High Dosage Live
Live Act // Producer Biography

Who is High Dosage?

In August 2004 High Dosage was formed and in that same year their big room hard dance sound took the world by storm with their first release "Fightclub".

Heralded as a worldwide smash hit and given a main spot on the 2004 Hard Dance Music Awards CD/DVD compilation selling over 30,000 copies worldwide, they had clearly set the bar high from the outset.

Not ones to sit back and relax, their peak time productions continued to dominate the record bags of the worlds best with their next two releases; 'Religion' (Produced alongside DJ Jupe) and 'Witness' (Remixed by Prime Mover) both receiving Top 10 placement in the largest dance music magazine in the world "Mixmag". As if this wasn't enough Witness was then rated by the world's #1 female dj Lisa Lashes as one of her top 3 tracks of 2005.

Fast-forward to 2007 and High Dosage are now considered an international headlining act with main room slots at events ranging from Slinky to the Australian Dance Music Awards alongside TV Rock and Kid Kenobi.

Tom Cosm Live

Tom Cosm is currently one of the most exciting new names in live NZ electronica. Having recently toured the entire country alongside legendary duo Pitch Black Tom has become a household name among connoisseurs of quality electronic music.

From the Boom festival in Portugal to the Rainbow Serpent Festival in Australia Tom's unique take on music has gained him a solid following both in Australasia and abroad.

Making his debut at Nrgize, Tom Cosm will be blurring the lines between dirty electro, big room break beat and pumping progressive.
