DJ Man Lie
Man Lie started his DJ career in 2003 playing Trance at dance parties in Taiwan and Hong Kong and moved to Australia in 2006 to be with his current partner.
In 2009 he started DJing for Harbour City Bears firstly at The Flinders Hotel for Den Night, then Furry Fridays at the Oxford. Over the past 9 years he have DJed at many Harbour City Bears events including Chunky, Underbear, Bear Pit, Wet Fur and Bear Fridays at Kinselas. He is also a regular DJ at Trough Sydney and Thick N Juicy.
D1 music in the USA have released 4 of his remixes on their label, these include the Billboard hits ‘Get Up’ by Kimberley Davis and Taborah’s ‘Say I Love You’. My latest remix, Kimberley Davis’ ‘Twist of Love’ remained in the US Masspool DJ Association Top 50 chart for 5 weeks having peaked at Number 11.
He has an eclectic music style preferring to play a blend of non-commercial vocal house and Techno, the dirtier the better. Since 2010 he and his partner have also been responsible for the lighting and laser production at many Harbour City Bear events.
DJ Matt Effect
Matt has been a DJ for 13 years now, DJing for Harbour City Bears for over 10 years and many other Bear runs and Pride festivals all over.
Originally from Sydney, he now lives in San Diego California and provides a range of music from house, to tech and progressive music, but loves his vocals.
After Bear Essentials he will be heading to Dallas to spin BearDance for TBRU. He will also be heading back to San Francisco, a few cities in Canada, for his first time DJing in Boston, and planning his Europe debut also!
We are excited to have him play for us again!
