On Friday the 15th of March, we open New Guernica’s doors to Calcutta’s techno don and founder of Soupherb Records, Ash Roy. Between festival bookings, international tours and brand new production releases, Ash sat down with us to talk about what inspires his music, his favourite movie and the development of India’s underground house and techno community.
From the colourful markets of Sao Paulo, to the white-hot beaches of Sydney… Hoten, the sun-drenched Brazilian phenomenon of house and techno (a.k.a. Wendell Benjamin) is en route to for a one-night-only party showcase alongside Robbie Lowe.
Dive deep into Hoten’s musical genius ahead of this Friday’s event and discover his inspiration, favourite album and what’s on the horizon for his co-founded label, 43 Degree Records.
We recently had a chat with super bloke and co-founder of Arteq, Kirk Chetcuti before he joins us for our next party at “home base” New Guernica this Friday.
Kirk digs deep into the archives to talk about where his musical roots lie…. and why a common, logical food combination doesn’t quite float his boat.
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.
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.
“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.
“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’.
“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.
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.
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.
DJ / producer Sunshine has been gracing the decks of Melbourne nightclubs for years. The Revolver resident and founder of the 'Disco Faith Choir' sat down with us recently to talk about her new label, why dogs are the best and what originally inspired her to pursue a career as a DJ.
Luke Lawrence, White Noise Music's founder, caught up with Paul Suares (a.k.a. Bass to Pain Converter) to find out what's behind the mask.
