// ABOUT WONGO //
Producer, DJ, label head, radio show host, former international breakdancer, full time funnyman… Gold Coast-bred party-starter Wongo is no one trick pony.
With a big few years under his belt, by now you’ve probably already cut shapes to Wongo tunes. His production CV includes originals like ‘Mars', 'Hollywood’, ‘Relax! and ‘Be 2 Be’ and releases on labels like Insomniac Records, plus DJ mixes for triple j and Skrillex’s Nest HQ. He’s even been tasked with crafting official remixes for Beyoncé no less than three times, as well as flipping folks like A-Trak, Confidence Man and Yolanda Be Cool.
What really drives everything Wongo does is his love for music and the community around him. Case in point is his fast-rising label Box of Cats, which he uses to support and shine a light on the producers he sees doing good things. Big tunes, big sets and big love – it’s all in a day’s work for dance music’s biggest multitasker.
