Electronic Music Australia ep.53 aired 4 April 2023
Producers, Arian and Shy, aka BOHM came to the rescue with an incredible bonus guest mix while I was down and out with the rona again! So please forgive my highly snuffly voice as I introduce the mix. Out of Sydney, BOHM used to be known as SMTNG & SMTNG before a recent reimaginging to BOHM which reflects the technical and the emotional elements of their music.
The pair are known for energetic melodic house, techno, tech house and progressive sets. We're blessed with this exclusive mix for EMA, which includes their latest release 'Reaching Out' as well as some sneaky unreleased numbers which you will love. A big thanks again to BOHM for this lovely mix and make sure you follow BOHM on socials below.

The weekend saw us head in to Brisbane (Meanjin) for Olympic Pool Maintenance League (Mord, Postdynamic, Diffuse Reality) Empathy EP release event. This was a great night of ambient and hypnotic electronic music in a reconfigured photographic studio at KEPK Art Space, Yeerongpilly. The space was dimly lit with candles, there were no lasers or screens or other distractions. This allowed us to fully experience the music and truly dance like no-one was watching! You can grab a copy of the 'Empathy' EP here.
I'm frothing for this weekends activities. The wonderful team at Lab Leaked Beats are hosting their April instalment with a stellar lineup headlined by Phil Smart. If you don't know Phil, he's been a household name in the Australian electronic music scene for some 30 years. He is well known for his cutting-edge electronic music sets and has organised some of Sydney and other cities' most illustrious parties and events. He was Australian DJ Of The Year at the 2000 National Dance Music Awards and was selected twice for DJ Magazine's esteemed list of the Top 100 DJs in the world. The last time I saw Phil was during my recent visit to Sydney at Club 77 for his 'Tempo Comodo' event series which explores dance music of 70bpm downtempo to midtempo chug up to 120bpm - incredible! Supporting Phil, Damo Cox and one of the masterminds behind Lab Leaked Beats, Mirus AKA Glenn Anthony, AKA Petrichor Project AKA a man of many names (and talents!) and NADIRU. If you can get down to the wonderful Northern Rivers this weekend, I highly recommend it. Event and tickets here. On Sunday, Israeli heavyweight duo Infected Mushroom are visiting our Gold Coast institution elsewhere for what is undoubtably going to be an incredibly energised, trademark Infected Mushroom set. I'm going to need to hit the Berocca's pretty hard this weekend but I can' wait.
In tonight's episode of EMA, we're going to be having an album listening party together for something new and different. So tune in to 105.7 Radio Metro from 11 and we'll listen to a brand new dance album that has just come out and see what we think!
Catch you then!
