Australian-born, formerly Berlin-based Deepchild (aka Rick Bull) maintains a fierce reputation as one of the Antipodes’ great sons of techno.
From his 2007 Berlin debut at the city’s legendary Berghain/Panoramabar (the first of many performances there), to commanding thousands at EXIT Festival, Detroit Electronic Music Festival and more, a stunning international reputation precedes him. Tenacious, muscular DJ-ing and live performances are fortified by an expansive catalogue of releases and remixes on labels as diverse as Get Physical Music, BBE, Sleaze, Leisure System and Future Classic.
Deepchild is also one half of the Juno Award Nominated duo, Concubine, adding to several previous dance music awards and nominations of his own. You’ll find a substantial amount of Deepchild material available for free download via Soundcloud, and even more available via Beatport.
In addition to acclaimed solo work and award nominations, Rick has has previously been extensively commissioned by companies like Sample Magic to create some of their best-selling and critically lauded sample and loop packs. Press coverage for Deepchild work ranges from television interviews on SBS TV, to reviews and features ranging from DJMagazine to Wire and beyond.
A “DJ’s DJ” with over 20 years of club, broadcast, composition and critical-discourse experience, Rick’s investment in electronic music is deeply rooted.
