MC Shureshock (real name Cameron James Brown) is a heavyweight of the Australian dance
culture, a triple-threat comprising talent, versatility and durability. Shureshock has crashed
the national sales charts and entertained hundreds and thousands of fans at home and
abroad. During his stellar career, Shureshock has joined forces with many of the globe's
finest DJs, from Carl Cox to Goldie. Originally from Brisbane, Shureshock honed his mic
talents on the city's vibrant rave circuit in the early part of the 1990s, initially performing
under the moniker MC NO3. He went on to form five-piece outfit Zephyr Timbre that quickly
built a national reputation with its blend of tight rhythms, sultry vocals and party-rocking
percussion. Darlings of the Triple J radio network, Zephyr Timbre secured spots on the Big
Day Out lineup and supported Jamiroquai on the U.K.outfit's 2002 Australian tour.
Breakbeat would re-assert itself as Shureshock's central musical focus. In the early 2000s,
he met with collaborator Kid Kenobi (Jesse Desenberg) who later was voted Australia's No. 1
DJ in the Technics InTheMix Top 50 for three straight years. By the middle of the 2000s, MC
Shureshock and Kid Kenobi were recognized as Australia's premier MC-DJ tandems.
Now based in Sydney, Shureshock is very much an in-demand vocalist and performer in the
international dance music community, working with the likes of Fatboy Slim, Stanton
Warriors, Krafty Kuts, Goldie, Andy C, Freq Nasty, The Crystal Method, Sub Focus, and DJ Q-
Shureshock’s busy itinerary has taken the star to indigenous communities in Far North
Queensland, where he contributed to a project that aims to preserve ancient languages and
dialects threatened with extinction through the use of music and dance.
