DJ Flagrant

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Australian born / US raised Nate Flagrant began the pursuit of his hip hop career in the early 90’s after seeing DMC competitor Alejan meticulously scratch and blend records at a rave in Nashville, Tennessee.  Starting out on a single Sony turntable, Flagrant spent many sleepless nights perfecting his sound to replicate the DMC flavor that had influenced him.

After returning to his hometown of Melbourne in 1999, it wasn’t long before Flagrant’s name became synonymous within Australia's Hip-Hop music scene.  Having not only DJ’d all over the world supporting artists such as Wu Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Jurassic 5, Lyrics Born, Busta Rhymes, DJ Shadow, Method Man & Redman, Mark Ronson, Black Eyed Peas, Kanye West and DJ Premier, he also put work in both the battle scene and club circuit, competing in the DMC (and placing second in the Team Category of the 2003 DMC National Finals) and bringing the I.T.F. World DJ Battle back to Australia in 2004.
