Syme Tollens

BIO : If there was ever a constant on the Australian underground music scene, the name Syme Tollens would arguably be one most spoken. With 20 years in a career which has seen him accrue an impressive resume, Syme has held residency with the most infamous Melbourne underground Clubs such as… Q Bar, Metro, Chevron, Palace, 161, Lounge and Abode. Teaming up with Australia’s leading underground event producer BluAfterGlow 12 years ago, Syme continues to be the primary resident for all their main productions such as the infamous SINthetic, N Tice, BLU, Secret Room and the New Years Eve parties including the Seven Deadly Sins and Rooms Of The Mansion series. All this adds to his already busy schedule of his weekly radio shows on Melbourne “KissFM” and running his DJ school which has seen well over 500 students successfully qualify with many now working in the Club scene. Taking pride on his belt are accomplishments as runner up in both the 2009 & 2010 prestigious “Pro Pioneer DJ Search” comp and subsequently the Championship in round 2 of the 2012 “TheSearchIsOn” Dj competition earning him a promotional tour to Ibiza, signing a contract with Entertainment Embassy and being invited to play the 2013 summer season at “Mijorn” (Ibiza)

My time at DJ Skills was a pleasure; I never had any experience of djing and was really apprehensive doing these lessons at first but Syme’s passion for djing and music made it an easy way for me to learn in a relaxed atmosphere straight away I felt comfortable. He gave me good structure of how to DJ and priceless insights into the DJ industry with his experience. I would recommend anybody who is keen to learn in a passionate atmosphere to have Syme as their teacher. During my time it made me realise how much more I want to learn and how much hard work I will have to do in the future to make it into this industry.

Syme Tollens and his Dj school was a great step up to improve my djing. His knowledge and experience was a massive help and would highly recommend him whether your just starting out or a semi established Dj looking to break into the club industry

DjSkills Melbourne was a huge stepping stone for me, when i first came to Syme i had no musical knowledge at all, 2 years after completing both the beginners and advanced courses, I am now a well established DJ and have moved onto the production side of electronic music where im in the middle of a degree in audio production at SAE institute.

It’s been a great experience learning under Syme. I felt extremely comfortable from the first lesson of the beginners to the last lesson of the advanced (where I made this recording). The Dj skills lesson structure makes it real easy for anyone to learn the art of Djing. Syme embraced my style of music and kept me on the right path to success.

When I first came to DjSkills aged 11yrs old I was basically blank and not sure where to start but after I finished the Beginner Dj course with Syme I couldn’t wait to get onto the Advanced Dj course and I haven’t stopped since. I’ve been Djing for 2 years now and have started my own mobile Dj business doing regular parties on Friday & Saturday nights.
