After placing third in the 2018 Victorian DMC Championships, DJ N.A.T is one of ten finalists in the 2020 Australian DMC DJ Championships.

What does it mean to be a finalist in the 2020 Australian DMC DJ Championships?
A decade of turntablism journey.

The creative and practical aspects of your championship video set; how's it all coming together?
By locking myself in the room, not seeing other championship sets, and focusing on who I am and love myself mostly importantly: being humble.

The reason why I don't check other's sets is, I'd like to build up my own identity, not by following what others already have made, and focusing on what sounds and melodies came across in my head within the original track, and most importantly: audible.

Describe your championship video set in six words?
Nan Artist Turntablism :)

How many hours/ days have you put aside to practice your routine; and biggest sacrifice you’ve had to make to maintain that focus?
Five to nine hours at the start for a decade, then reduced to one, two hours recently to do the art that has not been done for a decade.

Who has been the biggest influence re: your own scratching techniques?
DJ Son. Simply by meeting him in 2006, chanced my entire life; still, he is my biggest influence and biggest mentor.

When you're not home practising your turntable skills, where can we find you DJing when COVID allows it?
I am still a bedroom turntablist. I will be uploading more turntablism routines on YouTube and Instagram. So mostly over the net.

Don't get ahead of yourself; from the other finalists, who’s your pick to be crowned Australian champion?
1: WallZee (very talented beast with no fear). 2: Max Best (musical genius). 3: Jewlz (this young fella made second in Victoria 2019 just one year after he started).

You're at a party and someone asks what exactly turntablism is, how do you respond?
The 10,000 hours of depression, sacrifice and give up, and repeat. Then "check my YouTube (Nan Artist Turntablism)".
