STEREOSONIC AUSTRALIA REVEALS 2015 LINE-UP

AUSTRALIA'S BRIGHT FUTURE

Shrimps on the barbie, Crocodile Dundee, Bondi Beach, Steve Irwin, Kylie Minogue, the Sydney Opera House; Australia has always touted — for better or worse — its own strong and symbolic sense of identity.

Its dance music scene has some equally notable and iconic acts (cue The Presets, Cut Copy or more recently, Flume), who've achieved a ubiquitous level of overground success, but it's Australia's underground scene that's starting, slowly but surely, to bubble.

TENAGLIA MIXES THE NEXT BALANCE COMP

Balance, the acclaimed Australian mix CD series with one of the best reps in the game, has enticed US house/techno legend Danny Tenaglia to mix their latest release 'Balance 025'. It's the DJ's first mix CD release in six years.

SCENE FOCUS: AUSTRALIA

Each month we shine a light on a leading global location for electronic music, showcasing the international scenes that are making a splash on the world stage.

Sometimes the focus is on emerging scenes - those who are still in the building stage. Other times they are fully-fledged dance music powerhouses. Australia is most definitely the latter.

APPEAL FOR AUSTRALIAN DJ INJURED IN CRASH

Australian DJ/producer Jack McCord, brand manager and global ambassador for Hed Kandi and now based back in his hometown of Sydney, is in a “serious but stable” condition in hospital following a motorbike crash last Friday.

PREMIERE: THE PRESETS

Golden duo, The Presets, is one of Australia’s most highly acclaimed dance music acts. With seven ARIA Awards under their belt and a global tour schedule that won’t let up, people are flocking to the rapturous rave The Presets put forward.

The Presets’ technicolor single, 'Goodbye Future', is a Botox injection to the spirit, lifting listeners up - only without the high cost.

AVICII TO HEADLINE FUTURE MUSIC FEST

Avicii has today announced that he will headline the dance stage at Australia's Future Music Festival.
