Paul “Fish” Fisher and Leigh “Sedz” Sedley form Cut Snake, the dynamic, Australian deep-beach house duo. As former surfers, Fish and Sedz infuse a carefree beachfront ambience with pounding bass and tech house influences. Although they’ve left professional surfing behind, they manage to share the mentality of enjoying life through keeping their sets goofy and lighthearted.

Mates since childhood, Cut Snake grew up on the Gold Coast of Australia; surfing professionally and competing against each other from the time they were 12. In this time, they developed the hilarious banter and incredible dynamic that is still prevalent in interviews and on stage. The guys got into dance music while they were touring the world for surf contests and quickly grew passionate about the underground scenes from each country they visited. With plenty of time waiting for waves, they fine-tuned their production skills from beachfront bungalows, giving their
music a fresh feel and their live show a vibe like no other.
Using curatorial skills shaped during his time at the Smithsonian, Will is resident DJ at several touring parties that encapsulate and pay tribute to musical eras and guilty pleasures: No Scrubs: 90’s Dance Party and Hot In Herre 2000’s Dance Party. The events have sold out the legendary 9:30 Club in DC 25 times since 2008 and now tour the East Coast. In addition to making and playing music, Will is founder and principal owner of U Street Music Hall, a music-focused venue that hosts top DJs and live bands. Named one of America’s top 10 dance clubs by Rolling Stone and best dance club in the region by the Washington Post, U Hall’s laid back environment with no dress code, 1,200 square foot cork-cushioned floor, award-winning sound system, and internationally recognized programming have made it an underground favorite since its 2010 opening.
Will is currently collaborating with several artists and planning new solo releases for 2016.
