All Aussie Adventures with Timmy Byrne (Part 1) | Premium Tuna | Saturday 10:30AM

Over here at Premium Tuna we often get so caught up in bringing you the freshest tunes on the local market that we forget about those mature tuna fish not so readily available anymore.

We got to thinking about all that home grown Australian tuna that’s been around for longer than we have and well, we came up with a new series to explore the topic!

Premium Tuna Presents: All Aussie Adventures with Timmy Byrne (Part 1). 

We wouldn’t be here today without Timmy Byrne (and his wife Kate). They started the Kiss you know and love today from their lounge room many moons ago and while WE have a lot of passion for showcasing Australian produce on our show, it’s safe to say Timmy’s knowledge on this topic spans many more years than ours.

Join us as we head back to school and get further educated on the history and framework of our vibrant local dance music scene. What better way to do so than by handing the reigns over to the man himself for a world class schooling on the last 40 years of Australian dance music.

Tune in Saturday morning 10:30AM-12:00PM for part 1 in our mini series which will feature selections from the formative years of Australian’s dance music scene.

Mount Mike

With a fascination for music, dance, and rhythm from a young age, it took Mike a few years of stealing his mother's crockery and wooden spoons and using them to make 4 to the floor dance floor tuna before he persuaded his parents to buy him a drum kit. He played his drum kit day and night, exploring all manner of eastern time signatures and Afro-beat grooves, absorbing sounds from wherever his dial up internet would allow. He began to compose little songets, and riffage, which he recorded in his bedroom using pre-historic software from the local library. Thus began his interest in computer music and audio production. His ears began to pine for the thumping kick drums he overheard on his sister's Ministry of Sound Annual CD, and upon delving into what exactly made this enticing noise, he discovered Ableton Live and a plethora of electronic music. Now based in Melbourne, Mount Mike has been hard at work for a number of years honing his skills as a producer, club DJ, and most recently radio DJ on Premium Tuna.
