Check out the talent playing at Urge Bar on Friday 17 August! Woof!

His name is DJ Kam Shafaati and he’s on the cusp of international stardom. Head to Urge and feast your ears and eyes before he takes the world by storm!

Kam says he is expecting a very lively New Zealand audience for his debut here, first in Auckland then at Christchurch’s Dux Live the following night.

“I’m expecting both gigs to be very busy, very friendly and memorable nights of dancing,” he says. “I can already tell that the energy will be incredible from all the messages and comments that have come through!”

Already a widely known DJ in Australia, it’s the recent announcement that he will be one of the headline acts at San Francisco’s uber-party Real Bad, which has catapulted him into the international gaze.

The event acts as a charity fundraiser and has donated over $1.5million to GLBT causes. Kam says it is a true honour to be picked.

“Each year the Real Bad DJ selection committee invites respected and well-known DJs from around the world to submit a demo. The two successful DJs selected have the privilege to play a nine-hour set and to create a complete musical journey for over 2000 men and women celebrating the end of Folsom Street Fair weekend.”

Since starting DJing back in 2009 with a residency at the iconic Laird Hotel in Melbourne, Kam has built a fearless reputation with two stints at Mardi Gras in Sydney, as well as gigs at Chunky (Sydney), Tropical Fruits, and Midsumma T-Dance (Melbourne) to name just a few.

His Liquid Logic podcast ( now has over 10,000 listeners a month.

Both the gigs in Auckland and Christchurch are $10 each with tickets available on the night only.

    I met Kam when he spun in San Francisco during Folsom Weekend 2010 , when he was selected as a front-room DJ for the internationally renowned Bearracuda. Coincidentally, that was the same weekend I was blessed with the main room spot for Real Bad. He made quite the impression on us then, and his growing success is well-earned. I’m thrilled to see him this September in San Francisco. I wish I could be there to support in New Zealand. xoxo -Sean Mac
