D.J. MacIntyre's love for music is apparent as soon as he hits the decks to share his underground sound. As a dj, he is well known throughout the Santa Barbara art, festival, and club scenes for his versatility and excellent track selection, offering a sound ranging from deep, sleek, and sophisticated to tough, dark, driving, and euphoric. First exposed to electronic dance music while living in England in 1999, he has enjoyed digging for and collecting great underground tunes throughout the subsequent years.
As a producer, D.J. MacIntyre has come out of the shoot with a bang in the form of his debut artist album, Tandava. In the album one can hear elements from the house, techno, and trance families which have been influences over the years. Tandava is the ancient Indian term for Siva’s dance of destruction and regeneration, and it symbolizes the energy found in the tracks comprising the album.
In 2017 D.J. MacIntyre also took on the hat of record label founder, forming the boutique record label SLC-6 Music in order to release top quality tracks from those producers he interacts with as a dj.
D.J. MacIntyre has performed at numerous festivals, clubs, and parties close to home, as well as further afield. He has appeared multiple times at Burning Man, Lucidity Festival, and Summer Solstice Celebration Santa Barbara. His successful monthly party, Rancho Techno, celebrated its two year anniversary in May of 2017. In July 2016 he embarked on a Russian tour with dates at Moscow's Konstruktor and Siberia Club, as well as a booking at the Sunvibes Festival in Siberia. Other 2016 appearances included Burning Man Precompression in Oakland, CA, Trickster’s Playground, Underground Souls, and Pyrobar at Lucidity Festival, Fishbon NYE, SBCAST Grand Opening, and Red’s Closing Party.
Previous years have offered appearances at Burning Man: Carnival of Mirrors, Burning Man: Caravansary, Transcendence Festival, Slightly Darker at Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration, Lucidity Festival, SBLocalFest, Psyon Gatherings, Interplanetary Musik Radio, AMP24, as well as club nights at EOS, Reds, Carr Winery, and Blue Agave.
