Raised in chilly Tasmania, Christopher Benson, AKA ‘DJ KYMAERA’, traded the natural wilderness for the urban jungle of Melbourne in 1999. He discovered the pounding rhythms of Drum n Bass soon after, and that began his obsession with collecting vinyl and making electronic music.
He started playing at house parties, and a night called “Bass Art” a weekly DnB/Bass night at the underground establishment e55 in Melbourne’s CBD. This was a chance to showcase his love of a full spectrum of Drum n Bass, as well as Jungle, Ragga, Breakbeats, and less easier to define 140-170 bpm Electronica tunes.
He began the crew “Oscillate’, hosting DnB/Bass events in Melbourne supporting local talent and bringing back the ‘down to earth’ party vibes. What can you expect from an Oscillate affair? The answer is a diverse range of great music, and a room filled with Melbourne underground culture enthusiasts, good people.
He has also been making electronic music for several years, his first release was on Melbourne record label: Detrimental Audio. His production is somewhat unique, spanning different tempos, and influenced by Ambient and Dub Electronica. He is currently studying Graphic Design, and also contributes to the Melbourne music culture by creating print posters and digital content for some iconic Melbourne nights.
Christopher has an unbreakable passion for music, and is always trying to convey this love through his Dj sets and production. You can see him warming up the crowd on the decks, and also amongst the crowd appreciating the unique musical approach of other Melbourne DJs/Producers.
