Biography

“Westernsynthetics has been one of the most prominent artists flying the dubstep flag in Australia for some time now” – Resident Advisor

“It is clear his sound is among the country’s most original” – Cyclic Defrost

Westernsynthetics is a passionate Producer from Sydney, Australia. His debut album May Day Radio displays “sophisticated high-technology electronica to more soulful traditional style dub, carried throughout by powerful, animated drones and drifts,” says BMP Magazine (South Africa). Westernsynthetics draws from a vast pallet of soundscapes and live instrumentation as well as subversive imagery projected through his lyrics. The May Day Radio debut album received Sunset Album Of The Week on FBi radio on release as well as spins across Australian community radio and national radio station Triple J.

Westernsynthetics’ live shows fuse his unique blend of acid, dub, techno and electronic psychedelia. A regular performer at Australian dubstep nights Westernsynthetics has supported heavyweights Distance, Scuba, Caspa, Skream, Benga, Cotti, 2562, Gravious, Tes La Rok, Spherix, Emalkay and Deadbeat. Festival performances include Rainbow Serpent and Peats Ridge Festival, Australia.

In September 2011 Westernsynthetics showcased his productions internationally, embarking on his first international tour to Europe and Croatia. This tour included a performance at world renowned Outlook Festival in Croatia 2011 to a sold out Festival crowd. Significantly, this is the first time an Australian Producer has been invited to play the Festival. Outlook has been described as "the best four days of bass music in Europe, if not the world" by Resident Advisor.

In 2009 Westernsynthetics was nomination for ‘Best Instrumental Composition’ category in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards for his debut 12” LP Engine No. 999.

Engine No. 999 and May Day Radio are released on Sub Continental Dub and distributed internationally by renowned UK imprint Cargo Records.
