What is Electronic Music Australia?
Updated: May 30, 2022
Electronic Music Australia has been created to put the spotlight on Australian artists across all electronic music genres, past, present, and beyond. Whether showcasing the hottest up-and-coming club bangers, or remembering the tracks that bring back hazy memories of nights on sweaty dance floors, Electronic Music Australia aims to deliver a range of sounds including Indie Dance, House and DnB, all the way down to the depths of the underground.
Thank you so much for being here, and if you happened to tune in to the first episode of Electronic Music Australia when it aired on Monday, 7 March on 105.7 Radio Metro, an extra big thank you to you! I can honestly say I love each track so much from this first episode and I hope you do too. Be sure to check out the full track listing below.
I kicked off the hour with Egg of Sunday by Barney In the Tunnel, the latest project from Sydney's Barney Kato, who I have been a MASSIVE fan of easily for around ten years now, and Ash Moses (Tunnel Signs). This song just lifts me up and puts me in the best mood, it’s from the record Hug House which is out on Doe Dee.
I have a confession to make, I really love DnB and Dub. This probably came from my roots of obsessive fandom of The Prodigy (more on that in an upcoming post). In this episode I feature two fantastic tracks, Royalston with Modular Jungle Dub and Brainwork with Always You.
I want to mention the two incredible female producers in this week’s episode, Pretty Girl and Purient. From Melbourne, there must be something in the water down there because both have produced utterly stunning tracks that feature their own vocals. Arc, from Pretty Girl (Emilia Predebon) was sent to me by a friend last year, and I literally played it twenty times in a row that day. This song has the power to make you sing, dance and cry all at the same time and I love that for us.
I wrapped up the show with Memories from Purient (Kate Durman). I can’t get enough of the underground, industrial qualities of this track. Check out the official music vid too.
I hope you enjoy the first episode of Electronic Music Australia as much as I enjoyed making it. I would love to hear from you – what tracks would you like to hear on the show? Get in touch with me via the contact page or socials.
