With nearly 15 years experience of playing a chief role in Melbourne’s underground techno scene, Ranjit Nijjer can lay claim to contributing to a few special moments in it’s history.
Since the early 2000s, Ranjit has remained a devotee to techno and electronic music. Now immersing himself in various areas of the techno scene, Ranjit has been able to formulate his own sound, drawing from different influences. Using a four-channel digital set-up, Ranjit combines loops, effects, field recordings, samples and complete pieces of music to connect with the dancefloor to give them the best possible experience.
Ranjit’s contribution to the scene spans beyond DJing, as one of the founders of Technoir, which has been running for over 14 years and stands as one of Melbourne’s longest running underground techno nights. Aside from Technoir, Ranjit is a regular guest at many clubs and events around town as well as performing at one of Australia’s premier music festivals, Rainbow Serpent Festival.
The last few years have seen Ranjit's focus shift to the studio, which has seen more and more of his original productions find their way into his DJ sets. His debut EP is slated for release in the near future and there's sure to be many more releases in his future.
