DOLLY has been getting some of the best dance floors in Australia shaking with his carefully curated collection of House & Techno.
His music collecting started from a very young age, and was heavily influenced by his parents and grandparents having been music collectors themselves with an outrageous vinyl collection of Disco, Blues, House, Jazz & Rock.
"I remember being a very young age and my mother would put recordings of RAGE & Countdown on the TV & I would watch them for hours. I remember buying my first Ministry of Sound in 2005, I was 10 years old and one of the first tracks on the Album was an Inaya Day Track... who knew 11 years later I would meet her, that album is the pinnacle of some of the best dance music ever recorded. I still play a majority of those songs in clubs today.When I was in junior school I would collect CD’s from all of my friends and use my own to make compilations for the school disco. 12 years later I'm playing in nightclubs.”
In March 2016 Troy’s friend Louise Hunt introduced him to a set of DJ decks and showed him the basics of beat matching. 2 months later he would play one of his first gigs at Melbourne's POOF DOOF at Chasers nightclub on Chapel Street, one of the biggest gay club nights in Australia.
That was just the beginning and since then he has performed at many other events & venues in Australia & Bali such as Beresford Sundays, OXFORD ART FACTORY, Motel Mexicola, DA MARIA, SUNDAY SERVICE, CLOSET, The Imperial Hotel Sydney, HEAPS GAY, BOYTHiNG, THE VINEYARD, LET THE PEOPLE DANCE, GiRLTHING & HOMOSOCIAL as well as private functions and underground warehouse parties.
TROY presents to you now his own event and creation “HOUZE” and hopes for it to grow and have likeminded DJ’s from all backgrounds, straight or LGBT come together to celebrate the amazing creation that is DANCE MUSIC.
In June 2016 Troy founded BOYTHiNG which is an inclusive QUEER event partnered and driven by long standing Queer Event Producers Mason Browne of (CLOSET+GAYTIMES) & Jacqui Cunningham of (GIRLTHING) which is hosted at the famous Imperial Hotel in Erskineville.
