Back for yet another year of carnival carnage across the nation, Half Wild returns, touching down in seven of New Zealand’s most talked about locations.

Created to commemorate the origins of dance culture yet also the future of electronic music, Half Wild provides a fusion that brings together the original canivalesque nature of the dance scene, the true art of DJing and the technology that has brought them into the next decade.

Last year we lit the country alight with excitement at every stop, showcasing only the finest DJs from across the nation. This year is no different, as we continue to spread the goodness of dance music. Think Robin Hood - armed with veterans & pioneers of the NZ scene through to groundbreaking up and comers who test the limits of todays technology. Don’t expect to hear a specific genre, expect to hear our artists take you on a journey through their world of music, be it techno, progressive, breaks or anything in-between.

This is your opportunity to attend Half Wild in your town and to show your support for electronica by joining the necessary evolution of music and culture that will preserve its original foundations.

Sebastian Wild
“...Owning those decks with pure technical skills, you are forced into wondering what’s coming, despite the fact that you may already know the tracks! Unreal!” - Sean Tyas (World #45, DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, 2009)

At only 23 his sound is nearly 9 years in the making. Try to imagine fuzzing John Digweed with Carl Cox, then adding a hint of Adam Freeland, Christian Smith and the Symphony Orchestra, and you might come close to describing the style of widely influenced uplifting progressive & techno with a hint of breakbeat that will fly out in one of Sebastian’s signature sets.

His wealth of experience spans thousands of events around the country - from rocking international-scale festivals and events through to destroying local club dance floors. On the same line-up as artists like Carl Cox, Mark Knight, Nic Franciulli, High Contrast, Eddie Halliwell. past events include everything Pfrom Half Wild, Summerdayze, Gods Kitchen, Rhythm & Vines, Hed Kandi, Slinky, Our House, Chemistry, Club Luxury, Lagered, Oxygen, Southern Cross Music, Fevah, to name just a few.

Unlike many of today’s DJs, Sebastian challenges the boundaries of traditional DJing and pushes the limits of what can be done with today’s technology. His signature decks ’n’ efx sets include up-to four CDJs, the Pioneer EFX1000, Traktor Scratch Pro and midi controllers alongside the DJM mixer series to create diverse performances, incorporating everything from scratching and feedback looping to filtering and live editing.

From taking out first place in the house & trance category in Christchurch's 2008 DJ comp through to selling out his own events, there isn't much this 23 year old hasn't accomplished. Join him at Half Wild this spring on the next leg of his journey.
