Although DJ Astro Black has always listened to and loved all styles of music, he has had a deep connection and love for reggae music since a young age. By the mid 90’s he was experimenting with producing. After releasing a handful of tracks and remixes under different names, he began to cement his reputation locally in LA as a talent force. His musical journey took him to London, where the music scene and accessibility to European hot spots were influential in his musical growth. Astro performed at various open mics, jams, and busking locations throughout London and Europe. He eventually took up residence in Australia, where he has been musically active every since.

He has played alongside some of the industry’s biggest names. His high energy sets as a rapper, singer, musician and DJ have secured him a solid reputation worldwide as a multi-faceted, crowd-pleasing act. Some of the artist that Astro Black has supported and toured with in his long list include: Bushman, Jah Mason, Lyrics Born, Arrested Development, Bone Thugs and Harmony, Lee Scratch Perry, Rae & Christian, Norman Jay, FreqNasty, Third World, GangStarr, Shaggy, Maxi Priest, Blue King Brown, Katchafire (tour support), Nucleya, Business Class Refugees, Gaudi and India's Reggae Rajahs to name a few.

Additionally, Astro has toured in the USA, Europe, United Kingdom, India, Australia, Israel, Japan and South Korea.

Astro has played international festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival, Seoul Music Fest, Goa Sunsplash, Global ISAI, Island Vibes, and other high-profile festivals.

When not on the road, on a stage, Astro can be heard on the airwaves, delivering his trademarked “Rebel Radio” show. He has been a presenter on SBS’s Alchemy Radio, Bondi FM, and 4K1G, where he presents a cutting-edge, hybrid mix of sounds collected from around the world during his travels.

In 2020 Astro, along with Melodican, formed Astro Melody Records. They quickly set about releasing songs on their imprint. The "Transfuser Riddim" project received global acclaim and was on numerous top 20 charts and playlists. This was followed up with Igniter Riddim, which also garnered lots of attention. It reached numerous territories, spreading good vibes along the way.

DJ Astro Black despite achieving levels of success – both critical and commercial – remains a genuinely humble, self-effacing individual. A globe-trotting DJ, who, rather than constantly following the trends or hype, prefers to let his music do the talking. Thankfully, his music more than does the talking – it speaks to people.
