Mixmaster was started during a winter snowboarding trip to Lake Tahoe, California, where Josh Stowers (Mixmaster's Founder) randomly purchased some turntables one day after being on the mountain. This led to DJing local parties and growing a record collection over the years, slowly growing in terms of DJ skill and size of events. This evolved into radio work back in NZ on stations like George FM, Base FM and 95bFM which then moved into the event, festival and wedding space. From here the team grew from a single DJ in 2013 to a huge team of professional DJs, covering all regions in NZ from Northland's beaches right down to Queenstown's amazing venues.
A huge accomplishment by the team in 2022, Mixmaster won the prestigious "Best DJ Company" award at the 2022 New Zealand Wedding Industry Awards at the illustrious Te Puia in Rotorua. Already finalists for the award in 2023, Mixmaster has truly become an Aotearoa wide brand, with our DJs all over the country every week entertaining crowds in all regions. Born out of a passion for music, fun and celebration: this is at the core of the business and what Mixmaster brings to every Wedding, Corporate Event or Celebration.
