The Formant recently interviewed me about the creative process behind the Rainflow EP.
Rainflow is a change in approach for DROX, one that sees him move away from the contrapuntal raw machine music made for dancing we’ve come to know from the Australian producer and step into ideas of atmosphere and an aural feeling. “There’s definitely that feel — well for me anyway — of that idea of background noise and things in the distance which is what I was trying to convey,“ explains Adrian. It comes together through four magnificent tracks that progress with the ease of a Sunday morning, enveloped in a wispy, fragile atmosphere that crunch just beneath the surface. Like the sound of rain filling every moment of silence, Rainflow bounds with a distant noise, filling in the gaps between the beats as drum machines and synthesisers pulse with repetition like a mantra.

The fourth release on the Analog Cabin label is out today which is also my first solo EP for the label.
These tracks were inspired by one recent rainy winters day.
Here is my recent guest mix for Tracklistings. It is a blend of Techno, Electro and Miami Bass tracks, new and old by Marco Bernardi, Alden Tyrell , Electro Nation, Scratch D, Mr De, Dj Assault among many others..
I was recently gifted a suitcase full of old cassette tapes and a twin deck from a friend who was moving overseas.
I've managed to digitize and upload some of them, with more to come.
It was great to reminisce about parties and local DJ's gone by, some still active today, with others I am unsure what they are up to these days. If you know please add a comment or send me a message.
The uploads so far show a real diversity to what people were playing at the time. Enjoy the music!

We are not sure but whoever it is makes some deep dance floor material.
