This month was a bit quiet for Underground Sound, but I still managed to share heaps of great Australian house and techno music. I’m still working very hard on the site. There will be some new Interviews and Signals dropping very soon, so stay tuned!

If you have free music or a DJ set you would like to have featured on the site, please contact me at:

Underground Sound 2019

(Posted in Blog)

2018 was a monumental year for Underground Sound, and I have just as much planned for 2019. The format that was established – Free Music, DJ Sets, Interviews and the addition of Signals Sets, will remain. That is the endgame for Underground Sound, which will be six years old in May. But you can expect a lot more content this year as I endeavour to work on the site even more often than I did last year. Long may that continue!

I was studying a Diploma of Website Development and have completed that course, earning my diploma. I have also had my first article for Decoded Magazine published, an interview with Melbourne’s one and only Jamie Stevens. That will not prevent me from working on Underground Sound this year, in fact it is motivating me to do more. Music is largely about the community that surrounds it, and we have a very strong and faithful community of house and techno fans here in Australia.

I will be getting into Mixcloud for Underground Sound this year and following more Aussie artists. I’ll also be making some changes to who I’m following on SoundCloud, to ensure that I can follow all of the artists whose music is on the Underground Sound website, in spite of the following limit of 2000 that is enforced on there. Please feel free to repost as many of the exclusive DJ Sets on those platforms from Underground Sound that you can, especially if you know the artists personally.

Thank you for your support, and thank you for listening!

2018 Epilogue

(Posted in Blog)

2018 was such a big year for Underground Sound, it well and truly surpassed anything I have done with the site previously. So I thought it would be worthwhile to write a summary of everything that happened, including a bunch of statistics for those who are interested in that sort of thing.

There were 12 Interviews with Australian house and techno artists this past year, five of which included exclusive DJ sets:

2018 saw the debut of a new type of content for the site – Underground Sound Signals. These short articles feature an exclusive DJ set from an artist and information about what they have on the horizon, such as events or record releases:

December 2018

What a great end to the year December was for Underground Sound! This month there were two exclusive Signals sets featured, along with a bunch of excellent Australian house and techno music.

My old mate Rich Curtis kindly shared with us a recording of one his sets from another one of his annual tours of South America. It was his sixth trip there in as many years, and it was very nice to get a sense of what is happening over there in the house and techno scene with this extended set of his. Rich has another big event coming up, supporting Hernan Cattaneo at the 10th anniversary of Lemon & Lime, at Capulet in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

The other Signals set this month came from Spain’s ARTjona, who has been living in Brisbane and making a name for himself here. Carlos had a new EP out with MOTION and featured both tracks from the record in his set for Underground Sound, which I must say is a really enjoyable hour of music. Both of them played at an event for DEEPER LIFE that was streamed live from Frequencies on New Years Day. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from ARTjona this year!

November 2018

November was a fantastic month for Underground Sound, with a new Interview, my first Event Review, and a new Signals set as well.

I really enjoyed interviewing Brisbane DJ and promoter Tom., ahead of his gig at Sasha (UK) Brisbane Show. Tom. writes just like he talks, and it was great getting to know him and his brands a bit better. I remember when I first met him, at Subtrakt presents Danny Howells at The Wickham of all places. He made a point of introducing himself and his mates, and the Subtrakt crew who were running the event. Lovely bloke!

The event Tom. played at in November was something else. It was the first time Sasha had graced Capulet, and boy was it popular. The online tickets to the event sold out within two hours of going on sale. You can read my review of the event on the Underground Sound Facebook page. It was a very special day for clubbing in Brisbane.

Then there was this month’s Signals set from April Kerry. This was really cool. April emailed me out of the blue, with some info about herself and her impressive career thus far, and expressed her interest in recording a DJ set for Underground Sound. We were able to make it happen in time to promote Hidden Valley at Capulet. April has ability and a repertoire of music well beyond her years. I was seriously impressed by her Signals set, but that was eclipsed for me by her DJ set when I went and saw her play at the event, where she dropped some very lush progressive and melodic house and techno. It was great to meet her too. Keep an ear out for this talented young lady from Byron Bay. We’ll be hearing more from her in Brisbane soon!
