Well-known scene DJ David Hiscock died this morning (Saturday) in Sydney.
A disc jockey with more than 37 years of music experience, Hiscock was well-known on the scene having played at most venues in Melbourne and Sydney.
Hiscock has been a resident DJ at the Midnight Shift on Oxford St since 2004 and is an icon of the Melbourne scene, best known for DJ’ing at Pokeys nightclub in the late ’70s.
His set at this year’s Mardi Gras party was one of the most popular of the night, drawing wide congratulations on a majority of online forums.
Hiscock’s start in the music industry was influenced by the Melbourne scene of the 1970s. From that time onwards he developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of music that would be the envy of any young DJ.
Hiscock spent a massive 18 years as DJ at the popular Newtown Hotel and had a loyal following spanning all ages.
He was once quoted as saying his favourite theme song was Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive and said he would like to meet Bill Gates to -œthank him for all the money he quietly puts into AIDS charities.
Funeral on Monday May 4 at Xavier College, Bakers Road, Kew – service 1:30pm.
