Corney… With over 20 years of mixing-up electronic music, lights and sound, there is not much Corney hasn’t done…a
Corney first discovered dance music in Byron Bay, early in the 90’s, as the outdoor Psy-Trance scene was starting to blossom … He was inspired by the energy and magic of the people, the environment where parties were held, & the accessibility to underground events, … he wanted to get involved.
Secret parties in the rain forests, beaches, the Epicenter warehouses & of course the legendary house parties at this time, in this gorgeous area of beauty in Northern NSW, inclusive of a great crew and help from his new mates he put on great full moon parties and started DJ-ing at the infamous full moon parties around Byron Bay.
Corney retuned home to Tasmania in the late 90’s… Along with an amazing crew of people, he created outdoor parties according to moon phases for the next 3 years.
In 2001 Corney bought Syrup Nightclub, Hobart’s alternative night life ‘institution’, which he ran for 15years whilst making Round Midnight his bar upstairs a bar for cutting edge dance music. All of the biggest names DJ’s in Australia and the world played at Round Midnight/PlanB over the years.
Corney not only ran the club but was one of it’s most popular resident DJ’s. With a love of all dance music Corney’s style is varied and he plays everything from Deep House, Psy trance and everything in between… with a real passion for anything Tech…..
He has supporting some of the biggest DJ’s in the world, Carl Cox, Green Velvet, Roger Sanchez, Ferry Corsten, Fedde Le Grande, TIESWARTZ, Thomas Schumacher, Moguai, Far Too Loud, Axwell, D-Nox, Ferry Corsten, Paul Woolford Hallucinogen, Infected Mushroom, Space Tribe ,GMS, Groove Terminator, Kid Kenobi, Mark Dynamix, John Course, Yolanda Be Cool, The Only, Bass Kleph, the Aston Shuffle, Pee Wee Ferris, Uberjak'd, Will Sparks, Tonight Only, Bexta, Nick Fish, Tom Piper
With Syrup and PlanB finishing up after a massive 16 year reign as Hobart’s number 1 spot for the best DJs in the world, Corney has started running his own pop up Secret Parties, Secret Sounds Of The Underground. Although still in their infancy after 2 years, these parties are becoming a stable on the Hobart circuit. With amazing local talent and some guests from Interstate and Overseas dropping by to play some killer sets to an appreciative underground crowd.
Corney not only plays at these but does it all from running the sound, helping with décor, theme, lighting and marketing.
He is one person in the Australian dance scene that never stops.
With a big smile and a positive vibe Corney always brings an energetic set to any dance floor.
