Main Room at The Beat Thursday Oct 8th, 2009.
2009 marks the 10 year anniversary of Nate's DJ Career...
... and after 18 months break, it marks his re-entry in to the industry... with a twist.
Nate has long been trying to incorporate a Christian element to his sets, with the dream that it was possible to one day see a Christian Night Club of sorts. The whole concept is an out of the box thought, but one Nate has found himself in a position to pursue and be a part of.
Generation Church on the Gold Coast has this very same dream. A dream to move outside the realm of traditional thinking and make bold movement in the community.
The thought that God cannot reach the current club scene is a misconception that must be challenged and proven wrong.
Nate is working together with the Basement (18 - 30 year old) section of the Church to bring this dream to life.
New Demo's Now Available
A new mix of old classics, MyBar style. A tribute to the DJ influence of Movin Marty Nichols.
A first in genre for Nate comprised of predominantly new electro tracks with a couple of classics.
This CD was mixed with the view of breaking back in to the industry with a current approach.
Due to a Management decision to move in the direction of Electro, WRECKERS is no longer playing Hard Dance/ Trance.
Unfortunately I'm no longer playing a resident set and am taking some much needed time to self.
Hopefully in the very near future I'll be back behind the decks with some fresh ideas and style.
Looking forward to seeing all my old regulars back out there somewhere.
KEEP AN EYE ON THIS SPACE FOR UPDATES.
RiverFire 2007 Went Off As One Of The Stand Out Saturday Nights Of The Year!
NEW DEMO CD RELEASED - RiverFire '07
Brisbane always lights up for the Saturday night of River Fire, and this year was no different. The atmosphere was hightened and everyone was out to party. I would rate this Saturday as one of the stand out nights of the year.
It's been exactly 12 months to the day since my last demo cd (RiverFire) was released, and to commemorate a brilliant evening and a shift in genre direction since my last demo, RiverFire '07, my new Demo is now available. Come see me at the club to get your copy or download for free from the link in my downloads section. -Nate Hand

DEMO CD PREVIOUSLY AVAILABLE
Recorded LIVE On The Night Of RiverFire In Wreckers
With a lot of change taking place in N8's daily life, he has restricted his sets to once a week, but freed up time to put specific focus on change in his style also.
"I've been DJing at the Beat now for 5 years, and every now and then, I feel it's time to start experimenting with new genres, new styles and take a little risk at trying to educate what I believe to be stagnating intersts in the dance scene"
"I really want to close out some remix ideas I've been tossing about for some time, but never finished. I'm going to take some time and put that little something extra in to my future sets to lead me away from the norm, and bring back that individual touch that's kept me around the club for as long as it has. It's time for a new intro, new remixes, new demos and a more complicated direction in my track selection."
