Telefunken is Boffa and Cam, a rambunctious and music-mad pair playing up a storm on the turn-tables of Sydney and beyond.
With over 16 years combined DJ experience, the telefunken duo teamed up in 2005 after playing a gig together at the Slip Inn. They found their sounds were similar with a love for the deeper techy side of house. They found a natural groove with both their mixing and programming and above all were having a blast whilst still keeping the punters happy on the dance-floor.
After scoring their first residency on the Home Terrace, their deeper acid/tech sound has given them credibility whilst still rockin’ dance-floors across Sydney. Telefunken have since taken it out of Sydney to play at parties all over the world, San Francisco, Japan, Fiji, Nu Caledonia and closer to home in Melbourne, Brisbane, Noosa, Newcastle, Jindabyne, Wollongong and more.
Telefunken finished off 2006 on a high note by gaining Runner-Up Next Big Thing in the 3D Magazine awards. The boys then went on to rate #44 in the 2007 inthemix top 100 Australian DJ poll and secured sets at most of the major festivals across Sydney during 2007 including Playground Weekender, Ministry of Sound @ Home, the VIP Room at Future Music Festival (25,000 happy punters), We Love… Sounds, Earth Dance (32,000 people) and Pacha New Years Eve at Home Sydney. 2008 has seen much the same with the boys playing at most of the summer festivals with return appearances at Playground Weekender, Future Music Festival, We Love Sounds as well as up coming booking Magnetic Islands Full Moon Party (off Townsville) and Global Gathering, This November at the Hordern
Telefunken have been playing around all of Sydney’s most renowned club nights clubs with residencies at Beware the Cat and KINK as well as guests spots at parties like Minimal Fuss, the inthemix.com.au xmas party, Club Club @ Chinese Laundry, Sweet Chilli and so on.
To date, Telefunken have supported the likes Tiga, Teifschwarz, Dave Spoon, Jona, DJ T, Nic Fanciulli, James Zabiela, Audiofly, Jo Mills, Tocca Disco, Ben Watt, Clive Henry, Hipp-e, Spencer Parker, Joachim Gerraud, Mike Monday, Tayo, Deadmou5, James Lavelle (Uncle), Who Made Who, Sharam (Deep Dish) Trentemoler and many more
