A true Techno ‘lifer’, Ranjit Nijjer is engaged in a never-ending pursuit of mastery over the artform of DJing that incorporates new technology as it occurs.
With 11 years as a working DJ in Melbourne, Ranjit Nijjer knows how to connect with a dance floor. His calling card is precise mixing, extended overlays, and the ability to get the ratio right between drive and funk. While Techno has been his true love, his passions extend to Tech-House, House, Minimal and Deep House. Whether it is deep, dark futuristic machine space funk, grinding sexy organic grooves, or straight up thumping party music; Ranjit tunes into his crowd making sure he gives them the party they demand.
As one of the founders of Technoir, one of Melbourne’s longest running underground techno nights at 11 years, Ranjit is also often seen playing for local nights such as Bunker, Instinct, Unstable Sounds, Machine and many more.
Ranjit is also part of a collaborative project with Melbourne DJ Qualé called ‘Wingman’, playing Techno over 8 channels using two 4-channel Traktor set-ups.
2014 saw Ranjit take over as co-host for the long-running weekly show Late Night Hype on Melbourne’s Kiss FM to see out its 10th year on the station. He has also been a guest on the station many times as well as making multiple appearances on Triple J.
