An avid music collector from a young age, Agolini’s first love with the 4/4 beat came after seeing Techno Don’s Dave Clark and Jeff Mills in 1999. He became a lover of all things techno, particularly of the Detroit origin; the dark industrial sound would be the core of Agolini’s collection for the next few years.

Agolini’s diverse introduction to the scene can be heard throughout his sets. He is as comfortable playing at 116bpm as he is at 126bpm, with his current inspiration coming from the likes of Lee Burridge, Attish, Viken Armen, Solomun and Hernán Cattáneo.
In early 2016 Agolini was invited to record a guest mix for Sound Fusion Radio’s ‘Kiltr Sessions’. Kiltr Sessions is a weekly show with listeners in over 150 countries, showcasing some of the finest underground artists from across the UK and Australia.

Since January 2017, Agolini has produced two shows a month, bringing in local talent to record their guest mixes. The show prides itself on offering complete artistic freedom to its guests.

A newcomer to the Sydney DJ scene, but a veteran of the Sydney clubbing circuit, Agolini has a deep understanding of the city’s culture and the abundant underground energy.
