DJ Smiley

Born and bred in Adelaide, DJ Smiley (Andrew Peters) has been spinning tunes at pubs, clubs, festivals and functions for the last 25 years. Always a fan of quality funky tunes, his sets span the last six decades and take in everything from funk, groove, soul and hip hop to indie, rock, dance and house. Performing as both a party DJ playing the hits people want, and as a venue DJ dropping unique sounds to curious ears has given Smiley a broad insight into how to read a crowd.

But what sets Smiley apart from the many DJs in the industry, is his devotion to editing and remixes. Almost every tune he plays has been finessed in the studio beforehand in some way – shortened, lengthened, rearranged or elements added. Smiley does this to ensure a smooth flow and the best possible vibe overall.

Smiley specialises in playing venues such as Hotels and Bars, where a mix of styles, tempos and eras work best to appeal to a broad range of patrons. The fact that he has held numerous long-term residencies shows that he is able to do this well. Smiley prides himself on making natural progressions between genres and eras to create a fluid listening experience, rather than having sudden drops and scattergun selections ruin the mood.

Of course, you can also book Smiley to play a pure party set, and you’ll get a great mix of up-to-date Top 40, dance, R&B tracks and radio hits, along with plenty of retro favourites spanning the 60s-00s. Smiley has played numerous private functions and corporate events since 1994, and continues to do so today.
