Facebook Event


The Substance krew are a group of like minded party goers dedicated to bringing the freshest sounds to the Melbourne party scene. They endeavor to offer something fresh and different to their punters. Not adhering to current ’nightclub etiquette’, the Substance elite DJ krew showcase sounds from a plethora of different electronic genres and styles on any given event – giving their punters an orgasmic journey through the aural delights of EDM.

Substance don’t have to sell anything, the line up speaks for itself. A little bit of everything mixed in with a whole lot of fun. The formula to make the substance is simple. Start with concentrated breaks blended into Electro. Mix in a beaker of tech, a test tube of prog, a spatula full of minimal and a litmus test of trance and everything in between in what promises to be a fanatical night of auditory assault.

With a stellar line up of kick ass residents and a galaxy of local and Interstate special guests throughout the year Substance is guaranteed to bring you nothing more than a good time. So keep your eye’s on the look out and your ears to the ground as we lay down some serious sounds!


The Mixed Messages philosophy centers on cultivating new concepts in dance music culture and evolving current trends in the way that dance music is created, played and enjoyed. We acknowledge that any subculture has the ability to magnify human foible and virtue. Moreover, we seek to uphold the integrity of dance music culture by readily embracing the power that our industry has to make positive changes that extend to the wider community. We do this through the emphasizing a high-quality club product and rejecting the aspects of club culture that compromise the characteristically underground notion of being ‘all about the music’.

Our music policy steps outside the restriction of genre and defies the popular notion of playing only club anthems. Our DJs are encouraged to consider a Mixed Messages party as an opportunity to exhibit their art through structuring sets that could not be heard anywhere else. A Mixed Messages DJ reads the room and responds by taking everyone present on a journey of sound, infused with their own signature style which keeps people coming back weekend after weekend. The appeal for a DJ to play a Mixed Messages party has enabled us to secure the best DJs from each genre that is definitive of the Melbourne underground sound. We have an unrivaled artist roster for our regular nights and carefully tailor our touring line-ups to best suit the hosting venue.

A little info about....

Daniel Farley

Theres isnt much Daniel Farley hasnt done in his home country (The Home Of The Lord Of The Rings: New Zealand)when it comes to DJing. In just four short years he had forged his way from bright up and comer to one of the most talented & established names in the NZ scene.

This is perhaps earmarked in 2010 by being voted the 1 Electro-House DJ in New Zealand at the Nite:Life awards, the countries largest and most credible DJ awards.

But such an award doesnt describe full spectrum of Daniels sounds and influences, never one to pigeonhole himself into one genre, his upfront sound can range between in the early stages tropical-edged-tech to silky disco-tinged house, to finishing off a night on a more eclectic, driving and occasionally even chaotic tip. A true DJs DJ though, Daniel excels at reading the dancefloor and fitting his signature style best to his audiences pleasure, and playing with energy and finesse that is well beyond his years.

This diverse range of musical knowledge and taste has seen Daniel and warm up and warm down, for an enormous array of the worlds finest talent, supporting global superstars including Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, & Steve Angello to big-name party-starters like The Crookers, A-Trak , DJ Zinc to some of the coolest house producers of now such as Riva Starr, Bart B More & SOLO. In fact he has supported over 100 A-List internationals at festivals and events across NZ in his time behind the decks.

He has held down only the finest of residencies in his home of Auckland including a 3 year residency at the then-infamous CODE nightclub from 2006-2009, before being one of the driving forces behind new hotspot BE for the past 18 months, along with other top residents and promoters taking the club from humble beginnings at its openings to playing cutting-edge music to in excess of 1000s every weekend. In addition he has played at every other premium club across New Zealand worth mentioning, and played across the ditch at top venues such as Prince, Chinese Laundry, Tank, Family World, Monastery, & Soho to name a few. Festivals and dance parties? He has done them all in NZ including Summadayze , Rhythm & Vines , Future Music Festival, We Love Sounds , Godskitchen, Ministry Of Sound , Deep Hard N Funky, and many more.

His own productions and remixes have also started going from strength to strength and are gaining international acclaim. His original productions have been played from DJs as diverse as Doorly to Renaissance Man, bigupped by the likes of Steve Aoki and the Round Table Knights and his debut release Airbag was reviewed by the prestigious iDJ Magazine and rated 9/10 and a must have tune.

Also having collaborated with a range of top Australasian artists: Tom Piper, Danny T, Maya & Vanya, Chaos In The CBD, and Tim Corin under their Farley & Corin moniker, and remixed the likes of Kid Dub, Micky Slim, Magik Johnson, & Greg Churchill.

Already having releases on labels such as Vacation Records, UK's Dandy Kid, Miamis Vertical Lift, and his own new imprint Bakehaus Records with fellow Tom Piper, things are only looking up and up production wise with many more hot collaborations and remixes set to drop over the course of 2010.

All in all, this Kiwis name is on the up & up in every direction and has the goods to prove it, so though he may come from where the land where the hobbits happen to reside, dont underestimate - go see for yourself!
