DJ RSK

Rupert Keiller aka DJ RSK is a DJ, music writer, singer, performer and electronic music producer based out of British Columbia, Canada. He began DJing in Australia in 1993 under the moniker Dr Roopa after returning from London with a bag full of 12” trance vinyl, playing various clubs and many house parties around Melbourne. Though it wasn’t until moving to British Columbia 2 years ago that his passion for spinning really took hold. Rupert now plays his style of breakbeat, electro punk and indie electronica in various clubs and venues in BC. Most of Rupert’s career in the Australian electronic music industry was spent with outfit Sonicanimation. His 11 year career as singer, writer, producer and performer with the band saw them win awards for BEST LIVE ACT and BEST VIDEO at Australia’s DANCE MUSIC AWARDS, as well as be nominated for two ARIA’s. They released five albums including the gold selling Orchid for the Afterworld as well as numerous EPs and 12-inch singles. The track Love Lies Bleeding launched them into the eyes and ears of an unsuspecting Australian audience in 1999 and their follow up single Theophilus Thistler choked the national airwaves in 2000.

They also did remixes for KYLIE MINOGUE and AMIEL, and worked with top-notch Australian producer JOSH ABRAHAMS. Rupert’s reputation as an energetic and frenetic front man combined with the bands live notability saw Sonicanimation play the BIG DAY OUT nationally five times. They supported THE PRODIGY, CHEMICAL BROTHERS, THE CRYSTAL METHOD, BASEMENT JAXX, UNDERWORLD and FAT BOY SLIM. They played countless dance parties including MINISTRY OF SOUND and HARDWARE. Their fame was fuelled in part by the gigantic furry creatures (the ‘Technotubbies’ named Robert Rollie and Theophilus Thistler) that originally featured in their video for Theophilus Thistler. This year Rupert has begun work on a new album for sonicanimation. Working again with Adrian Cartwright the guys have new songs with a couple of killer remixes planned. Watch for it to drop in 2013. In the meantime you can check out DJ RSK touring BC, Canada and Australia this December and January.
