Electronic Music Conference‘s EMC Play is just around the corner and with an ever-growing list of talent discovered at the burgeoning industry event, there is no better time to check out the “next big thing”. Previous EMC Play showcases have included the likes of Paces, Nicole Millar, Young Franco, UV Boi, Running Touch, Ivan Ooze and even Peking Duk.
With so many female DJs & producers hitting the literal main-stage in recent times, it stands to reason that the next Alison Wonderland, Nina Las Vegas or Anna Lunoe could be sitting our right under our noses.
She has already performed at Coachella, toured the US with RÜFÜS and Hayden James, and next she’s bound for Australian festival stages such as Beyond The Valley, Southbound and Spilt Milk. Her first (and only release to date) was released via Sweat It Out earlier this year – not off a bad start there Dena Amy!
Currently in LA is the Sydney-based bass-bombshell SIPPY, who will be performing at EMC Play upon her homecoming. Yet to release an official original track, SIPPY aka Laura Patterson has already built up a solid reputation for through her live performance stills that even earned her a place at Defqon.1 this year – check out a sneak peak here.
Hailing from Perth WA is the Pilerats Records signee Tina Says, producing her own brand of quirky future beats cross bass-house. She’s already lit up the young-gun slots at Splendour In The Grass and Castaway festivals, perhaps next time she returns it’ll be closing out the mainstage Flume-style?
Melbourne Victorian College of the Arts Jazz Vocalist graduate turn party-connoisseur MIMI has built up quite the impressive portfolio of gigs; everything from her own parties CRXZY SXXY CXXL to recently being handpicked as the touring warm-up DJ to TLC’s sold-out shows.
Fans of bassy g-house should make sure to catch NatNoiz. A staple of the Sydney club scene over the last few years, Nat has recently come into her own with a development in her personal sound and brand. Listening to her last few releases on through her freshly-inked deal with Unknown Records it is clear that NatNoiz is poised to take that next step up.
This duo, comprised of Laura Bailey & Kat Harley, are more often seen behind the synth, guitars and mic than the DJ decks, though the pair have an incredible raw electronic sound that is ready to dominate the festival stages of 2017. I first caught Mezko by accident when they were supporting another band and they quickly went to the top of my “ones to watch” list.
