After taking a bit of a hiatus from performances for personal reasons, Moonbase has come back swinging. Having hosted a huge charity event just the other week it seems like he’s ready to get back on the live electronic horse and throw out the bangers that we’ve come to love from the guy.
This week sees him play the hottest event in town, our very own Halloween Rave, so we thought we’d pick his brain with some quick-fire questions on what he’s vibing, who the future of AUS dance music is and where it’s heading, check it out below!
Stoney Roads: What Australian artists are you really excited about right now?
Moonbase: There are so many fresh Australian artists to pick out and spotlight right now, which is amazing. In particular, I’ve been rinsing Sophiya, Trophie, Adult Art Club and Kota Banks heaps lately!
SR: What is the future of Australian dance music? What genres will be popping?
MB: I have no idea (laughs), which makes it so exciting. A lot of young producers coming up at the moment are pulling from a huge and diverse range of different inspirations. That being said, there’s some certified heat happening around the UK bassline and garage sounds in Aus right now.
SR: What advice/steps would you tell up-coming artists? What can prepare them for a career in music?
MB: My advice is this: just keep hammering. Not every musical idea is going to sound amazing right off the bat, especially when you’re starting out. But keep pushing and you’ll find something fresh.
SR: What’s the secret to your on-stage energy? How do you deliver time and time again?
MB: Personally, there’s no ‘preparation’ as such. I’m very thankful to be in a position where I can perform and play my own music to audiences, so what you see at my shows is a reflection of that energy.
You can catch Moonbase killing it at our halloween rave this Friday October 26, RSVP here for quick entry, but in the mean time check out his killer tune ft. Anderson .Paak to get you hyped!
