Dean Cherny

Booking / Enquiry

With his playful spirit and knack of feeding an insatiable audience, Dean Cherny has been seducing crowds from every corner of the globe for more than 18 years – from the packed beaches of Barcelona to the lush hill-tops of Bali, the thundering clubs of Ibiza to the frenetic shores of Mykonos.

Back in his beloved hometown of Melbourne, he is a stalwart in the House scene commanding the dance floors of our most notorious events – whether that means steering the 20,000 strong force of Summadayze revelers, or containing the heat at ultra-sexy private parties and launches, including the Myer Marquee at the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Melbourne Fashion Festival, Kylie Minogue’s album launch & John Farnham’s 50th birthday.

Sharing the decks with industry giants including Frankie Knuckles, Jeremy Healy, DJ Sneak, Boy George, Deep Dish and Basement Jaxx, Dean has played his part in engineering some of the biggest listed events on the scene, including Gatecrasher, Red Raw, Two Tribes, Slinky and Respect is Burning supporting Dimitri From Paris, Roger Sanchez and Derek Carter.

And where music meets fashion, Dean Cherny is at the centre. As Music Director for both Melbourne and Sydney Fashion Weeks (2000-2007), Melbourne Fashion Festival (2000-2009), Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (2000-2008) and Sydney Fashion Festival (2009), he works closely with the country’s top stylists to light up the runway and put the kick into the catwalk with handpicked tunes that leave the toughest crowds electrified and aching for more.

Dean is influencing a subtle shift in the minds of the masses too – with exclusive programming rights in more than 2,500 fashion retailers nationally. In fact, his enterprise Marketing Melodies is thriving after 19 years without serious rival from competition.

With a long-standing weekly spot on Melbourne’s KISSFM, Dean’s show ‘Dawn Service’ (formerly ‘Morning Glory’) has earned him a cult following and a strong position in the affection of Melbourne’s more discerning musical judges.

In 2004 Dean formed Dirty Laundry with JJ Styles, a 7 piece ‘hip-house music machine’, comprised of two DJ’s (Dean & JJ), vocalists Lee Lee & Pete ‘Hypes’, MC Matthew Charles, and various musicians. Their first mix CD, for Pacha (alongside Bodyrockers), was released in December 2006, while their first two singles Disco Infected & Hate Me went to No. 10 & No. 8 on the ARIA Club Chart respectively.

For the last 5 years Dirty Laundry has toured the country extensively playing to in excess of 8,000 people a month.
