One-on-one with DJ Lion

As we count down the days to 'White Noise pres. DJ Lion’ on Brown Alley’s iconic garden bar on Friday the 20th of April, we stepped into the cage with the lion himself, Zhivorad Milich. As owner and co-founder of the hugely successful Patent Skillz label and recent signee to Ballroom Records, Zhivorad is quite possibly the Balkans’ finest electronic music export.

Here we get intimate about inspiration, Patent Skillz and movie soundtracks.

One-on-one with Retza

“When I think back to when I first started making music, I didn't even know how to load a kick drum into Ableton… and forget about being able to beat-match a tune!” – Retza.

As we close in on our Melbourne house and techno showcase at New Guernica on Friday the 20th of October, we sat down with arguably one of the most exciting and talented electronic music producers in Australia today.  Retza (a.k.a. Niklaus Retzler) has enjoyed huge success with releases on international labels Watergate, and Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream, and shows no sign of slowing down.  Here we talk about his most recent release with YokoO, the key to success and advice to upcoming DJ’s and producers in Melbourne.

One-on-one with Mensch

“DJ’ing is the way I disconnect… for me, putting on headphones and stepping up to the decks is all it takes”.

As we close in on our Melbourne house and techno showcase at New Guernica on the 20th of October, we caught up with seasoned player Mensch (a.k.a. David Engel) to talk about his most memorable gig, favourite festival experience, albums and movie soundtracks... and how to achieve ‘flow’.

One-on-One with Danny Bonnici

Danny Bonnici has become something of a legend in the Melbourne electronic music scene. From the heady days of Nubreed to live Ableton performances and master audio engineering, his talent seemingly knows no bounds. Danny's latest side project "Bone Itch" has afforded the producer the opportunity to spread his wings even further, and revisit his roots in jazz and funk. A week out from Danny's debut with White Noise Music at New Guernica, he sat down with Luke Lawrence to talk all things Boneitch, favourite albums and movie soundtracks, and the key to creative success.
