Originating from very humble beginnings as a little known duo by the name of Shameless, Robyn has successfully launched her solo career earning her a spot among Melbourne’s finest Dj’s in many of Victoria’s premier clubs. Late 2006 to early 2007 saw Shameless dominate the local pub and club scene, with numerous residencies in Melbourne’s south east and along the Mornington Peninsula. Mid to late 2007 the pair began to take their music a little more seriously and launched themselves into the infamous club scene, starting with Loud promotions, and residencies at Hyde Bar and Circus Saturdays. They then competed in the Myplace “So you think you can Dj” competition at room680, sparking interest from switch Thursdays at Eve and what were then frenchkissed Saturdays at Room. Following this the Shameless guest spots and residencies snowballed with appearances at Syn bar, Taboo, 161, Alumbra, Avenue and Hotel Barkley, all the while being heavily involved with Moogie Entertainment.
In mid 2009 the Shameless duo parted ways and Robyn branched out on her own leaving the Shameless name behind. Since then she has continued playing for Loud promotions and has recently played for Lab 22, Bigdog Entertainment, Switch, and Mixed Messages. Her versatility allows her to play anything from deep house to banging techno and minimal, basing her sets on that signature Melbourne sound. 2010 has seen Robyn creep into the wide world of production and is currently collaborating with Tara Minton, who at the time of this writing, is sitting at number one on the triple j unearthed charts. This year she has held residencies at Rah Bar, Circus, Fantasia, Korova and Dashboard with guest spots at Wah Wah, Noizy, Baroq, Eve, Ladida, Tramp, Roxanne’s, Brown Alley, Cushion, Revolver, Motel and Qbar.
REVISED BIO BY PETER BIDSTRUP
Since 2006, as a solo artist and part of the notorious party duo SHAMELESS, Robyn Gold has gigged relentlessly, first in the south east and on the peninsula,, then venturing into some of Melbourne’s most prestigious renowned venues. Her 2009 split from Shameless marked a departure from a commercial sound towards one that is distinctly associated with the newfound residencies and guest spots at Melbourne techno institutions such as Wah Wah lounge, Brown Alley, Tramp and Revolver. Whilst also maintaining a presence in the mainstream scene, gigging regularly between Baroq, Eve, La di da, Cushion, Hotle Barkly and the notorious Q Bar, Robyn has proven it is possible to avoid being pidgeon-holed, as a this dj or that dj, supporting everyone from Daniel Steinberg and Claude Von Stroke to Kid Kenobi and Eric Laville. Between her studio collaborations with Tara Minton and Azmac, and gigs for Loud Promotions, Lab 22 and more recently Thick as Theives Robyn is at the top her game behind the decks, able to take on any set time at any venue in Melbourne. Shame about her head.
