienced more success than most other music producers would in a life time. Having worked with some of the biggest and best names in the business such as Lisa Lashes, BK, Rob Tissera, Lost Witness, and many, many more it is fair to say that Alf’s production talents and ideas are some of the most sought after in the industry. Alf is also well recognized on the UK hardcore circuit under his Technikore project, being signed to the world’s most legendary UK hardcore label Raverbaby. Since 2005, Technikal has also established himself as an internationally performing DJ. Kicking off his DJ career at Heat’s Evolution Birthday event (The Fridge, London, UK) he has since been around the world numerous times, performing as far and wide as Australia, South Africa, North America, Sweden, Norway, The Netherlands, and many more. This goes hand in hand with having performed at the biggest and best festivals the world has to offer, including Dance Valley, Impulz, Global Gathering, Creamfields, Planet Love and many more. A favourite amongst the pages of high end music publications, Mixmag have given Technikal numerous full page features in the previous years, mentioning him in the same breath as artists such as Deadmau5, Sean Tyas and Chase & Status whilst also deeming him one of the ‘Best of 2008′. Supporting Technikal are locals Steve Hill, Yoshi, Micky D, The Lab Rats and Nathan Flexx. The middle level will be cranking once again with local talent featuring… Yev, JTS, FL!P, Gilly, Leon Allen and Aken. Headlining the Catch 23 floor is Rodman. Rodman didn’t get a chance to play at our last event due to the rain so now is the time Supporting Rodman are your Catch 23 Favourites, Torbynik, Raissa, Scruby and Mybye. Don’t miss your chance on joining Technikal and Sydney’s finest for another electrifying day on the harbour!
