Interview

One-on-one with Anthony Pappa

We recently got the chance to sit down with the Godfather of underground house and techno (a.k.a. The "Black Sabbath of Prog”), Anthony Pappa before he joins us Northside for our massive Sunday Session alongside Sydney’s Robbie Lowe, and Melbourne’s disco queen Sunshine.

From cleaning dishes at a wedding reception centre and cars on Sundays to save up for a set of Technics 1200’s… to global success DJing abroad and 16 electronic music albums - one of which is the first instalment of Globalunderground’s "NuBreed" series, Pappa’s career is the stuff dreams are made of.

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 Out of Sorts

“Do what you love, and do it for the right reasons… good things will happen” - Barton Strom (Out of Sorts, NZ).

As the countdown to 'White Noise pres. Out of Sorts’ at New Guernica on the 15th of September 2017 continues… we got to know a little more about Barton Strom, one-half of the hugely successful New Zealand duo, also known as 'Antix & Fiord'.

We talk inspiration, production methods, favourite gigs and albums, and the music scene across the ditch.

One-on-one with Kasey Taylor

From DJ’ing at roller rinks in the Victorian outback, to Melbourne nightclubs and the European circuit - our very own Kasey Taylor has enjoyed a career spanning decades... and he’s definitely not done yet! Between fresh new releases under his very own “Lo-Fi-45” for the likes of Muska, Retza and Thankyou City, this most talented DJ/Producer took some time to go one-on-one with Luke Lawrence before headlining alongside Phil K and Danny Bonnici this Friday at New Guernica.

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.
