Lask | Interview & Guest Mix on Premium Tuna

Earlier in the year we invited a certain someone onto the show to premiere and talk shop about her debut EP. While we’re big supporters of what this girl’s been doing in the studio we thought it about time to invite her back to give us a lesson in tune selection. Joining the tuna lads in the studio this Saturday morning is Melbourne DJ and producer Alaska Rees-Williams – aka Lask. With an EP out on Smack Bang Recordings and now a follow up track just released on Melbourne long stay Suckmusic, we can’t wait to hear what Lask’s got for the Kiss FM airwaves – maybe even some cheeky unreleased numbers? Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear Alaska lay down one of her signature outdoor inspired minimal tech-athlones this Saturday from 10:30 AM.

Lask’s bio:

Lask has always had a passion for music. After playing instruments and writing music for 5 years, she started producing at the age of 18. She then at the age of 20 started Djing to create a platform for her music. She made her way in to the DJ scene in march 2016 and released her first Ep with Smash Bang records titled Aurora in march 2017. In july 2017 she featured on Suckmusics ‘In the clubs, Volume 9’ with her single ‘Charlie’. In a short amount of time she has played venues and events including, Babylon festival, Revolver Upstairs, Killing time, New guernica, My aeon, Railway hotel, Brown alley, Ferdy duke, Korova, Circus, Chasers night club, 24 moons, Never ending festival, Warehouse parties, River parties, Previously held a fortnightly residency at railway hotel and a monthly residency at Chasers nightclub. She also shares a fortnightly slot on the live stream radio broadcast for SUPERENJOY. Lasks sound can be described as dark, minimal and bass driven but also etches on the sweeter more melodic tones depending on her surroundings. She is not one to play the same set twice and is constantly finding new ways to push different sounds and genres on the dancefloor.

Mount Mike

Mount Mike is Producer & DJ who hails from Melbourne, Australia and currently resides in Vancouver, Canada. Never wavering in his mission to push song and dance beyond the conventions of genre, Mike's taste is broad and doesn't stick to one sound. His music takes on otherworldly tones and textures, bending mood and energy, blending thump and melody. Deep house at the core, his tracks meander through progressive and minimal territory, sometimes even lending from techno. He loves it weird and wonky and is not afraid to blur the boundaries. His DJ sets have landed him slots at Australian festivals such as Strawberry Fields and Babylon and have also seen him support some of the world’s finest acts including personal favourites such as: Stimming, Frankey & Sandrino and Andreas Henberg. Off the stage his role as host on Premium Tuna - a radio show on Kiss FM dedicated to Australian producers and DJs - and director of Under The Nest Music & Arts Festival - a boutique camping festival run in the Winton Wetlands - has cemented his place in the Melbourne scene as one of their own. As a producer, Mike enjoys creating a space where organic and synthetic sounds can meet in emotive harmony. Just like his live sets, he doesn’t like colouring inside the lines. His mantra? There’s a rhythm in everything, you just have to listen for it. His mission? To spread connection and dancing through the emotive and sometimes weirder side of house and techno. Signed to Australian label Suckmusic, Mike's releases have been building momentum with a string of Beatport chartings and Spotify traction. With a number of exciting releases scheduled for the remainder of 2019, Mount Mike is certainly one to watch out for.
