In 2006 as a 15 year old, Tim Fitzpatrick started off his career as a DJ playing on a old set of decks in his garage and doing mobile DJ gigs. With already 3 years experience playing the Saxophone, Tim had a firm grasp of music concepts and picked up the art of DJ'n quite quickly by listening to podcasts from Dave Spoon and Pete Tong on Radio One in the UK. Tim's first club gig came in 2009, playing in the front room of Seven nightclub on a Thursday after seeing a advertisement on Facebook looking for DJs in Year 12 at the time.

Although it went well, Tim did not play any other club gigs until he was on Schoolies, where he DJ'd at the Gold Coast leg of the Unlucky Thursdays Schoolies Tour. His set was a hit, and shortly after arriving back home was chosen to be a weekly resident at Unlucky Thursdays at Seven.

Into 2010, this young DJ is slowly rising up the ranks with his weekly residency continuing at Unlucky Thursdays at Seven, and now is also involved with After Dark Social Club at Roxanne Parlour. He has also developed his mobile DJ'n into a fully functional business, and is constantly trying to achieve a perfect balance between doing club DJ'n and mobile DJ'n. Tim has supported artists such as the Stafford Brothers, Ajax, Yolanda Be Cool, Tommy Trash, Chardy, Jamie Doom, Knightlife, Andy Murphy, Nick Foley, Kris Baha, and many more. Tim's mobile DJing background has allowed him to be open and flexbile with his DJ sets, from playing light, funky house to harder electronic music, to the big room sounds of Axwell and friends. As a DJ, he is constantly influenced by the works of Riva Starr, Round Table Knights, Renaissance Man, David Keno, Armand Van Helden, Avicii, Axwell, and Steve Angello.

In the future Tim would like to go into production, but for now alot is unknown for Tim so he is just enjoying his DJ'n and seeing how far it takes him. However one thing is for certain; bigger things are in store for this bright young DJ of the Melbourne dance music scene.
