This month was an exciting one for Underground Sound, with another in-depth interview with an exclusive DJ set, and the launch of a new form of content for the site.

It was great to interview my good mate Rob Glasgow, a well-known DJ and promoter from Brisbane. He recorded 90 minutes of techno for us and played at two absolutely wicked events here.

The new content I mentioned was the first edition of Underground Sound Signals, an exclusive DJ set series. Boy with Boat stepped up as our opening contributor, with a very nice hour of music that included his free track Small Joy, out on Frisson Records.

I bit the bullet and added the “Melodic” section to the DJ Sets category this month, as I’m finding more and more sets include tracks categorised as Melodic House & Techno on Beatport. It has certainly made my life easier as I don’t have to listen again to samples of every track in sets that I post in that category to determine if they are deep house, progressive house, or melodic techno. There is a lot of new music coming out in that fairly vague melodic genre. It is a thing. I’m considering adding “Leftfield” too.

August 2018

Underground Sound is going from strength to strength, and August was another great month of content that I am really proud of. Thank you to everyone in Australia’s underground house and techno community, especially those whom I have had the privilege of featuring on the site. There is some new and exciting content coming in September that I know you will enjoy.

August featured two DJ interviews, with a couple of mates of mine from Brisbane’s house music scene. The first was with Turkish expat and lovable lad Hakan Henry, who ran the excellent drũm parties at Montague with Rikki Newton. Hakan was moving to Japan and there was a special farewell edition of drũm for him. We had a great night.

I also had the opportunity to interview legendary Brisbane DJ and all around good bloke Fergus Alexander, ahead of his back to back set with Mike Redfern at Dragonfruit Fridays pres. Jamie Stevens at Capulet. What a night that was, the typically diverse Dragonfruit Fridays crowd dancing to some of the finest house and techno music Australia has to offer, courtesy of Mr Jamie Stevens and friends.

July 2018

July was a big month for Underground Sound and things will keep picking up, as I have had more time to work on the site lately. This month I got to interview two blokes with excellent taste in house and techno music, who both happen to be from New South Wales. They were both kind enough to record DJ sets exclusively for Underground Sound as well, and each is of exceptional quality.

To many in Sydney’s underground electronic music scene, Simon Mann is someone who needs no introduction. In July he played a live hardware set for the second time in Brisbane at Unison II – Live House, Techno & Ambient at The Brightside. I had met Simon before when he played at Capulet for a Buxton Records party in 2016, and I was really happy to get to know him a bit better with this interview.

This month I also got to interview my mate Jamie Grenenger, who is from New South Wales originally, but has been throwing parties in Brisbane for years now. Jamie is supporting Barbuto at Capulet for Dragonfruit Fridays pres. Decoded & friends – Barbuto, and he is one of the men behind the forthcoming IWTFA Pres. Cleric (Clergy / Figure / Soma- UK) techno event at The Brightside. The interview with him turned out really well, and has had a great response.

June 2018

June was a fantastic month for Underground Sound, with two new interviews and an exclusive DJ set. I was really happy to finally publish an interview with my good friend Anna Sonnenburg, who helped organise a Prince Tribute Party at the Hamilton Hotel. It was a wonderful night, heaps of people turned up and danced and sang along to the music of the late artist known as Prince.

I also had the pleasure of interviewing Scottish songstress Mha iri, who has been making things happen in the techno scene in Melbourne. She played at La Vibrations & Bass Swag Present Eat The Beat Showcase (Melb) at Capulet, and it was a really fun night with some great music. I was fortunate enough to attend the after party at Frequencies TV, which was a whole lot of fun too. Mha iri kindly recorded an exclusive DJ set for Underground Sound, which has already had more than 400 plays on SoundCloud.

I was so busy with these interviews, and a third one that is coming very soon, that I decided not to post any free music or DJ sets this month. I was also finishing the semester of study. July will see the return of that content.
