Steven North (aka DJ Forgone) recorded a DJ set on the 29th of May 2020. It is titled "Party of the Gods".
When one is in the middle of an emotional shit storm, it is the expression of power through the eMotion of sound. The body moves, the feet jump and the rhythm of dancing is what clears those funky, grumpy & bitchin emotions. This ritual has been passed down from ancient cultures and is known as The Party of the Gods...
May they help you by moving your body to the sounds of your DJ, Steven North.
The old DJ Profile
It all began as a hobby in the late 90’s: performing as a mobile DJ for weddings, school socials, functions, birthday parties and corporate events. In the course of time, this love of music gradually shifted towards becoming a passion, one that was put on hold for 11 years. It wasn’t until a worldly trip in 2010 that DJ Forgone turned his passion into a full-blown career. What started out as chasing a dream was now turning into reality.
Since November 2010 DJ Forgone has been living his dream: a native of Perth, Western Australia, he started his music career as resident DJ for a pub in Fremantle, getting guest spots in clubs and events around Perth and appearing at leading venues. Remaining active in the scenes, he has also been resident DJ & amp, in parallel to working as a music journalist for Empire of Perth, throwing down weekly podcasts every Friday to begin the weekend. These residencies include:
- InfinityFM (Bulgaria)
- Cuebase-fm.de (Germany)
- Empire of Perth (Australia)
- GMHs recordings (Australia)
- X-Centric radio (Bulgaria)
- PureLoveLive 92.9 FM (United Kingdom)
- 1nationunderhouse (Mexico
- RTRFM 92.1 FM (Perth)
- Has DJ'd for fashion shows, weddings, parties & corporate functions.
However, this is only the beginning. DJ forgone is unstoppable: in addition to his residencies, he is now also the owner of Forgone Productions, a small but growing artist management/event management enterprise, working as an agent for House Park Records in Rome, Italy. Under the motto “music and insanity go hand in hand”, Forgone Productions focuses on spreading the love of music worldwide!
The insatiable passion and evolving appreciation for music have thrown DJ Forgone into learning the realms of music production. The recent introduction of piano lessons has added a new element to his repertoire: he is not only mixing and producing electronic music but also composing music in various genres.
