Artist Profile 








Fracas a.k.a Nathan Hemsworth began djing goa/psy-trance around 1996. He began his career djing in the local forest areas, pubs and clubs, and beach parties on the north coast of NSW whilst studying audio production at Southern Cross University. Nathan moved back to Sydney in 2001 and has been on the production trail ever since. After meeting Michael Norris (Nobus) in 2003, MeleE was formed and they began gigging in late 2005. MeleE ceased playing together in 2006 but not after the provision of a track 'Get It Off' on the 'Blackout' compilation album release of the same year and since then Nathan has been focusing on his solo project, Fracas.

He has played solidly at a number of shows including the Regrowth Festival by Regen, Cairns Winter Solstice festival, Track 2 and Track 6 in the Aussie bush under the epp banner as well as the Borrowed Time album launch parties in both Sydney and Melbourne (in which the 'Pressure On' track was provided for) and a number of parties in and around Sydney including Canberras Dragon Dreaming Festival.

Providing tracks on the current 2012 epp compilations 'The Flip Side' (Agwa Saga) as well as 'Problem Child' (Dragon) compilation, the year was a big one for Nathan including his long awaited debut digital ep 'Bizarre Dimensions', released on the 12 June 2012. In addition, Fracas has provided a track (B Grade Rapper remix) on the 'Myriad Expressions' compilation focusing on morning psytrance styles, released in November, 2011 showing his diverse range of production skills. Original in style and 100% psychadelic, look out for a Fracas dosage to entertain your mind in 2014.......
