Keeping the heartbeat of the Sydney underground alive, Flexy Ferg is using his love of music to make space for all creatives while taking Australia by storm with his infectious energy behind the decks.
The nomadic DJ/producer explores a diverse selection - from acid bass lines to synth disco, Flexy Ferg curates sets and productions that reflect the dynamism of electronic music. Finding pure enjoyment in exposing his listeners to a range of sounds, he hopes to inspire music lovers to develop a love for a new genre.
Characterised by a fun-loving attitude and an affinity for instilling energy, Flexy Ferg also has a strong passion for fostering community. As one of the masterminds behind Mid Street, the event collective have quickly become a staple within the local dance scene through their powerhouse raves across the Sydney underground.
Horny house, toey techno & disco debauchery.
Beloved DJ/producer Flexy Ferg (real name Matthew Ferguson) is something of an enigma in the local dance scene, the Northern Beaches party lord making himself a constant and in-demand presence on any and all dance floors across Eora. Falling head over heels with music in early childhood and growing up alongside fellow Sydney producers, Human Movement and Blake.08, Fergy’s relationship with the sonic realm has constantly evolved throughout the years. It’s subsequently led to him developing his skills across multiple instruments all while refining his musical ear. It’s safe to say the years of honing were the perfect training for his inevitable voyage across the globe, taking him across countries and continents in a quest to find his sound. The result? A vibrant mix of ‘Horny House, Toey Techno and Disco Debauchery’, as put by the man himself, and judging by his recent sets at Lost Paradise, Daydreaming, Lost Sundays as well as a tour across Asia and Europe, it seems that very concoction is striking multiple chords with the masses.
Inspired by his time living abroad, Fergy’s artistry is a tapestry of the world’s cultures and flavours. Cambodia, Peru, Mexico, Australia and Vietnam, all of the above inform his musical palette in distinct and unique ways. However, it was his spiritual home of Mexico where he entered his final form, finally clasping his hands around his sound as well as the dancefloor values that inform his much-adored beacon of the underground, Mid Street.
Born in the harsh lockdowns that plagued Sydney during COVID, Mid Street has transcended the conventional limits of your standard underground party into a community hub for like-minded individuals from all backgrounds. Upholding the ethos of “Less DJ’s, more time,” Mid Street is a counter culture movement to the ‘short set’ epidemic that often plagues Australian parties and has quickly become a training ground of sorts not only for up and coming selectors, but for the next generation of dance lovers across Eora. It’s a rave that transforms baron industrial spaces into dancefloors rife with connection, ecstasy and love, and is easily Fergy’s biggest gift to the Eora dance scene (so far). Having already hosted the likes of Danni B, Human Movement and of course, Flexy himself, it’s become the ultimate destination for DJs looking to showcase the full extent of their talents, with Fergy himself explaining, “If you’re booked it’s because we back you and we want you to express yourself.”
Now, Fergy has funneled all of his wins, losses, revelations and growth into his new EP,
A Family Affair, which is out now via Sydney-based label Extra Spicy. Featuring three tracks including the highly requested IDs of ‘Dance With Me’ and ‘She’s Dangerous’, along with a remix of the former featuring Sydney rapper Maccca 747, it’s a cheeky insight into the fruits of Fergy’s labours, a sneak peak of the addictive soundscape he’s been hard at work creating the past two years. A vibrant explosion of acid, minimal and techno, the EP continues to show additional facets of the eclectic producer following previous releases such as ‘Bogota’, ‘We’re Stuck’ and his debut single, ‘Therapy’ and has been a staple in his recent shows across the nation.
He’s definitely a man of the moment right now, after a stacked national tour, along with shows across Europe and Asia. He's back!
