Aussie DJ, D6 will be celebrating the 100th episode of his podcast, Sleepless Nights tomorrow night at Transcend in Adelaide. We recently caught up with D6 to talk about this huge milestone in his career:

How does it feel to have reached 100 episodes of SN?
It feels awesome! When I first started mixing 4 years ago, I never thought that I would have my own podcast. I began mixing after being tired of listening to the long intros and 2-3 minute outro’s of most tracks whilst driving. A friend let me try mixing and compile my own CD…I was hooked from there! 4 years later and here I am.

What can people expect from the upcoming celebration event on March 6?
March 6 will be huge! I’m closing out the night with my 100th episode, playing all my favourite tracks since Episode 1 plus a whole lot of ID’s I’ve collected and kept secret until now. There will also be some of Adelaide’s finest local DJ’s showing their stuff! I have been looking forward to it for a long time and can’t wait!
