Seems like yearly is the greatest 12 months ever for dance music in Australia however we’re fairly positive this re-cap of 2018 releases cements that title past doubt!
The mix-er Sandro Dallarmi is a constant voice of the aus dance and digital music scene heading up a present on FBi radio in addition to the Aus Dance membership group on Facebook in addition to numerous different accolades together with at all times being the tallest particular person on the membership… so he’s obtained a reasonably clear view of what was popping by way of final 12 months.
His combine, bounces by way of all of it with lavish cuts of electronically massaged hip-hop and beats from Miss Blanks, Kwame and Awwy to up-beat vibrant slices of digital goodness from Young Franco and Cosmo’s Midnight.
House and techno your factor? All is nicely with releases from Made in Paris, Willaris Okay and Mall Grab in addition to membership hitters from NLV, Rebel Yell, Nite Fleit and lots of, many extra.
Sandro tells is greatest although dropping within the Soundcloud description;
Despite the sustained political stress on dance music tradition in Australia, we’re nonetheless making a few of the most fun membership thumpers I’ve heard in my complete mf life!!
Over the previous couple of years, a whole lot of scenes have splintered off into tiny niches and located energy on their very own, however now it appears like we’re breaking into 2019 with a renewed angle of cross-genre collaboration, and that makes me sososo excited to place out this combine.
We’ve obtained rappers developing in golf equipment, indie pop stars teaming up with progressive dance producers, and a swelling resurgence of home and techno that’s been taking up the nation’s warehouses and festivals. There are new events and labels staking their declare, new artists levelling up and pushing to the entrance, and a brand new era of membership children with their heads of their laptops, able to push the following wave of music that we’re not prepared for but.
With all this in place, I believe we’re gonna discover one thing actually particular on the core of Australian dance music over the following few years. All we’ve gotta do is enable our large range of concepts, philosophies and identities to overlap — kinda like they do on this combine.
You might in all probability get by way of the 2 hours and forty or so minutes in a single sitting or revisit time and again as an enduring reminiscence of some significantly simmering Australian music!
