MEET Fletcher, an emerging local DJ with some seriously talented tunes.

Resident DJ at Neverlands bar in Coolangatta, Cory Fletcher has been hitting the decks professionally for three years.

He's rocked shows such as Coachella in the states and has worked with top artists from Regurgitator to hip-hop star 360.

Fletcher said he loved DJ-ing and hoped he could do it forever.

"If I could keep doing this for the majority of my life I'd be a happy man," he said.

He said it all started because musical talent was in the family, and he'd always wanted to get involved.

However as he loved dance music he did it a little differently.

"I really wouldn't be where I am without Neverlands," he said.

Fletcher's next big set will be at Brisbane's Stereosonic festival on December 2.

Radio Metro hosts weekly show Fletcherland, which runs Wednesday nights and is gaining the Tweed kid more recognition then ever.

Fletcher's line "Say no to genre discrimination" hints at the diverse setlists that often feature in his performances.
