Ahead of Alice Ivy's new album 'Don’t Sleep' dropping tomorrow, the Melbourne musician shares some of the locals artists she loves that are making a difference to the Australian electronic scene.
One of the most talented producers coming out of Australia right now and paving her own way in electronic dance music. I love Nina’s choice of sound textures, nothing slaps harder than a Ninajirachi drop honestly!
Maribelle (aka Vetta Borne)
One of the most inspiring artist-producers I know. Maribelle and I were roomies at a writing camp a few months back and she taught me a neat couple of little vocal production tips. Don’t sleep on Vetta Borne!
Aka Techno Mum. Her recent release Energy” with Stace Cadet is the ultimate pick me up. KLP also runs an all-female/non-binary music camp called “Ricochet”. I’d say it’s the best songwriting camp in Australia going on at the moment.
I had the pleasure of touring with Sparrows and not only is she the most down to earth legend, her production and songwriting is next level.

Memphis and I used to share a studio together in Brunswick! Memphis is also just running in her own lane; I love the underlying UK garage style beats, and all of them tasty vocal chops.
The first time I saw Simona live was upstairs at Boney in Melbourne a few years back. Her live show brought so much energy. Simona played solo with a bunch of sample pads - I think a Roland Octapad - and played drums all the way through. It was amazing!
Oh my god, she produces, sings, raps, mixes and masters. I don’t think there’s anything that she CAN’T do. I haven’t had the privilege of seeing her live but on record everything Milan Ring has put out is absolutely stunning.
I love Strict Face! I’ve had the pleasure of playing a couple of shows with him in Adelaide. I remember this one show he kept hitting this eagle cry sample all throughout his DJ set, SO good. Anyway, his production is super dope.
Alice Ivy’s Don’t Sleep is out tomorrow, Friday 17 July. Check it out here.
