Barry first found music when he borrowed his sister's record collection when he was about eight and was hooked. When Caroline started it was a new beginning, and he listened to all the stations, but Caroline was his favourite by far. Later he became a singer in a band, then started doing discos when he was 18.

Melbourne-born & bred, DJ Magnus clearly communicates an infectious passion for music through the decks. If you missed his debut gig at Cairns Tropical Pride in 2007, he may well have had you sweating it out at... Big Gay Day (Brisbane), I Remember House (Sydney / Melbs), Midsumma T-Dance (Melbourne), CoastOut (Coffs Harbour), ChillOut (Daylesford), Christchurch Pride (NZ), Rebel Bar (Melbs / Sydney), Broken Heel Festival (Broken Hill), Geelong Rainbow Festival, Tropical Fruits Festival (Lismore), or... Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras AfterParty. His signature sound of uplifting vocal House and an instinct for reading a crowd whilst delivering goosebumps on the dance floor have earned him a respected place as one of Australia's finest House music DJs. However, he also shows fantastic versatility & diversity by playing Deep House and Trance for his fans. He's held residencies all over Australia, including... The Wickham / White Wolf (Brisbane), Daywash / Hot Kandi / ARQ / The Colombian (Sydney), Rock City / Sircuit / The GH / Sundaylicious and Viper Room (Melbourne), and Flamingos (Hobart). DJ Magnus has also supported many local & International acts including Heather Small (M People), Paul Mac, Kelly Rowland, Wynter Gordon & played alongside DJs Seamus Haji, eSQUIRE, Jolyon Petch, Dani Toro & Wayne G to name a few. His online mixsets consistently rank in the Vocal House Top 20 on Podomatic.com, including holding the #1 position several times, and his collaboration on the music project "Bootleg House" in 2014 spawned him an online hit with their "Gold Life" cover-mash, both locally & internationally! 2017: on Australia Day he hosted his very first fundraising event for Black Dog Institute (raising $8K), launched a successful weekly Sunday Session called "SHAG" with well-known Melbourne DJ, Queen Martine, and joined a brand new LGBTQIA Superclub called "PLAY Fridays" as resident DJ & Musical Director. 2018: soared to new heights with his very first "AURAL" Trance event on NYD, with a follow-up series of parties, plus their new "FunHouse" events (Melbs, Hobart, Lismore), collaborating on both of these with fellow Melbourne DJ Damien Mack. But the real highlight of his career so far, was his 2018 signing to boutique studio Melodic Music, owned by Australian music guru Molly Meldrum, as a singer/songwriter, producer & remixer. He wrote, sung, co-produced, and officially released his original debut single "Until I..." on iTunes on Thursday 29th November, followed shortly by two official remixes. 2019: debuted at the 30th anniversary of the Tropical Fruits Festival, added four LIVE performances of "Until I..." included opening the Midsumma T-Dance in front of an estimated crowd of over 100,000 people! 2020: opened the Pool Party for Tropical Fruits on NYD, is excited to be providing the music for the Colours of Our Community float in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, and after the recent passing of his mother, he's relocating to Lismore to be involved with the Tropical Fruits committee... But make no mistake, DJ Magnus has his sights set on spreading his tunes and passion for making music/people dance, so watch this space... Peace, love & tunes!
