Tropic Dreaming - Dance Beats and Eclectic Electronic Sounds

Updated: Jun 7, 2023

Electronic Music Australia ep.58 & 59 aired 16 & 23 May 2023

If you've been caught in the whirlwind of life's craziness lately, you're not alone! It seems that everyone I talk to is going full tilt. I genuinely hope that you can find some moments to unwind and maybe even take some time out to enjoy these two fantastic episodes of Electronic Music Australia.

While I'm here moaning about how busy I am, I did just take a couple of very precious days to "unplug" on Magnetic Island, which is just off the coast of Townsville in North Queensland where I had to go for work purposes. While I didn't see any, I learned that Magnetic Island is inhabited by around 800 Koalas. Interestingly, they were introduced by humans in the 1930's for conservation reasons. I'm glad it worked out on the island for those fuzzy little eukalyptus smelling dropbears.

But I digress! Episode 58 of EMA was one of those really fun crate digging episodes. Notable highlights include Brisbane based producer, DJ and mix engineer Yilki and his track 'Silver Chill'. His innovative style manifests in a compelling live show I'm told, so keep an eye out for any local gigs (I will too!).

Hailing from South Australia, Blood Circle is a solo project of Simon Parker. He has an impressive resume including involvment in bands like Lost Valentinos, Damn Arms, Catcall and Midnight Juggernauts. With a soft spot for dance and electronic music he creates many genres which is his ode to his passion for listening to and creating music. His track 'Mortals' paved the way for an hour of excellent Aussie tunes in episode 58.

Fran (gotta love Fran!) is back in episode 58 with her earwormy bop 'Business'. But while you groove along to this track, there is a serious message behind it, as Fran explains in the show. You're just going to have to listen to find out what it is!

It would hardly be a visit anywhere if music wasn't somehow incorporated! So after my work duties were done, I headed out to the Tropic Fiesta Street Beats event which featured a great lineup including Pete Murray and Art vs. Science. Art vs. Science always put on such an energising show, and so it was only fitting that episode 59 of EMA kicked off with their 2011 hit 'Magic Fountain'. Episode 59 is supercharged with dance beats, including BOHM's latest, 'I'll Be There', Hiroshi Daisuki (also known as Chusap) and his banger 'Hotline' and so much more.
